    What do you guys use?

    I've got 20'ish domains.. would love to have them all at once place, to manage renewals/DNS/etc altogether. My registrar is good, but each domain gets it's own "account" in their domain management system, sick of logging in and out of seperate domains to change shit.

    Bonus points if the recommended registrar has an iphone app to manage them :hsd:

    I'm pretty faithful to namecheap. Have a few on godaddy but those are ones I bought from other people and I haven't transferred over yet:dunno:

    I have close to 40 now:o

    Pretty sure they have an iphone app in the works. Not sure if it's complete yet or not though

    I noticed Godaddy has an iPhone app.. just no idea if they're good.

    Godaddy doesn't do .au either. Neither does Namecheap by the looks of things.

    Gotta love living in the butt-hole of the world ;)

    I have 600 or so domains with godaddy and like their manager. Their storefront can be annoying as hell with tons of upsells and crap but it's actually really easy to click through once you know how. Plus they ALWAYS have coupon codes to get renewals pretty cheap...unlike most of the other big names out there. A few bucks per domain may not matter much to some but it adds up fast when you start getting tons of domains to renew each year.

    Fabulous.com is also pretty decent as far as managing domains. I only have a couple hundred there but it's much easier, and even a bit cheaper, to renew domains there since they don't throw every upsell at you. Mostly a "parking" company but good for registering domains too.

    600 domains :eek:

    I have had multiple people recommend godaddy, might consider them or namecheap for my .com/.nets and keep my .au's with the local registrar.

    Yeah fully.. i've got 20-30 (always changes), and have issues.

    How many websites among those 600 domains? Is it like 50 domains to a site? Or do you literally manage hundreds of websites? :noes:

    That's what motivated this thread.. I just lost a bunch of domains because I missed the renewal emails.. now squatters have them.. so hoping to conglomerate all my domains into a single place, so that doesn't happen.

    I use godaddy also, the only one I missed the renewal notice on was the one I had at name cheap, I have probably 10 domains left, a few I will let go and planning on picking up 3 or 4 more this weekend

    but I now have a client that has almost 400 domains with sites on them and we are going to add probably 800 or so more within the next year or so, we have them all through godaddy too

    Your registrar is no good if they don't allow multiple domains in your account.

    I suggest Moniker - would never trust my domains with godaddy

    I probably have a total of around 800 domains...maybe 200 or so have "sites" on them. But I wouldn't say I "manage hundreds of websites" considering a majority of those sites are completely crap/junk that I don't know why I keep around lol.

    why wouldn't you trust godaddy? They aren't going anywhere.

    Too much to type and I don't feel like typing it out every time, but they're super shady with renewals/expirations/transfers/disputes and the last thing they care about is you holding on to your domain

    I also recommend godaddy. They make it easy to consolidate all your renewals so they occur on the same date, etc.
