    Hey Guys,

    I'm still new to this. I see there are many registrars out there but which do you prefer for flipping? I'm guessing there are only some which provide an easy and free service for transferring/pushing a domain to the buyer?

    Thanks.

    Most do it for free if you are pushing it to another account on their system

    I am not aware of a registrar that provides free transfers between different registrars..

    The charge will be on there side, besides if your flipping a site you should be making nice money to not even think about a small fee. If you do get charged add it as a fee on top of the website purchase.

    Personally I've used mainly NameCheap for the last 3-4 years and am very happy with them. Easy account transfers, comfortable admin panel to manage a larger portfolio of domains, great customer support and free whois protection.

    They're a reseller of eNom, though, so you can also go with any other eNom registrar and you'll probably get a similar experience.

    Stay away from GoDaddy.

    Trust me, you're an exception. And not a very demanding person, it seems :)

    I literally don't know anybody who has been with GoDaddy for a longer period and has had no (serious) issues. Neither do any of my closer acquaintances still use GoDaddy, unless they are forced to (I also have an account with them but only for receiving domain pushes).

    I could probably list around 20 reasons to not use GoDaddy off the top of my head but I don't think it's worth the effort as there's already countless of threads / pages about this and those who haven't listened before probably won't listen now. After all - everybody is free to make their own choices.

    Hi guys..

    Thanks for the prompt responses, however as I'm really new in this whole thing about websites and domains...
    what does really SOPA prevent us to do, at least what is the most "not logical" idea that prevent us to do in the world of internet.

    I did some google about SOPA for quite some time already, my understanding it is prohibits piracy the most and other copyrighted material including articles..
    and they could take your website down just as easy as flipping your hand.
    But when they take down your website, does it mean taking down the web hosting only? or both your webhosting as well as your domain?
    and it never stated how long does the authority will take down your webhost or domain if you were to violate or accidentally violate the SOPA terms.
    what if someone has paid and registered for a domain like 10years, and the authority take down the domain after 2 years or registration date... does that seems illogical that the owner will lose the rest 8years of $$$ paid registration fee for that domain ???

    Not bashing on godaddy but I was with them for a few years. If it wasn't for BAD Luck, I wouldn't have had any luck with them.

    Seriously, if you haven't had a bad experience with them, you are really one of the rare exceptions.

    Name.com is good if its after five days of registration don't know how NameCheap is with that but I've had great experiences with them as well as GoDaddy even though I didn't like them at one point because of their constant upsells. But they are the largest...
