Yet Another Domain Renewal Scam

Domain Renewal Group seem to be using the same modus operandi as Domain Registry of America (DROA) – they may even be the same company for all I know!

In any case here’s a sample letter (click to enlarge):

Notice the pricing on a .org domain – €28 per annum!!!! We charge less than €6 at the moment and I honestly can’t understand why anyone would even dream of paying more than €10.

In any case if you get any of these letters I suggest dumping them – I’ve had a nice thick pile of them to date!

    I’ve got loads of these myself, listing ones from my Blacknight account, and some from other hosting providers. They are very irritating and worrying that these details were lifted from the WHOIS.

    Simplest solution is to just bin them.

    Yes, that’s exactly what I do… after I give a nice big laugh at them and wonder how they expect us to pay the huge prices quoted!
