“Part of my role as a PA at Man Investments is the registering of domain names and their renewal globally. We own over 500 domain names and deal with many registrant companies so I do have a lot of experience in this field. Right from the start of .eu the European Domain Name Centre have been extremely helpful, I had no experience of their system, the sunrise period and the following steps to take to register new .eu and subsequently .Asia. Christopher especially talked me through it all and helped with any queries and has continued to be helpful and friendly. I have nothing but good things to say about them in comparison to some of my other domain name registrants. ”Davina Ramsay Man Group PLC

Consider how much turnover your company would lose, if your website was closed for business for a couple of days. Most companies are accepting to negotiate with the new domain owner instead of taking them to court, given that it is the quickest solution, but in most cases it is also extremely expensive. A global player in the fashion industry paid a six digit amount in Euros to get back their .ru domain.
Why do companies forget to renew domain names?
The reason companies forget to renew their domain names is simple. Domain registrars send out emails to remind their clients that it is time to make the annual renewal. However a lot can go wrong from then on. Emails can be overlooked, ignored, end up in a spam filter or simply don´t reach the company. Contact persons will leave the companies, and their emails are closed down. What happens when the registrant ignore these emails? The domain registrars let them expire. There are even registrars who auction expiring domain names. Yes, I know. It is depressing.
Some domain registrars offer automatic domain renewals, but would you not prefer to be in control of, which domains should be renewed, and which ones you should discontinue? Forgetting to expire hundreds of domains in time can be a huge burden on the domain budget. Back in 2003 we did offer automatic domain renewals the first years, however there were too many clients, who forgot to expire their domains in time.
...that is why we introduced the best practice domain renewal
Our service is dedicated to domain managers, who wish to transfer their domains to one registrar and manage all domains in one account. Being a client of European Domain Centre you will receive a renewal reminder, when it is time to renew your domains. You will receive two more reminders, if the first one is ignored. If you still have not renewed your domains, then we will send you a personal email. If there is still no reply, we will CALL you. Yes, you heard it. There is no other domain registrar offering this level of service. It will give you the comfort of knowing that your company will never lose a domain name.
None of our clients have ever lost any domain name with us. Let me repeat: we are the only domain registrar to actually CALL you, if you have forgotten to renew your domain names. Before you decide to transfer your domains, I recommend you to contact your current domain registrar to hear if they offer the same service.
