The amount of spam – unsolicited email – that I receive daily, is horrendous.
Along with offers to buy worthless domains, lowball inquiries and emails from “buxom Ukrainian 24-year-olds”, some domain registrars started to send out a hefty amount of emails unrelated to domain registration services.
Registrars are there to perform the task of domain registrations – and that’s it, in my book. I don’t need add-on services, such as web hosting or SEO, web design, logo design etc. particularly when I am a competitor in the same fields.
For services that I don’t provide, I also want to be selective; pick my own web host, do my own social media promotions or press release services. It’s not a bundled service of local/long distance/Internet that I’m after. I just want to register and manage my domain names.
So, domain registrars – you know who you are – you need to stop sending these “opt out” emails and make the process “opt in” instead: if I want something, I will get in touch.
