As reported in The Wall Street Journal on September 11, 2010. One of the largest internet domain registrar and managed web hosting provider, Go Daddy at www.godaddy.com is now up for sale with the asking price tag of $1 billion dollars (wow?). Read it here at The Wall Street Journal, GoDaddy.com Goes on the Auction Block.
Two weeks later, another managed web hosting provider called HostGator, announced they are planning to launch their own domain name registrar services with cheaper price and 24/7 support. Here is the latest newsletter from HostGator:
“HostGator is mere weeks away from offering domain registration from our very own domain registrar service. Not only will the registration prices be significantly cheaper than GoDaddy, but you will also receive the legendary 24/7 around the clock support that you have come to know and love from HostGator.”
I’m looking forward to see what HostGator has to offer on their new domain name registrar service. If their new domain registrar service hit the right price and features, I would definitely give them a try when one of my domain name is about to renew.
If HostGator new domain name registrar service turn out to be as good or better than my previous domain name registrar at namecheap.com. I would definitely switch all of my domain names from Namecheap.com to HostGator.com, but we’ll see what happen.
Currently I’m please with Namecheap with their reasonable price, good control panel to manage domain names, secure and most importantly the propagate usually takes about about 5 min, or several hours to propagate.
If HostGator can manage to do that, I will no doubt have HostGator for my entire managed web hosting services and domain name registration services with HostGator.
