Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View


Looking to register my own domain name and was looking for
recommendations as to how to do this properly and who I should look at
registering with (living in the UK.).

Also could someone please explain the process (or point me to a good
link) and any pitfalls I need to watch out for.

Many thanks for your time.

Make absolutely certain the email address you use will remain accessible
to you in the future...

I lost my email address (long story) and have been fighting all kinds
of automated "online frustration^H^H^H^H^Hhelp systems" to try and
fix the problem.

Avoid "melbourne it" services. (I had a bad experience with them)

Name servers aren't terribly complicated, dealing with the people behind
names servers are complicated.

I tried a "Mc. Donalds" registrar too.. cheap, but every time you ask
them a question they cut-n-paste an irrelevant response that doesn't
address my question.

You might pepper your potential registrar with questions first, just to see if
they respond or if you get a response from "Eddie the happy computer"

Domain names are frustrating things.
