Domain Registry Scam

January 4th, 2010 | Industry

Once a year I get a snappy reminder to renew my domain name – but not from the current registrar. Domain Registry of Canada is an unsolicited third party that is hoping you’re not going to scour the fine print and pay the premium to renew with them.

I would sooner let my domain expire and blow away than renew with these fiends. My two cents.

    We have to warn clients about those guys sometimes too. Most of our clients are the type of people who would fall for it which is one of the reasons we always set the admin contact to ourselves.

    I haven’t heard any of them mention actual letters though. We just see the e-mails asking them to renew.
