||DomainBank, DomainPeople, Secura - single applicant...
I think these 3 are offering a credible system.|
They say they only take a single
applicant (and popular names come up as unavailable if you try them).
In the case
of DomainPeople they seem to put an "authorisation" on your card, and actually charge
a 30% fee (refundable if you don't get the name). It's possible DomainBank do too
- I haven't checked to see.
Secura seem much more laid back. With my .info requests
at Landrush, they didn't charge me anything, and only charged my credit card about
6 weeks AFTER my name had come up in the WHOIS!
With the .biz names, I don't really
like this ending, so I've applied for ONE name I have a mild interest in. That's
why I'm prepared to risk the "authorisation" freezing up some of my credit facility
on my card - because I'm only playing for small sums.
I wouldn't personally apply
for large numbers of names, for fear of finding hundreds of dollars "frozen" by authorisations.
the three I listed above are the ones I've chosen out of the registrars mentioned
so far on this forum.
I got four really good .info names with Secura in the Landrush,
and I'm hoping they will prove good again.
