Fake Domain Name Renewals
At one point or another you may have received a letter in the mail looking a little bit like this or something close to it. Be aware that this is fake! Your domain may be up for renewal but it is with the company you originally purchased it often times the same as your website hosting company. These companies troll the online databases and can see when domains are up for renewal and who owns them. They then send out a letter trying to get people to renew with them and charge extremely high rates usually quadruple what you would normally pay! My domain renewal is only $10 per year not $45. They are trying to even say I could get a discount for 5 years “only” paying $180. Watch out and don’t get fooled!
