Author : smit mathur

The domain names are extremely important for a business credibility and profitability. Therefore, you always pay special attention in selecting a suitable and a profitable name at the time of domain name registration. After you get a very good domain name, it is important to manage the information suitably. But more often than not the vital information is not managed or safeguarded properly and this gives rise to phishing scams. These days a new kind of scam is in vogue, where the domain names are being hacked from domain registration systems. In order to safeguard your interests and secure your domain names you need to follow these simple tips.

1.Password protection
Make sure you protect your information with the help of a password which is difficult to guess. When you have a complicated password, your data will be secured and no one will be able to hack the information.

2.Update the information
You need to regularly update the information in the domain registration system or WHOIS records in order to remain up to date. Always keep changing the password.

This way you will be in a better position to control your domain because you will be regularly updated on any of the changes being made in the system.
