Domain Renewal Letter Scam

If you have a hosting account with Kinex, you know that each year you must renew your domain name to keep it active. Recently some of our customers have reported receiving letters in the US Mail from Domains of America and other companies asking them to send payment to renew their domains.

This is a scam; these companies do regular WhoIS searches online to gather a mailing list to solicit your business and money. Kinex DOES send out similar domain renewal letters and emails reminding our customers ahead of time that the domain will need to be renewed. The DIFFERENCE is that our letters will come to you on Kinex letterhead. If you have questions about a letter you have received asking you to renew your domain, don’t hesitate to call our office and speak to one of our staff. We can help you determine whether it is legitimate.
