and payed to help get their logo removed from a guy who tattooed it as an advertise campaign. They also did a good job when they lost that female race car driver as a sponsor.

I was reading on GoogieHost blog that they want you to pay for WHOIS privacy, though which is just purely stupid, and I had to agree with the article.

Well I have always had mixed feelings about WHOIS guard. I have been a victim of so many online hacks and breaches my info is accessible everywhere.

Many registrars charge for whois obfuscation. However, GoDaddy charges $8-$9 or so per year in addition to an already steep $15 per year for a domain. Whereas, say, Namecheap, charges $10 for a .com and $3 for whois obfuscation. And NameSilo just charges $9 and includes stuff like whois obfuscation and e-mail forwarding for free.

I still like .com domain names the most, but I use also a lot of other extensions - .pro, .click, .xyz, .link, etc. Smile
Some of the new extensions are great as well as old good .com. Smile

I do particularly like .xyz. And 'link': for some reason that's growing on me now you mention it! Smile
Also, welcome to Hosters.cc!

I really like the .io extension (but maybe I'm biased because I got a really good domain name on a .io). I also like .me domains a lot.

Namecheap also gives WhoisGuard for free for the first year of registration.

I wonder how OVH can sell it for free then while others have to pay. I just registered with my host for ease of use because I'm kinda new to the domain malarky.

I'm surprised I'm the only one who likes *.co domains. There more fresh and simpler than *.com and doesn't necessarily mean a business.
However, let's not get this off-topic and bring back the intended discussion soon.

I don't like .co because it just feels like a .com knockoff. .com is just the most recognized and respected TLD and almost always the only reason I'd pick anything else is because the .com is already taken.

Uniregistry and NameSilo are the best IMHO. And both of them are offering the most affordable domain registration / renewal prices and whois protection for free. Smile
