    hi guys

    i have a few autoblogs up and running and i have purchased all of my .info domains from godaddy as i found them to be the cheapest. i am not satisfied with their customer support however. i was wondering if you guys could give me some advise on where i could get some cheap $1.99 .info domains. i know that there are plenty of options out there but i am more concerned with customer support at this time.

    thanks in advance for any help:)

    Not sure why you would require much support from GoDaddy if you're only buying domains to be honest....all you have to do is change the nameservers which is fairly straight forward.

    I did recently buy a batch of domains from them as they were offering free privacy also and had no problems with the process.

    Just make sure you don't host there as they don't have cpanel.

    A lot of memebers recommend namecheap, as MickeyMe has done above.

    thanks for the reply guys.

    i do all my hosting via hostmonster and so far i am happy with them.
    i had an issue with my account at godaddy recently and it took them 2 weeks to sort it out even with me emailing them every single day for a status up date. we all know that 2 weeks downtime is unacceptable and that i could have made a lot of cash in that period had my sites been up...

    i am looking into namecheap at the moment, it looks quite promising...

    +1 for Namecheap.

    Their systems/interface is so much easier to navigate around than GoDaddy. They are also offering free whois guard at the moment, and don't automatically opt you in to auto renewals etc.

    I use Namecheap personally, and have for years. $2.99 .info's at the moment, with free whoisguard (private registration).

    agreeden, and frankly with GD you get a bit of security through obscurity - they have so many domains under management, a lot "falls through the cracks" there....just my two loonies...

    Usually buy from GoDaddy as they generally seem to be the cheapest but then usually transfer on renewal to Namecheap.

    I've used godaddy when they had the promo on, then when it's almost a year I transfer them all to name.com, they have free privacy.

    Your often better off sticking with the main ones to avoid any problems further down the line for the sake of a few $ in my opinion. Usually the main ones have some sort of promotional offers all the time.

    I use godaddy, myself. When my husband and I worked there we bought a reseller account so I usually get domains at a pretty decent price. I don't buy them that often, though.

    godaddy, buy 5 at a time and you get free privacy. for the price of 1 namecheap, you get 3 at godaddy, might as well add 2 more and get free privacy on all of them. their domain manager sucks though. as long as you host somewhere else, you dont have to bother with them too much.

    I like them too because of that. Just be careful if you run your own DNS servers. You need to set up your zone files prior to pointing the domain to your DNS servers on their control panel. The rDNS to your DNS servers must be properly setup as well prior to that. Otherwise your domain status could get locked up in their control panel and it would take weeks and multiple phone calls to get them to fix it.
