    It adds reputation and credibility of the business you are dealing with when the owner/CEO of the company shows their characters and are involve in the community.
    It is better to have more details than no details at all.

    I also voted for Epik I like options/loans etc and lot of more. Great working parking at least for me. Cheap prices for com domains but 2 minuses for: reneval prices for some extensions are sick. And there is no way to withdraw cash from parking services. All other thinks work great for me.

    Good points there.

    Yesterday we appointed @Sufyan Alani to the role of VP Operations. His background is registry operations where he has done some notable work since coming on board.

    Looking ahead, our plan is to aggressively add direct accreditations. When we do that, we become a price leader because we have among the highest operating efficiency.

    As for the ability to redeem parking income, I think what we will do there is move the daily PPC accruals to be paid out to Masterbucks for persons with verified accounts. The key thing is mitigating click fraud.

    We'll share more details there on both developments but I think that is exactly the type of feedback that has helped us identify gaps and close gaps.

    You can expect some notable progress in the whole area of domain payments. Masterbucks 2.0 is not just an upgrade. It is intended as a platform for helping people to do more.

    Someone seems to have moved Epik's votes to Namesilo (hakcing?). I like both, Epik is my number one preference overall right now. Let me critisize each so they can become more perfect; I list a domain at Epik, and immediately visit it to see how it looks like, and it redirects to : bitmitigate.com/not-in-our-systems.html
    I can't cure it unless I use a different browser (if I don't visit it immediately, probably no such problem). Chromium can't be so wrong (cache?)
    And Namesilo's biggest mistake: Their new domain search is very bad. Previous version one was very good. Let me also praise both: Epik has a unique function: loans, so if you have some liquid domains, you can get loans (maybe nowadays they wouldn't give much). Namesilo's unique superiority(?): Easy dns templates they are helpful for sedo verification, and email forwarding. Namesilo's landing pages only work with nosubdomain and www subdomain, it can be cured but not easy to do so.

    The best registrars at the moment
    About the price, the level of security, and the ease of use I've ever met.
    Other registrars I see this side but on the other hand lose (on domain name)
