Thread: Domain registration

  1. #1

    Domain registration

    Hey guys,

    I am going to be hosting a website for my dad and I need to purchase a domain name. I would prefer as cheap as possible but with a company that has a good reputation and good customer service. Any ideas?

    I use directnic.com for my domain name registration. It's $15 a year and they have email forwarding and other cool stuff that can come in handy. They also have great customer support IMHO.

    A friend of mine swears by godaddy.com. It think it is cheaper but you don't get all the bells and whistles that directnic provides and I am nost sure about their customer support.

    godaddy.com. 8.95/year or less, and you own the domain, and they don't spam you, and it's cool.

    i had it recommended to me by chase (chased.org), and i use it and had no problems at all.

    you can check their faqs; even if they go outta business they have a deal with whoever it was that had the strangle-hold on registrations for years to honor all the registrations they do. it's pretty much a good thing.

    How much bandwidth are you looking to use? I run a small hosting company on the side, with full linux support, and even mail server support....

    I would, but I don't have *THAT* much b/w.

    I'm only on a 640/256 line ATM.... Hopefully in a year or so, when the design side of it picks up, I'll be able to afford more data lines. Then I would be THRILLED to host this site.

    Untill then, It's mostly little stuff that I can do.

    I *could* offer email addresses for this domain... for the moderators and admin's and what not....

    mydomain.com . Many of us here use mydns.com for the DNS side of it.

    How cool! How did you get started with it and is it making any money for you?
