Which Domain Registrar?
Wondering which domain registrar you should use?
Go Daddy is one of the most popular domain registrars, and while I still continue to use Go Daddy for some things, I switched most of my domains over to www.Fabulous.com and here’s why.
Go Daddy raised its prices around 2005, and I privatize all my domains, so one domain was costing me almost $20. Fabulous came out with FREE privatization after years of refusing to even consider privatization, so I was happy and decided to move all my domains over there.
They also offer a tiered package, so the more domains you have with them, eventually the price drops. Not by much, but it’s something.
My only complaint about the company is that they are in Australia and they don’t offer phone support, but over the years I’ve made do with their e-mail support and since 2015, it has gotten much better.
You really shouldn’t need to contact your domain registrar more than once or twice a year once you get the hang of their interface.
They also improved any banking issues they had where I wasn’t able to use one of my credit cards. Now ALL of my credit cards work on their interface.
If price is important to you for your domain registration, than Fabulous is the place to go.
Another feature I like about their interface is you can add different DNS profiles to your account so when you add a new domain or transfer one, you just pick the profile you want your domain to point to instead of having to search for DNS numbers.
And one of THE most important features they have is notifying you several times when your domain is about to expire. With one terrible domain registrar I used back in the early 2000’s, they only notified me once and I lost hundreds of domains.
So you have two choices when it comes to domain registrars.
Let me know if you have any questions.
