...And how do I know this? Simple, because the wonderful people at the Domain Renewal Group send me a reminder that I should. As they do every year. All I have to do is fill out the form they send through the post and hey presto they've taken our domain for 5 times the price of our current tag holder. the Domain Renewal Group are (almost) a scam. They send out an official looking invoice inviting you to renew your tag and make it look like they are the official holder of it hoping people will be too busy to read it correctly. It is expensive and if you read the small print on the back of the invoice (which is only binding in the US) it basically reads 'Hand over your domain to us and we can do what we want with it. Oh and you can't sue us because by filling out the form you have agreed not to' in very, very small print. Which is also printed in a light font to make it just that bit harder to read. The address it gives for the return post is 56 Gloucester Road in Kensington, which is actually an branch of Mail Boxes Etc. Classy. Avoid these guys like the plague, but wait, what's this? A pre-paid return envelope
Now what can I put in there I wonder?
