Whether it's GoDaddy or any of the other services who let you register a domain name, they all charge you a yearly fee for the privilege of owning that domain. The catch is that if you don't pay the yearly fee for your domain name, it expires, and that means it will no longer link to your website or your email. And, worse, someone ELSE could permanently take it over. Think about it, your competitor could take over your web domain. It happens a lot more often that you would think.
It's tempting to think that your domain wouldn't appeal to very many other people. Who would want to steal "MyWebDomain.com" anyway? And so you let it expire... So what? Who wants that? You'd be surprised! Cyber squatters are more than happy to pounce on your domain, posting their own content, until you cough up an exorbitant fee to reclaim it.
Keep your domain safe with site-watcher. For every website you monitor, we'll check the expiration date every day and send you an email alert when the expiration date is near to give you plenty of time to renew. The control panel will display a warning showing when the domain due for renewal within 30 days.
