Domain name registrar suggestions?
« on: May 06, 2011, 12:03:01 PM »
I've had my domain names registered with namesure.com for many years, but their pricing doubled last fall and then jumped another $5 this month. I'm considering transferring to another domain name registrar and was hoping to glean some suggestions from satisfied clients here - as I'm sure many/most artists here have their own domains.

Any good suggestions?

Scott
It would help, for comparisons, if you say what you are paying per year now.

They went from a very good $7.95/yr to $8.95 (still good) to $14.95 last fall to $19.95/yr this month. (US $)
I have concerns that a pattern is forming. (I maintain a number of domain names - so it all adds up.)

Scott. This place often has deals on domain registration for the first year
www.doteasy.com
I use them.

Most domain registrations I see are around $20 or more a year now though.

Thanks Gents! I see Startlogic is $12.99/yr with no price break for multi-year payments
and DotEasy $25/yr down to $20/yr for 5 years. It's interesting to learn that $20/yr is average now.
Good food for thought (and my budget). It's important that you're happy with them. Thanks again...

godaddy.com offers .com transfer for $7.49, regular domain registrations are $11.99
Take care.
