I received a domain renewal expiration notice through postal mail. Should I complete this form to renew my domain?
If you registered a new domain name through Oochie.com:

DO NOT respond to any domain renewal notices, invoices, or correspondence sent to you via postal mail.

Unfortunately, there are Domain Registrars out there that prey on innocent domain name owners and send official-looking domain renewal notices and/or invoices. If you fill out these forms you are agreeing to pay them for domain fees and you are also agreeing to transfer your domain to their domain registry. Typically these companies charge high fees for domain registration.

Please disregard any junk mail received through postal mail regarding domain renewals, as our Domain Registrar partner, OpenSRS/Tucows, does not send any postal mail for domain renewal.

If you did not register your domain name through Oochie.com:

In general, renewal notices sent through postal mail are junk mail. Most Domain Registrars will handle domain name renewals via email. Therefore, make sure to maintain up-to-date contact information with them. If in doubt, contact your domain registrar for clarification on how their domain renewal process works.

If you are unsure of who your Domain Registrar is, you can conduct a whois lookup. See link below for more information.
