I get many questions relating to letters or emails asking for renewal of your domain name services.

Some come by email and some from post.

Another common one is the “Final Notice” domain listing email. This email is trying to scare you into a hurried renewal of services and is a blatant scam.

There are plenty more like this so a quick Google search will tell you all about these scams too.

Stay safe.
