Tips to avoid getting your domain name suspended

  1. Be aware that there is a public WHOIS record for each domain you own.
  2. Check your WHOIS record using one of the sites above, and make sure that the email address and other contact information is still valid.
  3. If you make any changes to your domain (change your web company, or you update your contact information), watch your inbox very closely, because that's when you will get a verification email.
  4. Before clicking on a verification link, be very careful that the domain name and details match your registrar's.
