Where should you buy a domain name? (2020) | 7 Options Compared


Caren , Surrey, UK kayaker.co.uk – shocking! dont ever purchase this hosting – Just host used to be a very good reliable friendly helpful hosting company. in the last 12 months all this has gone down and got worse and worse. The emails keep going down, regularly, you can’t get hold of ‘billing’ unless its in working hours in the USA (we in the UK so very unhelpful) They dont understand english e.g.: me: I have no email and can’t reset my password as the email doesnt work #Justhost: sorry I can’t help you without a valid password me: I can’t reset it as I the emails are down Them: (sends me a link on their website to reset password via email being sent to me) me: this is useless as I dont have email! them: you will have to do this through the cpanel me: I dont have access to the cpanel as I can’t get in without the password them: you can do this with the billing team, but they not available for 4 hours me: wow great solution! No emails, no access to cpanel, no support. Great!

    If a domain you want to buy is available at a high price – Premium domain – and that price differs at different registrars, doesn't that ultimately have an impact on where you buy your domain from? For example, one registrar may have a higher annual renewal fee, but a lower initial domain price. Also, maybe Namecheap is called so because it offers the lowest prices for Premium domains, not necessarily annual renewal rates?

    So, I've had an inactive domain name purchased through GD and it expires next year. Can I transfer to a different company when it's time to renew?

    Is there a way that someone can tell if a domain name keeps being searched by different merchants? Someone bought the domain name I’ve wanted and is now trying to sell for $1000….

    NAMECHEAP has the worst customer service! I learned my lesson. Do not pay for a domain NAME for CHEAP. Pay for value. Buy from Porkbun or GoDaddy. I now learn from this nightmare, NAMECHEAP is (its in the name) CHEAP.

    Thank you! I was about to buy a domain from GoDaddy, as k don't know much about web building. After hearing your opinion, I did some more research and have now decided to stay away. Thanks!

    Hover has the best site, straight forward. Why expensive??? I see the same prices as namecheap and others.

    after net4india issue, there is nothing like best domain name Co.

    if Co. closes your domain names are lost, even icann cannot do anything… except for only 1 case, where you business name is same as your domain name, in that case,you are entitled to save just 1 domain name… do google about this issue learn and save your money friends

    why are 'premium sites' like 3000 dollars? If someone doesn't have the domain name then why the mark up?

    Hi Christian. Moving a domain from one registrar to another, how about DNS records and nameservers pointings? Thanks!

    I'm switching to Namecheap from Godaddy. Godaddy is supporting the LGBT community.
