    Where is a good place to buy a cheap, secure and reputable domain name? Any tips? I don't need hosting, but if that is bundled in that is nice.

    Yahoo.. $50 bucks for 5 years(i think its unlimited, 9.99 per year for first session. First session = initial purchase).
    Godaddy is $14 per year unlimited. Godaddy charges more for a .ORG address, Yahoo doesn't.

    GoDaddy is by far the best for registration, management tools, etc. I have probably ~40 domains thru them and they've always been reliable and easy to work with.

    I would ask at my local quick oil change place. Make sure you go to one where almost nobody speaks English.

    So is Yahoo. Billing address, contact info, credit card number. Scroll through additional services, continue scrolling, continue, select Private Registration. Hit Submit. icon_razz.gif

    I've got a few domains, and I've used cleverdot.com. $7.77 a year, and pretty easy to deal with. I buy them for 5 years so I don't have to renew every year.

    GoDaddy all the way. I own over 40 domains and they are all registered through GoDaddy. If I ever have questions, they have great technical support.

    i always go with godaddy, too.

    search for "godaddy codes" to get coupons for a percentage off of your order.

    network solutions is also pretty good.

    Godaddy is cheap and reliable.

    You can get one for free from Microsoft if you sign up for http://smallbusiness.officelive.com/, although you may not be able to move it elsewhere later, they say:

    If you signed up on or after February 11, 2008, your domain name is free for the first year, then you will be charged $14.95 annually at renewal thereafter. Microsoft will automatically renew your domain name for you each year unless the domain name is canceled prior to the renewal date.

    Google also sells domains with google apps:

    One year registration costs $10 and includes these benefits at no additional cost:
    Google Apps Standard Edition pre-configured for your domain, including Google Sites and Gmail for custom email addresses.
    Full DNS control and management
    Private registration to protect your personal information
    Domain locking to protect you from unauthorized domain transfers

    I definitely recommend GoDaddy. Excellent service and not a bad price either!
