Domain Renewal Hoax or Real?
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

Hi everyone,

It is time for me to renew my domain name honestmoneymaking.com so that I do not lose it to someone else! So I did that online via Domain Registry of Canada, but shortly after I paid, I got this email from Namejuice.com saying something like I need to transfer my domain over to them, and then pay bla bla. I have to do this by Sept.25th, or WHAT!? I don't know!! I already renewed and now I have to transfer it to a different company and pay more for this?

They offered a couple of support contact email address in case I have questions about this, so I sent one to Domain Registry of Canada asking if this is for real or a hoax! I get so much junk email I don't know what's real and what's not anymore! I have not received a reply and it's almost Sept.25th.

Anyone heard of this? What to do?

Liane

Re-register with you're current registrar only. Once you've made sure that it's renewed with your registrar, anything you get from anyone else is BS.

Sounds like some aggressive and underhanded marketing tactics to me.

Absolutely ignore them.

This is certainly a scam email.

Renew registrations only at your current registrar. Do not transfer names to other registrars based on unsolicited emails.

This might help.
