I usually use namecheap but am looking to see if people have other recommendations (No Godaddy. I wouldn’t register with them if my life depended on it.)August 16, 2011 at 9:27 pm #14811
All I’ll say is do NOT EVER use 1&1, what I’ve gone through is ridiculous. They are trying to charge me for a domain that I cancelled. The best part is the years they’re charging for 2010-2011 it didn’t even exist. Even if that wasn’t the case, their support is outsourced and horrible.
I do also like InternetBS, I’ve never had any problem with them and the prices are cheap, the only issue with them is the most complicated thing their customer support can handle is how to change your nameservers, if that.August 16, 2011 at 11:20 pm #14812
I also had a ridiculous experience with 1&1 that I had forgotten about. I’ve never heard of InternetBS.August 17, 2011 at 11:44 am #14813
Why not GoDaddy?August 17, 2011 at 1:15 pm #14814
^ Because their CEO hunts elephants.
But really, it’s because GoDaddy is just as lowly as 1&1. Their services are terrible, their support is worse, and their “control panel” is a nightmare to navigate.August 17, 2011 at 1:47 pm #14815
If you’re Canadian, I recommend Domainsatcost.ca. My experience with them has been entirely positive.August 17, 2011 at 3:26 pm #14816
Personally I have never had an issue with GoDaddy (except they email me like every other day with a sale of some sort) but since I don’t really have to do much through GoDaddy I haven’t had much experience. They did charge my card for a domain I did not want renewed (I had it setup accidentally for automatic renewal) and when I called and explained they refunded my money then and there – no questions asked.
I know you’re opposed to them, but just figured I’d throw my 2 cents in for ya.August 17, 2011 at 10:11 pm #14817
Godaddy is a nightmare. I had a good experience ONE time with their customer service and that was it. It’s just not worth it.August 17, 2011 at 11:42 pm #14818
True, GoDaddy’s control panel is a pain, and I’ve never used their customer service… however, I used GoDaddy for 3 months and it never had any downtime, so that’s something at least…August 18, 2011 at 1:00 am #14819
I don’t want godaddy’s hosting service so downtime is really irrelevant. I just want a place to register a domain that ISN’T godaddy. Period.August 23, 2011 at 3:07 pm #14820

I use NameCheap now, but I still have one domain on Name.com and I’ve found their services are nice. When I registered my first domain, they had Google Apps integrated in and everything, so it was a breeze to set up.September 5, 2011 at 6:10 am #14822
I’ve had a domain on Name.com as well. They weren’t too bad. Very basic I thought. I wasn’t too impressed. I’ve also had few domains on GoDaddy, but I’ve long since left their awful services. I would never go back. In the end, I’ve found that NameCheap is the best. I’ve never had any troubles with them and they’re always so helpful.
