Keepin' Track of Domains

 11:08 pm on Dec 4, 2000 (gmt 0)

I have collected a few domains over the years and have relied on memory and paperwork to keep them up-to-date. But as the list grows, so I start to think about putting together a system/database to keep track of them.

Lo and behold, along comes an article [computerworld.com] that talks about just the very same problem. Interesting Reading!

My needs are very modest at this stage so I will write a simple database for them. But I can imagine some people/companies must have a real headache with 100s or 1000s of domains, and would be really interested in how other people cope with the problem.

Anyone care to share some clues as to how they keep track of domains?

I use Quickbooks to invoice my customers, and can memorise invoices within it - so every time i register a domain name for myself (or a customer for that matter) I invoice it (when it's for me i make the invoice value zero) and then memorise it to be invoiced again 30 days before the renewal date.

I can create a list from the accounts package of all memorised transactions, and see which ones are for me and what domain names they are, and when they're up for renewal.

Works for me"

I use a web based system from bulkregister which I can import straight into Excel. From there it is easy. List by dates is easier for me after I divide by owners.

On this very subject is an article from Newsbytes [newsbytes.com] stating that,according to a Netnames survey, under 1% of UK firms have anyone actively protecting their Domain Names.

As the number of domain names out there continues to balloon, this could develope into quite a challenge.
