So what service are folk using for domain registrations/admin/DNS/tools etc right now?

    Any advice on this folks?

    I've been using heartinternet for years for domains, but not a massive fan. GoDaddy, while shit, is cheap. Names.co.uk look ok but more expensive (it's only £3 but I have to pass on cost to client). DYN is massively overpriced...

    Namecheap has been solid for me for the last year or so.

    Ta. Namecheap are the cheapest of the lot. Control panel got an auto Google Apps thing?

    Dammit.

    Just bought it then remembered that Google domains are a thing. And they're only £6. FFS.

    Nah - that's via cpanel - i mean a quick go get for the MX records. I've sorted that.

    ah, sorry, I've never used Google Apps for business other than a quick test last year.

    Ooh, I've never heard of Google Domains before. They were checking out?

    Yeah. Fairly new. Obvious advantage is to dovetail into apps. A .com is only £6.00 too.

    I use Enom and webhost.UK.net for my domain management.

    I would't go anywhere near crimeflare - they knowingly allow criminals to use their protection services.

    I'd recommend checking out Porkbun.com, a relatively new registrar. A .com domain costs about £7 but they provide free whois privacy. I've been managing my own domains there for 1.5years and it's been great. Cheers.
