"...but this domain name is registered at register.com until 2014, so I don't want to make them pay to move it over." Just so you know, a domain isnt registered for some amount of time TO a particular registrar itself. Its registered with the dot-com registry via the registrar (in this case Register.com). If you move the domain over to another registrar, it will keep its 2014 registration date. In fact, I believe Godaddy will add 1 year to your registration date (2015) if you transfer to them and I think the transfer cost is 6.99 or something. Also, godaddy allows for dedicated IP addresses and complete DNS control. I have a couple of site hosted with them.
