We are 10 days into the year 2017, how are you doing with your new year resolutions?
Many resolutions are hard to keep, which is why most of us end up abandoning them.
But here are 4 easy resolutions you could have made as a domain owner that would have given you a sense of accomplishment.
Make Sure Your Whois info is Up to Date
Keeping the Whois information current is as important as changing the battery for your smoke detectors.
The only difference is that the smoke detector will keep beeping until you replace the battery while you won't know your Whois information
is out of date until one day you decide to transfer the domain name.
An outdated email address is enough to create this trouble.
So take 10-15 minutes and verify the contact information for all your domain names.
Enable Whois privacy
Many new domain owners may not know this, but ICANN, the organization governs domain names and internet resources, requires that domain
registrants provide information such as name, address, email address and phone number when registering a domain name and make this information public
for queries. You will likely receive phone calls and emails from those who are trying to sell you a service or a product related to your domain name
even though it is completely useless to you. This can be easily avoided by enabling domain Whois privacy. It won't cost much but will protect your privacy and reduce spam.
Consolidate your Portfolio
It is not always easy to transfer a domain name, especially with some registrars making it hard on purpose.
That is why people end up having domain names across many registrars.
Different registrars work differently, making it hard for you to manage your domain name and keep them current.
It is always worthwhile to consolidate your portfolio by transferring your domain name to one single registrar that meets all your demands.
You can transfer your domain name to us in a few simple steps and make use of our free DNS management, dynamic DNS services as well as domain forwarding features.
Set Your Domains on Auto-Renew
