Which company did you register your domains with?
Just doing a survey here...

I am with Network Solutions & DirectNIC. I was wondering what domain registrar you domain experts are sticking with. And what features/services should I look for when deciding a domain registrar?

Thanks!

Bulk Register

BulkReg - not necessarily the cheapest, but their customer service has been second to none & that's not something that can be said about all Registrars I've dealt with in the past.

A good reputation always helps, as do recommendations (presumably one of the reasons you're asking in the first place?!?). Although cost will always be a factor, it's not necessarily the critical one here. Ease of registration, speed and quality of support, ease of transfers in and out, ease of individual and global domain record updates - all items that you may want to factor into your choice of Registrar. BulkRegister have performed brilliantly for the last two years on all of the above - as will have many others I'm sure. Personally though, I can't recommend them highly enough.

I also use BulkRegister. Price is good and it's easy to modify/add/move domains.

But do these companies provide extreme security to protect our domains? With Network Solutions, we can fax out a form to change registrar's email address.

Godaddy here. The customer service is top-notch. Just log in to the control panel to change contact information, DNS settings, tranfer domains, etc. Fast, easy, and ultra-reliable in my experience.

Yes, I've been using DirectNIC for the last 3 years now. Never had any problem, great service and very reliable in my opinion. There are cheaper options out there, but I like the straightforward approach of DirectNIC, never trying to you sell stuff you don't need and didn't ask for.

What I forgot to mention,
I did always wondered how DirectNIC ended up with all these 'exotic' subdomains? Try for example this search at google ,site:directnic.com exotic,

Network Solutions.

They've really cleaned up their act from a couple of years ago, and believe it or not, we've found their customer service to be simply excellent lately.

This from the chief hater of NetSol 4 years ago. :) So I mean it when I say I've been really impressed lately.

They've also got some really cool features for managing thousands of domains.

Bulk Register and INWW. Bulk Register's customer service has been great for me as well, very responsive.

Been using GoDaddy for a minute now. My only gripe is you need to wait 'til your order is processed before you can edit DNS as it won't allows you to input nameservers when registering domains. Anyone know why on earth they might have changed this? Imagine setting up a couple of sites only to find out that you forgot to go back and change the nameservers.

GOgaddy are slow and cumbersome for sure.Its not for professional domain owners at all.They have sacrificied efficiency for crass promotions of their xtra services.
Mydiscountdomains and namewinner are cheap ,quick and easy to manage AFAIC.

My 2cents

Since I haven't seen them mentioned here yet, I'll throw in my preferred registrar, Gandi.net. When I last read the t's & c's for a whole bunch of registrars, theirs were the ones I liked the best. They also have a web interface that lets me do just about anything I could possibly want to with my domains, and provide extras that I can actually imagine using at no extra charge. No idea about transfers, though, since I've had no inclination to try one. The only downside is that if you're native currency isn't the Euro, the price fluctuates with the exchange rate.

I have no affiliation with Gandi beyond being a customer.

Interesting nobody mentioned OpenSRS. I've been using them for about 2 year and have no complains. $10/domain-year is a "OK" price.

When we left netsol 18 mos. ago for BulkRegister, it was like someone handed us an icy cold pilsner after a week in the desert....

DotRegistrar - $6.49
NameBargain - $8.88
(a division of Register.com)

My bulk domain registrations are with DotRegistrar (requires large qty). For 'no muss, no fuss' - NameBargain is probably the best way to go for small quantity registrations.

I also reluctantly use NetSol for the domains I've been too lazy to switch over.
