Name.com, The New Contender

Name.com is a relative newcomer to the domain registrar world, and they’ve made a splash with their low prices. The question is, do they actually provide good service? I’ll say right off the bat that I think they are excellent, but not *quite* as good as GoDaddy. Their sales people and technical staff were fairly quick to reply to my questions, the odd time something didn’t work, but I did have problems with a few domains not forwarding properly, and this took longer than I would have liked to get corrected.

That issue aside, the staff were knowledgeable, the name servers are fairly quick to update, and the prices are dirt cheap, a bonus when you’re registering domains in bulk.

All though I wouldn’t choose Name.com over GoDaddy, I have no problem recommending them, and I imagine I’ll use them more in the future.
