Can anybody recommend a ? I wish to purchase a domain and for a long time, preferably indefinitely.

I don't want to spend much money, and I don't want other people to be able to easily nick the domain, but I do want to be able to register subdomains without paying more money.

I also don't care what the name itself actually is.

Any suggestions?

@murph Cool! That'll be on my list of "registrars who don't scam their customers".

Anything it's particularly good at? Any catches?

@wizzwizz4 I haven't seen any catches. As far as what they're good at, I remember when I was originally shopping around there was a really big deal about registrars taking your money, and registering the domains for themselves, not really transferring it to you. I don't recall all the details, but their terms of service seemed better. Currently, they do, however, work to make it easy to use your domain with Fastmail, which was a nice surprise when I switched away from gmail.

@wizzwizz4
I use Namecheap and I have a subdomain and dynamic DNS for 99 cents a year. 6-9 digit numbers @ .xyz are the cheapest.

@wizzwizz4
I've only created one so far, but I'm fairly certain they don't charge extra for multiple subdomains.

@wizzwizz4 Most of us in the States use GoDaddy.com. I think there's one something like cheapsites
