I got an email from Network Solution to renew several dominions:

Renew for:

2 years Save 10% ($63.00)
5 years Save 20% ($140.00)
9 years Save 40% ($189.00)

It seems to me a good offer.

I am going to renew for 5 years, but before doing it I would like to know other opinions.

You're paying too much IMHO. Try somewhere like [url=gandi.net]Gandi[/url] and you'll save a lot of money, and you'll be able to retain more of your hair ;)

You pay FAR too much money with NS. [godaddy.com...] offers some GREAT prizes:

.COM .NET .ORG
1 year @ $8.95/yr
10 years @ $6.95/yr

NOW! Available .CC
1 year @ $34.95/yr
10 years @ $32.95/yr

Could save you a lot of money.10 years with godaddy almsot equals 2 years with NS. i have 2 domains with godaddy.com - so far everything is perfect.

Of course, i am in no way affiliated with goddady.com :)

Hi Bill!

Thank you for this excellent suggestion!

So that it is not important which company you use to renew the registration.

Is is easy to switch from Network Solution to Gandi?

I registered all dominions with Network Solution and I would prefere that everything is going fine with the renew.

I apologize for these silly questions but I had trouble to change something with Network solution too! I was trying to change the name of registrar but it was impossible to do that: In fact I could have changed it, but the procedure did not went fine; they were sending me a lot of email asking every time the same questions; I answered every time with no success.

Do you think that with Gandi it will be easier?

Hi JonB!

Thank for your suggestions too.

Are all these companies reliable?

Is, at this time, Network Solution in the same position IBM was years ago with personal computer? No monopoly, good prices for everybody?

What companies, most of Webmasterworld members are using to registar dominions?

Thank you,

Angiolo

Hi angiolo,

I use Gandi as well with no complaints and good prices. You will find a special form here [gandi.net] for transfering domains from another registrar.

Thank you Woz!

I will try to use Gandi.

PS. I think that there is a bug in how the "post" manages links: linkink the address in your post it appears a http:// before the address you posted (it doesn't work immediately but is is easy to correct the address)

angiolo,

I haven't transferred a domain from NSI to Gandi, but it has worked with other registrars. You'll have to create a Gandi ID first, then just go to the page Woz indicated (remove the http:// from the beginning) and fill in the information. It's pretty simple, and they have good customer service.

Just make sure your domain falls within the transfer parameters Gandi describes. It can't be a new domain...I remember that. There are a few technicalities you've got to keep in mind. It's all explained during the transfer process.

Thanks to everybody!

It was incredible for me, browsing the suggested companies, to discover that the pure cost that the Internet database require to Registrar companies is only 6 $!

I think that shares from Network solution are falling down in these days.
