Do you offer domain registration (registrar) services?
ANSWER: No, we don’t. Unlike most shared web hosting companies who “resell” domains via other ICANN registrars, we have no interest in getting into the registrar business. Instead, we encourage our clients to keep their domains registered in a top-level ICANN registrar (not API/reseller) for best DNS speed and security. In addition, it may be best to use a registrar in your home country in case in legal issues arise, so that local courts have jurisdiction over disputes, or otherwise use a US-based registrar since the courts have a lot of legal precedence for dealing with internet domain related matters.
We currently recommend NameSilo exclusively.
If you receive an email from your “old” web host (or registrar) stating that your domain requires renewal, it’s possible that your domain is still “registered” with that web hosting company (e.g. Bluehost, HostMonster, etc). In that case, we recommend transferring your domain (usually free) to a top-level ICANN registrar such as NameSilo.
