does the Alpnames.com worthy of trust?

does the Alpnames.com worthy of trust? it seems the $5 .com registration promo still valid, do it accept international users? or have some country limits? and I wonder whether the transfer out is easy.

thanks :p

    2) yes
    3) I don't know
    4) I haven't try yet but should be easy (standard panel)

    Well, I like them. Great price, great panel and whois privacy is $1 (so it's cheaper than free :P )

  • I tried them, have few domains, it seems they are from reselleclub and its sellers, as of no issues is faced from our end. May be during transfer or renewal some issues we may face but as of now its fine.

    They are fine. I don't have any domains with them that I care about, though. I'll go with a more well-established registrar for domains I care about.

  • They are OK and trustworthy. They do run some nice promos. Yes, you can transfer a domain, just follow their rules for specific TLDs. https://my.alpnames.com/kb/servlet/KBServlet/faq1375.html

    I am here occasionally nowadays, because I really prefer https://talk.lowendspirit.com . You should try it, it is fat-free, delicious with fresh ingredients combined with the deep knowledge of the old chefs!

  • They're good. Transfer out easy, They take orders from almost any country.

    Plus their panel allows domain push. bulk edit etc.

    Such a shame, my digestive system rejects spam. I mostly eat spearphished cod as far as meats go.

    Jokes aside can you detail a little more the spam? We talkin' my-ex-opened-credit-cards-in-my-name-and-spent-six-hundred-dollars-on-CBT-porno kind of spam, or Alpnames-sends-you-newsletters-about-their-sales-just-like-every-other-site-and-they-even-include-opt-out-links-if-you-opted-in kind of spam?

    Sure, thing. I hope you're on the clock.

    Promo stuff even if I unsubscribed before (not like every other site), just did that again.

    ooh that's like, really bad, or something. unsolicited doodoo is even a big no-no in gibraltar (http://www.gra.gi/download/318/2006s074.pdf sections 22ish-27ish) where alpnames hq is.

    back on topic - i personally wouldn't trust alpnames with any domain i actually use (ie not parked) since they're operating a resellerclub store ffs. but, i don't think they're going to flat-out disappear, they operate a hell of a lot of domains given their infrastructure. as far as the new gTLDs go, they manage over 2,000,000 domains, which is more than any other registrar except West.cn https://ntldstats.com/registrar

  • I've used them plenty of times for useless domains due to cheapness. And if they work out usually move them out after a year.

    They are not operating a resellerclub's store.

    AlpNames said: Hi, I would like to reassure people that AlpNames is not a "shell company". We are an ICANN accredited registrar that is physically located and staffed in Gibraltar. Further, we are not merely a "ResellerClub reseller", although it is easy to understand why people may have that impression, given that we do use the same backend provider as ResellerClub, as do many other registrars. We are always happy to help with any queries or problems that our customers, or potential customers might experience - just get in touch via email, Facebook, Twitter or live chat (via alpnames.com) and we will do what we can. Love from Gibraltar! x

    And they are physically located in Gibraltar, not just for tax purposes. The employees are located there, as their offices are.

    thanks everyone, got a .com from Alpnames, they use PublicDomainRegistry indeed, I wonder why they don't use their own, since they are also an IANA accredited registrar.

  • I don't know if they can go on in the long run, too much spam, I bought some domains there but nothing important, for example I got dollarvps.com when it is expired, but my main domains I do not feel like keeping them there.
