Dynadot allows you to approve Afternic Fast Transfer via 1-click in the dashboard. 👍🏽

This is soooo much easier than email links which can break.

Great pricing for Bulk and Super Bulk with good support.
I'm curious, though that any approval is required. With GoDaddy/Afternic, the Fast Transfer didn't require any approvals to be clicked after receiving an offer. So Dynadot requires this additional step?
And note that I'm not voting yet. My best registrar will probably be the one that helps make the sales happen!

Is there a marketplace/registrar where HNS "domains" (.1, .c etc,) can be sold besides Porkbun ? I mean a marketplace allowing registrar change using authcode. I don't like Porkbun's marketplace because it requires some phone verification, and also, I think payout happens only via paypal.

Does Namecheap allow you to resell HNS names?

AE server is also among LEAST favorite. why, because; last year, I tried to register a domain, and they requested id etc, and I didn't /wouldn't give id/local business registration info etc. So it was cancelled/refunded before registration. This year, they said they will AUTORENEW for the domain, which doesnt even exist. Invoice cancelled for this year, not sure, what they will do next year. Their customer service is kind and fast to fix problems, but such a problem shouldnt have existed.

Roughly 20 years and GoDaddy is still my #1 go to. Support has always been top notch for me. (Loyal customer).

Epik switches between being the best and being the worst. Currently the worst, because you can't register any domains, and they are aware of the bug, but can't fix it for days, and also they fail to refund for failed registrations , sometimes, for a long time, despite repeated requests. They also say, renewals not working. They are religious but they enjoy gambling with our money (cryptos) and burn it. I was thinking religions were against gambling. (Aftermarket buyers don't need to worry about such stuff).

My all time favorite used to be GoDaddy and still partly is, but transfered over most domains to NameCheap. PS I also like Dynadot.

Self replying, looks like all those problems have been fixed. Hopefully permanently.

Registrations fail again, or too slow at Epik. Healthy version lasted one day, or maybe less. Everytime they say they fixed the problem, and it is never a permanent fix. They can't admit they are out of cash. Once they find cash, they say technical problem fixed. What kind of problem. We need to know details.

This is how you do this poll ,,end of the year ,NOT like some other Poll a few years ago held in March and where even the wives of emloyees AND personal "prayers "voted.
ps I could attach a screenshot about wives voting but I want to be fair.
You may also see the new CEO of epik 's linkedin page before you vote.
