You get what you pay for...
Sorry to be less than sympathetic, but when you choose a domain name registry for your company, you have to consider the risks that your registrar may go belly up.
Its one thing to use the domain name registrar for silly or non comercial sites that you don't care about, but if you're seriously making money to support your family, don't you think switching to starting with a more established site would be the smart choice?
Lets do the math.
The claim of the lead plaintif was that the loss of her domain name meant the loss of her family's income. On the low side, lets say that its $20K (USD). GoDaddy charges $10.00 a year while NetworkSolutions charges $35.00 a year.
One has to ask, is saving $25.00 a year worth the risk of losing an asset that helps to generate more than 20K a year in revenue?
Your domain name is an asset and it should be protected.
