What is the content of this letter?
First, IDNS Canada usually sends a domain name expiration notice by mail. At first sight, this letter seems to simply inform you that you must renew your domain name before the due date in order not to lose the rights.
On the other hand, when we analyze the letter in more detail, the company actually wants to get complete management of your domain name. Presented as an invoice , this letter invites you to provide them with your information in order to initiate the domain name transfer.The contents of this letter can be confusing for a large number of people because it seems to come from the authority in charge of your domain name registration. This is not the case. If you accept their offer, B2B2C cannot avoid or cancel the transfer to IDNS Canada.If you decide to renew your domain name registration with this company, we will no longer be able to assist you with the management of your domain name because IDNS Canada is not affiliated with B2B2C.
