    Hi guys,

    Just for the europeans (and I don' know if it applies to UK, I didn't check for UK Sterlings) :

    I just bought a new .COM domain on NameCheap as usual (with COUPON code) and right after that just find out that OVH is now cheaper for .COM (and I think for .NET also but not for .info).

    Namecheap : $9,28 = 7,42? included the fuck*ng new ICANN Fee
    OVH : 7,16? All taxes included

    It seems like they have a special deal and it's around 0,3? discount now, so not that much but if you have lots of domains to buy it's still worth it. OVH also seems to have WhoIsGuard but so far i never bought a domain at OVH.

    Cheers,

    PS : I just load $50 in my Namecheap account and the change gave me exactly ?40 so my calculation should be quite accurate.

    Seriously, OVH is pure shit for domains and shared hosting, their interface is just old, and their whois guard just mask the email and address, but not the name.

    They re ok for dedicated servers, that's it.

    If you want a good cheap registrar with free complete whoisguard for life, take a look at internet.bs

    Wow that's a BIG issue for the WhoIs protection !!! :eek:

    I don't know OVH personaly, I was just sharing what I find this morning as I was checking prices.

    I guess i'll stay with NameCheap and have a look at what you suggested.
