    I just realised something.

    Let say I purchase all my domain name with one registrar company (ex: namecheap) . What if this company get out of the business sudently, will I lose all my domain names? I would be pretty much screw...

    Is there anything we could do to prevent such things for happening?
    All my business depend on websites, If I lose domain names all of sudden, I will lose everything...

    Maybe it's just me, but it freaks me out...

    small chances, even if that will happen i think you can transfer your domains safely to another registrar

    Now i want to know this to. Actually i never thought about this and would be nice to know what happens to domains. Maybe they are transfered to some other register company.

    What if the information you gave to your registrar are fake?

    If the registrar get out of the business, there is no way you can get your domain name back right?

    Well in that case you just have to believe that your registrar wont go out of business :)
