I keep receiving the email below. Is it genuine or spam. I bought my email a few weeks ago, and it has at least a year to expire. Here’s the email:

Probably spam/phishing. If you’re concerned, you should independently log into your registrar and double-check the expiration date.

I got the exact same message for my domain.

It was submitted by a spambot into an open web form on my site, and it looks like that’s the case for you too. I suppose the message could also be sent directly to the email address on record for your domain, as well.

But it is completely bogus. Absolutely false and a scam.

So just ignore it, and please do not respond or click on any of the links.

PS – No third party has the power to terminate your domain ownership/registry before its valid expiration date, which you can confirm via WHOIS: https://godaddy.com/whois
