Ever had this scary thought your domain has been stolen? When you own a lot of domains it's hard to keep track. Lately I've been checking Whois. (It's easier) to check domains I swear I own. Only to find it's in someone else's account and usually it's at the same registrar I often use @namesilo @GoDaddy @namecheap @LCN @Dynadot It goes without saying the best way to steal a domain is for the thief to push the domain internally. So as to not raise flags. Domains can be stolen any number of ways. No need to discuss here. One way that applies to me is email account hacked. Recently there was a Yahoo database hacked and Yahoo users and emails were dumped. My email address for my domaining was Yahoo at one point. Did someone see my Yahoo in that database and stolen my domain via having access to my Yahoo? How would it work? They would simply request my password changed. Then quickly go I there and push domains they think are high value or just the ones they need or like to their accounts. Then delete all emails pertaining to that domain. What bothers me is when I contact the current registrar about the domain. And ask them if that domain was ever in my account they say no. Paranoid me never trusts just that. But don't give up there. The obvious way to check is contact icann and see who has owned the domain in the past . Hopefully they have a record. I'm doing this now. This would be the last and final resort. Anyone else have an ideas on how to figure out if your domain was stolen? And yes I should always on the regular download an Excel sheet of all my domains but some registrar's don't give it. And I forget to download sometimes. So only my fault if I lose a domain to thieves.
