Domain registrars compared
Google has entered the domain-registry field in a move that many have called a game-changer. Here’s a look at their service and how it stacks up against other domain registrars. To make things a little easier, I’ve decided to compare simple domain registration of a dot-com domain across the board.
Please realize that certain add-ons — like keeping your registration information private — is considered optional by some registrars, and it comes at an extra cost. Since you’re required to give personal information such as your address and phone number, I like to keep that information guarded from a simple “WhoIs” search. But, for most registrars, that’s an additional cost. Likewise for services such as e-mail forwarding and domain forwarding.
Also, although many of these companies offer hosting, too, I’m not including those figures. It’s my opinion that you can often find much better deals if you shop for these two services separately.
