Register.com is a one-stop shop for domain registration, web design, and site management: in short it earns its self-appointed title “the leader in small business tools” in spades. Register.com became a Web.com company in 2010, and today it boasts ten years of experience, well over 2.5 million domains to its name and hundreds of thousands of customers who rely on Register.com to power their businesses’ online presence. It seems Register.com is more than deserving of its customers’ trust: the web services company can lay claim a long list of industry awards (including Web Host Directory’s Best Domain Registrar of 2012).
Through your account, Register.com enables you to create subdomains, modify DNS, and auto-renew any of its products. You can also utilize Register’s wide range of other features: bulk domain registration, domain expiration protection, private domain registration, WHOIS lookup, and make purchases from Register.com’s extensive selection of reasonably priced premium domains. You can also request website forwarding or transfer. SSL certificates are also available, though they are not included with domain registration. And that’s not all--you can also recruit Register.com to make anonymous bids on your behalf, and if you wish to know the value of a particular domain, be sure to use one Register.com’s most attractive and popular features--domain appraisal conducted by the professionals at Afternic. Each appraisal is individually prepared by a specialized appraisal team, using Afternic’s proprietary Domain Name Index Scoring and Valuation System. Overpaying for or underselling domains is a thing of the past.
Register.com offers several shared hosting plans with an unbeatable 100% uptime guarantee for Unix and Windows (featuring free email and dedicated IP).
It also takes pains to craft site building packages that enable even the most inexperienced domain registrant to build a satisfying site rapidly and easily, or give expert customers the tools to let their talents shine. Not only are the bulk of its services eCommerce-friendly, but Register.com also offers a range of marketing services across social media, email, and search engines. Register.com also offers a tempting affiliate program, with the opportunity to earn up to $750 per web hosting sale.
Register.com offers a money back guarantee for all its services, except for hosting and premium domains. However, Register.com does not enumerate prices for specific domain extensions on its website; contact the company for specifics.
Register.com offers a small but informative selection of FAQs. The learning center and Web 101 Blog cover a thorough range of other issues. The registrar also offers 24/7 customer service via toll-free phone or online chat, or you have the option to connect with the company using social media: Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and Linkedin are all integrated with Register.com.
Register.com’s features and layout are fairly similar to other Web.com brands like Network Solutions. However, its money back guarantee, domain appraisal, and wide range of services beyond domain registration set it apart from the competition.
