Have you ever wonder what happens if you lose your VN domain? Let’s find the answer in this article.
In the last months of 2016, we heard that a student bought domain name google.com for only 12$. Although Google get it back after that, this news became one of the famous new about domain name security of all time.
While this is nothing in regards to some of the biggest domain name sales in history, it does reiterate the importance of keeping an eye on your domain name listings and their expiration dates – at the end of the day, it is the link that connects you and your clients and it is essential you do not lose your domain name. If you put yourself in the position of someone else being able to buy your brand itcould result in you effectively losing your footing online.
As frightening as this is, it only brushes the surface of potential issues if you lose your Vietnam domain. With a lost domain name comes the surrender of years of brand building and client relationships, loss in revenue and traffic to your web, and the potential for your search engine ranking to plummet.
If your domain name expires, it will be effectively ‘switched off’ so that anyone visiting your URL will receive either a generic error message or will be sent to a for-sale-page. It is vital to keep in mind that there is no grace period for renewal and once its expired its expired and is out there for others to snap up if they are quick enough.
If this happens there is not a lot you can do and the only course of action is proving that the new owner is squatting on the domain name to try and get money out of you. Needless to say, this takes time, money, and legal proceedings and will only drag on any damage being done to your domain .com.vn and brand.
