How Can I Keep a Domain When I Register It?

ICANN

Episode 1711

Sandy from Long Beach, CA

Sandy wants to buy a domain name, but it worried that if her registrar goes out of business, that she'll lose it. Leo says that isn't how it works. Once she registers a domain, that information is transferred to ICANN, which keeps the registry. The key is to buy it herself and not use a middle man like a consultant, who could register it in their own name and just give access. Buy it directly from a registrar like Google Domains.
