I'm sure this has happened before to some on here and I am no stranger to this either. IT IS A TOTAL NIGHTMARE! Nothing sucks more than losing a domain you did not want to lose and because of stupid things like the wrong auth codes from your registrar. They give you a download of all your domains including matching auth codes. most work. but every now and then auth codes are not correct. it always happens when the situation is time sensitive and you need to get things done quick. For whatever reason, a domain you did not plan to let go gets lost and now it's with some other domainer. You lose the domain because. 1. you did not set auto renew. 2. you left auto-renew off because you always plan to transfer. 3. you tried to transfer but for some reason wrong auth codes. you did not follow up with transfer because you assumed auth codes were good. domain goes into redemption. You can't afford to pay redemption fee. You take the risk and let it delete. or you think you are slick and pay for cheap dropcatch service but the service fails and gets beat by a faster dropcatch service. 4. registrar you order a domain transfer took to long to transfer and domain goes into redemption or simply did not submit the proper whatever to start the process. 5. Domain went to auction and you "planned" on bidding but forgot. You waited because you did want to run up the bid but then you weren't paying attention and missed it. I'd like to hear your experiences bad or good. You can even mention when you "almost" lost a domain because of any of the above but luckily got your domain in your account "safely". Please excluded anything that has to do with paying a redemption fee. CoinSwitzerland.com 5GMobile.de BestInjury.com These are just a few I remember. I'll add more later. So what domains have you lost in the past that really pissed you off? Please note.
