I figured I'd try a new domain registrar other than godaddy since it seems they constantly jack up the prices. So I saw someone recommend 1&1 because it was cheap. Its true their domains are 5$ for the first year then 8$ after that. So its good in that sense. However, I guess the term, "you get what you pay for." is unfortunately true for this domain registrar. So once you register your domain they go out and buy the domain for you. So you'd think this would take maybe 1 hour MAX. Not for 1&1, it took about 2 days to actually be able to change the DNS settings. So I chance the DNS setting, normally with godaddy these changes take effect in 15 mins or less. Not for 1&1 it takes another 2 days for it to update. Meanwhile you have zero control over the domain. Your domain is registered and active but instead of being redirected to your host it sits online posting 1&1 parked domain ads. Don't use 1&1 if you want to use the domain immediately. Godaddy is better. If, however, you are buying a bunch of domains and aren't going to use them immediately then you can go with 1&1 and save alittle cash but don't except good service. Just a word to the wise!
