Registrar question

I have been trying to get a Poll Posted for this w/o any luck, just keep getting kicked back to the main menu.

Which of the following do you rank the best for COM/NET/ORG domains?

Which of the following do you rank the best for .uk domains?

Many thanks

Definitely not Netsol!

Of the list, I'd have to say Stargatenic because they do not have any hidden charges like GoDaddy. That said, I like Dotster best, even though you didn't put them on your list.

In addition, OpenSRS resellers like have a good rep on these boards. is fine for UK domain names.

I'd have to say I'm a fan of OpenSRS resellers. I'm a dotster reseller at the moment, but I'll be switching to resell OpenSRS when I get a chance.

As avara said, seem a pretty good example of an OpenSRS reseller and I've used them in the past. Great service from them.

I've been testing Dotster for the past year. Always have been with Network Solutions before that. My main reason for leaving them was money (Dotster is way cheaper), but the reasons for me to move all my domains to Dotster completely (did so last week) are:
- better and faster customer support
- better control panel for managing your domains
- much (MUCH) less cumbersome domain editing (info, dns etc.)
- cheaper

I have no experience with others though, but Dotster is so satisfying that I don't feel the need to look for another

Yeah, I can't say that I've had any problems with dotster so far, but I'm just a fan of OpenSRS.

I'll bet you're a bunch happier away from Network Solutions! I had the displeasure of using their system for about 30 domains last year and it was such a nightmare. Luckily those domains were transferred over to, which wasn't too bad at the time - still lotsa $$$ though.

The market is so much more competitive now though!

I've been using for about two years. Never a problem, good support (even when I ask dumb questions ), Search Engine friendly Frame Forwarding...
They are a little pricey, $16, but still a bargin for what they offer.
My first was with Notworking Solutions SHUDDER .

This is the first time I checked out dotster. Wow, they are so expensive. They charge so much for every little add-on that many other registrars give you free. Some enom resellers like give you all the addons they charge for, except a pop3 account for the basic price of $8.88. DirectNic gives all of those features except the pop3 account for $15 and I have still not seen a control panel better than theirs. Dotster also charges an additional $25 transfer of ownwership fee. I think their prices are out of line

I only have experience with Network Solutions, Stargate, and Dotster and by far, I'd say Dotster is the best of the three. Network Solutions easily being the worst, if not the worst of any registrar.
