Re: Domain Name Registrar

I would recommend Easily at http://easily.co.uk/
I have been with them for seven years and they haven't gone bust yet unlike many others!!
Also, have you thought of having a ".eu" domain name. Nice and short and lots available cheaply. Hope this helps.

Are there any large registrars who don't have similar complaints (apart from shooting elephants, all the rest shoot rhinos)?

None that have stuck in my mind quite so much as godaddy.


But that is why I am asking for the experiance of others, and why I asked BatBoy if he was serious (That and I have seen him give advice of questionable validity before)

www.domainmonster.com

When Fasthosts (UKReg) had their password screw up some years ago now, that was the final straw. I moved everything away from UKReg. But to where? I hunted like crazy for a UK based company (so, no GoDaddy-ness for me) until I found DomainMonster. Very helpful company, based in Surrey, small, but definitely a big player that keeps its head below the water line (as most people I mention them to have never heard of them). They have a very functional control panel, and all the usual features you would need/expect. I host all my domains with them, bar one.

The one exception is a domain I moved away from them to www.joker.com instead - simply because, joker.com allow IPv6 glue records on name severs of a domain, whereas DomainMonster do not. DM also don't support AAAA records (and no indication from them of when that will change either), another downer for anyone who's an IPv6 fanatic.

Why Joker? Used them before, very slick system, comparable, if not better than GoDaddy, but without all the flash website images of pretty girls filling up your browser (you know, if I wanted to see that [censored], I'd go and visit the Sun website, and click on page 3).

Don't get me wrong, my last place of employment used GoDaddy for everything. I've used their portal, and it's all good, but I've read too many horror stories about what the company is, how it operates, and all that negative PR has made me dismiss them as a domain name registrar I would ever consider using (cheapest is not always best, but you've heard that many times before I'm sure).

So, in short, for me I use mostly DomainMonster, except for the IPv6 geekyness requirement on 1 domain, where I use joker.com instead.

My 2p worth.

Late to the thread but I can recommend http://register1.net
A docklands based registrar whom I have used for years.

1 click google apps mx records and full DNS control.

Utterly reliable host / registrar.

Sensible prices too.

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

I can vouch for Easily too. Been with them since 2001 without any problems.They used to use joker.com based in Holland to register high level domains I seem to remember but are now independent as far as I know.
I also use HeartInternet and have been very happy with them. They are a bit cheaper too.
