I use godaddy discount club and have hundreds of domains there. I will be transferring another 300 there by years end.
Do I like their prices - not really
Are they better than the rest - nope
Does most everyone have a godaddy account - yup, bingo
For me I am forever transferring or pushing domains and I just find it terribly convenient to use godaddy. I pay a bit more for that convenience but it's worth it in time saved. I look at time as being my most valuable asset.
That said their two factor security is highly customizable and it gives me confidence my high value domains are secure.
Yes, we are on the Sedo and Afternic MLS. It is easy to cross-list your inventory in both places and also activate fast-transfer if you are pricing domains as buy now.
Hi Rob, is there a tutorial on the Epik site for listing Epik based names on Sedo and Afternic?
If you list Epik-registered domains to your account as buy now domains at Sedo or Afternic, you should get an automatic email confirmation from Epik where you can bulk approve your MLS listings. If you get stuck, PM me and will coach you along. Sedo and Afternic can help with bulk operations if this is for a portfolio.
How much per transferring of .com names to epik?Quick comments here on Epik security:
- We offer 2-factor SMS, Google Authenticator for 2-factor.
- We offer the option of managing an IP allow list, i.e. the specific IPs that are allowed to login.
- We offer free MaxLock, meaning that even if your account is compromised, domains don't leave.
- Privacy is also free which mitigates risk of identity theft and reduces spam and malware distribution.
As for transfers in and out, they are near instant. Other than the initial 60 days of a domain registration which ICANN regulates, domains are allowed to transfer in and out at Epik without excess friction.
For the record, we have yet to lose a customer domain.
I think the first question should be... why do you want to transfer away from GoDaddy? And second what do you like/dislike about GoDaddy (if not covered by the first question). Thirdly, maybe. What are you wanting to achieve by this move. It's very difficult to answer your question realistically without knowing these facts. There are a lot of good points about the registrars recommended so far. But it could be your best option is to just stay with GoDaddy.
