Thread: Fastest Domain Name Registrar
02-25-2003, 03:51 PM #1northwindGuest
What is the fastest domain registrar, namecheap usually takes less then 12 hours but what I heard theres faster, =).
Just need to know so I can see what their services are.

12 hours should be fast enough
and also, its not just the registration
you gotta wait for propagation for the domain once it is setup which can take upto 72 hours.
to register all my domains i used ukhosts.com but they take about 2 days

Are you gusy talking about domain transfer?
02-25-2003, 05:01 PM #4matt2kjonesGuest
no just the general setup time of a domain.
all im saying, that regardless of the time it takes for the domain to be registered, you still gotta wait for all the isps to pick up on that domain, which is called propagation, and can take upto 72 hours.
12 hours for registration is extremely fast i feel, and soudns like the provide a good services if they get you registered that quickly
Ukhosts.com do provide good service, i have used them for both of my domains, and thier support is also good. Just gotta wait a couple of days for the registration to go through tho

I'm not a reseller but I use Namecheap almost exclusively now. Using either credit card or paypal, registration is almost instant - I submit payment and an email appears with registration details and I can manage my domain immediately. Had one hiccup recently but Richard K. fixed that up no problems.

I feel 12 hours is fairly fast as well, I know a few people where it takes close to 2 days for the domain to proprogate.
Hmm.. just wondering if there is anything faster.

most of the registrar i think can do it almost immediately but you still have to wait 12 hours for the dns to be resolved.
