[Discuss] [ OT] Google- GoDaddy registre renovation nightmare loop

Hi Julian.  In your email you write that the email was from 
"". GoDaddy is the registrant of the domain 
"", not "". If you copied and pasted 
this domain name from the email you received into this email, then it 
seems that you were tricked into paying someone unaffiliated with 
GoDaddy.  If the domain's spelled correctly in the email you received, 
then that's not the problem.  So, the first question is who introduced 
the typo?
