What if AWS Route 53 charges you twice

I little while back I was transferring a domain from GoDaddy to Route 53. I didn’t turn off the private registration, nor did GoDaddy flag this or prevent me from going through the transfer process.

So about a day later the transfer process failed. I figured out what the issue was and initiated the process again in AWS.

When I checked my billing, I found out that I had been charged the price of a domain both times.

I looked onto, but couldn’t find anything about this, so I contacted customer support.

AWS customer support resolved the issue for me.

I thought I would give a heads up in case anyone else encountered this issue.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks really nice!
    I’m also interested in this topic + have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: https://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about Rockwall Investments and the way how normal people can make money with this company.)

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac
