I'm only just looking into this and went on GoDaddy last night, the terms and conditions were massive and put me off.  Does anyone use them?  Has anyone tried Namecheap? EasyDNS?


Thanks in advance.

I'm a work in progress

I use GoDaddy for my website. I'm not happy with their site design software (Website Tonite), but GoDaddy is now integrated with Wordpress. A lot of people use Wordpress to create and design their site with GoDadddy as the domain registrar. I'll probably switch over to that in the future.


As for their terms and conditions, I think they're pretty standard. I've never had any problems, and the tech support is decent.

I use bluehost for my academic web site and I really like it. Their prices are reasonable and they have really good customer support. I was up and running almost immediately after signing up. Here is the site FWIW: http://jamesgreenarmytage.com/

I use blue host and I am totally clueless when it comes to web stuff. I selected it because it was cheap.
