So you've got hundreds of IDN... how do YOU keep track of expiries?

I keep notebook with a list of registrars next to a list of relevant expiry dates, and I cross them off as they're renewed. I keep a duplicate post-it stuck on my monitor so I can't miss it.

There HAS to be a better way, without giving up any personal security and without being a Linux guru.

So, how do you keep track of your various registrar and domain expiry dates?

i personally feel comfortable with companies like dyndaot holding my personal info like my credit card and just set it to auto renew.

besides how do the pros do it. i am sure in their case its not done manually.

Consolidate. Don't have too many registeries. ICANN are now making things safer by Escrowing all names, so if your registery goes tits up, then you shouldn't have problems with your names.

Don't rely on expiry notices, but also don't ignore them.

Keep ahead. Now where you are up to. Keep pushing those re-newals forward and keep at least 6 Months ahead. 12 months ahead is better.

I use an excel spreadsheet with 4 columns.
Account Name, Account Number, Next Expiration Date, Last Updated (date)

Easy to keep it sorted by "next (upcoming) expiration date", and then I enter the current days date each time I make changes to account. Also, I make it a habbit to do renewals on the first of the month. Like RD said, best advice is stay a good ways ahead and always check those renewal notices.

Keeping ahead is good from a budgetary perspective. We are currently approx. at end of November, but going to be doing another block soon that should take us through to April 2009.

move all your names to one registrar (you trust) and just check their emails / log in regularly. everyone i know that doesn't bother to consolidate domains (ascii or idn) has ended up losing some.

I think you're right about consolidating... I use far too many registrars: DS, Moniker, Enom, Dynadot, Dotster, GD, Netsol LOL.

Maybe not into just one registrar, but a couple or few, to mitigate the risk of ruin, however unlikely that may be.

I do autorenew in one registrar, but each of those domains I know I want to keep. The others I haven't had time to go through, and just go through them as they turn up for renewal.

I used to have everything on autorenew until I found I autorenewed a bunch of domains with spelling mistakes I meant to drop!
