Change of Registrar Email from Melbourne IT

WebHosting HUB uses Melbourne IT as our domain registrar partner. This means that WebHosting HUB is not the actual registrar, but a reseller for Melbourne IT regarding your domain names. Recently, Melbourne IT's reseller business was acquired by Tucows Inc. Melbourne IT has been sending out an email to all cutomers of resellers. This includes any WebHosting HUB customers that have their domain names registered through us.

The email is legitimate, so there is no need to worry about it being fake or a scam. The management and function of your domain name through WebHosting HUB will not change.

The email reads as follows:

Dear registrant
