    I would keep all domains at one place, but some ccTLD are cheaper elsewhere. Uniregistry and Dynadot seems to have better renewal costs for some "premium" new gTLDs plus Dynadot is pretty neat.. Also NameJet works with eNom so, I hold some names at eNom. So there is always gonna be some spread.

    I’m consolidating from UNI to GD. Absolutely abysmal interface in comparison, and the pricing is worse. I’m doing it for the household name with buyers and the Afternic integration. Fingers crossed they’ll come to their senses and rebuild that monstrosity. Wouldn’t bet on it though.

    Interface is bad and buggy, but the Afternic sales cannot be beaten by any other platform. And of course, being the household name. I sold one name via BB that was with DD and the buyer just wanted the auth code :) with GD, it is always push out.

    Consolidating to Unireg also, mainly from Godaddy. I don't know how such a huge web based company has such an awful website / user experience. Managing domains there is a chore.

    I'm really impressed with Unireg's UX and customer service.

    They've attempted it very recently but made it even worse, I have to revert to the old style domain manager to get anything done. Their platform is built for everyday people that have 1-2 domains, not domain investors.

    I've been consolidated for many years. I also consolidate renewal months so I have the same amount of renewals due each month.

    had hundreds of names at enom and when they went from 9.98 to $14 moved all my personal names to dynadot. contacted a few other regs before moving and no one could match dynadot really happy with them hope they keep the prices where they are.

    I used both epik and unireg and epik has a bunch of tools that are better than unireg.
    I havent really heard anyone discuss unireg recently.
    epik .com $8.49
    unireg .com $10.88
    $2.39 per name....100 names equals $239 per year in extra cost
    @AbdulBasit.com do you really have to ask this question?

    I can't see any advantage there
    I do not like the interface
    they are more expensive

    I was planning to pay for renewals
    from their parling income
    and affiliate commission

    but that is not going to happen
    as they didn't pay the way I planned for

    they have this $100 USD minimum payout
    and sometimes they have "chargesbacks"
    from google that is not obvious to me

    overall
    after 77 sale leads and no sales

    I really don't feel comfortable with uniregistry

    Yes, I wanted to ask because you need to contact Uniregistry support and provide them the number of domains you're planning to move there and they give you good discount.

    I was told not to disclose what price I'm getting but what I can say is they'll give you very close price to what Epik offers you currently.

    Thanks for sharing your experience.
    If you ever plan to try them again, you just need to contact Uniregistry support and provide them the number of domains you're planning to move there and they'll give you good discount.

    I personally like their interface which is great and super quick. Easy to manage everything IMO.

    Yes thank you
    I did so

    My costs are below namesilos

    But a few cents saved
    Is not the main reason to
    Like a registrar

    If so I would go with godaddy I guess

    But to me that a real nightmare
    With GD
    If you own more then a handfull
    Domains
    The worst of all

    Fine if you're handregging and only holding there for a year, but Epik charges $35 for a .com renewal. Ouch!!.. Not a good place to move your portfolio.

    Since my currency is weak compared to the US dollar, slowly moving my domains to a registry that uses my currency!

    Should have done that long time ago, can't imagine how much money I would have saved by using my currency BUT then again..the more that I save, the more that I buy, the more that I buy (hopefuly not but) the more that I have to renew....

    The poll should have a third option - I've already consolidated. So neither of the two options work for me.

    I asked them for bulk on about 300 names when I was switching over from enom...this is what they offered
    "Based on your portfolio size I’m more than happy to extend out a bulk discount which will give you $9.17 on .coms, as well as reduced costs ton a wealth of other extensions. "

    even with their bulk price still higher than dynadot or epik....I also have never sold a name through them so to me I dont see much of a value or reason to even mention them....there is nothing different or special

    I was showing your $35 when I 1st clicked your link, but now I'm showing 8.49 for a .com renewal when I checked again.
    --------

    I'm moving much of what I have to Epik. One reason, regarding Epik's pricing:

    I sold a domain that I'd already transferred to Epik to someone who contacted me on it. We used Epik's escrow - which went very smooth/will use again. The price I sold the domain for was 1,500.00 US, and because I left the $ in my Epik account instead of withdrawing it - left it to pay for future domain purchases, transfers, renewals - the amount that went into my account ended up showing as being 1,773.35 US. Part of their Masterbucks program, I'm thinking, where if you pre-pay $ into your account, the price for .com drops to 8.10 US for any purchases/transfers/renewals that use those prepaid $.

    The renewals and transfers paid from those pre-paid $ still showed as being 8.49 in my account records, but because of the top up from Epik, were coming out as really costing 8.10.

    I currently use 5 registrars, although most are at 2. I expect to increasingly have my portfolio at Namecheap and Namesilo. I like both of them a lot in terms of features, user friendly and transparent interface, and excellent value for both registrations and renewals. In addition, they both have marketplaces that I like as an option for some domains. Depending on renewal prices, I may use another registrar for .ca renewals. Within the ngTLD space (about 80% of my holdings), I find that using only one registrar would not result in best prices.
