Oh, I so wanted that to be real. For added authenticity a domain registrar in the far east would have been a nice touch rather than 123-reg. Fair play though, dying to know who's behind it  :)

Whenever I visit a site that's using it I minimise it immediately. I see it as a pain in the arse really as I view sites largely on a small res screen so it takes up valuable screen real estate for me.

Übersuggest reporting a HTTP Error 403: Forbidden - not long after the link was dropped here...

Been using this for a while now, presume it has been hammered and the owner got pissed off.

I came across this a few years ago when I was looking into something similar -

Can't vouch for them as I never got around to the project but they might be an option for you...

Wiep -

Thanks for that one. He's one that's escaped me. Looks like a good read...

Hi All,

Been at this game for over 10 years and recognise a lot of the names on here - makes me very nostalgic...

Not many folks will recognise me as I've been in lurker mode for many a year, but I'm starting to come out of the shadows now.

I started out in the domain game in 2000 and got involved in the ICANN gravy train for a few years, then got into affiliate stuff with some seo and ppc thrown in. Bit of a jack of all trades and master of none now... whilst running a small marketing company to help pay the bills.

For mega important stuff I will use only 1 company, but do NOT expect them to be cheap or even offer you a per domain price.

Nick Wood is the guy to speak to there.

For the equivalent if you're US based I would guess that MarkMonitor is the most obvious choice - but both are pretty much priced at the large corporate client level.

Monte leaving Moniker will inevitably have an effect I'd say, particularly on customer service which was a particular focus for him.

Unfortunately, making recommendations about domain registrars is pretty difficult these days as there are just so many bad ones out there. I used to be General Manager at an ICANN registrar in the UK for some years so I've had the misfortune of having to deal with some really terrible registrars over time.

Online interface wise i've found that most registrars are much of a muchness. Thet all have access to the same registry protocols so there isn't that much room for differentation. The main area that sets registrars apart, be they either ICANN or simple UK tag holders is customer support, and you get what you pay for in that regard.

For example, I personally wouldn't trust the support staff at 123-reg to sit the right way round on a toilet let alone administer tasks relating to important assets such as domain names.

In terms of half decent registrars, DomainMonster are ok and have a reasonable backorder system and in the US, even the lower priced registrars are pretty decent - the likes of Godaddy, etc. But if you have valuable domains you might want to lock them down at specialist registrars with good security and IP knowledge such as Com Laude, MarkMonitor or even NetNames.

I'd say that the (supposed) increased security offered by the upgrades mitigates the hassle of doing multiple upgrades somewhat, but if it's proving to be too much of a pain in the arse maybe just make sure that your wordpress version number isn't showing in your source code and take your chances by leaving doing the upgrades for a few builds.

That's what made me sign up to the forum today  ;)

Disappointed with the eventual content of that particular post - doesn't do what it says on the tin, but the other excellent posts on the forum have more than made up for it!

Used 34sp, clook and heart in the past and no complaints about any of them...
