Best Domain Registration Companies

A domain name can be an extremely valuable asset, more so than you may realize. And having the right domain registrar is key.

Many people choose to purchase their domain names form the same hosting provider that hosts their website. In fact, hosting providers often time provide a discount to users who do. But many experts warn that this may be putting too many eggs in one basket.

The world of online business can be cutthroat, and not everyone plays by the rules. Suppose a competing company or website decides to contact your hosting provider and claim that you are stealing their content and that they are going to sue both you and the hosting provider. Or suppose someone spoofs your e-mail address and sends out thousands of spam e-mails that look to have come from you. Or suppose someone manages to hack your website and starts causing all sorts of trouble. Even if it isn't your fault, any one of these reasons may be enough for your hosting provider to decide to suspend or terminate your account. Now your website is dead in the water and who knows how long it will be until it is back up, or until you are able to transfer your domain.

Now, if you had registered your domain from a different company than you use for hosting, you'd be back online in a matter of minutes to hours (depending on DNS propagation). You'd simply purchase another hosting account, upload your site backups (please make sure you have everything backed up locally), contact your domain registration provider, and point your domain to your new web host. Crisis averted.

If you don't have control of your domain name, then the rest doesn't matter. Make sure you have selected a domain registration provider you can trust. To help you get started, here are the top ten domain registrars.

I like that they post their fixed prices! They don't ask for a dollar one year then jack it to thirty the next!

Most honest site, and friendly too
