Domain Name Registrar


[link to this post]
 
I currently have my Domain Name registered with my ISP (which is not ideal)

I want to register a new domain name, and have my eye on getting some of the really short .co.uk domain names when they come out in a couple of months.

So what I want is a good domain registrar.

Reliability is an absolute must, and price is a preferable.

I don't need web or email hosting services (I'll get them from a separate company when or if I do) what I need is control over DNS entries, DNS services, and the ability to register domain names etc.

What do the good people of think broadband advise?

Oh yes, support for DNS wildcards would be nice too, but not essential.

There's only going to be a couple of thousand of them, and I'll bet every one will become an auction as domain name companies and profit opportunists bid for all of the them. Individuals wanting them for use for legit sites will be elbowed out methinks.

you're probably right. But that doesn't invalidate my question, I still want a decent domain registar.

And I would appreciate the advice of the good folks of TBB

I use GoDaddy for my .com domains. Are you aware of any problems with them?

You mean apart from issuing insecure SSL certificates?

Or pulling a domain from the registrant for the most tentative of reasons, and then selling it on at a profit?

Or pulling a security site offline because of a complaint from Myspace?

No, I know of nothing wrong with godaddy.


Oh, and for those with an interest in animal welfare the CEO likes posting videos of himself shooting elephants too.
