recently took over our website maintenance and am prompted to pay for several items which I believe are not necessary. (We are working on a bare bones budget.) To pay for our domain name "allfaithscem.org" is obviously necessary,but there are three other domain names listed (and billable) and which we have no obvious use for. These are allfaithscem.info, allfaithscem.com and allfaithscem.net! Each of these have two related items (also billable): Private Registration and Web Forwarding.So there are a total of 9 items which I don't believe we need!
I think these items allow for forwarding to our website if someone types in the wrong suffix, .com, .net,or .info is that correct? Please comment on whether these items *must* be renewed, whether they are important options, or totally not needed. Thanks. Frank

Hello Frank,

      You are suggested to remove the redirection of your main domain (allfaithscem.org) to these domains (allfaithscem.info, allfaithscem.com & allfaithscem.net).

Sorry don't understand. If someone types allfaithscem.com (incorrrctly) it will redirect to allfaithscem.org. I get that. I just need to check the charges for the redirection;if significant I wouldn't bother.

Now I get it. Thank you. You are saying that I should get rid of these redirections, correct?

Yes, you have to remove the redirections.
