I had been with them for years. Everything worked fine, but the latest price hike from $9 to $14.95 is very sneaky. The stupid thing is that people with more than a few domains are going to be the ones that leave first. Way to drive your customers away! I've left for namecheap.com.

Last time they raised their rates by 50 cents I was warned numerous time by email...

I just logged into my account to make some changes/increase time and shockeroo, $14.95 new rate!

WOW!

They sent me ZERO warning.
My trust in them went to ZERO.

Found much cheaper registrar, already in process of transferring now...

Check their stats above, looks like the rats are all fleeing the ship...

Been loyal to Namesecure for about 10 years. They used to be cheap, somewhat reliable (uptime not the greatest) until I started using email & hosting for business purposes. But I stuck with them.

Namesecure recently did a major upgrade to their backend, adding tons of new control & functionality.

The result, my Wordpress sites slowed to a crawl & Greymatter sites crashed.

The final insult came when they raised their prices from $8.95 to $14.95 for yearly domain renewals.

I am in the process of transferring ALL DOMAINS & HOSTING to Godaddy.com

Only using them as registrars for 50+ domains. Have had few interactions with CS over the years, but guess I've had a decent experience. HOWEVER, without any notice they recently (around Oct/Nov 2010) jacked the yearly domain price from 9.45 to 14.95 - a neat 58% increase. I will be taking each domain elsewhere as they come up for renewal.

A very buggy company. Recently they doubled their rates for domain name renewals, with no notice to clients. I hold about 100 domain names with them.

Their Customer Service is terrible. Right now I am in a holding pattern on a Customer Service call 34 minutes and counting. This month they have upgraded their services and my Server IP Address has been changed 3 times. My Password and User Name were also changed so I could not access my account.

I am seriously considering moving all my domains to another company who has a much better policy regarding Customer Service and response to known or caused problems.

At this point, especially with their domain name renewal prices of $14.95 I would not recommend them to anyone.

Avoid namesecure like the plague. Zero customer support and even when you go eventually get hold of someone they don't do what they say they will. If you want the most annoying business relationship that you will ever have then please sign up with namesecure, you won't be disappointed. They're not satisfied until you're not satisfied.

Easy, cheap, and very low hassle. Very low key...you don't pay for millions in advertising. I've never had problems with anything in the many years I've had them.

These folks do not upgrade PHP efficiently, no configurable FTP options, no cron, a very limited offering. Better off going to something like HostMonster. I was a Namesecure customer for 2 years...moving from them, entirely.
