I'm currently managing several domains and find it a pain to keep track of those expiry dates and make sure they get renewed. What I do now is to manually add those domains to a to-do manager with a reminder and check it say a month before expiry to remind myself (I do have auto-renew for some domains but not all).
If you have a better way to manage it, I'd be happy to hear about it. Thinking of solving my own problem by setting up a website to do it (if there is no better way). So here's a question: would you use such a web application where you just enter the domain names that you manage, and it will pull out the expiry automatically, adds a reminder say 2 months before expiry and keep reminding you till the whois record shows that it has been renewed?
This way I can be sure I won't miss any of those expiry dates. It is something I myself will use but would like to hear what you guys think? I found some online tools that does this but it doesn't seemed reliable or intuitive enough (e.g. advertisements all over). PM me if any of you are interested and I can send you an invite once the site is up.
Appreciate any inputs!
