I was just browsing the "Where Can I Buy a Domain Name" thread and I was really surprised by all of the GoDaddy
recommendations. We used to use them, but their interface for managing domains is so clunky and busy and slow, that we just had to switch.
We switched to namecheap a few years ago and haven't looked back. Namecheap is faster, more intuitive, cheaper (they include free Whoisguard for the 1st year), and has more free features like e-mail forwarding and advanced DNS record types.
Oh, and if you host more than 50 domains with them you get a discount on new domain purchases and renewals.
Just a recommendation - the bottom line is that there are more than a few good alternative registrars out there besides Network Solutions and GoDaddy
. Don't think you're trapped into only a few choices when it comes to domains.
