    Agree. It's not an unreasonable measure. Extra security usually results in some added inconvenience so it's all about what you care for the most.

    This day and age some extra protection can't hurt. I'm waiting for you guys to enable fingerprint and face recognition authentication ;)

    Epik.com with second option being dynadot.com.


    Epik for their solid pricing, excellent customer service and having a marketplace.

    Dynadot for their pricing, good customer service, marketplace (only paypal payout if balance is $500), can list only dynadot registered domains.

    They changed that policy recently. They lowered it or waived this limit entirely. If you search for it, there's a thread where someone complained about this and they ultimately worked with the feeeback and changed the payout rules.

    They should provide more payout options. Like ACH and wire.

    I would recommend Google Domains, they're secure, quick...

    I registered a domain with them using Auth code and the domains was in my account after an hour...

    If you use Google domains, you have the security, speed, reliability and everything...

    Idk if it's automated or not but Rob PMed me and said it should be on my account, and I did check and it was. It's possible he manually added it first but the way he made it sounds is that it is automated because he was asking me if I had any problems with that on my account.

    But add that to the list of things to like about Epik, I mean no other company I've dealt with do I get emails/PMs directly from the CEO. I mean I realize as Epik grows that won't scale well but he has built up a great team to where in almost all cases I feel confident that the team can handle in and in those rare cases for something extreme happens, I suspect he will continue to be available as needed.

    The thing I really liked about epik.com is that they have many options for payout, much more than anyone else, PayPal, ACH, Wire, Bitcoins as well as TransferWise. Plus 9% commission on sales is much better than those of GoDaddy (20% and limited payout options).

    We got @turbo funk upgraded to domains at cost. It turns out, he did great -- lots of promo .coms as low as $5.49 when we did a really crazy promo last summer. The big savings with NP pricing is on renewals. So, he got NP pricing just in time because he joined in August 2019 and his renewals were coming up. All is well.

    They support it.
    Directly in Porkbun panel, not via emails.

    GoDaddy & Dynadot, best registrars in the business.

    You'll be OK with both.

    imo

    Good man ;) since you asked about renewals I took it for you not being a customer. Renewals are currently at $8.49 I think, for namepros members.

    - Commission-free escrow for domains on Epik for wire/BTC buyers
    - Free domain swaps
    - Free portfolio review
    - Help with closing deals (time-permitting!)

    If you contact Rob he will remove lock on the domain I had him once so I could give auth code out on a locked domain

    While epik is nice it sometimes pays to use a more reliable register such as namesilo or godaddy, few end-users want a domain at epik
