This is great advice – after all, your domain name is your brand online and you need to protect it. I work for Register.com and I can confirm we do not contact customers through a third party to renew their domains. Additionally, if our customers ever receive a suspicious communication or have any questions at all - they can call us anytime at 1-888-REGISTER (1-888-734-4783).


Personally I own several domain names and it still amazes me and at time confuses at the steady emails or letters I receive on my in box with offers to renew my domain name.

I think if one is not careful, some one might end up doing something that they might regret later due to lack of information.

Thank you for this great post, I'm sure it will help someone.

I have a friend who fell victim to this scam. I own tons of domain names, and have gotten these emails a few times.
