Ok so you have multiple domains all pointing to your main domain where your site lives.
But now you want to change the main domain, so you need to redirect all requests, for all the alias domains, to the new main domain and generate a 301 response so search engines and browsers know that the pages have all been moved permanently.
I received and email purporting to be from NZ Post this morning telling me that they could not deliver a package.
It all looks very genuine but didn’t feel quite right.
Very realistic email from NZ Post
However when you dig a bit deeper it all starts looking nasty:
The from address is *****.email@example.com
The link of the “Save Label” button is http://zafrongrill.com
The last sentence looks a bit menacing “If the parcel isn’t accepted within 30 serving days New Zealand Post will have the reason to claim compensation from you for it’s storing in the sum of 2.32 NZ$ for every hour of keeping.”
We recently received an unsolicited letter from IDRTM (International Database of Registered Trademarks) asking for the princely sum of $1,638 to include one of our Trade Marks in their online database.
They do indeed have a website on which you can search for trade marks etc but you have to ask yourself why would you want to be in such a database when it is already easy to search trade marks via the Governments own site www.iponz.govt.nz.
The letter they send you looks like a request for payment but doesn’t say anywhere obvious that you are under no obligation to pay them anything so my concern is that some folk will pay for this service, thus wasting $1638 of their hard earned cash.
If you get such a letter, consider it carefully before sending them any money.
The small print includes the following;
“This publication is an elective service and does not substitute for registration nor does it prolong the validity of your trade mark with IPONZ”
“You may terminate this agreement….. (but)…. you will not be entitled to a refund”
In my view it is letter is deceptive and misleading so should be consigned to bedding for the hens.
