Well I finally have made the decision to buy myself a domain name. The reason being is that I am am going to start University this Fall and would like a place to put up my content, portfolio, work, etc.
Now I am looking for a top level domain registrar, that is Verisign accredited (the reason being that all .com and .net go through them).
As for regards to name servers I will be using Hurricane Electric's
DNS name servers as they also provide me with IPv6 tunnel.
Now I would preferably have a .com rather than a .net as it is easier to remember.
Does anybody have any good registrars you would suggest? It must be US based company.
I am basically looking for the best bang for the buck.
Ps: GoDaddy is out of the question...
Just in case anyone is wondering I would be hosting this website myself at my house, I also have my ISPs approval under the Acceptable Use Policy as I am not using it for commercial use (student/academic purposes only).
Is there anything in particular I should watch out or pay attention to in the process of buying my domain name?
