Another domain name registration email scam
This is another domain name registration scam from the criminal domain name registration miners. It’s designed to appear as if it is legitimately from your domain name registrar and that if you do not respond bad things will happen to your domain. If you do not follow their ask and “activate” your domain name your domain will be “restricted.”
What a crock. Don’t fall for it. It’s a scam to just trick you into spending some money on a useless service or perhaps something worse.
