    Having had a domain stolen and having found the process of getting it back dicey and potentially ruinously expensive for anything other than very high value domains I'm looking for additional safeguards beyond passwords, 2 factor authentication and trusting registrars.

    Has anyone sought to trademark their domains specifically for legal protection? I think at least one registrar offers some sort of subscription legal plan service with fees for filing trademark claims on your domains. Does it work? Is it worth it? If so, what is the best way to go about registering a mark for a domain?

    In order to protect email delivery against disruption attacks, contact email addresses for a domain should be assigned to mail servers named outside that domain and registration account. For example, if the domain is managed through an account A at registrar X, use email addresses assigned from a different domain ( managed through an account B (and possibly at registrar Y). This measure prevents an attacker who succeeds in compromising a domain account from preventing delivery of notification emails by altering DNS configuration for a domain.

    For our clients, we track (robot ping every 90sec) changes to domain name settings and for many different changes. e.g. DNS records, Email accounts, Websites, Files, sFTP login, Remote login, Upload, Download, Traffic Alert, OnGuard, etc
