Should This Service Be Allowed?

That is a very interesting question. Some would say yes simply because there are literraly 1000's of websites that aren't going to be renewed next month. Onrepparttar flip side, some of those websites are simply a mistake. I thinkrepparttar 147199 point here is; avoid making that mistake and renew your domain name for atleast 5 years.

Google is apparently looking throughrepparttar 147200 "WHOIS Data Base" to see which websites haverepparttar 147201 staying power online and are serious by registering their domain name for more than 1 year at a time.

Again, should domain backordering be allowed?

I say no! Just like a patent for an invention, you should have up to 1 year to claim that domain unless you transferrepparttar 147202 domain name to another company or individual. This way we would have less domain name theft and less "hick-ups" from companies who simply forget their important responsibility.

Protect Your Net-Real-Estate!

Your website address isrepparttar 147203 most important commodity you have online. It is as important as your business name itself. It is what ties your company offline to online. People know you through your domain name. Potential clients may end up visiting your website later on, you woudln't want some other company in your place?

Please be careful when give outrepparttar 147204 access information for your domain name to anyone that isn't within your trusted circle.

I hope this article has helped you out!
