With the recent increase in domain name theft and other internet domain fraud, selecting the cheapest domain registration and website hosting may not be the best decision for your business. A new wave of internet domain name theft has been sweeping the world wide web. Recently, prominent internet service provider panix.com had their domain stolen, and the high value domain name sex.com was stolen and held for over three years costing the rightful domain name owner millions of dollars.
“Choosing the cheapest domain registration and website hosting may not be the smartest or safest decision” said Monte Cahn, CEO of ICANN (news – web sites) accredited internet domain name registrar www.Moniker.com. “It is important to select a registrar with the highest level of security and great customer service, not just a cheap domain name price.”
Mr. Cahn has been in the domain business since 1996, he advises someone about to purchase domain names to: “Make sure the registrar undergoes rigorous security procedures. At Moniker.com we take several steps to ensure no one can steal a domain name. We lock all domains at the registrar and at the Registry and set all accounts to “High Security”, we offer private “who is” to protect registrants identities from SPAM and other unwanted activities. In addition, we are the only registrar that has executive review of every transfer out request by at least 3 employees including an officer of the company.”
In additional to securing your domain with a reputable registrar, service features are important when selecting a registrar as well.
“Domain name value is not just about a cheap domain name price.” Said Moniker.com President Eric Harrington, “It is important to ensure the registrar you select has personal customer service – a real person you can contact, not just emails that go unanswered. We offer inexpensive domain registration and website hosting, including domain name registration starting at $3.99 for the .info extension, and we provide a very high level of customer service and the industry”s best domain name security.”
