When one purchases a domain name (wheteher in WA or elsewhere) - would the owner of the domain name have right over it for life/

can it be lost and what circumstances?

As all these wise WA members have mentioned, it's simply a pay-as-you-go program, however, you took it one year or two-year subscription. They will come back to you next year at this time about a month before and joyfully remind you that you have to pay your dues to play the game. As long as you pay, you keep it, you can even sell it for profit, write posts to it twice a week for a year and check it out can be worth some money.

I also purchased a domain weeks ago, as far as I know, we'll have to pay a yearly fee in order to keep it. If ever you wish to abandon it or discontinue using, you could simply stop paying. Once it's expired and remains unpaid, the domain will not belong to us anymore. This is my understanding, I hope this info. helps.

hi, Bosco, domain names have to be registered by paying a fee on a year to year basis. This can be yearly up to ten years at a time. Failure to pay the renewal fees would result in the domain name expiring and then going back on the open market. In reality we purchase the domain name and then we need to rent server space to hold that domain name; DNS, ( domain name server). From this server we can manage our domain names. this is standard across the industry. Obviosuly registras make money by providing that service.

It always pays to be aware of when the domain name is due for renewal. Most registrars send renewal notices. Some give a grace period some do not Godaddy are particularly staunch on thus aspect and require a payment in order to reactivate an expired domain over and above the renewal fee. With some domains, it can be a prohibitive cost.

Another thing to take into consideration is that your domain name needs to be renewed 1 month prior to the expiry date.

The most common way to lose a domain name is not to renew it.

In some instances, domains can be hijacked or your registration account can be hacked. Hackers steal domain names by obtaining access to your account dashboard or access the e-mail address that you use for that account and then reset the password for the account.

Privacy can be a big thing and here in WA it is included with purchase, many registrars still charge for it. It can be worth its weight in gold. The first things that hackers and scammers do are track down who owns the domain name, and then it is all on.

You will see in the community people rasing scam alerts whereby they have been sent an illegitimate domain name renewal notice. if folks follow that line it can lead to problems.

If you have domain names make sure you manage them, they are a valuable commodity.

Thank you for the enlightment. Appreciate it.

*** Excellent points, Alex! .... :) ***

hey hi Bosco ... important question and all questions are good ones here....

regarding a TLD or top level domain -- there's normally a fee to own it for a year or two or other time frame depending upon the provider .... once the expiry date comes and goes, then the domain also goes ... so it's best to renew before the expiry date if it is one you wish to keep .....

if you purchase one here at WA, you can toggle on the 'Renew' and you will receive renewal reminders via email notification about a month in advance of the expiry date ....

Abie (AbieAJ) also has a helpful reply for you ....

And of course, it is best to ensure you have the exact spelling ot the domain as there are no refunds or exchanges once you've completed the payment transaction -- this is the policy of domain providers.

well, hope this covers it for you ... we're happy to be of help...

all the best to you for every Success, cheerio .... :)

thanks..appreciate your comments

.... you're most welcome ... enjoy the journey! .... :)

Hey Bosco,

You could think of your domain registration like your vehicle's license plates... you know, as long as you continue to pay for the renewals then those vehicle license plates belong to you.

The same is true for domain registrations.

Hope this helps you.

thanks for the input

What can I do if someone used my website title to create a facebook page?

It's also possible they just thought of the same name as you. This happens more often than you think! If they aren't using your logo or content, there isn't much you can do. I would just make sure to claim a Facebook page for your business that is similar or the same, and make sure to use your correct logo so people know which Facebook page is "official".

If they've copied everything verbatim of your business you need to report it to FB. If they've happened to be using the same name but different logos and stuff like that you can't do anything.

Make sure they're not linking to ur site or anything that is ur's. If they are, report it to FB.

If you are trying to get your slug for the page try adding dashes or something to make it different.

Hope this helps :)

thanks Marlinda for the reply. They have only used my website name and is promoting other online stuff like bitcoin etc.

I guess they are looking to ride on my promoting the site and use it for their purposes.
