    Best Registrar?

    Hi All,

    I have been using NetworkSolutions for some time now, and quite frankly i think they are crap.

    A few people recommended enom, which seems to be quite good, but i couldn't determin whether they allow you to privatly register your domain (aka none of your details show up in whois).

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    I've used Registerfly, Godaddy, 000domains, and Namecheap. They've all worked well for me, but I have the majority of my domains with Registerfly.com because of the ease of us and available protection. I believe that they're coming out with a new design soon for the system (at least on the visual end) and it looks pretty good so far. They've been reliable for me, but so have all the rest. I think you're fine with any of the ones that I named.

    I've used totalregistrations and godaddy, I am migrating from total to godaddy because of a problem I've had.

    WMS,

    There are many good domain registrars nowdays that puts customers in the center of their business. Whichever registrars that you intend to use, I strongly suggest that you make sure it is ICANN.org accredited domain registrar.

    When you have a third party organization like ICANN.org that monitors the domain registrar operation from time to time, it is easier to make complaints and have your say sometimes.

    Godaddy.com is very good and does allow (for a fee) "private" registration. I've used many registrars over the years and haven't really had any problems with any of them. I still have quite a few domains at Godaddy.

    One thing that I don't understand, registered and go, I don't think I visit them more than 3 times a year

    Well, I would avoid d odora.com. Highly recommend EV1domains, namecheap and DirectI

    Q: What is the cheapest and/or best registrar (or reseller)?
    A: None. The market is always changing and defining price can vary. Some places say ‘free domain WITH widget’ and others say ‘free domain if you do such and such’ and others just claim $6 domains. Quality also varies from user’s experience. Some find an interface they like and advocate the use of a particular registrar for that reason. Some people find support to be the most important feature in domain registrars, and feedback on support quality will vary from person to person. You have to either listen to the general public and their advice or try various registrars until you find one you like.

    Why cloak WHOIS? If you plan to do any business on it... cloaking would drive potential customers away in my mind. A better solution might be a POBOX.
