Domain name theft can be a real problem for web site owners. When you wake up one morning and discover that your domain name has been stolen, your web site is down, your URL has been transferred to a registrar in Russia, your revenue is turned off.... well, let's just say you need to protect your domains from theft.

Domain name theft happens when a third person or registrar steals your domain name without permission.

Employees are often in a great position to steal a company's domain name since they list themselves as registrant or list their email address as the contact.

Domain name theft is more common than people think. I had my email hacked and lost control of my registrant account with GoDaddy. I had to hire an attorney to file a UDRP arbitration with WIPO to get it back.
