Any reviews about namesilo?

Any reviews about namesilo?

Hello all!
Does anyone have any review/opinion about namesilo domain register? I use them since last year for several non-critical domains and i am willing to transfer there for start a couple of critical domains (.com) from GD. I am asking for opinions on stability, secure, validity as a company etc.
I am rather happy (if I put away their terrible client panel) from namesilo, but then, I am not so long with them and have not any really serious domains there.
On the other hand, even if GD was really stable for me for the last ~10 years, I am really pissed off of the continuous rise of their prices (they are nowadays almost double from cheap respected registers - they are asking ~18$ renewal price for some .com's I have to renew), the spamming in my inbox and the extra charges of tiny things like the air I breath!

    They are the registrar we use and have used for over one year now. Stable pricing, good discount opportunities and their whmcs modules works well.

  • I've always used namecheap.

    Yoked or Yolked? You decide.

  • pnklzpnklz Member

    Used them a few times before - reasonable prices. Security is average, maybe a bit better. Less nagging than GD to be sure. Namecheap is also worth a look.

    Do yourself a favor and check out 9anime - much better than kissanime imo

    PM me if you wanna buy cubed.me and triple.me as a combo for $100USD

  • It works. From a registrar, that's what I expect and want. Been using NameSilo for 2 years now, 0 complaints.

    Nowadays, I just stick to Porkbun and Namecheap.

    Get off GD. Namesilo is good. Namecheap is good too (edge to name silo for their free domain privacy). Cloudflare for (free) DNS.

    I also have domains in namecheap, internet.bs and some local (greek) registers. i used to have over 30 domains in GD, but nowadays there are left there less than 8...

    Recommended.

    We use them and have more than 500 domains there. Also their WHMCS plugin works flawlessly. The only to access their client area is to add funds :D

    I don't even know how their support system is, never used it! I mean never had to use it ;)

  • jvnadrjvnadr Member

    Some update: I just transferred 2 domains from GD to Namesilo. I am really impressed from both providers (yes, from the devil GD too!).
    I started the transfer procedure half an hour ago and GD released immediately the domain (yes, there were several steps to unlock and agree with the transfer) and Namesilo immediately accept it! The domains are now under the handling of NS in less than 30 minutes! Wow!

    To be honest, there's a lot of good domain registrars out, it's something hard to fuck up.

    I just go with Namecheap because of their political stances I align with, and I like the brand over all. I've used them since I was like 13, and I watched them grow from a tiny enom reseller to actually being ICANN-Accredited, so I kind of have a connection I guess? But, I realize I could probably get the same shit at Namesilo too lol.

    And yet, some registers are fucked up! I transferred 2 .coms a year ago to namesilo and it took 11 days for the departure register to release the domains, asking every couple days something new to agree with sending emails...

  • is it possible to resell domains from namecheap or porkbun? Though I have been very happy with Namesilo so far.

    Used to be 123-reg, but I personally had plenty of issues.

    OVH is still great.

    As for the rest is controlled by Brussels bureaucrats, this way domains are more expensive than US based registrars.

    I use Namesilo and Porkbun for all of my domains nowadays. The only times I use other registrars is if they have a promo deal going on and then I just transfer the domains out after a year.

    Thanked by 1jvnadr
  • 90% of my domains are in Namesilo! They are solid!

    Thanked by 1jvnadr
  • Solid option for sure.

  • Reason #1 their website makes sense. It's not some trendy BS web 3.0 slow loading janky S P A C E - W A S T I N G pile of crap (like Namecheap, Godaddy and others).

    Reason #2 best price, free WHOIS privacy.

    Reason #3 very fast transfers in, instant (immediate) transfers away. Honestly a great company.

    +1 for Namesilo. Got all my .net with them.

  • I love how simple their pages are.

    Bookmarkable trasfer status/logs pages for individual domains.

  • Namesilo.com is great, pricing and features are reasonable.

  • Have my domains with Namesilo.com also, no complaints what so ever, prices are one of the cheapest

  • manlivomanlivo Member

    Most of my domains are in Namesilo. Save my money when renewing.

  • They're one of the best imo. Fast and hasslefree domainmanagement.

  • namesilo is solid, but you should try Porkbun.

    I was an InternetBS user for a long time. Then, like the LowEndWhore that I am, when namecheap had a promo I moved everything there. But their service was kind of meh. When it came time to renew, I moved over to NameSilo and have just renewed again there. They're by no means the fanciest but get the job done with minimal fuss.

    Concerns About NameSilo

    1. NameSilo banned a bunch of Nazi domains last year. Although I despise Nazis the way Linus despises CVS, I generally disapprove of that kind of thing on free speech grounds.

    2. NameSilo was just bought by an investment company a month ago. This makes me concerned they're going to pull back on the free WHOIS protection, etc. in search of profits.

    That said, to date I've had no issues with NameSilo so these are just concerns and not actual experiences.

    Porkbun

    I've had a good experience with Porkbun, though I haven't used them as my main registrar. And I'm biased against them since they're here in Portland ;-) But I have no complaints and @Ross sometimes participates on LET.

    Well that's unfortunate, thanks for the info.

  • I use Namesilo for most TLDs and really like the service. I hope with the acquisition news doesn’t mean a turn for the worse

    What?! Thank you for info, transferring domains to Porkbun. Definitely not waiting for internet.bs like fiasco...

  • pxhaxorpxhaxor Member

    +1 for namesilo. been with them for over a year now. free whois is a plus (i'm a bit concerned now since someone mentioned that they're going to remove this feature)

    Just to be clear, NS hasn't announced anything...just a concern because we all know how buyouts often go.

    I am a happy customer of namesilo.

    I gave a chance to littlepigbun when they are really new and from what I experienced that time for me they are f..kbun.

    0% chance of trolling in posts.

    Hey a Canadian penny stock company bought them and is going to take them public - what could go wrong?

    Management without any knowledge what their company is doing! I saw a few examples where company been bought and after a few months later under new management is bust.

    Prices will be increased as new team want more dosh per domains not per amount of domains.

    used GD but price is high. use namecheap with satisfaction for 7-8years, but transfer too many domains to namesilo. namesilo used for almost 4-5years. lowest price in market for renew too. i am totally satisfied with them as namecheap too.
