Domain Registration And Hosting With Different Companies?

Question

Hi everyone, I am currently using NAMECHEAP for my hosting as well as my domain registration.
SO FAR I haven’t had any trouble out of them. Support is live chat (only thing I am not fond of). I started the 2nd year with them and now wondering if I could be doing better.
Thanks for any input in advance.

  1. I recommend using separate vendors for your DOMAIN registration and your hosting. That way, if you get into a dispute with your hosting provider you can just move your site to another host and change the DNS to point to the new host.

    This is real life: it happened to me. Back when I had my very first ever website, I had the domain registration and the hosting both with one company, and then I got into a dispute with that company.

  2. My theory is that if everything is working great, speed is great, support is good, the price is right and your Website is constantly available and working well then don’t change a thing.

    I once had a great hosting service, but started having major issues with their customer support/service. So I switched and was in Heaven. But a few years later that company got acquired by the one I left, so I’m back to where I started from. The point is that I had found a service that was good in all the important areas and leaving for something potentially better was never an option. Now that I’m back where I started, I need to regroup and see if it is worth it to leave over customer service/support while everything else is excellent.
