I have earlier recommended 5 steps to optimize your domain portfolio. In the following I will elaborate on the 1st step.
1st step: Which domains have you actually registered?
If your company has registered domains "as it comes" for years, then it is plausible that they been registered by different employees using different registrars. When an employee leaves the company (which can happen!), then it is important that the employee´s email is forwarded to ensure that renewal reminders are received. Normally when a customer has not reacted to our 3 renewal reminders by email we follow up via phone. And in most of the cases the contact person is not working in the company anymore, so the emails were never received. I therefore recommend you to add an extra contact email in your client account.
To get an overview of the company´s domains can be quite a detective work, but there is a great tool available on the web to see the actual number. Go to http://www.domaintools.com/registrant-search/ to make a domain owner lookup. Here you can test for specific domain registrant details or part of a domain name. The easiest is to search for the company name, key contact persons and contact emails. You will have to order a report from them to see further details.
When you search for your company name or trademarks as part of the domain name it is likely that domains have been registered by 3rd parties. If local business partners are the formal domain owner, then contact them in order to transfer the domain owner rights. Regarding other 3rd party registrations you will have to evaluate from case to case whether it is worth chasing them.
