Avoid bogus domain name renewal invoices
Some domain registrars may target unsuspecting domain owners with domain expiration notices that are disguised as renewal invoices or official government notices. These fake “invoices”, which can arrive by postal mail or e-mail, are actually solicitations to transfer your domain away from your current registrar. This almost always results in a significantly higher cost, with no additional benefit.
Pay close attention to any domain renewal notices or invoices you may receive, and check to make sure that they are from your domain's actual registrar.
