Safe IT Tips:


Domain Registrations- there are companies that inform you of a pending domain expiration to steal the account. Know your Registrar. Legitimate registrars like GoDaddy, Host Gator, and Network Solutions will not try to con you into renewing your domain with them. When you get a domain name renewal make sure it is with the company that currently handles your domain. You may get a "Domain Name Expiration Notice" from Domain Registry of America, if they are not your registrar they are attempting to get you to register your domain with them. Sending them money and giving them your email address will authorize them to move your domain name.


Be ware of emails with no subject & only a link in the message. Yahoo and Hotmail are subject to hacks, don't click the link. I have also seen this same behavior on AOL and AIM emails lately.
