Many domain name registrars send out notices, and bills, even though you do not have your domain name registered with them. Worse, they tend to charge more money, and, sometimes they can tie up your domain name to the point where you end up losing it or paying an extraordinary sum of money to get it back.
For most clients, your web site included a domain name and is included and paid for with your annual fee. If you get a domain name renewal notice or bill, please do not renew or pay without checking with contacting us. We will be happy to assist you in whatever way we can.
