I received another "Is this legit?" questions from a client today, and wanted to share so that others can also avoid this.
These people are combining “SEO” with “Registration” in their tactics, which is total shenanigans… it’s like a mechanic telling you that your car needs a new muffler bearing. There is no such thing.
I recently received an email that is referenced in this forum thread. I was going to post my response on this other site but it tried to get me to sign up for a premium plan in order to post a response. Instead, I am posting it here:
We've heard from multiple clients who have received letters in the mail from Domain Registry of America (DROA). Read carefully - this is a solicitation. They are trying to trick domain owners into transferring their registrations to DROA. If you are happy with your current registrar (we suggest GoDaddy), you don't have to do anything!
