What Registrar Do You Use?


Recommended Posts

Just figured a neat little trick for GoDaddy, for those who use it.

 

Log in. Search for the stuff you want. Put it in your cart.

Close the window.

 

Now go away for a day or two - GoDaddy will email you with a money-off voucher to complete the purchase. I just got one for 30% off (before taxes, unfortunately). :)

 

GoDaddy has changed. They were notorious for holding domains that people searched for or nearly completed. It seems like they maybe cleaning up thier act.

I'm actually surprised by you all liking GoDaddy. They were firm supporters for the SOPA, which is why Wikipedia decided to finally leave them. Do you all, as site owners, no care about SOPA?

I'm on boobs... er... GoDaddy, too. About 40 domains at the moment, I think. They're cheap and easy (and I used tucows once and really regretted it).   I considered leaving when the whole SOPA thing

After the whole SOPA disaster, I've dropped GoDaddy as my favourite registrar and picked up Namecheap.com, their prices are reasonable, especially with the coupon SOPASUCKS.

They do have new ownership.

Nice, quite a unique little feature imho. I don't think Namecheap do this, however they do always have promotional codes active.

I've used Namecheap for most of my domains because first of all, they support unverified Paypal addresses - which I have. Second of all, they have quite a good support and finally, they are just better than everyone else IMO.

Like you, I used to be with GoDaddy but I dropped them for something else they did before the SOPA disaster.

 

I use to be with Name.com and Namecheap.com but now I'm with Fabulous Domains and plan on sticking with them for the longest time!

For me it is either Namecheap or my web host (and whoever they register domains with!).

 

I think GoDaddy has lost me by their SOPA support and many of the horror stories around them. I don't need my domain auctioned up randomly for GD's benefit. My decision is made: non-GoDaddy.

I used to use name.com, but I moved to namecheap last year. It's so much better, and their control panel is really nice and user friendly. They also update the DNS very fast, which for me is a really good thing. I'm always changing my servers.

The first I ever used was 1&1 but they had HORRIBLE support and were a pain in the butt to cancel out of.

 

Since then I have used enom and GoDaddy. GoDaddy was cheaper. Enom has a better interface.

 

Though I think judging by the good customer responses I may go with Namecheap next time.

Namecheap is the best one I've come across so I use it. It has a really user friendly setup and great staff there to support you. The only reason I've ever used anyone else is because GoDaddy has some very good deals on domains but their public image is awful so I'd choose to avoid them most of the time.

I use Namecheap for domains. They seem amazing, and have always been fantastic for me. They have occasional coupon codes for domain registrations (even .com's) which is good for me!

I haven't tried namecheap yet, is it a good one ? I hear that only Godaddy is far best one ! :)

Sounds like namecheap.com is the general consensus! Guess who will be also checking them out?! That's right. Me. I bought a couple of names at 1&1 because there were cheap. I didn't like all the add-ons at GoDaddy.com. Haven't really tried to do anything yet at 1&1. I know someone here said they had trouble with them. Hope I don't have the same problems at some point. :yawn:

No idea if you will have any problems with 1&1 in the future. I used them the very first time I bought hosting and, to cut a long story short, I am not going to use their service again. Ever.

I use them at the moment for my cloud hosting and not had any problems as of so far
