    Im wondering does anyone know of a good place to buy domains. I have got a couple complaints saying i used the domains for the wrong purpose. Is there a company overseas or a company that doesnt care much about complaints?

    I purchase a lot of domains through 1and1.com. They are very cheap and they have never once complained....even when "cease and desist" orders from trademark holders are sent through them to me. :)

    Cancelling the domain is a bit of a pain in the ass but private registrations are free so it is well worth the $7 per domain.

    Well I can't speak for them but if it is basic link spamming you are asking about, I have had no issues with spamming my links and keeping my domain names. That being said, if you are going nuts and causing major headaches for website owners or engaging in illegal activity, they could potentially take action.

    I have heard a lot of horror stories about GoDaddy and this problem so you may want to stay away from them. It is hard to do though when the .info's are so cheap right now.

    I buy domains on a very regular basis.

    My preferences are:
    namecheap >>> great customer service , fair pricing, easy to navigate interface

    1and1 >>> great pricing, customer service is hit and miss and I don't like the auto renewal , free anonymous whois

    ipower.com >>> pricing, easy interface

    Go daddy is the absolute worst place to buy domains. If I wanted to screw you I could easily find out your domain was registered through godaddy and have a bunch of friends around the country claim you spammed us. They'll revoke your domain just like that.

    For offshore domain name registration you can use katzglobal.com

    Yes I absolutely agree I think anonymous and offshore domain is the way to go. Any other solid bullet proof domain companies?

    Godaddy is not bad.
    But I wouldn't register very rare domain with them. However, they are cheap and good for 'normal' domains.

    Ipower is slow as hell. It takes two days for them to process the domains which they get from tucows

    Namecheap is the fastest for me. I can register them and have them already pointing to my hosting nameservers and they work IMMEDIATELY.

    Godaddy is only good if you plan on reselling your domain to a n00b or a sucker in the near future because they all think Godaddy is the shit.

    Godaddy sucks - for a lot of reasons.
    ESTdomains is popular with spammers, phishers and thieves.
    Moniker is SOLID and the safest place to keep your most valuable domains, they will work out custom deals for bulk transfers too ;)
