If you start to play the webmastering game, you’ll find that you will register tens, even hundreds of domains. What’s the best place and register your domains? What should be avoided?
I personally think that godaddy is the best place for domain name registration. It’s cheap, fast, and secure. There’s a reason why godaddy is number 1 in the domain department.
I purchased my first domain on network solutions. I don’t like them that much. And i forgot what happen to that first domain. I guess i just let it expire and never check on it. A few years ago, i started another website and got the hosting and domain on Yahoo. That was a terrible mistake. I guess i did it cause i was a complete noob. It was hard to move my domain over from yahoo, and i later found out that they outsource their domain registration. What a waste of time and money.
Now, all of my 100 plus domains are on godaddy. I think it’s good to keep all of your domains on one registrar. It makes it easy to manage and you don’t ever have to fuss with moving them from registrar to registrar. And since they are the biggest, more then likely, you’ll have to deal with godaddy sooner or later. Might as well make it sooner.
When you set up your blog with shared hosting, the host will usually register your domain for free. It’s cool and all, but don’t get trapped by the free domain. Don’t register your main domain with that hosting plan. Just get a generic domain. Get your main domain names on godaddy.
