DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION SCAM


Most of our Canadian customers have been contacting us regarding a letter that came in their mail. This letter usually arrives a few months before the renewal of their domain name (about 6 months in advance). The lettre is enclosed in a light brown craft envelope with a red maple leaf in the top left corner, similar to letters from the Federal government.

This one is a scam, though. It is mailed by a company that requests you to transfer and renew your domain name through them. Their annual charge is unbelievably high compared to the major registrars, and most of their domain name management tools are either optional or not available.

So why do people renew their domain names through them? Their company name (Domain Registry of Canada), as well as the content of the letter are made to look similar to Federal government correspondance, and the letter makes it appear that the company is the authority that manages all dot CA domain names registered in Canada. Furthermore, they will not hesitate to mail correspondance regarding a dot COM domain.

Please note that the authority in Canada for dot CA domains is called CIRA, and the authority for dot COM domains is UCAN. These authorities will not mail you for domain name renewal purposes. They actually do not directly sale domain names.

Should you receive one of these letters in a craft envelope, please throw it away. You will normally receive a notice by e-mail from your current registrar about three months before your domain name registration expires, and you will get a few more notices the closer you get to the renewal date.

NEW PRODUCT: BLOOMING PAPER


BF Technic Arts is launching a new 100% recycled paper stock, but it's not only just another environmentally friendly or "green" paper. This paper can grow and sometime blooms!

How is this possible?
Seeds have been embedded into the paper during the production process. When planted and watered, the paper biodegrades and the seeds are left to germinate into a garden of growth. Independent seed testing labs confirm that "these things really grow!" Your cards will be printed in full colour on our white seeded paper.

This is a great paper for invitations, weddings, baby announcements, "green" business events, etc.
