The old adage, "You learn something new every day" is certainly true, isn't it?
How many articles have I read on renewing your domain name?
*On being so careful to get it done?
*On watching out for unscrupulous people who wait to pounce on domain names that people forget to renew?
*On keeping your site up and running?
50? 100? I'm sure it's been at LEAST that many.
But what did I do? I let my domain name run out! Last week you may have noticed you didn't receive a newsletter. That's because I couldn't send you one!
My site was down for two days. How many visitors did I lose? How many sales didn't get made? I'll never know.
No one likes to make mistakes, least of all me! But if this article helps just one person, then hey - I don't mind sharing all my mistakes! It's the only way to learn. Just take my advice so you don't have to go through this, too.
If your web hosting service does not provide notification for you, and you don't remember when your registration expires, visit (http://www.betterwhois.com) and you'll be able to find out your expiration date.
To renew your domain name registration, just visit your current web hosting service and RENEW! It only takes a minute, and believe me - you'll be glad you did.
