hi,

i recently started using [godaddy.com...] for registering new client domains and am really satisfied with their service and price (9 dollars for com, net, org).

another one is [powerpipe.com...] (same price).

is anybody else using one of these services or another? what is your experience so far?

thanks a lot!

I've been using [dotregistrar.com...] with good results. They are a touch cheaper on larger blocks than two above and fully accredited. They also have a resellers api.

What's the interface like at GoDaddy? It looked interesting. That's the only draw back to dotregistrar (goofy interface, but then again - all registrars have goofy interfaces).

godaddy is really userfriendly. you set up a username and password for each client or domain and if you need to make changes, you just log in and then you can change the registrant's address, the contacts (adminstrative, technical, billing) or the nameservers.

if you're interested, they also offer a reseller option.

they've also got a good support.

powerpipe is also said to be good, but somehow, i did not like their site.

I've been using IYD [itsyourdomain.com...] a strong player in the market and claimed to be in the top ten registrars. Great management interface and you can get a live person on the phone in less than a minute (if needed).

I use BulkRegister.com. Not as cheap as some but the interface is painless and there's even an email template for registration.

I use both GoDaddy (cheap singles)and dotregistrar (resale). They are both good for these.

That's rare. I'm starting to value that more than ever (especially after yesterdays fiasco with the host here).

I don't mean to hijack the topic, but who has a really good reseller api?

hi brett,

sorry for my stupid question: what does api mean?

Not a dumb question. API is shor for Application Program(ing) Interface. Generally a generic term for when two programs talk to each other in a structured environment.

In this case, it's a system where websites can get wired into the registrar and put their face on the sales and manage domains.

Hey Brett, did you check out IYD's interface? They have various programs, each with a different level of customization.

register.com has a insane API, you can register all the tld's, but I can't figure out how to get paid on it....
