    I have domains names from at least 5 different registrars, I am using a word file to keep track of them.

    Is there a better way?

    I use notepad so I have organized all my registrars along with the domains I registered under a single text file, basically like what you did. But if there's a more efficient way to do it I'll definitely use it!

    I have used Excel in the past. But I hate spreadsheets. So, if someone has something better, I would love to hear it as well.

    If by keep track of them you mean expiry dates then you should focus on the registrars rather than the individual names. The registrars usually have a soon to expire function.
    I use 'master of my domain' but it's for the mac I haven't seen a windows version though.

    I keep everything in text files and I also log into each of my accounts once per week (as part of my weekly maintenance / full backup routine), sort domains by expiry and see if anything needs to be dealt to over the coming week. It's also a good way to keep up to date and also to stay abreast of news at the registrar, changes to the interface etc.

    DUH, regular maintenance, THIS is the answer folks.

    Like make a "to do" list for once-a-day, once-a-week, once-a-month and add each registrar to the list...BRILLIANT and simple.

    It's funny how sometimes you are blind to REALLY obvious things you are smart enough to know already. I have become lazy with my thinking.

    Your brain needs regular exercise, just like your body does.

    Thanks Autumn!

    I think OPs problem could be a kick ass SaaS model for the right coder.....

    I bet people would be willing to pay for a very simple, clean, user-friendly desktop/mobile software/app that could help you keep track of all your domains under 1 interface.

    You'd be able to:

    See which domains are about to expire

    Which domains have privacy setting

    SSL certificate

    Change DNS

    See which domains are live or down

    Who they are registered with

    Upto date discount coupons to register new coupons


    etc.

    Am I wrong?

    We offer a service called Domain Link for just this purpose. Totally free of charge. This site will not allow me to post a link, but you can see more via the Support tab on our site and then click "Domain Link" for more info. Hope this is not violating any forum rules for self-promotion, but it is completely free to use and hopefully a helpful tool for people regardless of which registrar(s) they use.
