Toni Mills Graphic Design. A design studio in Newport RI specializing in design unique to the individual client. Each project evolves from the personality of the client and/or product they are offering. We believe the path to a successful project is thru passion, commitment, communication and a clear focus on our client’s business goals.
Over the last few weeks I have received domain renewal solicitations by email and snail mail (USPS). Different sources, same offer. Renew now and take advantage of their best savings. Each offering one year, three year and longer year terms. The longer terms being a better value. Or so they say!
Their renewal rates are twice, three times or even more times the rate I would pay with my current provider. Plus, unless I look very closely, they do not make it immediately clear they are not my current provider.
If you receive a renewal notification by snail mail, you can pretty much guarantee it is NOT from your current provider so throw it in the recycle bin! That done, go online and login to your current provider account, check the price (I am sure it will be significantly less), make sure the domain is locked, auto renew is active and the credit card on file is up to date. If you receive an email solicitation, don’t click on any links in it, instead press delete, login to your current provider account and follow the steps above.
