Anyway, in my shopping around for a trustworthy domain registrar and host I found the list below. Most of them seem to have some garbage in their terms forfeiture of all rights to your own Intellectual Property and creations. I also want to ensure that MY domain is owned by ME, exclusively. I don't want some registrar trying to pull a fast one on me with my domain. I've included some brief notes about what I discovered. They are ordered roughly by credibility and trustworthiness.
- PJLHosting.com (my choice)
- InMotionHosting.com (A fantastic alternative, I chatted at length with their tech. Excellent reviews.)
- InternetBS.net (ICANN Accredited, registrar only)
- GreenGeeks.com (out) - A few too many bad reviews :(
- WebHostingHub.com (out) - A few too many bad reviews :(
- HostGator.com (out) - A few too many bad reviews :(
- DNSCentral.com (out) - registrar only, non-accredited
These hosts had some super shady Service Agreements. I won't even mess with them.
- NameCheap.com (out) - Same as NetworkSolutions below; same article too.
- NetworkSolutions.com (out) - Article 6 of their Service Agreement, ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?!
- Enom.com (out) - Shared domain ownership? Ahhhmmm NO!
Anyway, I hope to have my site live within a few weeks. If you're interested in my new domain, shoot me a message, otherwise I don't plan on linking from my blogs as I will maintain that site separately. As always, thanks to all my readers :)
