Domain Phishing Attacks

Many high-profile domain registrars are being targeted by a massive phishing attack against domain owners. The fraudulent emails claim that a particular domain name has been suspended and ask users to click a link.  

If you receive an email like this, there is no problem with your domain and there is nothing you need to do. 

Important:

  • Do not click any links
  • Do not reply to the email
  • Do not call any phone numbers listed within the email

When Silver Barrel Solutions registers a domain name on your behalf, we typically use one of the following registrars:  Godaddy.com or Rebel.ca (previously domainsatcost.ca).  If your domain has been registered by Silver Barrel Solutions, we manage the DNS configuration, renewals and all communications with the registrar so you don't have to worry about it.  Any notifications or renewal invoices regarding your domain will come directly from Silver Barrel Solutions.  Any other notifications should be treated as suspicious.

Please don't hesitate to contact us should you have any questions about your domain renewals.
