I wonder how people arrange there domain name and hoster(s)

Do you have your domain name at your hosting provider or do you manage them else where?

I have it separate. In the past i had all my domain names at yahoo (until they started charging 34 dollars) now i have them all at directnic.

Hosting i do with hostgator.

By doing this i think that i can move my stuff around when ever i want witch gives me more flexibility.

Maybe you wonder why i do this. Once i had a domain name and hosting with one provider but they got a hacker attack with the result that my site was down for a week. Now i could just restart my site somewhere else if needed.

What are your thoughts on this?

We have ours separate also, George... not for any particular reason, other than it's just turned out that way. Domains with eNom, hosting with UKDedicated Ltd.

Even when you had your domain name and hosting with one provider, it should have still been possible to move the domain after the attack, though... no?

Paul yes it should be possible i would think.

But in this case it ended up that i could not get it out while they where dealing with there problems so after that i got it moved and latter stopped using there services for anything.

Right, I understand. I wondered if that might be the case.

Mine are in different places for the most part and not by design either. Some domains are with Lime Domains, GoDaddy, Namecheap. Hosting with Hostgator, Blogger, and Rackspace. Been wanting to consolidate all of these in one or two providers but not sure if that's a good idea considering the vulnerability of these providers.

I have a virtual server based on Linux, and I buy my domain in the same company, its more easy but sometimes I buy domain on others registars because they offers better promotion... so i redirect dns.

We find it is about 50:50 with our customers. About half like to keep their registration and hosting together and the other half like to keep them managed separately.

I use name.com for domains and some smaller companies for hosting. Usually when you buy them separately you get them cheaper than if you buy both hosting and domains from same company.

All of ours with Fasthosts. Have been for years and no major problems. Apart from when you need to call them and you get transferred somewhere abroad. But that's normal now right? Laughing

Domains with hosting provider usually. Have bought the occasional one elsewhere when there are special offers on but it's not usually worth the hassle. Have also found internet.bs good when buying a few domains as they are very cheap and easy to use, whereas someone like GoDaddy is a big hassle (adding on useless extras).
