    Hi all

    Just curious which domain company is the best? The factors are lowest price and ease of use. I currently use crazydomains to host mine but people recommend GoDaddy. Is it good? What is your preference?

    Internetbs.net is the best and only domain provider I will use. They actually will try to protect your rights instead of letting every single "watch dog" agency bully them into shutting down your domain without any court order or legal standing. Screw Enom and please be aware hostgator partners with Enom so if you register through hostgator you can be screwed.

    DO NOT GO WITH GODADDY whatever you do. They will hold your domain for ransom if ever you want to transfer and buying a domain from them or doing anything is like navigating through a maze of opt-ins and up sells. Many more reasons, so yeh fuck godaddy.

    i recommend namecheap

    someone said internet.bs they're good too

    I agree. Namecheap is one of the best options right now. I always buy my domains from them and never had an issue.

    I'll be sure to look into both GoDaddy and namecheap. Thank you for the advice!

    I used to like Godaddy, and always bought domains there... until one day, I received this:

    "> Thank you for being our valued customer. For your protection, as part of an ongoing effort to prevent the unauthorized usage of your payment method(s), the recent purchase activity on Account #xxxxxxxxx is currently being reviewed by our verification office. This precautionary step is taken as a security measure to defend you, our valued customer, from online predators and identity theft. Our goal is to reasonably ensure that the owner of the payment method has authorized the purchase(s). To complete this verification process, please log in to your account with us today.
    >
    > During the log in process, to verify the payment method's account holder has authorized usage of this payment method, our secure site will prompt you to upload a viewable, scanned copy of the payment method account holder's government-issued photo identification, such as a driver's license or passport. If we do not receive the requested documentation within the next 48 hours, your order(s) may be cancelled for your protection.
    >
    > Upon receipt and verification, we will notate your account that the necessary documentation to substantiate your account has been received. We thank you in advance for your cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
    >
    > Sincerely,
    > Verification Office"



    To which I responded:



    "
    Uh.

    First of all, I live in Europe, which means I won't be able to send you a "government-issued photo identification" that you can identificate. Even if I could, I wouldn't, I don't send my ID over the internet. Second, I used paypal as my payment method. My paypal account is a verified account. I don't think there is a need for me to send any kind of scanned photo or verification image to you at all, since that is proof enough that I'm the owner.

    Thank you for understanding."


    After one day, they sent me the following message: "
    Upon further review we have authorized this charge. We have removed the lock on your account and notated the completed verification. No further action is required at this time.

    We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to doing business with you. Please contact Customer Support if you need any assistance in the future."


    Come on, first of all they send me a nonsense verification bullshit that they come up with out of nowhere and for no reason (and after I had bought some domains from them), and then after just 1 mail from me in which I don't even send them anything, they act like nothing happens. Eventhough they removed the lock on my account, I never used godaddy again. Namecheap, on the other hand, has never assaulted me with nonsense mails like these.


    Plus, Godaddy's CEO kills elephants for fun.
