Where's the best place to register a domain name?
Just looking for some advice. Any help is appreciated.

I recommend GoDaddy.com. They have very competitive prices, and the process is quite easy. They even e-mail you to let you know when verisign is going to try to fool you into switching registrars.

I would recommend www.php4hosting.com.
I register my domains from them and have found them to be quick and helpful.
One thing to look for is the hidden charges which some companies apply. php4hosting.com applies no charges should you wish to transfer the domain to hosting elsewhere this is however not the case with most companies in my experience.
In fact one of my domains was registered by another company and they will charge me £90 to transfer the domain should I want to host it elsewhere...
Hope that this helps.

I can recommend DirectNic, very easy domain manager.
Also, DO NOT use Netsol (VeriSign) they are the biggest bunch of a..holes. I had a client a while ago who had registered his domain with Netsol and it took me over three month of almost daily emails, phonecalls and faxes to get the domain transferred. They make it almost impossible to change nameservers etc.

Yes, I also recommend DirectNic.com I use them for my domains... Nice Easy to use... They just don't support Dynamic DNS if that's something you're looking for... But there is an alternative... ZoneEdit.com or another DNS hosting company.

I have been using registerfly.com lately. Very nice pricing (i think 9.95 per domain) and also a very nice user administration section written in PHP....

And you know I mean that.

I go with DirectNic.com
as mantas pointed out above, they have an excellent set of management tools. You will pay $15 per year vs. GoDaddy's $7, but they earn their $8 bucks if you ask me.

What was the need to bump a 7 year old thread. You can see this thread was started in 2002. Then It seems it is again forum rules to post affiliate links in forums.

name.com is better Ithink
where ever you register the 1st thing..its must not be a reseller..and must be the register from ICAN and you have to recive the domain control panel immediately..where you can manage the domain dns and eep and other options..then that wil be the best domain registrar company
If there is a need in hosting also, I can recommend you mmhosting.com which is offering free domain name within the hosting plan.
For just generic domain name go with Godaddy, they are very famous and professional in thi area.
For ccTLD I recommend using eurodns.com.

godaddy.com offers .com for 1$ only. Also, they are one of the biggest providers.
