And you keep control over it smile Mark pointed this one out to me:

Sounds like a great deal, anyone with experience with them?

I registered one at Go Daddy recently...
Had quite some problems with their buggy interface (account management), but other than that, I can't complain.

I've got several with GoDaddy. As Idle said, their account management is a little off-kilter, but at least they're cheap.

As a side-note, I was unable to transfer Se7enet, which was originally registered with Dotster, to Godaddy when it expired in May. I had everything set up just the way they wanted me to, but the only thing that happened was I'd get an email every couple days saying I needed to change the administrative email on the Dotster account - which was already set up correctly anyway. So transferring didn't work for me.

Always use them.

And LD, that price is only for .us and .info domains on that site chuck mentioned.

Greg scroll down a bit and you should see a "$7.95 click here to register image." This is what is near it:

Who's your Daddy now? Stargate now offers .com, .net and .org transfers, with all the great features of a registration for the ridiculously low price of $7.95. So what are you waiting for?! Just fill in your information and we'll do it all for you!

And so I think it's the others too. If I'm not wrong..

The one I bought from them ended up in their name, so I don't really recommend getting from them. That may have changed it since then though, last time I ordered from them was June, 2001.

I have 2 from directnic.com. $15 a piece/year. I like it for the account features. Never had any problems with them.

I haven't heard anything specifically about GoDaddy but read their Terms of Service and the Agreement very carefully!

Some of these discount registrars are notorious for registering the domain cheaply as part of scam. It turned out that agreement granted them ownership of all domains registered and they can never be transfer from them to another register.

The registrar would then intentionally go bust and sell it's assets (including all the domains they registered) to someone tied to them for next to nothing. Then that new company would attempt to sell all the domains to the registrar for thousands of dollars.

Godaddy isn't like that, Steve. I have several domains with them and I read everything (infact in some cases my lawyer reads it too).

My lawyer has a domain with them too, i think.

I used DNbuy for 3 of my domains, and I've been happy with them so far.

Like I said, I haven't heard anything about them. It's good to know they're safe. smile
