Please note that easyDNS is in no way affiliated with The Domain Registry of Canada (DROC) nor any of the companies listed below, and this page is provided as a service to our customers who may be confused by these notices. These notices are not coming from easyDNS and are an attempt to have you transfer your domain names away from easyDNS.
The practice of "domain slamming" is becoming more pronounced recently. We attribute it largely to desperation. Some of the larger, more complacent registrars are facing customer defections of epidemic proportions, while other, smaller, unproven or un-reputable operations seem to want a short-cut to market share. In either case the result is a series of what we consider to be deceptive and (in some cases) borderline fraudulent practices.
Here are a few important points to remember regarding your domain names here:
• easyDNS never sends renewal notices (or any other kind of notice) via postal mail. We do everything digitally via email. If it came in your postal mail and pertains to your domain, it is likely from a solicitation from a competitor (even if it looks like an invoice).
The "invoices" may look "official", yet they are merely advertisements or solicitations, and rather misleading ones at that. Here are some examples of the the "invoice" type of solicitation making the rounds:
What You Can Do
If you have already remitted fees to one of these outfits, if you did so prior ro March 25, 2002, you must explicitly deny the ensuing transfer request or the transfer will go through.
One you have denied the transfer request, or the transfer request has failed because of the registrar lock demand your money back, feel free to file a complaint with your local Better Business Bureau. If they refuse your refund, contact your credit card company or even your local police.
