Domain Registry Jersey City, NJ Scam

Standard

This may appear to be your standard Domain registry form to renew your domain, but looks can be deceiving. This is a scam. You can send your payment to them, but your domain won’t be registered.

I have been getting these for years to renew my domains, and I usually always throw them in the trash because I have no use for them, but, I thought it was time I actually looked this up on the internet to find out what the deal is, and that’s when I found this website which says it’s a scam.

Here’s the thing. My web host automatically renews my domain every year and they charge me $12.99. This company wants to charge me $50 for one year, which means, well I was going to subtract the amount they would profit, but considering they wouldn’t actually renew my domain, they would profit 100% of that $50 and I would be $50 short because I would still end up paying $13 for my domain renewal. They are also offering to charge me the same price for a .org and .net, but I don’t want those because my book is not an organization and I don’t need .net for the same reason, it’s not a network. I only need .com. So basically I’m saying if you ever go to my website with .org or .net, that’s fake, the .com is the domain I registered my website under when I published my book Diary of a Gay Nerd on Amazon and Barnes & Noble in 2012.

So, if you have a domain, just let your host automatically renew it. Don’t be fooled by these notices because they are just trying to confuse people and make you feel pressured to send them money.
