I think 1&1 is cheaper and has good tools, but GoDaddy is better in terms of quality and customer support. Any input?
I've got a domain registered with GoDaddy. So far I don't have any problems with it. Kinda good price.
Almost all of the domain name registration, price is an issue, service is important
I haven't used or heard of 1&1, but I've found Godaddy to be excellent. The site is easy to navigate and they're extremely fast at changing nameservers.
I personally use both 1&1 and netfirms for my domains. 1&1 are well priced, but if you need full DNS control, they only give you 5 subdomains with a domain-only package. Netfirms are excellent - they offer full DNS control and $4.99 domains for the first year ($9.99 to renew) with free WHOIS privacy forever. I've not used GoDaddy, but I've heard good things about them - their WHOIS privacy services are very expensive though.
1&1 sucks. Why?
Because I heard that you can't transfer the domains to other user, or something like that.
I'm not sure what was, but al lot of people was selling their 1&1 domains, 'cause were almost useless.
I have used none, so I can't give an opinion, but I have seen the registration to all of them I for what I see NetFirms sounds as very good for the price.
They have great deals, buy one year get a year free at the moment. They offer a great service and their customer service is great.
Another really good domain site i use sometimes is namecheap. But my personal favorite is 1&1
I prefer Godaddy i can't tell anything wrong about them so far except those advertisements. My experience with 1&1 is not great. I'm Not happy with their customer support.
i too prefer namecheap
I would recommend Namecheap or Dynadot. namecheap has wonderful customer service and the site doesnt look like a billboard unlike godaddy..
I like 1&1
Its website is www.1and1.com for those who never hear of it
GoDaddy's prices are not very bad, and the best for you if you just want a domain name without WHOIS privacy, full DNS control, etc.
Thanks for all the good advice guys. After some shopping around, I went with NetFirms. (Free) WHOIS privacy is pretty important to me, since a family member was stalked by some very suspicious personalities who found her in the WHOIS db.
I use godaddy its been easy to use and i haven't had any problems yet, i'll see what happens when i have to renew my domain before i comment on them to much. but it sees fine i also use namecheap buying a .co.uk domain from them was slightly cheaper but the setting are quite advanced and arnt easy to use the first time if your not used to making websites.
Always been a Godaddy customer so far.. never tried the other one... I probably should..
