Hello. I'm currently shopping for a domain name for my website (likely Tumblr... ). My budget for 1 year is < $30. After searching online for a good 2.5 hours and comparing various sites, I thought I would ask for your advice. Which registrar should I use?
Many people from various sites have advised against using Godaddy.com. I tried to enter a test domain to see how the checkout process worked on their site anyway; however, I was quite confused by the interface (I couldn't uncheck the webhosting box?). So, I went to Gandi.net from another site's recommendation. It appears to be user-friendly. I have also visited Name.com and Dreamhost.com.
I think Gandi.net may be the best option for me. Is there anything that I should know about registering a domain name before I make a purchase?
