    if i'll lose username and password that means i lost domain?

    Hello,


    today user asked me direct question: if i'll lose domains username and passwd i'll lose domain? What should i answer? (in example you can say, domains are registered of domainsite, 1and1 and so on)
    There were any accidents when user cannot get back domain name?

    Thanks

    If you lose your username and password to your account with the registrar, it would mean you won't be able to adjust any domain settings. There could be an alternative to resetting your password, maybe the user can try using the forgot password wizard (which many registrars have), if not, try contacting the registrar.

    By losing the username and password, it doesn't mean you actually lose the domain as it will still be registered to the user until it expires. If it's not locked, then they could probably transfer it to another registrar.

    They would go ahead by resetting your password on your account with the registrar. They would most likely go by your user account and NOT your domain information because many accounts allow people to register multiple domains with different WHOIS information.

    It would be best to contact your registrar on this, and they could provide further information.

    Some registrars can provide your user info if you provide the CC number you used at signup time

    exactly, they can even return a stolen domain transfered between their accounts back to the original owner in some cases.

    It depends if the registrar is willing or capable for that matter
