I usually register my important domains for several years in the future, and have the register lock on. Some registrars call it transfer lock.

I also Backorder my own domains on namejet, GoDaddy, etc just in case they ever do expire there’s still a chance to get them back.

If only there was a company that offered domain name insurance, to make sure you never lose your domain, it’s never stolen, dns isn’t hijacked, and the site never goes down (ddos attacks, etc.).

Ideally you would want your registrar to offer the insurance.

What would they do if it was?

How much money would make you forget about it?
