    I need to move 100 names from Godaddy. I am so tired of having to use coupons and DDC that has doubled in price when I renew.

    What is the current best deal registrar that everyone is using?
    I did find cloudflare is cheap, but not all tld and I wonder...?
    Dynadot is 7.99 to transfer w coupon but 8.99 a year to renew.
    Name was more $

    Who is everyone using and if this has already been posted my apologies. Couldn’t find in a search.

    Thanks for reading.

    Send an email to Epik (customer support) and let them know how many names you want to move and ask them for their best pricing...you may be pleasantly surprised. The interface is designed with the serious domain investor in mind. Namesilo and Dynadot are registrars I use as well.

    • Congratulations on having so many domains


      The cost also depends on what your domain name extension is, different platforms have different prices

    Correct, we have never lost a customer name. We run a tight ship at Epik.com. For those who need peace of mind on that topic, check out DNProtect.com.

    I own and hold and never really check my portfolio. I did notice 2 of my 4L are missing and listed for sale. No clue when, didnt do research to see when DNS changed/ Any recourse?
    I did email support for priceing info.

    Don't transfer out all in one go. First test few top registrars.

    Dynadot for sure. Good tools and reliable. Everything works out of the box and support is amazingly hands on.

    i have started with NameCheap, actually i am happy with NameCheap yet i'm more happy with DynaDot :-D

    For me the reason i select Dynadot the best is accesibility... Because of my location(CN) most websites are blocked/slowed or double secured...

    I was tired of filling catcha with NameCheap

    Than when i register with Dynadot i only fill security code which is okay, keeps my mind fresh :)

    I can't even open Epik on desktop, but on the mobilephone it was fine. If i still didn't register with Epik here is the reason:

    I have tried to open both on Google chrome and Safari but it didn't load the main menu properly(for the last 4 week i have been trying). When i try with VPN it loads well yet I don't use VPN on my desktop so offen. Hope this screenshots will let them see and improve their servers in China.

    GoDaddy is very accessible and i love to use their most services except domain registration (first year is okay but next years are 😈 :$: )

    That's all

    Cheers,

    1. Sav
    2. Porkbun
    3. Dynadot
    I like dynadot interface, too bad the prices are not like those of SAV.

    I like Dynadot because you get bulk pricing for so much business, that you're not paying extra for, unlike ddc

    SAV is cheap but their backend is messed up. They cost me close to $200 in revenue past month.

    I've given them a try, don't mind to work with niche registrars like sav but I will never use them again.

    Porkbun is solid though. Good pricing as well.

    United Domains. Not the cheapest, but very good service and safety.

    What a great question. Does it have a proper answer? Not a simple one that I can figure out.

    You can whittle it down to, say, a top dozen or half dozen, depending upon which TLDs you hold. You'll need to expand that if you hold both global and country TLDs.

    If you're dealing on price alone you are accepting some big risks. But it's difficult to deal on price alone anyway because both the special offers and the listed prices vary rapidly depending upon what stance the top dozen or so registrars take when each reviews (they don't all review at the same time) and whether the registries have offers on, which are then passed down via the registrars. Then you have to plot these into your own renewal and purchasing calendar.

    I'm not saying individual registrars vary their prices daily. But among those top registrars one or two prices do change very often so it just seems like that. Each time I look one has just got cheaper than the one I bought from last time so I save myself the angst by sticking with one for the gTLDs now.

    You say a poll can't be accurate because GD are in the top 5. With respect, you're missing the fact that not everybody votes on price alone. To use poll results you have to filter according to your own preferences. At least the polls give you a list of providers to select from while you're still finding your way around.

    Getting in is fine. But be aware some make it a super annoying long tedious process if you ever choose to bulk transfer out for a better deal.

    To the point they have zero bulk out option.

    I suggest ask this

    I'm using mostly Epik and Dynadot. Both of them are for me on equal very high level. Their backends are very intuitive, they have good FAQ and their customer services are always on time with answers. I can only recommend.

    My current favorite registrars are
    Namecheap.com is the best. $7.28 reg for a new dot com (couponfcnc code)
    Dynadot $6.99 for a re reg dot coms
    Epik - good price for new org reg
