Tech auto billing!

Hi all

The registrar have just billed me for 2 domain renewals which I didn’t request, and the price is a lot higher than when I ordered them.

I bought these in a sale and thought they just ran for 2 years then I had to renew.

I know its not a forum issue and I have already contacted 123.

What is the score with these domains and how do other companies deal with renewals? I have used GoDaddy before but switched when I realised they weren’t even a UK based company and I was worried about my data being owned by someone outside the UK.
