It happens hundreds of times every day - and it could happen to you!
Your credit card expires. You change your email address and don't update your domain contact information. Someone close to you, or a social engineer, transfers your domain name away without your permission.
When the domain name goes, everything else goes, too!
One oversight and you could lose the domain name you worked so hard to get. That means any Web site or email services associated with it will stop working.*
Protected Registration is packed with the safeguards and security you need:
Exclusive! Domain Ownership Protection:
Expiration Protection protects you from credit card expiration, failed billing, or outdated contact information.

How it works
Simply apply Domain Ownership Protection to your domain name.
Once applied, if your name expires without your renewal, the domain will be placed on inactive protected status for up to 12 months.
You can rescue the domain while on inactive, protected status for the cost of the renewal.
Domain Ownership Protection is not available for some domain names.
* Protected Registration will keep your domain name in your name. It will NOT keep your related services up and running should your domain name renewal lapse.
