Is That Domain Letter a Scam? ๐Ÿ›‘ Yes! Don’t Renew Your Domain That Way!

You should never renew a domain through a physical letter! “Is That Domain Letter a Scam?” Yup.

Some of you may have received a physical letter that your domain needs to be renewed and you will lose your domain if you don’t renew with her. Here is why this is typically a scam, or at the very least, a website hustle:

(Website Hustle: That Domain Letter is a Scam on YouTube)

1. Your domain name company rarely, if ever would send you any physical communication.

Your credit card is online. You receive emails from your domain hosting company. Quite often the senders of these emails will not even know what your business is, and these emails are autogenerated.

2. The price lists at $50 per year.

Websites rarely cost more than $20 per year, so it’s highly overpriced. Sometimes if you have a domain that is very short with a huge appeal, you can pay more! But chances are that your domain, on average, will cost no more than $20 per year!

3. The letter says “This is not a bill” in bold.

Legally these people are required to explicitly say that they are not your currently company and that they are not trying to collect a bill.

Somewhere on the document it will say ‘This is not a bill’, and it is required to stand out on the document.

4. It is the least secure way you can send your credit card information!

They ask for your card number in the document! Can you imagine your credit card information floating around the physical mail system?! Anyone who touches the letter could find your credit card information!

They hope that you call and give your credit card over the phone, but this is a random company! They are not your typical domain hosting company.

Summary: Physical Letters in the Mail Will Nearly Always Be a Hustle

You will rarely, if ever, receive legitimate account updates in the physical mail. If you receive them, just throw them away. If you think it could be legitimate, do the smart team and log in directly to your domain name account. You will see a notification there if something is wrong with your domain name.
