In my last post I didn't really take the time to explain why I recommend Tucows / OpenSRS other than years of satisfaction (I've been using them since 2000). 1. They're conscientious. 2. They have a great API (although it's not necessary to use their API; they do have a reseller web interface for those who prefer not to use the API). 3. They are active, and proactive, within the professional Internet community so I feel a sense of affinity with the company. If you only want to register a few domains, it would be better to choose another registrar. Tucows is geared up for resellers. It is possible to save a dollar or two per domain with other registrars, but what's it worth? I anticipate staying with Tucows / OpenSRS indefinitely. ________________________________ Shane Miller President Call Centers 24x7 116 West Eighth Street Port Angeles, WA 98362 T 360.452.4527 F 360.452.5399 http://www.callcenters24x7.com Helping Small Businesses Compete Globally -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Jan Brasna Sent: Monday, December 26, 2005 3:48 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] I need a new registrar! > -1 for GoDaddy.
