When dealing with domain providers, there is a lot of information exchanged back and forth between the customer and domain provider. Much of this information is very important and should be handled accordingly, even if it looks “Spammy”…
A major issue that is common in the world of domains is ownership and the right to a domain name, which in turn tends to cause many many problems with regaining access to the domain and the ownership status.
These problems usually include unnecessarily spent time and money, something most of us don’t have a lot to spare these days.
This is why it is SOOOOO important to keep all emails you receive from your domain provider and more importantly, READ THEM!!!!!
Sometimes… A lot of the time actually, your provider will send out emails that can be easily confused as Spam or Junk Mail. They may even send you Junk Mail. But to assume that’s all it is a mistake that will cost you.
Domain providers often send emails letting you know that your domain is about to expire. It’s not uncommon for people to ignore those emails for the exact reason above… People assume it’s Spam.
Guess what happens when you ignore those emails about renewing your domain name??? It goes into what’s called a Redemption Period.
That’s the registry period of up to 30-45 days that occurs when a domain name is deleted after having expired unrenewed, during which time the registry holds on to the domain and only the registrar can contact the registry to try and renew it…
That’s when costs start to take place… It can cost anywhere from $75 to $200 to retrieve or renew a domain name.
That’s the first issue…. Now you also have to deal with your site and all email connected to it going down and becoming unusable. This means possibly losing business, missing important emails, etc.
So before you decide to delete emails from domain providers because you think it’s Spam or Junk Mail, spend the 30 seconds it will take to look at it and review it. It may save you hundreds of dollars in renewal fees, lost profit and vital emails.
