Hey Brad ~ Smile

I received a subscription renewal invoice via snail-mail from a company by the name of LibertyNames. They quote prices of $29/year, $49/2 years, and $94/5 years to renew and maintain our domain name and access to our Class Creator site....

Are these guys legit? I don't know if anyone else has received invoices from this company; but, I just want to know from you, Brad, if they are who we're to be paying to renew and maintain our subscription with Class Creator. The prices appear higher than what I recall when joining and my subscription doesn't expire until March... so, this invoice seemed a bit premature and sent up some red flags.

Your thoughts, please? Thank you ~

Throw it out.

Liberty Names is a scam company, they try to get people to switch their domain names by sending out what looks like a bill.

That's one thing I don't like about setting up the domain name. I was forced to give my home address and was astounded to see it all listed on ARIN whois. Then, there's a service on teh domain site that offers to get us removed, for a price. Instead, I adjusted my address and phone number a bit myself.

Can I ask how you "adjusted" your personal information? I am not too thrilled with having my phone number and address out there either.

Unfortunately several unscrupulous registrars send something that appears to be a bill, but all you're doing is transferring your domain name away at a much higher cost. THROW INTO YOUR CIRCULAR FILE.

For an additional fee you can block your whois information, yes. That's pretty common with registrars. Frankly we have no control over it anyway. We built Class Creator, but is just a co-branded registrar powered by In other words, everything you see in there was created by somebody other than us. We just use it as a revenue generator and it also gives us the ability to allow people to get their own domain names set up and pointing to their sites without having to contact our Support Staff.

For my future information when it comes time to renew can you explain what we will be receiving from you guys on how to renew. Will it only be an email? Will it be through snail mail? What should I be looking for?
Thank you
