    DOMAINS

    This notification is being sent to you as a contractual requirement of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Number (ICANN) WOHIS policy. When you registered your domain with us, you agreed to keep your contact information in ACCOUNT MANAGER current, and WHOIS policy mandates that we ask you to verify and/or update this information periodically.

    Your domain(s) are scheduled to renew today to keep your domain active and prevent service interruption, Check that auto-renew is enabled in the Billing panel.
    Check that your billing credit card is up to date."
