Re: [PLUG] Domain Registrar Recommendations

I've used GoDaddy as well, and have been generally happy with them.  
They're very cheap and fully functional.  Their shared hosting 
occasionally takes 30 seconds to render a CMS page, but I guess that's 
what you get for like $4/month.

I used Register4Less for a domain once, at the suggestion of a friend 
who reads UserFriendly, and found out the hard way that they didn't 
offer DNS service (they do now I believe), so I used freedns.afraid.org 
and it worked out.  It was cheap (although it's Canadian, so my credit 
card charged me for currency conversion) and it worked without event.  I 
would have been annoyed at having to use two separate accounts but 
honestly I never touched that domain after the associated senior project 
was graded.
