Don't think it can happen to you? It has already happened to many small and large businesses. They waited until last minute, business got so busy that they forgot altogether, or an error occurred with registrar company and before these businesses knew it, someone had come along and snatched up their domain name, right out from under them.
One business man had close to two weeks to re-register his domain name, so he went online to make a payment and renew domain for a few more years. However, something happened with his domain host that prevented him from making a payment online, so he called company and asked them to take care of it. He gave them all necessary information and paid with his credit card, by phone. Thinking problem was solved, he went about his daily business. A week later, his domain name "officially" expired and someone purchased it right out from under him! All that work, gone!
