I have bought several domains From GoDaddy. Most of them were bought during the promotion of $1 domain. Every time I go through GoDaddy’s domain registration, I have to be very careful to uncheck any useless bundles. However, I think I fell into the trap last time I registered a domain from them.
Today I got an email said
We just want to let you know we’ve automatically renewed the following items according to our agreement:
Product Name Unit Price Qty Total Price WebSite Tonight Economy – 5 Page Web Site – Renew… $4.99 1 $4.99 Billing for 11/09/2010. New Account Bandwidth Renewal (recurring) $0.00 1 $0.00 Bandwidth/DiskSpace for 11/09/2010. New Account Subtotal: $4.99 Tax: $0.00 TOTAL: $4.99
WebSite Tonight, what the hack! I am going to turn off any auto renew and delete any credit card info left in their system. Folk, if you are buying from GoDaddy, caution! Be careful to uncheck anything you don’t want.
Updated: Just called them and got these services cancelled and they said I will receive the refund.
