I have been reading some blog & forum posts – Everything had “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” written all over them. I felt this is one thing we forget in all the excitement and fun coming from domaining.
1. Blog post from Jamie. Definitely the people who are affected for no reason of theirs are going to feel the pinch and frustration. But when Bido or anyone is going to block a whole country then the problem has to be serious and hence the tough decision.
2. Forum sale from RJ at Namepros. I was checking the “side note to developers” just above the domain listings. “I lost more than 50 sites in one day because of nonexistent backups.” – This caught my attention.
What i saw from these is that you shouldn’t put all your eggs in one basket. We will have to spread the risks. Some do domaining for hobby and some for earning. No matter how you do it i feel when you put your money & time into something its wise to spread the risks.
