We host as many of our domain names with www.iwantmyname.com. The first reason was that it was a no-nonsense interface and process. And if you have a question, the small team answers quickly. (And it is in the same timezone). And somehow it felt like they did it the right way.
Digging a bit deeper, it becomes clear that that no-nonsense interface, process and handling questions personally and quickly comes from a belief: do the right thing.
It seems so logical, but it is strange in the Domain name world. Because at iwantmyname they will NOT:
- Place ads or parking pages on unused domains
- Take part in secondary market activities such as auctions or premium names
- Prevent you from transferring a domain away
- Do domain front-running with your domain searches
- Publish or sell expiring domain lists
- Register your domains in their name
- Annoy you with upsells or other unwanted offers
- Every domain registered with us supports a global aid initiative.
I like how it all comes back round: When we help our clients, for instance in Bali, with a website, and we register the domain with iwantmyname. Our customer directly supports training students and farmers in the art of sustainable permaculture.
