    Hello,

    Do you guys know any very honest and good domain provider?
    No matter what it costs...

    Because I'm tired to use companies like godaddy, web4africa etc..
    At web4africa one of my domains was suspended and I don't know the reason though I contacted to support.:confused: This is very annoying :mad:

    Use name.com

    Pretty cool interface, No cluttery like Godaddy:mad:

    Price is perfect, using coupon codes comes around 8$ fro a .com

    Free whois privacy forever[You see that is the best:D]

    Widely accepted registrar.

    Free push available.
    Also provides DNS control, URL Forwarding
    Support is also good.
    What more are you looking for?
    In short a Perfect Registrar.

    Right.
    Name.com is the best.
    Btw, they are offering $5.99 registrations for new .com/.net domains (only today).

    By using name.com can I transfer my domains from another provider to name.com?

    And what about if domain is suspended now? Can I transfer is and get it to unsuspended?

    Try Namecheap and/or Dynadot - both of them are very honest IMHO :)

    I've used Godaddy since 3 years ago and have no problem with them so far... can you please share with us here your bad experience with Godaddy?

    I actually haven't bad experiences with Godaddy, but I have heard and read much them.
    As I said at my first post, my bad domain issue was with Web4Africa, who suspended my domain for unauthorized reason... And I have sent much support tickets and have not received any good reply yet :(

    That is why I want well known and honest domain provider now :)

    namecheap.com looks like good. I see that they also accept paypal payment method. I will try this one.

    not any BAD experience but the website is very very slow.. but Name.com is fast in loading and the prices are almost same and also they are providing FREE WHOIS!!

    Name.com is BEST!!;)

    You will find a good registrar eventually.

    Be wary of cheap domain names, though. Anything like $1.00 a domain is a scam, unless they are a large company. They will make a loss on domain names.

    Name.com Also accepts Paypal. Even Unverified ones.

    Namecheap is using cheap tatics by issung some coupon codes they say you will get Free Whois privacy for 1 year and free SSL Certificate on any domain purchase.

    Now tell me Would you pay for Whois Privacy aftre a year or use one which gives lifetime like name.com
    SSL certificate, Do you need it?:eek:

    Are you a webhosting company, Banking or any other company??

    SSL certificates can only be used on Dedicated servers.
    The innocent customers even don't know about this. And they think they would get an HTTPS site.

    This sucks.

    I use Mydomain.com, Moniker or Dotster and have been very happy with them over the last few years.
