For the longest time I have been registering my domains at Hover and loved. I can’t fault Hover however they are not cheap.
Recently I started to move my domains over to NameCheap for 1 reason – price. NameCheap is $11 for a .com as opposed to $15 at Hover. $4 per year is not a lot for 1 or 2 domains but when you are renewing in excess of 60 domains this adds up very quickly. In total the move is going to save me around about $200 per year.
That is not the only reason however, Hover only provide support between 8am and 11pm Eastern Standard Time. As a UK based business this is not idea. I have a lot of customers domains with them and if I need to get hold some somebody I can’t – and you do need to use support for a lot of things that can’t be done in the control panel.
Not only do I save money but for all new domains you can buy a matching SSL for as little as $2 for the first year. Something this is a bargain as I often need SSL certificates with my new domains.
