Today I have received a letter from a company called DENIC, according to the letter they are the "German Network Information Center, is the center registry for all domains with the ending .de." In the letter they talk about that "your provider ( for the .de domain) has stopped administering these domains." They are administering it through the so- called TRANSIT procedure. It is according to the letter "standardized process meant to protect your domains and ensure that they they cannot simply be deleted and and consequently become available for registration by others" Now they are giving 2 choices "without being charged any fees by DENIC: 1. Delete the domain via a deletion request 2. Select a new provider who shall administer the domains in the future by carrying out a provider transfer. And the "free-of- charge TRANSIT period will end on 9 October2020" if I did not managed to delete the domains on the specific date the domain will administered by DENIC and I have to pay 58 euros euros per a year. I check the domains in epik and they are expired so I thought that I don't have to worry about anything. I send Epik an email and I have yet to receive their response. Here is the reason why I think this a scam they send the letter on 10 September 2020, in the middle of the pandemic were many countries were lockdown and I'm not from Germany. The free-of-charge TRANSIT due on on 9 October 2020. If these is a legitimate company they could just send me an email. But no they have to send a physical letter in the middle of the pandemic. I have a feeling that they just want me pay the fees. Can anyone give me an advice on how to deal with this. Also sorry if I posted this on the wrong section I'm just panicking right now.
