Our main business domain is with Enom for 12 years. Expiration of the domain is in 5 years from now.

Today we received an email that our Enom account will be forced-migrated to Hover (both are Tucows).

Our options:
1: Do nothing and become Hover
2: Transferring to another registrar (GoDaddy)

We are worried about loosing control over our domain if things go wrong with the migration.

What would you say: Not likely, but possible? No chance?
Any thoughts?

Somebody bought things out ... or decided to take back control, either way, it is a hosting solution. You either like'em or not. Make your decision based on that.

That aid, you do pay for your own domain registration, right? Something separate?

That said, part, two, Tucows is pretty solid so I wouldn't worry over much.

I do not host with them. Only the domain is registered there.

I look at it only from a risk point of view, not from a personal preference point of view.

For example:
If your hosting company goes bankrupt or the server farm explodes, you simply move to another one. But if something goes wrong with the registrar your business is in much larger trouble.
