Ya'll get what you pay for. It's -not- always about price. And while more expensive, DomainMonger has saved my butt, and that of my customers.

Yep. I'm a Domain Monger fan for similar reasons.

We need a "recommended services" page, which probably relies on me fixing the local wiki, which really means that I should re-think a lot of the underlying system that runs this server, but...

Anyway, as the Dreamhost thread showed, there's assorted knowledge out there that it'd be nice to condense. The hard part is the usual, that we want to keep it to real contributors so that we have a context for what's being recommended.

I hate to be old-fashioned, and I know it is horribly retrograde and that they have had more than their share of problems, but I still have all my domains registered with Network Solutions. Once you learn how to dodge all the schemes where they are trying to sell you optional services you don't want, and you know how to turn on the right things and turn off the wrong things, they're fine, and always have been.

And, even if they are an evil behemoth in some ways, I trust their reliability of service more than some of these Johnny-come-latelies.

Meuon and I have been dealing with Network Solutions since probably 1993 and ... I don't wanna say anything incriminating, because I know the things I've done were all in line with the wishes of the domain name owner, but the number of times I've had to go outside the system, and the ways that I've gone outside the system, have not made me confident in their procedures. The whole "sex.com" thing was very much "it's a wonder that didn't happen far more often" thing for me.

I know that DomainMonger is just reselling Tucows or something similar, but the level of fuck-up protection they've managed to put on top of that process, the times they've helped me out even though the config issues were clearly on my end, and the cheap and very nicely configured DNS services, have made me a long-term fan.

What sold me on using DomainMonger was the time I had a problem, called a phone number for them that I tracked down and had a human, the human I needed to talk to, answer the phone and immediately take care of the problem.

Got calls/emails over the weekend about re-building from scratch an e-commerce site that had the domain registered with NoDaddy.. hosted, shopping cart and such, all through them. Don't know what the details are, but NoDaddy "lost" it all, and finding a human smart enough to figure it out and fix it has so far proven impossible.
