    Hello folks..

    Since Name.com changed its pricing for private whois.. I decided to go for a walk with other registrants..
    1&1 and Netfirms both offer Free private whois... I registered in both, here are the conclusions:

    1&1 - Slow, bad customer service, canceled my first registration attempt for just a typo I made.. 24H to get the domain. And did I mention slow?

    Netfirms - Took a while to get the domain (Few hours).. CS seem good, Private whois for .com's / .net's and fair pricing ---> Not a bad choice.

    Name.com - Became too expensive for domainers, however; The best there is on the market.


    Just so you know......


    Ciao for now..

    Did you try namecheap.com ? What about godaddy?

    Also most domainers use godaddy because its cheap, almost everyone knows them, easy to push a domain to another account etc etc...

    What do you like on name.com? (You mentioned they are the best on the market)

    Cheers

    Name.com is fast.. they protect your privacy for real (Unlike godaddy which will open your crappy "domains by proxy" to anyone).

    The platform is amazing.. you can open 15 domain windows to edit / copy paste. Their support was fantastic to me.

    SPEED - Pay for the domain, 5 minutes later you have it. (At Max).
    Name sever speed - I recently changed hosting. All nameservers were updated within 2 minutes, and the new hosting was up within 10 minutes.

    Its expensive, but it has its quality.

    With that being said, I am still going to move my .coms / Net's to Netfirms.

    There is no reason in the world to pay $18 for a single domain.

    I actually tried NameCheap the other day but it was charing me 88USD while GoDaddy was charging 72USD for the same domains (both without coupons). Went with GD and I've been wondering ever since why every says NameCheap is cheap.
