    Anyone used it? I've bought several domains with it and it's pretty good. You also get whoguard privacy for free for a total of 8.99. The downside is that they only do domains and I thought I was being slick by getting the domain there and then getting email hosting from another but it's brought a lot of trouble because the DNS is giving me trouble when it comes to activating it.

    I used Namesilo and I like it. I don't understand your downside much. All you need to do is change the DNS of the domain to the host and you pretty much can do anything with it then (add DNS record, etc)

    same, namesilo is good. if you having trouble with dns, you can look at youtube for tutorial. it is good to seperate webhosting and domain. if web host banned your account or you get hacked, you still have your domain.

    NS is $8.99 to reg. or $8.39 to transfer .com. The key is they have free whois privacy for life.

    Right and it still didn't activate. Not to mention Namecheap was giving me two different sets of info to add on the DNS.

    Have been looking for a supplemental domain registrar. NameSilo may be it.
