I received a letter today 01/04/2005 allegedly from called Confirmation of Registration. The letter was dated 11th March 2005.

Some of the contents.

Is this "pukka" as Jamie would say or is it another scam?

Yes, my web site is registered through When you go through and register you can download your certificate.

If you've got any doubt, their telephone numbers are listed on the letter, give them a call.

octal, Thanks but I have 4 other websites registered with nominet but I have never received a letter like this before. As it said it is registered for 2 years from 18 December 2004, which means 17 December 2006 before it needs to be renewed. Why do I need to confirm it??? I already have a certificate issued when it was first registered.
