Thought of buying a domain at Porkbun today and this was the hardest ever registration in my life. Took almost half an hour to get one domain registered. Why?

1- Their website is slow as a snail. And they sell web hosting?
2- Wait 1min for anything to happen once you click on a button
3- Payment timed out multiple times because of their slow website. Payment gateway couldn't connect to Porkbun site once the payment is done. So you either wait for a refund or make another payment.

What's your experience with them?

LOL

PB one of best 8.56 .com, usually lowest ngtld but i dont have one ngTLD. Porkbun is my #3.

My only complaint wit them, has and is; name.

Also Porkbun has zero NP reps on Namepros. Even for small company, that’s alarming. They dont have aftermarket, or are afternic partners, yet your PB complaints, dont match mine

I once had some issues adding a second creditcard. I got charged multiple times but their gateway rejected it. Payments auto refunded within a couple of days. No biggie.

I like them a lot. Find their backed easy to navigate. Pushes and transfers are fast. Updating domains is fast.

I like the fact that they email you when there's a login to your account including the connecting ip. Nice security feature.

I don't mind they lack aftermarket options, don't need it. From my latest sales about half moved to PB. Endusers seem to like them.

You maybe had a bad connection to their servers at the time.

Best registrar out there, no upsells, no spam, just go for what you need & done. They also carry almost every tld. Their UI is also the best, just click a domain & an easy to use dropdown appears, unlike other registrars that redirect to another page that takes seconds to load. I also like their humor & "easter eggs" they place around the site.

Their support can be slow at times because they're small. I only contacted them for questions not for problems so it's not a problem.

Oh & for their name. It's not even that bad compared to other registers... GoDaddy? That sounds pretty perverted.

Hey, we're here :) Just wanted to chime in and say that we're integrating with Afternic as we speak and building out an aftermarket marketplace as well.

I love how they don't take themselves too serious :)

I would say when I first registered with you guys, the payment issues was there and so far whenever I make a purchase of any sort, I pay with paypal and cant pay with CC. Dont know what is going on. Other than that , I like everything and good to know you have nice plans.

So far, I've had very good experience with them and pretty much none of the experience that you've mentioned.
That said, I did face difficulty once due to my tracker blocker.

Hey @SlackJawedYokel (err cute username I guess? :xf.grin: - love the sense of humour at your site!) great to see you involved at NamePros and that is fantastic that you are building a marketplace and that you are integrating with Afternic.

By integrating you mean a domain (in accepted TLDs) registered at Porkbun will be eligible for fast transfer and therefore premium network coverage at Afternic?

I love your prices, approach and service, and the only reason I never had that many names at your site was the lack of marketplace and lack of integration with either Sedo or Afternic premium networks. Now that is going to change, definitely will have more there.

This is the best news I have heard today! :xf.smile: Of course it is 8:17 AM here so lots of time for more good news!

Bob

PS You should not be so shy around NamePros. 9 posts since 2016, what is that about? :xf.eek: We are a nice bunch. Please drop by more often!
