In the wake of GoDaddy’s excruciatingly bad SuperBowl ad, hopefully thousands of people are looking for a new domain registrar. What is a registrar and who provides the best services?
When I teach a class that involves students purchasing domain names and building a website, I always advise against GoDaddy as a registrar. When students ask why, I mention the user-unfriendly interface and personal experience with trying to transfer domains.
Back in 2007, Fritos (Pepsi) made a splash with its Super Bowl ads, produced in a user-generated content contest. The contest found a home on Facebook. Here are the five finalists (and the ads that made a national debut this evening). Updated with the two that aired. (My favorite: #5)
The complimentary one-year domain name that web hosts use to lure new customers too often has a downside (or two). They range from inconvenient to security risks. But the most frustrating: failure to provide specific information on the “temporary” location of the website.
