Expert Register.com Review 2018

Overview

Register.com is one of the premier providers of domain name registration, web site building tools, shared and WordPress hosting. The service specialized in providing all of their customers with the tools needed for building and publishing their very own WordPress-based site, including easy to use control panels and a generous resource allotment.

Features

Register.com provides its users with an all-included domain registration/website building/site publishing, all-encompassing service for relatively affordable prices, which include WordPress compatible hosting solutions, as well as advanced security measures such as private domain protection and wildcard SSL certificates.

In addition to its list of offered hosting and site building tools, Register.com also provides its customers with advanced domain registration capabilities including private domain protection, wildcard SSL certificates, bulk registration, unlimited data transfer and domain transfer.

Plans

Signing up for Register.com’s hosting services depends on whether or not you already have a domain of your very own. Users who already have a domain will be able to transfer said domain for free onto Register.com’s servers, while users who do not have a previously owned domain name will be required to choose one and select a hosting plan before they can begin the design and creation of their site. All Register.com plans include one free domain name upon signup, as well as free website building tools, 1-click WordPress installations and 24/7 support.

Ease of Use

Though the offered control panels are rather intuitive and are fully integratable with WordPress, making controlling and managing your site’s construction relatively uncomplicated, the website’s interface itself is rather hard to navigate, and can get rather confusing for new customers.

Customer Support

There have been reports that Register.com has not been able to meet its 99.99% server uptime guarantee, and users have experienced continued, intermitted, server downtime, a fact which could prove to be increasingly inconvenient for business or retail –oriented sites. Customer support, although indeed available 24/7, prove themselves as incapable of successfully addressing this issue.
