BEWARE of DOMAIN SCAMS!

Posted by Newberry Area SBDC on June 20, 2015 at 2:25 PM

Domain Renewal SCAMS. This is also a HUGE scam and you will get notices that look so legitimate that you will scramble for your wallet to renew your domain through this company that is telling you that you have 30 days or you will lose it. If you purchased your domain through Go Daddy or Webs.com , then that is who you renew with. (those are about the only companies I work with, there are a million out there and I can't really be an expert at them all, so those are the ones I can help you with the most).


I'ved helped some folks get their domains after they have expired.  It isn't fun - and you will pay fees.  Please don't let your domain expire, especially if your account and emails are linked up.  Auto renewal is an option that works great!  That is probably the only thing ever I'd auto renew on a credit (with the exception of my spin class :-) 


 

If you get a letter or email that worries you, please don't hesitate to forward it to me. I will be glad to look at it. Email is generally the best way to reach me - so scan it or even take a picture of it with your phone and send it to me and I'll let you know if it is legit. You don't want your domain to ever expire, so don't automatically delete all of the godaddy and or webs emails you see, so please keep that in mind. You can email me straight from your text: [email protected]

 


I hope these tips were helpful!
