    I am going to pick up a domain name here sometime soon in the future.

    I have looked at godaddy before but something about them just doesn't feel right, and I have heard a couple of stories of them just generally sucking.

    Does anyone have suggestions about a decent domain name registar?


    Also I might need an email/web host in the future so any of those would be great also.

    When you buy a domain through godaddy do they own the domain or you?

    I've heard good things about GoDaddy and about domainsatcost.com. Never used either myself though :dunno:

    I use GoDaddy for my domain.

    The only downside I have found about them is that their hosting is horridly overpriced. But you can get your own hosting, so...:hsd:

    You will own the domain. You can change your hosting to whoever you want its up to you. Just dont register through your hosting company.

    I actually think that I am going to go with 1and1. I have good things about them and they are also cheaper then godaddy.


    I don't know something just doesn't feel right about godaddy, maybe its all of their ads and how they try to get you to buy everything in anyway possible. :dunno:
