PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHEN REGISTERING A DOMAIN NAME.
We have had several clients who registered their domain name
through an, unfortunately, unreliable domain registrar who kept
the domain password to themselves and tried to charge a fee to sell
the domain password to the owner of the domain. This is possible
because, when one registers a domain name, one registers the owner,
the technical contact, the administrative contact, and the billing
contact. If an unscrupulous domain seller registers the domain in
your name, but the technical and admin contact in their name, they
get the password, and can hold it 'hostage', charging you an additional
fee for you to get the password to your own domain. Be particularly
careful of anyplace that claims to register your domain name for
you for free - they will register it without charging you, but are
likely to ask you to pay a fee to access the domain management,
or to get the password. There are a number of reliable domain registrars,
only couple of which are listed below.
We will register your domain name for you because some clients
just don't know where to go, who is a reliable registrar, etc. However,
if you prefer to register it yourself, we recommend www.godaddy.com.
We also use domainsatcost.ca
for registering .ca names. Compare their prices to the (unrecommended)
high prices at at Melbourne IT Network
