This isn't directly PHP related, but I feel it is appropriate. I just got a letter from VeriSign- a "Domain Name Expiration Notice". It was EXTREMELY misleading. I looked like an invoice demanding $29 by 5/15/02. Basically, they made it seem like I already had a service with them and this was a renewal of that service. I suppose this is remotely true since they run the A root server... Nah it's still way out of line.
My domain ( coeus-group.com ) expires 6/6/02 (according to the whois records). The 5/15 deadline makes it seem like they're trying to get in before the compitition, so their chicanery will work. As you can tell from the whois records, my domain is registered through bulkregister.com, via nomonthlyfees.com (well, you can't tell the second part, but you have my word on it ;)). Neither of these companies, to the best of my knowledge, are associate in any way with VeriSign. I called the billing department @ nomonthlyfees, and they said that this was happening to lots of people, and not to worry about it (DNS renewal is included in my hosting charges). I'm on my way to bbb.org after I finish this eMail. I just wanted to give you guys warning.
