    Are you wondering who is the cheapest domain registrar such as GoDaddy or Moniker?

    I would say 1and1 is amongst the cheapest though also the trashiest of registrars.

    Godaddy $7.99 and Moniker $7.29 are the cheapest at the moment. Let us know if you find a registrar below those prices.

    Do not use 1 and 1 even if your life depends on it

    100% agreed for domain registration but their hosting has been good for me.

    Friend, nah...... I hate that; actually I find it egregiously shallow.....

    It's a GoDaddy reseller! Yuck! Why pay the reseller a cut when you can cut out the middle (spammy url dropping one off posting) man and deal direct?

    At $14.99 a year someone is taking the proverbial.

    As for 1&1 - I know folks who rate them and folks who don't. Personally speaking they're not for me.

    Whatever you do, one vital tip is to register your name from one company and host it elsewhere with another.

    That way your host can never hold your name to ransom on you and if your host goes down the pan your name isn't flushed with them.

    I found out that one the hard way with a .co.uk since then I dealt direct with Nominet then went all the way and became a tag holder.

    Hard lesson to learn, take it from me it hurt!

    Best hosting companies who I have personally used / use (I have tried a lot) -
    cyberwurx.com
    reflected.net
    mojohost.com

    Registrars pretty much all the same with no real benefits
    enom - expensive for mobi's
    moniker - meh
    godaddy - meh
    directi - meh

    I wish fabulous would allow people to register mobi's and i would be there in a heartbeat.

    I bought a .mobi URL from Namecheap "thinking that I needed one."

    After I saw m.facebook.com's mobi subdomain I thought If facebook doesn't need one why did I?

    xnynz.com are RESELLERS of the thieves at godaddy.com

    BEFORE I purchase/do business with online vultures 'now-a-days,' I type their name into ripoffreport.com's THIEF SEARCH ENGINE.

    Try 1and1.com AND godaddy.com for a SURPRISE!

    1and1.com and godaddy.com STOLE monies from me (amongst others like hostway.com et al) and they WILL PAY A THOUSAND-FOLD, if it's the last thing i do!

    I'm waiting-out the 1 year mobi URL to EXPIRE.

    Happy Holidays TO ALL & God Bless!

    I'm playing with this idea:

    1000-top-internet-thieves-and-scum-of-the-earth.info

    LOOK @ these thieves........
    ripoffreport.com/Search/godaddy_com.aspx
    godaddy_com
    Approximately 75 Reports Found
    Showing 1 - 15

    ripoffreport.com/Search/1and1_com.aspx
    1and1_com
    Approximately 21 Reports Found
    Showing 1 - 15

    If I'd known about ripoffreport.com I wouldn't have dealt with these thieves.

    .....aiming to show these links to AT LEAST 1 million PAIRS of eyeballs (hopefully MORE)!

    I don't mind paying a few extra dollars in order to get access to the enom api. I also like the way our company name comes up as the registrar on some reports.

    Others puke at the prices they charge but an email to sales gets a couple of bucks off listed prices sometimes.

    GoDaddy are cheap enough most of the time but the site pisses me off, every single corner is an upsell and that's if i'm lucky enough to be able to log in without having to ring the states and get the password reset.

    I take it you're part of the team at 1api / hexonet?
