    I have registered my 2 domains on Google Domains for 13 years!

    I can say their service and features are good, plus there is free email forwarding.

    The other options I have used are Porkbun & Dynadot

  2. Victoria Blackwell on December 28, 2020 at 7:47 pm

    So if I purchase my domain name from Dynadot, will it transfer to Wix? Or would Namecheap be better? Will it transfer? I am having an extremely bad experience with Wix, but I have worked so hard on the site that I just can’t make myself rebuild another one somewhere else. I am a writer. I don’t have time to keep building damn websites.

  3. Catsudon on December 28, 2020 at 7:48 pm

    I’m considering google domains due to the register and renewal prices being similar. I’ll probably transfer to namecheap when i get webhosting.

  4. TEXT STORY TELLING on December 28, 2020 at 7:49 pm

    How about shopfiy

  5. Zekegold on December 28, 2020 at 7:49 pm

    Hi Craylor Made, I used porkbun and it’s good but the domain price increased to 9.59 after renew and I messaged their customer service. He replied "I don’t see it". The website he sent to me still says 9.59 after renew, lol. After an hour, I went back to the website and the domain buying is back to 8.56… So I don’t know what is going on and why are they lying. I don’t think porkbun is bad because I use it but the price changing is not cool.

    When it comes to hosting histgator is best

  7. Miroslav Hočak on December 28, 2020 at 7:53 pm

    I chose Namecheap!

  9. Andrew Cortesi on December 28, 2020 at 7:55 pm

    Kind of a weird video right? I mean honestly I kind of don’t give a shit where I buy a domain. With the number of redirects that you have to manage, it really doesn’t matter. The main expense is hosting. Also, who uses a domain registrar app?

    Update: I see he has a video on hosting. Cool

  10. saqer bassim on December 28, 2020 at 7:59 pm

    How I can resell my domain??

  11. Grace Eke on December 28, 2020 at 8:01 pm

    I love your honest reviews on these. Very helpful! Thanks

    I want to start buying domain names for $10 or cheaper to eventually sell. Where is the best or the best site to buy these domains with the least problems or expenses…. i was thinking either dynadot or namechaep.

  14. Pauline Seraphina on December 28, 2020 at 8:03 pm

    Thanks for this 🙏🏻 I just bought my first domain at a fraction of the price that’s listed on g0 d@d dY 😤

    With a haircut and some contacts, this guy could go places

  16. Ashley Lou on December 28, 2020 at 8:05 pm

    There was a GoDaddy ad on your video, not sure if you planned that but it was funny when 25% of your video consisted of slamming them.

  17. Andrea Méndez Salazar on December 28, 2020 at 8:05 pm

    Thanks for videos, now I’m clear now to buy my domain

  18. Who? on December 28, 2020 at 8:06 pm

    I always go with namecheap

  19. K B. on December 28, 2020 at 8:07 pm

    I have chosen a domain name that is available (havent purchased yet) bc I am still unsure of what’s out there (best websites) this video was helpful. You mentioned one had web hosting. Do you need that? I understand the who is protection and what to look for with that. I’m starting a small business (cleaning). I want people to be able to look me up and see my website online

  20. Daniel Hernández on December 28, 2020 at 8:10 pm

    Gracias! No existe un análisis así en español… Me resultó muy útil

  21. Mariela Domingo on December 28, 2020 at 8:12 pm

    Never heard of porkbun before. Thank you so much!

  22. Christyn A on December 28, 2020 at 8:12 pm

    Can you explain .app

  23. Matthew Gaming on December 28, 2020 at 8:14 pm

    I Used Godaddy

  24. Gustavo on December 28, 2020 at 8:14 pm

    is there a way to trick your domain company? like instead of renew your domain, you quit after a year, and then after 2 or 3 days go and buy it like the first time?

  25. One Warkid on December 28, 2020 at 8:15 pm

    I wonder how much they paid you

  26. Kay 09 on December 28, 2020 at 8:16 pm

    google domain is a good choice if you are hoping to host your website using other platforms such as Shopify, Wix, etc because you can connect the domain with the hosting service straight through google. And if you are using google domains, the verification process for google services is also super easy. The only downside is it’s not available for most countries.

    and I have a quick question. In the pricing for Namecheap WordPress hosting there was only one option for WordPress called EasyWB so I need to know whether it supports woocommerce/eCommerce websites as well or is it just supporting static WordPress websites.

  27. Alexis on December 28, 2020 at 8:17 pm

    "Dark pattern" hate it too!

  28. Coin Bureau on December 28, 2020 at 8:17 pm

    Actually trading was not easy for me.
    Lost a lot of money through + 500, FBS also lost a lot of money to trading assistants and copy trader’s, almost gave up on forex / Bitcoin trading. but a friend of mine introduced me to a good broker, at first i thought it was another way of wasting my hard earned savings. But my greatest surprise was my investment of $ 3,000 came out with $ 6,580 in 10 days trading ….. You just have to be patient with them till your trades are completed ….. To be honest I didn’t just recovered all my previous losses .. I made much more than my past expenses .. actually she charges 15% which won’t affect you in any way since her trading efficiency comes in multiples of investment …
    I personally recommend Mrs Caroline trading services for best copy trading always trade with them and stop loosing your money …. reach out to her and believe me a trial will convince you
    Here’s her contact details⬇️⬇️⬇️

    Oh wow, I just learned what I needed to do to go buy a Domain name. Thank you so much for your honesty.

  30. jose marquez on December 28, 2020 at 8:22 pm

    I just got a GoDaddy ad..

  31. Sebastian LaCause on December 28, 2020 at 8:22 pm

    This video popped up at just the right time. Thank you! Dynadot for me.

  32. Michael Foust on December 28, 2020 at 8:23 pm

    How are they on forwarding your domain names?

  33. DriverSteve on December 28, 2020 at 8:23 pm

    NameCheap expensive? Seriously? A ".com" domain name is $8.88/yr, bro! It’s been that way for a few years now! Not sure where you got $13/yr!

  34. ICE ROAD TRUCKER STEVO on December 28, 2020 at 8:24 pm

    from wasting too much money. The service is not great and all fees are
    too expensive. THEY CHARGE for items that other HOSTS GIVE YOU FOR

  35. Alper Ak on December 28, 2020 at 8:24 pm

    now registering over ur link to dynadot bro. Thanks for the video. Greetings from Istanbul-Turkey.

  36. Ambient Soda on December 28, 2020 at 8:24 pm

    What about getting databases set up on the web server?

  37. lewis20002000 on December 28, 2020 at 8:26 pm

    Thank you very much. I needed

  38. Mauricio Gonzalez Robles on December 28, 2020 at 8:26 pm

    I went to look for very long domain names in Dynadot and Google Domains, and they have way more expensive prices (???)
    Is this review out of date or am I missing something?

  39. TJsCreativeWorkshopLLC on December 28, 2020 at 8:28 pm

    thanks Im going to check out dynodot

  40. Yussif Jaber on December 28, 2020 at 8:30 pm

    I can second Domain.com is trash. Every single time I’ve spoken to their support they were flimsy and deceptive.

  41. anonymous anonymous on December 28, 2020 at 8:33 pm

    Dynadot: 4:07 = best ?
    Porkbun: 5:44 = cheap
    Namecheap: 7:48 = his best

    -GoDaddy: 1:25
    -Domain: 11:17
    -Hover: 6:46
    -Google Domains: 9:42

  42. Elizabeth Ukeh on December 28, 2020 at 8:34 pm

    Can I start my ecommerce business on a cheap hosting site like namecheap then migrate to siteground when my business grows?

  43. alfred ochola on December 28, 2020 at 8:35 pm

    Thanks alot bro

  44. Matthew Gaming on December 28, 2020 at 8:36 pm

    Who Is Protection Is Bad

  45. Ashlie Jones on December 28, 2020 at 8:37 pm

    I found this video a week after going with Godaddy (and all of it’s up sales)… smh
    You live and you learn…

  46. mrconsignment on December 28, 2020 at 8:38 pm

    Thanks, just got a $1.99 Black Friday/Cyber Monday special on a cool .me name via Dynadot and they accept Paypal. P.S. And PP sent me a special offer so it was free,

  47. Etheaary on December 28, 2020 at 8:40 pm

    2:18 some tlds are cheaper than other registrars like:

  48. AJ Ghamdi on December 28, 2020 at 8:42 pm

    I totally agree with you with regard to GoDaddy. They are very deceptive to say the least

  49. DriverSteve on December 28, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    GoDaddy is like the WORST PLACE to buy a Domain Name for many reasons! Only amateurs buy at GoDaddy! LOL!

  50. Beryl Odondi on December 28, 2020 at 8:46 pm

    Many thanks, I’ve been looking for "what numbers have won the lottery the most" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across – Peyavid Reputable Predominance – (search on google ) ? It is a smashing one of a kind guide for discovering how to make cash with this easy to follow system minus the normal expense. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my work buddy got cool results with it.
