Google Domaine Name Help, Please!

 I have received the following email from Google.  I've tried to find out if / why I have domaine name that I don't recall having set up.  I'm afraid that if I don't get it straightened out I may lose my bloodspot.  My blog address is:  I tried the domaine Google mentioned in the email: and it brings up my latest blog post.

I've tried to get through to Google by clicking on the "turning auto renewal ON," but it doesn't take me anywhere where I can renew, or find out anything about this renewal.

Can anybody help me out with this?  I don't want to have them turn something OFF that prevents me from future posting.

  1. Hi Mary-Pat,
    try this link:

    May be it helps.

    1. Hi Renate:
      Thanks for the website. I've filled out their form and hope to hear back from them.

    2. Google got back to me . . . Vladimir (in Bulgaria) called and I renewed my domaine name. But, I actually think it's not mandatory. oh well, for now all is okay! Hope all is well with you, too.

  2. Interesting that it won't let you click on auto renewal... I use Google but don't recall ever seeing this. I know this isn't any help but I... ask Rick at ... he's an expert on this stuff. I think he has an email address on his blog. He's very helpful.

    Hopefully the link Renate Hoven supplied might help .. maddening isn't it...

    1. Hi Carolyn:
      Okay, I think all's well now. And, yes, I did go back and read your replies to my comments and I'm so glad you were just being facetious!

  3. I'm with Caroline. Rick Doyle is your answer man!

    1. I've been in touch with Rick - and just found out this evening that we're currently almost next-door neighbors in the Palm Springs area. Small world!

  4. Mary-Pat... you obviously don't read my responses to your comments so I'll post it here... please go back and read them as well as my post ...

    Thank you for your concern ... but well, just please read my responses... and... yep go see Rick ;)

    It's a gorgeous day here today!

  5. Try going to: and do a search on

    This will show you that "eNom" ( registered the name. You may have got that name "purchased" for you when you entered into some agreement with a software company, with google, or something like that. You are not and have not been using it...since it is not setup for "auto pay" you can just forget it and it will eventually go away.

    Nice seeing you back to your blogging ways. :) --Dave

    1. Well, after about an hour on the phone with Vladimir in Bulgaria, representing Google, I paid the $10 for a year's subscription for the domaine name. Now I need to sort out how to get out of it. Vladimir, who's not familiar with blogger, is positive that I have to pay it each year. Since I'm the only blogger who has to pay I know it's in error. But, he said my blog would go away if I didn't renew so I did - for now! I'm going to contact when I have a minute - right now friends are coming to pick me up for dinner. Más trade, amigo.

    2. Free "Blogger" is with the blogger name in the url, such as: "" like ours is. We ALSO purchased the name "" (and too by the way) which transfer the person to the blogger address of I did this to give me more flexibility in the future, if needed, AND because it is easier to remember and advertise than the blogger blogspot address. I got our service for 3 years through only because they seemed to be offering the best price and their service includes email too (dave "at" will forward to my yahoo email). I cannot say that because you don't have a blogger address now that you can't go back to a blogger address in the future. But $10 is not that bad of a deal, and you "can" download all of your blog and move it over to a different blogger address OR to wordpress fairly easy.

  6. I just sent you an email explaining what I think is going on and with a number to contact eNom who are the company that registered the domain name allegedly on your behalf. In the meantime, I would definitely make a complete backup of both your template and your blog just in case.

    If you're not sure how to do this, let me know and I'll send you the instructions.

    1. Hi Rick:
      Just had dinner with Joe and Betty G. What a coincidence after just contacting you this am. We're just about neighbors while I'm here in this area! I'm going to check with and I may contact you if I can't fire out how to make a backup of my template and blog. I think I can do it on my external drive.

  7. I wonder if you should purchase a domain name. This way, no matter which blog site you use, your readers will be able to find you. Just a thought. Blessings, from your fellow blogger... Lynn

    1. Hi Lynnie:
      Well, as of now my domaine name subscription has been renewed; even though I didn't know I had one!
