    I have 1 concern - I've always made multiple site at once. I have the fear that when i concentrate my efforts on 1 site, there is a possibility someone will block/steal my domain and I lose everything. How do I defend against something like that? I make backups obviously.(the files), but what if somehow i lose the domain?

    i use namecheap and wiredtree

    No need to pay 10 years upfront lol, your registrar will send you like 3 notices before it expires and a will keep the name for another month or so before it actually gets deleted.

    If you feel that you need proof of ownership, print out everything you can, such as whois, and details of your account at your registrar, and you should be good to go.

    I think there is no need to worry about these things, just register it with some company that has reputation and you are ok.

    Very little chance of this, but if the site is obviously making big money, some will try. Keep it at a known/reputable registrar, locked with current and accurate whois info and you should be fine.

    That said, IMO it is a very poor idea to pour all of your effort into one thing. Of all the hard lessons I've learned over the years, the most painful one is to DIVERSIFY. Do it. Never put all your eggs into one basket.

    I agree, but I will add that there is a difference between diversifying, and going scattergun crazy.

    I would never recommend 1 site.

    Starting with 1 site - now that's fine.
    But eventually - even if you specialize, I'd go for a minimum of 5 - probably 10.

    Then if you work a 5 day week, you can spend half a day a week adding content and promoting each site.

    Get tools as well :)
