Seen as a similar theme in the blog at Dima, I once helped a lot. Recommendations – it is generally a useful thing, especially when so many offers from third-party companies. So I decided to make its modest contribution to the process and talk about where I register domains for their projects. To begin with some nuances and useful tips.
Firstly, it should be noted that many web hosting companies offer free domain if you pay your hosting service for an extended period. This is, in principle, useful and very convenient, but there is a small catch. It is necessary to ask how much it will cost you a domain renewal already own at the end of the free period – sometimes this amount indicated very high.
In addition, it is necessary to clarify to whom is the Domain. In the case of direct purchase of its registrar now all basically draw up a domain user, but you can sometimes find hosts other conditions – when they draw up a domain for yourself or give it to you over after a certain period. In general, you need to carefully specify all the details of the so-called “free”.
In most cases, I would recommend to register domain alone, but sometimes hosters offer very good conditions + control panel that allows you to conveniently work with both hosting and a domain. Actually, the two hosts, whose services I currently active use (HostPro, Hostenko and FastVPS), there are such opportunities. But these are isolated cases and the best one I believe to keep separate domains and hosting.
Despite the fact that there are common for webmasters rule “does not keep all your eggs in one basket”, I think it is more convenient to manage domains from one panel rather than use the services of 5-7 companies. That is why I am in search of an optimal solution, but rather good offices for this purpose. And try to be guided by the principle of geographical, ie want (and trying) to find yourself 3 companies, wherever kept separately Ukrainian (com.ua), Russian (ru) and English (com, net) domains. Now I have to accept such office, but I’m working a relatively short period of time, and therefore wrote that like as I am in “creative search.” So, now a little more specific registrant.
