Yesterday I got a letter sent to me about one of the .com domain names I owned, I got it from Vidahost last June or July (by the way Vidahost are one of the BEST hosting companies out there!). I’d only paid for it for a year as they were doing a 99p deal on .com’s. So the fact this letter wasn’t actually from Vidahost, but a company called ‘Domain Renewal Group’ instantly made me wonder what it was about. They were asking me to send them £25 to renew the domain for another year, £40 for two years or £90 for five years, there was a slip at the bottom for me to send them back my credit card details ready to renew with them.

It does mention that this isn’t a bill, and that by paying them, you’d have to switch your name servers / DNS to them etc. So there are some strands of truth within it, but to the untrained, and quick reading eye, it does look like a bill for domain renewal – it just feels slightly ‘scammy’ to me. I imagine they just go through all the domain names with contact details and get in touch around renewal time to try and get people to give them money for their services.

Any way, have a little look at the letter..

Scam, or no scam – what do you think? Google suggests they are shady scammers..
