What do you like best?

Register.com offers reasonable pricing and has good customer service and technical support. The shared hosting plan we use has good page loading speeds at just about all hours of the day. The Register.com account tools have all the main domain and hosting management tools we need to add new CMS installations, email addresses and make quick files transfers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The pricing isn't bad to me, but it also isn't nearly close to the lowest prices on the market for similar services. Customer support and reliable service is a big plus for me though, so that's why the pricing hasn't made me switch to a different company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are many domain registrars and web hosting companies today, but if your website is central to the operation of your business, then you should consider a long established company that can be trusted like Register.com. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We have used Register.com for domain name registrations and web hosting. Our experience with the support team has been smooth through both calls and emails. We don't often get reports of our websites being down and there haven't been any significant security issues or performance problems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Register.com does a good job at staying up with web technology in both the front and back end. They offer some DIY web builder templates that are easy for me and several associates to use. We can also activate many types of web programming languages such as PHP and MySQL. Register offers a solid hosting plan that we use for our WordPress websites. The customer service at Register.com is very pleasant and is usually easy to get a hold of. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think that some of Register's shared hosting plans can be a little bit slow due to the amount of users that they have on them. Even though we had a good experience with Register overall, I thinks faster page loading speeds can be had at more boutique hosting companies that have fewer customers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Register.com is a company that has a pretty good reputation based on what I've read and it's been around for many years. I haven't heard many bad things about Register from the people I know that have used them for hosting or domain registration. I think that you'll be able to find the right fit with a plan regardless of what type of website you planned to produce. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We host a wide array of websites and other digital media through our hosting plans at Register.com. We can buy lots of the web hosting products that we need all at one place, which makes managing all of these digital products less confusing. We get very competitive pricing with Register and have access to a responsive customer support team, which is very important when we are implementing some of our more complex websites.

Register.com, while not being the cheapest registrar out there, provides a solid and reliable domain registration service while also providing other beneficial services including web hosting, web design, and search engine optimization. The interface to the site is nice and clean, easy to follow, and managing a domain's DNS settings is easy to navigate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Register.com is not the cheapest registrar out there and their fees for making a domain private can sometimes be more costly than its competitors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Look for coupons and discounts through Google before going through Register.com. You will not be disappointed going with them aside from costs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Register.com has provided domain registration services for me personally as well as customers in the past looking for a safe, simple domain registrar with no tricks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that I am not pushed to buy anything other than an ip and registration. Other companies make it hard to even publish your site without their site builder or a consultation etc. Register also has a partner agreement where you can become a reseller. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is not a lot of help outside of resetting the server the ip is connected to. So any Ldap errors etc will all be handled through you . Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Register also has a user friendly site if someone wants to take over the domain you are reselling. The customer end is called web.com and they have a DIY site builder. It's not adobe but its something. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We are able to resell domains and even websites that we have built where someone like a realtor can just own the domain and we do the maintenance since this comes with none. It isn't even an option. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

For a layman, building a website may seem to be quite a challenging job! With register.com, the process not only got simpler, but also helped me learn and understand the elements of a good website. It has some unmatchable qualities like an amazing array of templates to choose from, customization-friendly mobile templates and an ease to keep a track of all of them in one go. Premium version also fetch us a bank of supported features like emails, live chat on phone and more options.

Also, the major issue of web hosting becomes so hassle-free with them! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One of the major concern's I felt was an after-service of updation of my website. Also, the pricing is little at the higher side as compared to the well-marketed service providers such as GoDaddy and likes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go for it, your bucks will fetch you amazing experience with a slight hazards. That anyway is a part of any portal! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

One of my friend's existing blog crashed due to some tad-inefficiency of the backend. This not only helped me to give her a guide to fix the same, but also helped me to save few extra bucks for my company's blog as well. (Getting it fixed from outside surely had an exorbitant amount with it.) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The website has a great collection of design templates especially the ones that are mobile oriented are really helpful. The site is pretty much a good experience for a user in terms of UX/UI. Along with super easy DNS settings, a customer support and a great look and feel, its kind of the best in the market. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The stupid lag in page loads is very very frustrating and kills all the productivity goals you had for the day. I happened twice with us but that can be ignored given the general page lag is minimal. Another thing I dislike about register.com is that the templates cannot be customized to my specifications. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is the best thing the market has yet to offer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

User friendly website. Professional assistance from web.com helped me build a good site! It has good executed and easy to use online store. Prices are cheap compared to other websites. If you want to build a personal, web.com has enough tools to allow you to build a pretty decent website. web.com has 450 mobile-optimized design templates to choose from, which is a fairly large collection. When it comes to customizing mobile templates, the options that web.com provides are actually a lot more than what other websites builders provide. If you subsribe to premium version then you get verity of support like email, live chart and phone. The support team is very skilled and are really helpful in what you would like to design. The website also provides free hosting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

My complaint is that there can be times fairly frequently where you cannot log in. This is the only problem I have had with it, and it is a pain when I need to log in to update my website, because I can't.

web.com does not allow you the flexibility to edit the CSS and HTML of the templates. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are a small business or plan on having an online shop, Web.com is a website builder you should consider. If you want to keep your domain then do not pay amount after your last day. They will sell the domain to some other customers or ask higher amount from you. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

- The best, user friendly website builder.

- User Interface is attractive and editing the website is very easy by readily drag and drop the modules (Pictures, Slides, Files).

- Compared to other website builders (Wix/ squarespace), Web.com is simple and easy to learn.

- Other notable features like integrating membership function, group Email, restricting the view of the website (Public/ Private/ Members).

- Availability of app store of web.com makes the work smoother just by suggesting the required tools and features required.

- It is fast, flexible, inbuilt testing tools improve the quality of our website.

- Good Community support Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

- Website loading time for publisher is normal where as it will hang or slow down in case of large visitors.

- We get to choose only inbuilt testing tools all the time, free trial period of other good tools is not given so that we can test on free tool and decide weather to use that particular tool or not.

- Again with the web templates we should satisfy with what they provide (inbuilt) and we cannot modify their code according to our requirement.

- There are other website domain ( Weebly / Jimdo ) available with cheaper price and better performance than Web.com. It is confined only for a small business. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you plan to limit yourself for a small industry like E-Commerce or as a non-profit organisation I strongly recommend web.com Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Pretty standard offerings on domain name registrations and several website hosting packages. They do offer a few international top-level domains that are not as available on godaddy. They seem to have reasonable support Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Pricey relative to alternatives!! $35 for 1 yr is nearly $20 more than godaddy for the same period!

Many generic top level domain names not supported. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try out godaddy or other options unless you are looking for something specific from register.com. I've used register.com for domain name registration at a prior company -- it was beneficial to choose a 3-yr term to get some savings. Also, they offer private whois registration so that your info isn't exposed broadly -- highly recommended Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
