Domain Name Renewal Scam

It has come to our attention that a new scammer is flooding domain name registrants with a Registration Expiration notice sent via email.

We would like to warn all current domain owners of the scam and to be cautious when reading and acting upon the email. The scammers use publicly available domain WHOIS services to locate contact information for operation of the scam.

Customers should ignore any such emails and always check WHOIS to confirm domain registrar whenever unsure of the current domain name status.

If you are concerned about your WHOIS information listing your personal contact details (allowing everyone include scammers to contact you directly), we recommend that you consider enabling Domain Privacy for your registrations. Domain Privacy is an addon service attracting a small fee that can be organised by contacting us.

A screenshot of the email scam is shown below:
