Moniker.com has been one of the funkiest domain registars I have ever dealt with. First off, from day one – I faced like a 5-6 day response window for my support tickets. Back in those days, Monte used to hangout at the forums & an instant PM got him on the horn or got my […]

Backorder Partner Domain Registrars = Rubbish

I am here to De-Myth a very popular Myth that Partner Registrars will catch your expiring domains through their network. Weather it be snapnames, pool or namejet..
