iDNS sends out letters titled "Domain Name Expiration Notice" to make it look like you need to renew your internet domain name with them (even though you already have the domain registered under another registrar). This is obviously a very deceptive business practice.

Company is attempting to trick website owners into paying them for the domains they already own. They falsely claim the domain is expiring soon and that you have to pay them to retain it. Really they're trying to get you to purchase other related domains through them. Other domains you don't need and will in no way save your initial domain from is proper expiry date. Shady and misleading!!

My company received a notice in the mail from iDNS stating that our domain would expire if we did not renew before the given date. It lead us to believe that they were our domain company and that we needed to proceed with the renewal in order to avoid a lapse in service.

Company initially sends number of false emails suggesting your domain name will be lost if you dont act soon, then they send out the mail which is designed to look like an invoice. They will catch people with it. The worst part is they are not even competitively priced in the market. Disgusting! And the fact they are still operating suggests a pathetic apathy by the government of Ontario. There is another shock.

I got a letter in the mail saying that my domain name was up for renewal, and they wanted money to renew. The context of the letter suggested my old provider was no longer renewing my domain name.

My business received a letter in the mail titled "Domain Name Expiration Notice". States we must return the invoice with our credit card number to renew our internet domain name (they had the correct domain name). There is an option for 1 year renewal - $45, 2 year renewal - $80 or 5 year renewal - $180. They also offered optional domain name purchases for similar domain names. Very realistic invoice, I'll bet several people will fall for it.

Our office received hard-copy invoices to renew multiple domains expiring within the next six months. The invoices look very official, however in bold lettering the print says, "This notice is not a bill, it is rather an easy means of payment should you decide to switch your domain name registration to Internet Domain Name Services."

One invoice ended up getting paid, while the other made it to my desk before processing. Our domains are locked but I am taking steps to ensure we don't lose control over the domain over the interim.

A few general rules of thumb: Re-registering domains for the year should only cost $10-$20 (not $45! That is a crock); Your registrar will never send you a paper copy of anything like this--they will send you and email; Lastly, this function is often renewed automatically, within 12 months of the previous purchase (they are not going to remind you 6 months prior to the expiration, or make you pay several months in advance).

Hopefully this is helpful for someone in future, see attached document for a sample invoice--Read the print, the language sounds like a scam!

This is the second time I've gotten a scam letter from Internet Domain Name Services (IDNS). They send me a "Domain Name Expiration Notice" and tell me it's going to expire soon and ask me to provide a credit card number to extend my domain name.

Letter from company asking to renew domain name. Buried in the document is the disclosure that this is not a renewal, but rather switching your service. Seems likely he a scam. .ae domain and NJ postal address seems suspicious.

Total money lost $180
Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

I paid IDNS $180 to register for the website for 5 years of exclusive web rights. The check, # 2494 was cashed on 12/2/16. I received a notice a few weeks ago that it was time to renew my website domain name and stating that my site registration would expire 3/16/17. I was informed by my website manager that domain registration costs only $10 per year. So they have stolen $180 from me.

This company will send you a letter as soon as they find a newly registered website, claiming your domain name is expiring and asking you to renew your domain for an atrocious $45 / year fee. They are obviously preying on people who don't know better, using red font and bold letters to make it look like a warning, but also saying this payment is not mandatory (because it isn't).

I received what appears to be an invoice but is in fact a solicitation disguised as an invoice. The top says Domain Name Expiration Notice, and in the body of the letter the language implies that renewal through via the "invoice" is required to keep your domain name. This company has nothing to do with my current domain.

I got the infamous "Domain Name Expiration Notice" asking for 45 vs. 80 vs. 180 $. No need to state another time what kind of scam it is. Of course, I haven't sent money.

iDNS says your domain name is about to expire and looks like a payment is due. Claims to be an easier way to transfer and pay for your domain name renewal for $45.00 per year. My domain costs less than $14.00 per year. These people are unethical and trying to fool business owners that are not tech-savvy. This letter fooled my dad who was worried my domain is expiring. All the information iDNS uses is part of my public whois record associated with my domain. I checked the address, too -- it is a UPS Store!!! FRAUDS.

Company sent "Domain Name Expiration Notice", which looks very much like an invoice for renewal, advising of a domain name expiry and offing to 'renew it'. Problem is that this company is not the existing domain registrar for the domain in question. Accepting the "offer" provided on the notice would effectively transfer the domain to iDNS. Registrar rates are roughly 4X that of the market price. Beware.

Letter sent by post. Says that you must renew your domain name. Prices are twice the average rate. It looks like this is a scam preying on people that don't know much about the internet.

They will say your Domain name with them will expire and will result in a loss of your online business name.

I didn't even have an account with this person/company.

This is a scam and has been posted as one online by blogs.
