"Must be savvy"

What do you like best?

I like that I am not pushed to buy anything other than an ip and registration. Other companies make it hard to even publish your site without their site builder or a consultation etc. Register also has a partner agreement where you can become a reseller.

What do you dislike?

There is not a lot of help outside of resetting the server the ip is connected to. So any Ldap errors etc will all be handled through you .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Register also has a user friendly site if someone wants to take over the domain you are reselling. The customer end is called web.com and they have a DIY site builder. It's not adobe but its something.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to resell domains and even websites that we have built where someone like a realtor can just own the domain and we do the maintenance since this comes with none. It isn't even an option.

"Build websites with ease!"

What do you like best?

User friendly website. Professional assistance from web.com helped me build a good site! It has good executed and easy to use online store. Prices are cheap compared to other websites. If you want to build a personal, web.com has enough tools to allow you to build a pretty decent website. web.com has 450 mobile-optimized design templates to choose from, which is a fairly large collection. When it comes to customizing mobile templates, the options that web.com provides are actually a lot more than what other websites builders provide. If you subsribe to premium version then you get verity of support like email, live chart and phone. The support team is very skilled and are really helpful in what you would like to design. The website also provides free hosting.

What do you dislike?

My complaint is that there can be times fairly frequently where you cannot log in. This is the only problem I have had with it, and it is a pain when I need to log in to update my website, because I can't.

web.com does not allow you the flexibility to edit the CSS and HTML of the templates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a small business or plan on having an online shop, Web.com is a website builder you should consider. If you want to keep your domain then do not pay amount after your last day. They will sell the domain to some other customers or ask higher amount from you.

"A guide to easy website building!"

What do you like best?

For a layman, building a website may seem to be quite a challenging job! With register.com, the process not only got simpler, but also helped me learn and understand the elements of a good website. It has some unmatchable qualities like an amazing array of templates to choose from, customization-friendly mobile templates and an ease to keep a track of all of them in one go. Premium version also fetch us a bank of supported features like emails, live chat on phone and more options.

Also, the major issue of web hosting becomes so hassle-free with them!

What do you dislike?

One of the major concern's I felt was an after-service of updation of my website. Also, the pricing is little at the higher side as compared to the well-marketed service providers such as GoDaddy and likes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it, your bucks will fetch you amazing experience with a slight hazards. That anyway is a part of any portal!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One of my friend's existing blog crashed due to some tad-inefficiency of the backend. This not only helped me to give her a guide to fix the same, but also helped me to save few extra bucks for my company's blog as well. (Getting it fixed from outside surely had an exorbitant amount with it.)

"Easy creating websites"

What do you like best?

The website has a great collection of design templates especially the ones that are mobile oriented are really helpful. The site is pretty much a good experience for a user in terms of UX/UI. Along with super easy DNS settings, a customer support and a great look and feel, its kind of the best in the market.

What do you dislike?

The stupid lag in page loads is very very frustrating and kills all the productivity goals you had for the day. I happened twice with us but that can be ignored given the general page lag is minimal. Another thing I dislike about register.com is that the templates cannot be customized to my specifications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the best thing the market has yet to offer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have registered new domains with register.com and done all the DNS settings super fast and super easy.

"Web.com - New Way to build our website"

What do you like best?

- The best, user friendly website builder.

- User Interface is attractive and editing the website is very easy by readily drag and drop the modules (Pictures, Slides, Files).

- Compared to other website builders (Wix/ squarespace), Web.com is simple and easy to learn.

- Other notable features like integrating membership function, group Email, restricting the view of the website (Public/ Private/ Members).

- Availability of app store of web.com makes the work smoother just by suggesting the required tools and features required.

- It is fast, flexible, inbuilt testing tools improve the quality of our website.

- Good Community support

What do you dislike?

- Website loading time for publisher is normal where as it will hang or slow down in case of large visitors.

- We get to choose only inbuilt testing tools all the time, free trial period of other good tools is not given so that we can test on free tool and decide weather to use that particular tool or not.

- Again with the web templates we should satisfy with what they provide (inbuilt) and we cannot modify their code according to our requirement.

- There are other website domain ( Weebly / Jimdo ) available with cheaper price and better performance than Web.com. It is confined only for a small business.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you plan to limit yourself for a small industry like E-Commerce or as a non-profit organisation I strongly recommend web.com

"The gold standard in domain registration"

What do you like best?

Register.com, while not being the cheapest registrar out there, provides a solid and reliable domain registration service while also providing other beneficial services including web hosting, web design, and search engine optimization. The interface to the site is nice and clean, easy to follow, and managing a domain's DNS settings is easy to navigate.

What do you dislike?

Register.com is not the cheapest registrar out there and their fees for making a domain private can sometimes be more costly than its competitors.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look for coupons and discounts through Google before going through Register.com. You will not be disappointed going with them aside from costs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Register.com has provided domain registration services for me personally as well as customers in the past looking for a safe, simple domain registrar with no tricks.

I think the UX could be cleaner - allowing for a more simple customer experience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are helping customers to go live with their websites, we have realized that Register.com is a company that makes this process simple and easy.

Sometimes it remains unavailable/inaccessible.

"Why go with register.com when there are cheaper, just as effective alternatives?"

What do you like best?

Pretty standard offerings on domain name registrations and several website hosting packages. They do offer a few international top-level domains that are not as available on godaddy. They seem to have reasonable support

What do you dislike?

Pricey relative to alternatives!! $35 for 1 yr is nearly $20 more than godaddy for the same period!

Many generic top level domain names not supported.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try out godaddy or other options unless you are looking for something specific from register.com. I've used register.com for domain name registration at a prior company -- it was beneficial to choose a 3-yr term to get some savings. Also, they offer private whois registration so that your info isn't exposed broadly -- highly recommended

"Another domain register"

What do you like best?

I have had several clients use register.com--it does work really well & their interface is rather simplistic for making DNS changes.

What do you dislike?

When it came to needing support, I was not very impressed with their support and every problem seemed to be my fault.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They are a little pricey--look at some of the alternatives and maybe consider hosting your DNS elsewhere.

"Performs as advertised but cost is too high"

What do you like best?

Easy to purchase domains and manage from central account. Email expiration notifications are helpful so as not to lose domains.

What do you dislike?

Cost is more than double GoDaddy without any perceived differences.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No need to pay more than you have to. GoDaddy offers great support and low cost domain purchases.

"Excellent Domain Registration"

What do you like best?

I have found register.com to be a simple to use domain registrar, that allows easy visibility into all of your domains, and when they expire, etc.

What do you dislike?

Lack of support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are an experienced admin this is a great solution, if you need more support, I would recommend looking at other registrar's.
