I am approaching 11 years in the domain world and one thing I’ve found is that my favorite registrar has changed over time. When I first started I didn’t know anything about how to pick a registrar so I went with 1&1 who turned out to be a nightmare. Then I bounced around for a while until I landed at Go Daddy, then Uniregistry came out and IMHO changed the game in many ways.
That being said, today I still have most of my domains at Go Daddy but I’m a big fan of Uniregistry and could see myself likely splitting my portfolio between the two over time. What I really like about Uniregistry is that it’s a complete end-to-end solution that makes it easy for me to put up landing pages, list domains for sale, and register, renew, and manage domains all in one place.
At the same time, Go Daddy gets a ton of eyeballs at Go Daddy auctions and it’s a really easy to list domains you have registered with them there. I also am a big fan of Go Daddy’s DTVS (Domain Theft Verification System) it is one of the best ways to secure your domains.
So I’m split, I don’t have one answer to my question, I have two. Of course I’m always interested in what my readers think so now I’d love to hear from you. Who is your go-to registrar? I want to hear from you, comment and let your voice be heard!
