Domain Name Expiration Notice
Q: I received a notice from Domain Registry of America stating that I must renew my domain name to retain exclusive rights to it on the Web. Do I need to pay this?
A: NO. The “notice,” which looks more like a bill than a notice, gives the impression that a domain you own is about to expire and must be renewed. If you read on, you will see in bold print “This notice is not a bill”. If you receive a notice from Domain Registry of America, DO NOT SEND MONEY. Disregard this letter.
