Rosalie's Rant

The cheaters are getting more clever. I received a fax from "Domain Registry Support" with an "Urgent Notice of Domain Extension," with lots of legalese under a heading of "In Accordance with the United States Legal Code," and including a paragraph beginning "Evidence of Registration and Use in Bad Faith."

It was a sales solicitation for another domain name!

Read this stuff carefully. I periodically get calls from clients who have received emails or faxes and are concerned that their domain name or hosting has expired. Don't mistake a sales solicitation for a genuine renewal notice. And watch those, too. A few months ago we were treated to domain name sales pitches couched as renewals. Read your mail, and you can discard most of it. - Rosalie
