    This is a tactic Godaddy initiated and its something they started years ago. They start spamming you with early domain renewal notifications, sometimes months in advance of your domain expiring.

    Iv noticed lately that Namecheap has started doing this. I get emails daily from them telling me to renew NOW! WTF! While I appreciate notifications of upcoming domain expirations I am more than unhappy with the fact that they have started this aggressive behavior in the footsteps of Gocappy, I mean Godaddy.

    The worst spam...
    "Hello, your domain expires in 2016, would you like to lock in at a lower rate for a 20 year renewal?"
    God, godaddy is annoying. Doesnt make sense that their nascar driver crashes a lot, not exactly the best way to advertise their hosting. Well, in hindsight, seems pretty accurate!

    Namecheap seems to only send me 1 email when it's going to expire. I actually had 3 domains expire on me because I thought they'd mail me again closer to the date...
