Domain Registry of America Scam

I wanted to put a warning out to everyone that if you receive a notice or invoice via email or mail from the Domain Registry of Americam that you can safely ignore it.

The DROA is a scam which uses fear to make domain owners believe they must renew their domains immediately otherwise they will expire. What they don’t tell you is that for one thing, usually the owner didn’t register through DROA and secondly, you will be charged a ridiculous fee (like $50 or more) upon “renewing”. They will also send you this invoice/notice regardless if you have already renewed at your current registrar (like Go Daddy, Yahoo, Tucows etc.).

For more information please see:



So please, be aware and be safe.
