If your Domain / Emails / Hosting is in Net4India, your services are at high risk. As Net4 is out of operations for a couple of months now and many of their customers’ services have stopped working/became inactive.
What will happen to your Domain?
Everybody is waiting to hear what ICANN has to say about it. There is no timeline defined for restoration.
Are you able to use your services (that are registered with Net4) ?
If your answer is Yes, There is a possibility that it can get inactive at any time. Domain / DNS / Name Servers / Hosting / Emails etc can stop working.
If you are not prepared with an alternative, your business is at a risk. There is a possibility of data loss.
What Next? Immediate plan of action!
1. For Domain:
- Register at least 5 Domain Extensions [.COM / .NET / .IN / .CO.IN / .ORG ] for straight 10 years. You can check the availability here https://hosting.sanver.com/
- Register new domain names that are best suitable for your business with the above mentioned 5 extensions for straight 10 years.
2. For Emails:
Purchase a new email server. (For immediate reference, check emails products on the below URL)
- Sanver Business Emails : https://hosting.sanver.com/business-email
- Sanver Enterprise Emails: https://hosting.sanver.com/web-hosting/enterprise-email-hosting.php
- Google Workspace Emails: https://hosting.sanver.com/google_apps.php
- CPanel Emails (You may like to contact us for this. We will love to offer the plan that best suits your needs)
- Domain aliasing: One benefit of Domain aliasing is maximum utilization of the features, your email server provides. If something goes wrong with the primary domain, you can immediately start using the aliased domains. This saves time. Avoids hassle.
3. Privacy Protection
You use legal details like your Name, email address, contact number, etc to register your domain name. Immediately after the domain is registered, all these information are freely available on the internet. Adding a privacy protection will safeguard your personal / company legal information. If you avoid getting it for some additional penny, you might get bombarded with unwanted calls, spam emails, or get spammed. Your online assets can get hacked, your data can be sold, your competitors can risk your business, etc. Safer the better!
- This is the heart of your IT infrastructure. You should be aware about your DNS. As this controls rest of your services (Domain / Website / Emails / Any related applications)
- We recommend you get a Premium quality DNS or CloudFlare. (We can help you with both)
