The 'instructions' section in tiny grey text at the foot of the email gives away the true intention of this misleading email.  They (http://domaclub.win/ ) are trying to sell you SEO services.  They most probably acquired your email  and postal address via the WHOIS information for your domain.  This is not a notice for the expiration of your domain name (although the content and language looks extremely similar)

Action: Delete the Email - Do Not Reply - Do Not Click on any Links - Only renew your domain with the company that looks after your domain (e.g. Easykey)
