How do I legitimately renew my domain name?

Asked by serenityNOW (3636points) February 4th, 2012

My domain registration is about to expire, and I need to renew it. I’ve been getting all this “spam” from sketchy companies. I just forget the legit way to do this.

Go back to the site where you purchased the domain. Also if you don’t do it right away, they can, “park” the name on their site and ask for a much higher price on the name. Good luck. God speed you.

@auhsojsa – Hmm… I’m not sure where I registered it. I think it was Verio. Thanks, I’ll look that up. I think I might also email my current web host, They’re the bees-knees.
And, I will not post a link, even though I do get a little bonus if I refer people. I’m just not that kinda guy.

Just a word for the future. I would really suggest separating DNS from your hosting if you care about the uptime of your site.

I have been trying to get www.verio.com for ten minutes and it keeps timing out.

@johnpowell – Not sure what that means?
