The Super Bowl is almost here, which reminds me, I need to move domains from GoDaddy...
If there's anything the Super Bowl is good for, it's a yearly reminder that we shouldn't be using GoDaddy to purchase domains. Similar to how the switch between Daylight Savings and Standard Time is a biannual reminder that we should change batteries in our smoke alarms, the Super Bowl provides a great opportunity for a equally beneficial public service.
That said, I'm ashamed to admit that I still have a few domains hosted with them, mostly out of sheer laziness. The last time I looked, transferring domains seemed like it was a daunting task (since I'm using WHOIS privacy, I think I was going to have to scan a passport and two forms of address verification to send in? It was something crazy.)
Has anyone gone through the process of moving their domains from GoDaddy to something like Name.com (or other registrars)? What is the process like?
It's an idea that's been festering for awhile now.
I've been using namecheap.com to register domain names for a year or two. I like to keep my domain registration and hosting separate. They've been awesome. Plus they just refreshed their site's design and it looks awesome (I'm a sucker for pretty UI). I'll try out name.com next time I need to register a domain.
I'm not a fan of GoDaddy because their interface is terrible. For me, they're tied with Network Solutions for the worst UI in the business, at least among the major players.
I also am not a fan of GoDaddy on multiple levels, especially the way they do business and marketing.
