    Using something other than GoDaddy...

    Is there any real reason to use a domain registrar other than GoDaddy?

    Is there someone out there with a better service? Lower prices? I see advertisements for many registrars but I have yet to see anything that would make me want to use their services over those of my long-time friend GoDaddy.

    Thoughts?

    GoDaddy's interface is something that gives me creeps. I hate it. I despise it. It's awful. I prefer Dynadot.

    Well, try it yourself: Fabulous, eNom, Moniker, Netsol, Domainsite, Mydomain etc. The first three are known to have better security features than Godaddy and better interface too. I still keep most of my domains at Godaddy due to good contacts if anything happens (hacking, scam..), and the discount codes.

    If you expect excellent service,then i would recommend Name.com

    Cheap and Best!

    What sort of service, though?
    I register my domains, I keep them updated and alter some information here and there - what possible service does a registrar provide?

    I use NameCheap. It's just faster. It takes less than 30 seconds to register a domain, none of this "Would you like hosting with that? Err, how about a sundae?"

    I agree completely! And they also offer free who.is protection.

    You never know, something might go wrong one day, would you rather to ask people that provide crappy support or awesome support?

    I have one issue with Godaddy. Should you forget to renew a domain after like 15 days, Godday puts it up for sale. Most other registers give you a 35 day grace period.

    Only if you need other domain extensions, .pl, .lv, .lt for example or if you want cheaper .eu at Dynadot, or cheap .net domains at Moniker.
    ...

  10. Right now I am using godaddy and namecheap . I think both of them are great and you can find good discount coupons on both platforms easily .
