Tips and Hints

Where should I register my domain name?

This seems like a simple question, but it’s actually quite complex. I have more than 200 domain names sprinkled among several domain name providers, and there’s definitely a difference in DNS query speed, update time and level of support.

I have found that for speed of update and quck DNS resolution, GoDaddy is the best place to go. There are cheaper, but you get what you pay for. I have heard grumblings about GoDaddy lately, but I’ve had no problems with them.

I liked GoDaddy so much I set up my own domain registrar using their service. The update speed is just about the same, and you get to bother me if you sign up with DotYesDomains / NetResource.

Yahoo also offers free domain name registration with their hosting packages. They had a great $2.00 domain registration special too, even though I never got around to trying it.
