Re: Caution: Godaddy takes 10 minutes to register your IDN

Yeah I think there's a difference between a name showing as available and a name actually being available. Next time try registering with GoDaddy again and then quickly try to register the same domain somewhere else.

Re: Caution: Godaddy takes 10 minutes to register your IDN

Yea but they have one hundred sales pitches on the screen. Won't you think of the sales pitches? Why are you not registering extra services with them? How can you expect them to register your desired domain name if you won't buy some services from them?

Guys you know, everyone is saying how bad GoDaddy is but no one really has a reason behind it other then the ads. In my personal experience, I never had an issue with GoDaddy, their customer service is awesome, if you are VIP you get your own portfolio manager, deals are freekin cheap where else do you pay $1 per name?

Re: Caution: Godaddy takes 10 minutes to register your IDN

the images above are enough to never use them again and furthermore I can't stand their interface but I do like their commercials

another issue I have with them is that it takes up to 48 hours to update nameservers that arent' theirs, which is BS!

Re: Caution: Godaddy takes 10 minutes to register your IDN

One thing that is annoying me right now is I have a domain I'd like to move from GoDaddy to another registrar but it's "transfer locked until 4/22/2012" because I changed some contact information a few weeks ago.

And damn, seeing those pictures posted by mulligan makes me want to move all my domains away immediately and never do business with them again.

Re: Caution: Godaddy takes 10 minutes to register your IDN

So, who do you IDN pros recommend as the top choice?

I've already taken light flak at DBR for having a bunch of domains at GoDaddy.......LOL .

Here are my concerns with leaving GoDaddy (and, I'd like to) :

1. Security.

GoDaddy has DTVS (Domain Transfer Validation Service) which requires a phone call to me for every transfer out, and I must give them the correct pin over the phone. I've had three break-ins (that I am aware of) into my various registrar accounts over the years, and I use good passwords. One basically tricked my ISP into giving them access to my account and then changed the email and did a password request at my domain register. The other I suspect did the same. The one at BulkRegister I never figured out. I had one break-in at GoDaddy, one at BulkRegister, and one at NetworkSolutions, two of those being about ten years ago. I've had domains stolen I had to chase down. GoDaddy's DTVS has stopped that so far.

I like DynaDot and was considering moving to DynaDot but after speaking with them they don't seem to have the security I want.

2. Higher renewal prices elsewhere

3. I don't like eNom, Moniker, etc.... those that really have their fingers in the domain industry. I just don't trust them. I don't want domain investors managing my domains. GoDaddy, may... but who knows, may go public and if they don't run a somewhat clean ship it would show once they were under the investor's microscope.

4. Easy transfers between GD accounts means quicker cash flow which is good for any business. Plus, the public trusts the GoDaddy name, whether right or wrong. I'd imagine it helps with sales.

Considering the above, what is the best alternative registrar? I can't seem to find one.

Re: Caution: Godaddy takes 10 minutes to register your IDN

Regarding the issue of regging IDNs at GoDaddy, I can't get the interface to accept a IDN reg. It says the domains are not available to register, but actually are.

I've had to call in every time to do it. Even then the Executive Accounts reps had problems regging them. They tell me they are already registered until I point out they are not at Internic.net , then they have to do some unexplained rabbit trick to reg them.

Also, the language must be specified for each and every IDN reg. That's a pain.

Maybe there is a some kind of delay b/c of how they reg them???
