Porkbun, domain name registrar

Some of you have inquired about domain name registrars. Recently, I came across Porkbun (https://www.porkbun.com). It was founded in 2014 and is probably the least-expensive registrar.

Here's a good review of Porkbun:

It could be an exciting player in the domain name arena.

Another excellent and inexpensive registrar is NameSilo - https://www.namesilo.com/

I agree. I use NameSilo and "highly" recommend it.

I have used Namesilo for several years and I recently began using Porkbun with a domain. Both have been very good so far, with Porkbun taking a slight edge on everyday pricing while Namesilo runs regular special offers that can garner you a cheap year or two. I would rate Porkbun's interface as more contemporary and generally easier to understand. Namesilo has the ability to memorize DNS settings and save them as a template for adding to other domains, which I find very useful. I used Porkbun's email customer service and was answered promptly and accurately. For me, them being located in a time zone three hours to my west means I can contact them during regular business hours (for them) but after work for me, which makes things easier and quicker.

Has anyone else here used Porkbun? If so, please describe your experience with the registrar. If you have used it, but have moved away from it, why did you do so?

ICANN accredited. Free WHOIS privacy, and a free Weebly-enabled site builder. Looks good. Weebly has a very good reputation in free webhosting. 2 USD per month mailbox hosting. Not sure though how much webspace and inbox storage you get?

.art domains sales?! I didn't know .art extention went live
.email is also having a sales with less than 4 USD for the first year.

8.84 USD per year for .com, that's quite below average indeed.
9.78 USD per year for .net

Very interesting indeed :-) Pity they don't offer any "European" extentions as yet (no .eu, .co.uk, .de, ...) ; would be extremely interesting if they'd include some of those in the offer.

The little pig on the front page looks so cute :-)
