Yesterday in the mail I got a notice from VeriSign with the following:
Domain Name Expiration Notice

I stuck me as odd that I was getting a renewal notice so quickly, I just bought the buzolich.com domain in January….and wait, I registered with EasyDNS.com, not VeriSign. This is pretty shady.
I’ve read posting about how companies are basically stealing your business when acting like a renewal notice. They do disclose in step three that you need to “Sign the form to authorize payment and transfer to VeriSign.” The first time through I missed the transfer part and I was looking for it.
There are too many companies using spam and posing like something they aren’t so it must be working…or tricking a lot of people. It’s pretty rare to get a real deal in the mail or via spam….I would have just throw the letter away if I wasn’t interested in writing an entry about it. In that vein, how do I get credit card companies to stop sending me credit cards? They don’t seem to care that I’m rather unemployed right now…
VeriSign has lost any future business I would have given them.
Editor’s Note: All domain registrations are now done with godaddy.com
