Domain registration companies are, like economy airlines, renowned for adding things to your “basket” as you go through the checkout process.
Buying a flight? We’ll assume you’d like travel insurance, unless you can find the “No insurance” option between Latvia and Lithuania in the dropdown. Renewing a domain? Click here to buy, or scroll to the bottom for the option without our email domain expiration protection renewal certification service.
You come to expect these things, but this one from register.com takes the biscuit. Subtotal != total => total fail.
