    Hello,

    I'm going to be registering a domain and I am wondering which is the best company. I usually use namecheap for domains but they are usually short term .infos and i would like some advice to the best registrar to use for a website that i will be keeping for many years.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated

    Thank you

    well, i dont know why you say that. But a lot of people at another reuputed forum recommend using GoDaddy for *domain registrations only* :cool2:

    Namecheap all the way - have had domains for quick jobs and a couple for years and years.
    No problems whatsoever, quality registrar imo.

    brilliant thanks everyone so its between namecheap and godaddy

    I've bought domains from both but only for short term, godaddy will probably be easier if i want to sell the domains in the future but namecheap will probably be cheaper and free private whois, didn't think this part would be such a hard decision lol

    any more recommendations? any advice is useful

    Thanks :)

    Go for either name.com or moniker.com

    Both are equally user friendly and can be made private, if necessary.

    Lol @ ew godaddy. I feel you on that.

    I used internetbs.net and have been using them for a few years. $7 .com's all day and the dns / forwards are instant.
