Tiresome but mandatory domain: expiration monitoring
We are sure you are a hardworking person who never gets lazy when it comes to those important tasks. We bet you have a whiteboard hanging in your office and keep a good track of all the important expiration dates of your website. If that is the case, domain expiration date might have some red exclamation marks next to it as is so so important!
What if I forget my domain expiration date?
Forgetting your domain expiration date puts you at a great risk of losing control of your site name and this means you can potentially lose everything you might have been working on for a very long time. A site name with a great history and reputation is a valuable asset of any business, yet it can easily be bought out by competitors, and it is a disaster when it comes to your marketing opportunities. Also, your hostname can technically be bought out by some nasty cybercriminals who might be willing to destroy the credibility of your brand or business by framing it as a scam. What is more, after your domain is being snatched, the new owner gets access to the domain name and all the sensitive information that was used within that particular domain. So proper domain expiration monitoring could prevent you from having your personal information leaked.
Three ways to prevent the trouble
There are three ways you could avoid getting into such an unpleasant situation.
The wasteful but easy way: a domain can be registered for ten years or more, so try having a long registration for your domain. A very long one.
The cost effective but mentaly draining one: ask someone on your team to do constant domain expiration monitoring.
Easy AND cost-effective way: allow Linko to help you by regularly monitoring when the domain expires and letting you know the expiration date beforehand!
