Which domain registrar?

Which domain registrar would people recommend these-days?

Most of my domains are .com/.net and I have a few UK's

they're currently registered through a logicboxes reseller, but now that the privacy protection stuff is no longer free I'm not sure I really want to stay on that platform as personally I'm not a big fan of it.

Although I have a reseller account pretty much all the domains on there thesedays are mine anyway so it doesn't really need to be a provider that's designed for resellers.

Might just go back to using namecheap which is who I used to use in the past, or if there's someone else I should be looking at?

  • First, find a coupon to register at Godaddy to save money.

    Then transfer to namesilo, and renew if necessary.

  • I use name.com a .com with privacy would cost 15$ year

  • I will recommend OVH & NameSilo not only they have cheap prices but free WHOIS privacy as well.

  • NameSilo.

  • namesilo

  • OVH I found to be a pain to transfer .UK's but personally like namecheap although namesilo does free privacy I can't say ive used them yet

    NameSilo +1

  • I've been using AhNames for a couple of years now. Free privacy and best prices for .com/.net/.org/.me. Can't help with the .uk ones.

  • .com/.net namesilo is the cheapest.
    *.uk tsohost and ovh are cheap for 2+ years

    Be interesting to see if the ones offering free privacy start charging for it as the logic boxes reseller I use claim it's due to new icann fees

    Will probably use Tsohost for the UK domains as I already have some other services with them and they've been pretty decent so far.

  • I would just use a coupon at Godaddy.com you can always transfer if you wish to -
    However their 24/7 call support is very useful and especially needs recognizing!

    I prefer Namecheap (privacy is free) and the coupons usually bring it down when it's time to renew. As for real privacy (ie anonymous), you could try Yohost.org

    Always use "privacyplease" code to get whois privacy for free.

    I used to recommend namecheap. Now their page is too slow to do anything 99% of the time, so I guess go with namesilo, which is cheapest from what I know. Have not tried it, but many recommend it.

    Vote for namecheap because I'm a Chinese and GoDaddy is unfriendly with Chinese.

    I think godaddy is also sexist and against net neutrality. (?)

  • Internet.bs

  • Moved some of my .com/.net to namesilo and the uk domains to tsohost

    Got a few more that aren't due to renew anytime soon that I'll leave where they are for now.

    Could be a bit risky. Their TOS States you must be a US citizen :) But if you can bypass that then good luck!

  • daviddavid Member

    What service's TOS states you have to be a US citizen? Namesilo or Google Domains?

    I checked google domains and don't see any mention of it. The section that was quoted seems to be from Namesilo, but it's only in regards to ".us" domains, not the service in general.

    • For good support, domainbox
    • For a very simple API, name.com
    • For price.. err.. haven't compared.
