    Can someone explain I'm a little confused I purchased loads of .co.uk domains and no issues, and then I purchased a .com and a .info and all of sudden I'm bombarded with all these serious sounding emails warning me how I need to register my domain names and pay an extra £50 each approx. Hell I wouldn't have bought those domains if I knew I'd have to fork out another £100 for domains I probably won't even be using for a while. So my question is do I have register them what happens if I don't? If I've purchased the domain isn't that enough? Sorry for the newb questions.

    thanks

    Adam

    I don't know what you are trying to say... Who is messaging you on how you should register domains?
    And there is no way you have to pay £50 or so extra for domains......

    Is it the "time to send in your registration" one? I get that one forwarded through the domain privacy provider - If so it's a total scam.

    It's a scam, just ignore it. And get WHOIS on your domains so they don't send you spam

    Yeah it's a scam - I have had the same email as well after recently registering a .com via a well known UK registrar
