My domain name registration is soon to expire unless I renew, and currently I'm with "Verisign and/or Network Solutions". They want to charge $25. per year for 3 years. Anybody know of a better deal out there?<br><br>

Whatever you do, do it before it expires, cause once it does, it's a royal pain in the arse to get it back!<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

Thanks iraszl, I checked with namezero, but they don't transfer existing domain names and referred me to "mydomain.com". I'm looking into it.<br><br>

I just renewed through verisign (after it expired) and they were as helpful as they could be. I like the fact that with them, I have full control over my domain name. When I was with Valueweb as my web host, they registered my domain, and when I switched to another host, they never released my domain, so it was a real pain in the neck getting my domain name to point to the servers at my new web host.<br><br>Now, I can tell it to point to any web host I want, including my own computer's IP address (only for folks with a static IP address - which I don't have, but I tried it anyway).<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

I use register.com - around the same prices, but you get DNS service included. I would check to make sure if the low priced registars have the same level of service as you current one.<br><br>

i use <a href="http://tigertech.net/">tigertech</a>. they do my webhosting and domain registration (in my name), but you can choose the domain registration only ($20 per year).<br><br>the nice thing about allowing them to host is that the 4.95 each month includes the domain registration fee each year. i am going well over the 20 MB limit and it is just costing me pennies more than the $4.95 (i think i paid $5.04 last month for 30 some MB, but don't quote me). i think i went over the 500 MB of data transfer one month and they didn't charge me anything extra, but just gave me a warning.<br><br>very responsive (i've had them for about 3 or 4 years now) and will do special things to accommodate me (e.g., i had some problems with a flash movie i made sending me the data via email and tigertech made a special mail server something or other for me to use (it's been a while, forgive me for forgetting -- it was only a problem when coming from a macintosh and tigertech was able to tell me what i needed to tell macromedia to help them improve their product, too).<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>

Thanks Bambam, I was able to access a site through Cheap domain, and found 100 best web hosting which had links to the top ten web hosting sites. Now I can research some additional hosting sites and narrow down my choices.<br><br>

Sure no problem, I think I will be going with iPowerWeb, they seem pretty reasonable and the key for me is that they are local in my area.<br><br>

That sound great! Is your registrar still Verisign, or did you transfer your name as well?<br><br>

No, I kept my registrar with Verisign so that I have full control over it at all times. But, if you transfer the registrar to iPowerWeb, they will add a year of domain name registration to whatever is remaining already.<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

i've been using directnic.com for over 3 years without complaint. they charge only $15 per year registration and renewal, and only $50 for .tv domains. they have superb admin tools for the likes of domain parking, email forwarding, etc.<br><br>

I couldn't get the the link you provided , but I managed to find them online. They look pretty good, I'm going to give iPowerWeb a try mainly due to the reviews they received and their locale being close to me.<br><br>

I might do the switch to iPowerWeb too, they offer a much better package than the one I have now with my current host. I'm just going over the migration steps with them now..<br><br><br>http://waleedsgallery.biz

people talking about iPowerWeb remind me of <a href="http://www.powweb.com">PowWeb.com</a>. Does anybody know anything about their reliability or customer service? They offer almost exactly what I get with Verio for 1/3 the cost. I've been eyeing them for a while but am always wary about the longevity of smaller, less-stable companies.<br><br>

No. iPowerweb is my web host. My domain is registered through NetworkSolutions. Having my domain registered through NetworkSolutions, it allows me full control over the DNS setup. That way, if I switch web hosts, I can change the DNS numbers myself without all the trouble of trying to get a company I don't even have an account with anymore to transfer it for me.<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

I'm gonna look into this myself. I'm really cheesed off by what happened the last few days with my web site, and I think I'm getting ripped off as far as how much storage I'm getting for MORE than this iPowerweb costs...<br><br>My domain is with register.com, but I'm not sure I have control over the DNS setup...I'm going to look right now...<br><br>Hold on....<br><br>Yup, I do.

pulling up an old thread when there are more recent discussions about the topic just seems very spam-like from a poster with 1 post.

that being said, it's funny to see where we were back in 2003. i remember switching to iPowerweb based on Gizmo's recommendation. it was fine for a while, but it went downhill rather quickly. i now use bluehost for my domain registration and hosting needs. i keep a identical backup of all my class website stuff (e.g., Moodle, phpbb class discussions, Wordpress) on another backup domain using http://www.lunarpages.com/; however, i probably wouldn't go with lunarpages again if i was jumping in right now. bluehost has been just fine.

Good morning all,

Just thought you should know that MacTech has a deal with the parent company of GoDaddy to do http://mactechdomains.com . We've been doing this for many years now.

Lower prices than GoDaddy, but the same offerings. Their support is solid, and we have all of our domains registered there. Now, we believe that providing value is paramount with this, and obviously, at these prices we don't make money on domain registration. It's another service to our customers and readers.

There's bundle deals that put the domains at $1.99 each. Without the bundle they are $8.75. DNS, parking, and a slew of other services.

Having worked with other registrars to transfer domains to our account, I cannot imagine wanting to deal with any other domain that offers lesser service at a higher price, but I leave that to you.

http://www.mactechdomains.com/

Hope that helps.
Neil

Hi Neil,

I have a particular domain name in mind for my upcoming Web site which I could be interested in registering with you guys... a search tells me that .com and .co.uk are taken and the nearest I can get to it is .org.uk. You say that 'org' is popular with charitable organisations... my question is can I use such a domain name with a commercial objective?

There's no legal requirement attached to using .org or .org.uk domain names. They're 'intended' for non-profit-making organizations, but available for general use. I would say it just needs to be obvious on your website that you're a business. And obviously:

"If you are based in the UK and run a business web site to sell or promote your products or services then make sure that you are meeting your legal obligations.

Note that as long as your business is physically based in the UK then UK laws will usually apply - even if your web site is hosted in another country."


If it's brokenless, don't suffix it...

Thanks, I gave up trying to register the domain because it didn't recognise my email address... what a joke, everyone else is using it. laugh
