What happens to my registered domain if registered company goes down?

Dear experts,

Recently I've decided to gather all the domain names that are registered under my working company together. I've decided to go with Godaddy.  I am wondering if all those registered domains are kept at one location if Godaddy has some issue, will others still be able to access my web contents (also hosted by another web hosting company) through one of the domains that I've registered under Godaddy?

You are responsible for your own domain names - no one else. If you wish to transfer them to GoDaddy (they are a Registrar), then move them. GoDaddy will take them.

A domain name is safe until it becomes due and payable for the next renewal. That is why you need to move them. If the domain names are not paid (you left them at a Registrar you do not use) then someone else can take the name. You get 30 days grace I think.

Also, I have not had a Registrar go down (bankrupt or whatever), but presumably they would let you transfer domain names if this happens.
If I'm not mistaken, you are asking about a temporary malfunction of the hosting service. That is a reason you always have to assign at least 2 name-servers, in different locations, so that if one is unresponsive the other is still available and thus your domain reachable. Godaddy probably has more than just 2 such name servers, and I expect them to host your domain on several of them. So there it is unlikely that all of them will be down. Additionally you can always install your own name server(s) to provide additional anti-failure security. You just have to make sure that it is added in your registered domain.
