"True and Professional Domain Provider ¡Best Prices!"

What do you like best?

Been using Namesilo for quite a long time and they are truly a transparent and efficient domain provider. You have all and more of the feature you would expect for a more known name but in a professional and direct way. You can trust in their service expecting that your purchase value is safe and is considered as important, no matter if you only have 1 or 1000 domains. Prices are low, sustainable and only vary prior external circunstances. Definitely your #1 choice for centralizing your domains

What do you dislike?

That they don´t support my specific country domain, but I know is out of their competence. Miss a save searchs or favorites domains for later purchase. Obtaining know and then discount coupons or less number of purchase s to obtain a discount.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Stop looking in other domain provider and give it a try, you would be satisfied with their simplicity and transparent policies.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Central purchase and management of domains for clients and personal interests. Obtaining the best price for maximizing benefits when managing clients services. No looking in every provider and wasting time comparing prices

"Best domain Registrar"

What do you like best?

the pricing provided by namesilo is absolutely outstanding, there is no other service I've come across provides domains at those rates. they also do not restrict the pricing to the first domain registration like provided by godaddy and there are additional discounts when you order in bulk, above 49 domains which are cool. the support is absolutely great, i mean they are one of the best I've come across. they replied quickly to my questions and very satisfied with them. another thing about them is the user interface, you can manage your domain very easily when registered with them, there are shortcuts to every setting like nameservers and dns. the DNS management option provides you with a wide variety of options and templates that you can apply to the domain. another interesting feature is the domain defender service that helps you save your domain from theft and is very essential where domain theft and piracy is everywhere.

What do you dislike?

they do not provide hosting which is really bad considering that most of the other major domain registrars also provide hosting. also, they provide very limited offers comparing to other major providers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

when it comes to domain registration, they provide the cheapest domains in the market when you don't use any coupons. also they dont provide hosting so if youre a newbie who get into the market i recommend you to stay away cause you could easily mess up the dns settings although their support is pretty awesome and really helpful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Registering domain name with them. they are the cheapest domain registrar i've come across and the support is also pretty impressive.

What Domain Registration solution do you use?

"Cheapest Domains on the Planet"

What do you like best?

Namesilo is without any doubt the cheapest domain registration i know, there are many other domain registrars who might offer a domain for one or two dollars but they got huge renewal charges or the discount is only applicable to the first domain. when it comes to namesilo the domain registration costs around seven dollars for a .com domain which is really cheap. there is also additional discounts available when you buy domains in bulk. they offer free privacy along with the domain registration which is not popular around other registrars who usually charges fees around ten dollars for the service.

the domain management tools are also great ,there is a domain protection service which serures your account and domains from getting hijacked. there are DNS Management tools, Privacy management, domain locking and much more. another option you have with namesilo is the ability to park the domain with 100% revenue to the user which isn't common. they also have their own marketplace for selling and buying domains. as for domain name registration, its really simple you just have to select the domains you need and checkout, there is a huge list of TLD's available from which you can choose the perfect name for your website.

What do you dislike?

There is no hosting available which is not a big issue but still, it would be great if they provided the service. the interface isn't that good and need improvement.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Namesilo is the cheapest domain registrar for .com domains, I'm a huge fan of their service and i highly recommend them.

"Cheap and Reliable Domain Regisering Service"

What do you like best?

I think the characteristic feature of this company is the focus on affordability. They offer domain registration for a very competitive price. They also provide a very good control panel to manage your domains including the level of privacy in whois queries, dns settings, domain forwarding, etc.

What do you dislike?

While they have a good response time on their support system the quality of responses are not effective most of the time. You need to go through a back and forth lengthy discussion to solve your issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think it is a good option for the money you pay.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a company what needed registering a considerable number of domains just for research purpose, the cost and accessibility were two main factors for us that NameSilo provided both for us. As a technical company we didn't need that much support from them so the lack of a good quality support system was less of a concern for us.

"Easy and hassle-free domain registration"

What do you like best?

NameSilo is the cheapest registrar out there. Their control panel is insanely simple and lightning fast. They provide FREE lifetime WHOIS protection with no attempted upselling. This has been one of the best registrars I've worked with.

What do you dislike?

Their website looks pretty out of date and it gives you the impression that it's a little spammy. Still, it's extremely fast compared to dashboards like Namecheap so I'd rather take speed and Web 2.0 design over "pretty" but slow like Namecheap's interface.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is one of the best registrars I've used. Namecheap and Hover seem to be lauded as the best ones out there at the moment but NameSilo is, in my opinion, the best out there. It's currently the underdog since it doesn't have the presence that other companies have but it gets the job done better than anyone.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

NameSilo is a hassle-free registrar. I like that they don't try to be a registrar, a web host, a marketing company, etc. They just do cheap domain registration, and that's all I'm looking for in a registrar. I used to register my previous company's domains on NameSilo and I will be migrating my personal ones from Namecheap once they are up for renewal.

"Full-featured registrar with fantastic pricing, great support and no upsells"

What do you like best?

There are many features that other registrars charge for that NameSilo gives you for free, including WHOIS privacy, parking, redirects, and email forwarding.

What do you dislike?

I wish they would support ALIAS DNS records. Also, their DNS interface works fine for one domain but it's a little clunky for editing multiple domains at once.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I keep my domains at NameSilo because it's the cheapest registrar out there, has good customer service, and is not owned by an internet behemoth such as Google, CloudFlare, GoDaddy or EIG.

"Cheap Domain Names and Secure Registrar"

What do you like best?

The prices of their domain name are very cheap as NameSilo offers a very interesting price. As a matter of fact, I once search for a .com domain name which normally costs around $11 but on NameSilo website, it was just $7

What do you dislike?

I haven't found none for now. Although i would like NameSilo to enable one to sell his domain names from another registrar on their website

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking to buy domain names especially .com and .org for a very cheap prices, you should give Namesilo a try

"Best registrar for general TLDs"

What do you like best?

Very competitive pricing, easy domain control and management panel, regular and expired domain marketplace, low commission, free WHOIS privacy (long before the EU requirement forced others to offer it free as well), easy payment options, instantaneous support.

What do you dislike?

The discount scheme forces fixed funding, so don't use it. But doesn't matter really - it's compensated by some other things that cost elsewhere :)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't even think, just switchover. Ever since I switched to NameSilo, there have only been transfer-ins. No transfer-outs except when a domain was sold.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Most of my domains now are with Namesilo. Saved quite a bit with free privacy.

"Email support only - never on chat!"

What do you like best?

I thought their pricing was decent, and I had read they had Chat support...

What do you dislike?

Interface and console are NOT user-friendly. Knowledgebase and help files are mostly useless. Takes hours to figure out how to do something unless you're a pro.

They provide EMAIL SUPPORT ONLY as are NEVER ONLINE FOR CHAT - even in the middle of the day. No phone support whatsoever either. Even in a crunch when begging for help in email. Takes way to long to get responses.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I saw their new site soon to be released... it's not much better for the API. I would find another company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am trying to get webpage live (contact info via Parked page), but cant until I get more help.

"A new rise competitor in the Domain Market"

What do you like best?

The pricing tiers are great, as other providers are requiring expensive fees on domain creation, transfer, or renewals, Namesilo is doing their expertise to keep the price down. It is also great for domain parking, as they provide different themes for the parking page, custom text or slogans you can display, and most importantly, Namesilo can also handle domain transfer via auction/market-selling. Great to have this feature when you have couple of domain unwanted, but want to make them as a profit.

Free WHOIS privacy is their gimmick, however that's a big plus to most of us. We don't need to disclose all or even partial information to the public, makes our profile safer, and away from spam. However me myself keeps the WHOIS profile public, to allow certain transparency for my customer to see and gain their trust. Though this action brings us alot of spammy WHOIS junk mail.

What do you dislike?

The panel is a pain in the ass, as you will find there is A LOT of "managers" inside the system, which can be simplified as some other easy-to-understand names, I guess that's their disadvantage.

No Strip payment is a big minus, but as long as they are accepting PayPal, Credit Cards, BitCoin, Skrill, Dwolla, and also Wired transfers, I am happy with that.

As for the API part, it is a nightmare while Namesilo didn't provide any SDK for developers, made us to count on ourselves. However there is a plenty plugins for billing solutions like Blesta or WHMCS, so reselling is not a problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Cheap, easy to use, various tlds with decent renewal price.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mainly this would be pricing issue, as we have facing a tons of domains need to be consolidate, while for the long term price is the main issue, NameSilo has gave us a great price tier to maintain our plan. Also the drop-catch feature is great, that way we can plan a long term project without the worry on purchasing domains.

"Great for the Admin, Not for the Bookkeeper"

What do you like best?

Easy integrations make domain management a breeze. I don't need to spend the time using their portal when the software I already have will show me all the relevant information by pulling it from their API.

What do you dislike?

The discount program makes it difficult to be able to have a separate transaction for each domain bought with a payment account without buying the next six or seven years at a time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

NameSilo is definitely a competitive solution in the domain market. Just make sure the way their billing works is going to be fine with your companies policies as that was the only downfall I had with them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to track domains from my own dashboard makes ensuring configurations a breeze.

"NameSilo is very inexpensive, but not cheap"

What do you like best?

Their tools are much better for bulk transactions than their competition.

It is very no nonsense, no upsells, like ever!

Includes domain privacy. Their tech folks are really top notch.

What do you dislike?

seriously, I can't even complain about anything of substance. I guess, I don't like their color scheme. they could tart up their UI a bit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it, you won't miss the over billing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Registrar that is inexpensive and has decent tools. We were tired of the up sells and over billing.
