LifeHacker is currently running a poll, asking readers to vote for their favorite domain name registrar. When the poll was last run in 2010, the winning domain registrar was Namecheap. The poll will close this year at 6am on Tuesday, so you should vote now.
There were only 9,142 votes cast in the 2010 poll, and there are already 11,217 votes in this year’s edition. I think social media has probably played a roll in this year’s voting. In fact, Namecheap is even offering a special promotion via Twitter if it’s voted the best registrar and Name.com is retweeting comments from customers who voted for them.
The five finalists (chosen by readers) include:
One interesting aspect of the vote is that LifeHacker isn’t hiding the vote totals. At the moment, Hover is the leading vote getter, followed by Name.com.
The only thing on the line here is pride, and likely additional business brought on by the added exposure. Vote for your favorite domain registrar today – I am sure each would appreciate your support.
PS: My vote is for Name.com because the company has been a sponsor of my blog for a few years, and the people at the company really seem to care about their customers.
