Domain Scams and Scam Emails

The below article will discuss some of the dangers of scam emails, and how you can protect yourself from them.

If your domain name is registered with us, we recommend that you ignore any messages regarding your domain unless they are from:

  • 123 Reg
  • Nominet (the Internet Registry for .uk domain names)
  • Domainbox

Any notifications from other organisations should be disregarded. Please be aware that 123 Reg ONLY sends renewal reminders by email, which will always be from the domain. Furthermore, you can only renew domain names via our website.

If you feel you have been misled by a third-party organisation, then please contact Trading Standards as they can, in some instances, force the company to issue a refund and transfer your domain name back to 123 Reg. If you are ever unsure about a renewal reminder, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
