How Uniregistry Can Put An End To Forgotten Domains

If you own more than a handful of domains there’s a good chance that they are spread across multiple registrars. As time goes by it is easy to lose track of where all your domains are registered and when each expires. Couple this with an old email address at one of your registrar accounts and a domain you spent good money on could slip through your fingers.

Uniregistry

The problem is, how can you effectively keep track of domains across all the different registrars? In the past I have turned to my good friend Microsoft Excel, but that is an incredibly manual way of tracking things and let’s face it, human error can and will happen.

Enter Uniregistry, a domain registrar started by domain name expert Frank Schilling. Frank has seen this problem first-hand and is using technology to solve the problem. It’s called Domain Tracker and it’s a completely free service that allows you to see all of the domains you have, across all registrars, all in one place.

Domain Name Wire did a great article about this in early September when the feature was first released and I can tell you that it’s already been a very valuable service for me, and I didn’t have to pay a penny or go through some complex configuration process to get it going, it just works.

If Apple were to build a registrar I think they’d be hard pressed to make it as simple and easy-to-use as Uniregistry has done. The Domain Tracker is just another example of a feature that probably has a lot of complexity under-the-hood but requires nothing on the part of the user.

So if you’re looking for a way to get your domains organized once and for all, just know that Uniregistry has you covered!

    Hi Morgan,

    I’ve heard others like the Sherpa’s talk about Uniregistry. Adam Dicker said he has started to slowly move his domains over there. Are you also moving your domains to Uniregistry? The think I can get my head around is their price is a little more than the two registries I use. I used to use 5 different registries, but I now use on two; Name.com and GoDaddy. I get reasonable prices with these registries. I want to help support Frank, but is it really worth my while to transfer my domains there? This is why I was asking if you are in fact transferring yours there? Maybe your getting good deals, but they charge $12.88 for a dot.com. That’s not so bad if you own a few domains, but like us domainers, it feasible to do the transfer?

    Thank you for your insight.
    Steve

    I have a few domains parked at Domain Name Sales so I get emails from UNIREGISTRY.

    However it tells me I own X names, at three registrars.

    Problem is: I only have one registrar.

    Even if I had miscellaneous names parked at two other registrars, but didn’t know about them, they would disappear after failing to be renewed after one year or less.

    So, that makes me wary. As a second point, domainpeople dot com only charges me US$9.50/dot com on the basis of minimum 20/month, so switching would cost me mega hundreds of dollars.

    The Domain Tracker is a great invention & I’m surprised no one else thought of it before. It gives Uniregistry free brand-awareness and also new customers who decide to one-click transfer domains that are expiring soon.

    @Carl: It’s tracking correctly across 9 different registrars for me.

    @Steve: Uniregistry looks to be putting most of their marketing efforts into the new gTLDs. They’re success isn’t going to hinge on the # of .com registrations they get.
