what do you think of channelislandhosting I did some research but can't find trusted info about them.

why particularly this registrar? It's the cheapest ccTLD registrar (according to tld-list.com) am interested in.

like 50% cheaper than the second cheaper.
did you do business with them before?

  • seems like nobody knows them, so I guess ill ignore them.

    Thanked by 1JasonM
  • yea I agree. seems ill go the expensive way or just bail.
    the domain is just luxury but cheap for 4 letters (including TLD)

    I just use https://www.channelisles.net/ for anything from them. Mainly as they helped me recover a domain that my previous registrar charged for renewal but didn't actually renew.

  • I have a few .gg/.je domains with them. No complaints personally.

    As just a domain registrar I think they're fine (I don't use them for anything else), but I've only been with them since January.
    I was referred to them by a friend who has been using them for 3 years though.

    Maybe they're just the middlemen, get that % profit per design client from another agency/company. Making money any way possible.

    did they ask you to submit an address within Jersy? or the domain will be suspended.

    I never heard them before :/

    Maybe i'm wrong, but these prices seems not really specials for me. There is some new TLD with low price (.party, .win, .top etc), but on this website £24.29 GBP. for example Namesilo, Porkbun, etc is cheaper at the moment (registration and renewal too). They prices in GBP, which is expensive (exchange rate) than USD, EUR. I think, they are resellers (maybe Tucows?), because they main domain has been registered with them. I not see them on the 'ICANN Accredited Registrars' list.

    You should use a known (reliable) & accredited registrar.

  • I think they are under https://enrapture.gg which I think is a sister company.

    No? I'm using my real address in Norway without issues.

    As far as I know, anyone can register example.gg or example.je without being based in either Guernsey or Jersey.

  • yea that's what I thought, not sure what they on about tho.

    channelislandhosting.net are not cheapest among all registrars. Its just they are running a special promo for some gTLDs. I'll rather register with well-known, reputed U.S/EU registrar than this! Put your domain(s) in secure hands than registering with some unknown companies!

    .gg became gTld, so no need for identity check

    I built a page that shows the domain prices for all the LEB/LET hosts in realtime if you want to use that to compare with. You can find it here https://dah85.com/domainprices.html

  • @easy said: .gg became gTld, so no need for identity check

    Nope. All two letter extensions are cctld.

    When you're afraid, close your eyes and count to five. Sometimes it works for me.

  • easyeasy Member

    yeah, but from iana.org even .co or .io is ccTLD. but they serve as a gTLD
