Got a question, hope someone can answer... I want my own website: should I host with "123" or "yahoo small business"? Many thanks for any response. Second question.. Everyone is always saying only to do a whois at moniker, because the others will sell your queries. How do we know moniker is safe?..

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an useful answer. You should email the people at 123 reg as they probably know..

Moniker rocks, hundreds of names there and not a problem. Never had a name stolen and never had the names that I have checked being stalked...

Comment #2

I had a couple names taken from me at Namecheap. It really blew me away. Now after reading this thread I will start using Moniker. Thanks for the info guys...

Comment #3

Any way, although most of my names are elsewhere, I only use Moniker for whois, nowhere else...

Comment #4

Moniker is the best, i'm slowing moving my whole portfolio there..

Comment #5

Yeah I had names stolen at both 123 reg and Namecheap. It didn't take me long to figure moniker was tight on name slips. Thats probably one of the most frustrating things =\...

Comment #6

Please do not make the same mistake I did with Moniker. Do not blindly trust any registrar to do the right thing. Double check all transactions and save all your emails...

Comment #7

Moniker answers the phone...and those who answer actually truly know what they are doing. I called once at 11:30pm on a Saturday because something didn't look right and the nice man who answered on one ring and helped me out happened to be Monte...

Comment #8

As has already been stated, Moniker is simply the best. I highly doubt they sell searches.. I trust Monte.

I've been using them for nearly a year now and I've had 0 problems...

Comment #9

I can't speak for Moniker but all whois searches done at are completely confidential and are not logged or sold..

We also have 'never lost a domain'..

Comment #10

As my domains near renewal dates at other registrars, I collectively move them to Moniker. Not one problem at Moniker, prompt, reliable and knowledgeable CS staff and last but not least, special NP pricing and some other features that I welcome very much..

Too bad that Moniker doesn't match prices from other registrars.... it would make the transition of .TV domains a lot more useful for me....


Comment #11

I have few hundred domains with Moniker and by far the best registrar I have ever dealt with...

Comment #12

Registers are generally as safe as your email & username / password combos..

If your email is compromised you're screwed regardless where your name is registered..

For username / passwords the higher the bit strength the better...

Comment #13

I have hundreds of domains with Moniker, and never had any problem with queries as well...

Comment #14

Not meaning to put down Moniker in any way because I otherwise have good.

Experiences with them, but I agree with that...
