Domain Registry of American Necessary?

  • Question
  • Updated 8 years ago
I just received a letter from Domain Registry of America informing me my domain name expires in September. I thought I paid Yola for my domain. Is this something for which I should have concern. I choose Yola so I didn't have to get involved in all this other stuff.
Appreciate your help and time. Thanks,

Hi Norman,

I have just checked the Yola Site and you can disregard this email.

Here is what the Yola website says

I received a bill in the mail today from "Domain Registry of America" to renew my domain - why am I getting this email?

It is important to note that there are certain domain registrars who send unsolicited emails asking people to transfer and renew their domains with them. These domain registrars get your contact information from WHOIS because your domain registration details are publicly available. You can choose to make your details private by purchasing domain privacy at USD9.95 per year (please contact support if you would like to do this).

You can safely ignore any emails about your domain renewal that do not come from Yola directly. When we send the renewal reminder to you, we will use a Yola letterhead and Yola email address so that you know it comes from us. We *will not* allow your domain to expire without giving you an opportunity to renew it first.

Yola will contact you themselves when your domain is up for renewal.

Hope this helps,

John M
