The first step towards protecting your domain name from miscellaneous hacking attempts is to make use of the password protection facility wisely. Choose a complex password that is difficult to guess, like a combination of upper and lowercase letters with a digit or two in it with make a strong password that will help you to guard your registrar user id.

Second, it is advisable to have full control over your domain; this can be done by ensuring the Registrant, Admin, and Technical contacts of your domain on your name, as only these three parties have the right to make changes in the ownership information. You can check this by using the Whois tool, if you see a registrar name or ISP appear in any of these options then you must get your domain registration info changed to take over the charge.

Another thing to remember during the domain name registration procedure is to ask the registrar about the additional safeguard services offered. Most of the registrars offer different set of safeguards so it becomes very important to go through all the options that your registrar is offering to protect your domain registration. To elaborate on this point, like some of the registrars give you the facility to lock the domain, locking the domain allows changes in domain record only manually instead via the traditional email mode.

Whenever you get a domain registered, you will receive emails containing information about the domain registration and ownership authorization. It is advisable to read all the mails very carefully to avoid any kind of future pitfalls. By taking care of all the basic things related to security you can reduce significant amount of risk.

To keep your domain safe and secure, report any kind of suspicious activity to the registrar immediately. Any suspicious email related to your domain name registration or notice from Whois regarding change in domain records should be considered as red alert to security. Lastly, always remember, the renewal date of your domain because at times people lose control of the domain by their negligence instead of malice. It is highly important to get your domain name renewed by the due date to avoid losing it.
