    There have been reports lately in this forum that name.com has considerable downtime.

    Downtime for domain registrations? What are you talking about?

    One thread with one person not being able to reach a domain does NOT equal "considerable downtime".

    Go through the thread. Note also that I said they had a good reputation as far as I've heard until now. I have nothing against a cheap registrar, on the contrary, but when they sell with a loss as appears to be the case that is a bit smelly. But maybe somebody has more information how they can be so cheap?

    It wouldn't even matter if they were down or not once your domain is registered.

    Personally, I think Name.com are an excellent recommended registrar. Any claims of "considerable downtime" are grossly exaggerated.

    For me name.com has the best UI that I have had ever used a refreshing change from Godaddy style.

    I read that thread. The OP said that he couldn't connect for a few minutes.

    Name.com typically sells dot coms at $8.99 - above their cost. The occasional sale at $5.99 (the one in this thread was Friday only) doesn't mean that they are losing money. My local retail & food stores often have below cost sales. It does not make them smelly.

    I've used name.com/domainsite.com for over 5 years with no outages or problems. Do you have firsthand experience with them?
