Opinions on where to purchase domain names needed.
I'd like to hear some of your opinions on where you think are some good places to go to purchase domain names. I'm thinking of purchasing one myself, but I don't even know where to begin as far as rating different places on price/quality/service/etc. I need a jump start to point me in right direction.
I think www.godaddy.com beats everyone hands down. Cheap and decent service.
Everyone I know who have used Gandi have been extremely satisfied, and so have I.
Excuse me if this seems like a naive question but how do registrars set the price for domain name reservations?
I think netsol charges the other registrars $6 per domain name per year.
I always use www.000domains.com which is $13.50 a year per domain. I know there are cheaper options, but I've been using them for as long as I can remember and I'm very happy with them. Always get prompt replies to my questions and I have a number of names registered with them. I don't see the point in switching to someone else if all I'm going to save is $5.
Network Solutions charges a lot because they think they're a monopoly, and want to rake in as much cash as they can. However, they only charge the other registrars $6 per domain name. Some registrars jack up this price, others don't.
Another gandi customer here. I used them at a friend's reccomendation.
Satisfied directNIC - http://www.directnic.com - customer. Have been for many years. Not the cheapest at $15/yr, but I like the features they offer and the service has been top notch.
Don't use joker.com.
some guy I know
Thanks so much for the help guys. Now that I have some of the BS filtered out, my search will much more fruitful. Again, your help is much appreciated!
I just used DirectNic ( http://www.directnic.com/ ) for the first time. This was based on a recommendation posted on the CityDesk forum. Everything worked fine.
I've been using directnic.com for more than 2 years and purchased / renewed 26 domains from them -- I'm 100% satisfied.
