    ive registered so many domains i lose track of what ones are due to run out. And as i use so many emails, I sometimes miss when the renewal is due.

    Is there any tool or software that will remind me of all my domains and when they are due to be renewed?

    Just lost a few this week and I pissed about it

    The simplest solution is, of course, auto-renew. That's how I handle it. Anything I don't for-sure want to dump will be re-registered without me having to do anything. The downside is that you might find yourself continuing to be the owner of domains you'd rather have released. But I find that less of a risk than having one I want to keep being on manual renewal.

    If you don't want to have autorenew on for some reason, try a paper calendar/notebook that you use ONLY to record domain renewal dates in. Then make a point of looking in it as soon as you get on your computer every day. When you've actually renewed a domain, put a line through it. Make sure not to put any lines through ones you're "going to renew today." Wait until you actually DO renew them.

    Don't succumb to the urge to "just jot down" anything else in that calendar. That way, you won't have to wade through any other information, so you shouldn't miss any. At least, not once you actually get in the habit of looking at the domain calendar every day!

    (I say to use paper because then it'll stand out to you because it's different from the clutter all the zillion programs that pop at you--plus, it's easier to resist putting irrelevant stuff in a paper one.)
