Look after your domain name
Sales Tip of the Month
Did you know?
Look after your domain name

Look after your domain name, and it'll look after you. Your domain name is your brand, your address and can be your biggest asset.

At Anyware we see a few email domain scams, these are the most common forms:

Registration poaching

  • a company contacts you, offering to renew your domain names, and charging you a fee for this. They are effectively poaching business from the existing holder of the domain name

Defensive registrations

  • a company contacts you to register different permutations of your domain name. While it is good to have the most related domain names, the problem is that you can't possibly register all the domains that might be similar to your own.


  • If a company says it can register a domain for 50 years, for example, what they mean is that they'll take your money now and they'll renew it for you every few years when the official registration period expires (if they're still around, that is).

Top tips for protecting your domain name

  • stick with your existing web site hosts or website design team
  • make a note of when your domain names are due for renewal and be suspicious of invoices arriving too early.
  • expect to renew your domain name every 1-5 years
  • always apply common sense when reading mail from people you don't know

If you don't renew a domain name, somebody else can snap it up. You'll not only lose all the traffic you've built up, but your credibility could take a serious hit if your customers go to what they assume is still your website to find disturbing content there

How to create a hyper link in a word doc:
  • Highlight the text that you wish to link.
  • Go to the Insert menu, click on Hyperlink
  • In the "Text to Display" box will be the text you highlighted on the page.
  • In the left column "Existing File or Web Page" will be selected.
  • To choose another document that you created, look for it in the folder section in the middle.
  • To link to a web site, copy and paste in a URL in the "Address" textbox near the bottom of the dialog box.
  • Click OK
  • Test the link

Set Target Frame: The Target Frame button on the right sets whether the link will open in the same browser window (Page default) or in a new browser window. The new browser window is useful if you do not want the user to move away from your original web site (there will be two browser windows open at once).
