I just read an article on Net Locations Blog entitled: The Ten Commandments of Domain Name Ownership. The article serves as a good reminder to us about what to do and what not to do when it comes to ownership of domains. I've listed below each 'commandment' but you should refer to the article, which discusses the reasons behind each of these commandments: 1. Always (I said always) Register Your Domain Name Yourself 2. Corporate Domain Names Should Always be Registered in the name of the Company 3. Make sure your Registrar only makes changes upon your approval 4. Use a Hard to Guess Password and always Encrypt your Data (also see forum thread How strong are your passwords?) 5. Never Register a Domain using a Free Email Address 6. Place a Register Lock on your Domain 7. Never forget to Renew Your Domain (Example: Oops, Hamleys forgets to renew domain) 8. Never respond to Phishing Emails or Click on any Links within them (example: Beware if you get email) 9. Never accept Free Domain Name offers from Internet Service Providers 10. ....Not sure what happened to 10. If article is corrected, I will updated this thread accordingly. Can you think of any more 'commandments' that should be added to this list?
