If you’ve ever had the misfortune of buying a domain from the professional domain squatters at BuyDomains.com, you’ll notice that they send you login details to access your new domain at a shady, unknown registrar called “Annulet”. This is a registrar with no homepage, a clipart logo, and a layout that looks like it’s fresh from 1995. Sound suspicious yet?
Well, that’s because it is. Despite their attempts to make it seem that Annulet is its own distinct registrar, that just so happens to be the default registrar when you purchase a BuyDomains name, the truth is that it’s wholly owned by Namemedia Inc, the same company that controls BuyDomains.
Even better, compare their renewal prices to the going rate of $6.99/year for a .com!
Please send your payment via PayPal Merchant services to account – [email protected]
one-year renewal fee: $51.00
Up to 30 days past expiration, one-year renewal fee: $51.00
Please note, before sending funds please contact [email protected] to verify that your domain is in redemption and still retrievable.
If your domain has gone into redemption the following fee applies.
Redemption fee: $120.00 plus one-year renewal fee $51.00. Total: $171.00
Note: Annulet reserves the right to change or modify its fee at any time for services provided pursuant to this agreement.
So, in conclusion, BuyDomains isn’t satisfied with just taking thousands of dollars for that typo of your company name. They also hope you’re stupid enough to pay them six times the going rate for domain registrations in perpetuity.
