Netfirms Has Been Sold

I don’t know folks, but when a company gets acquired by a bigger one all hell breaks loose. I just hope this isn’t the case as I’ve been with Netfirms for years now, and seriously would like to continue with them.

Just got an email this morning with the following, you can just read it here already.

I only use Netfirms for domain management, tried their host sometime ago but wasn’t satisfied, it was horrible. I’ve continued to use Netfirms for domain management because of their platform (I love their proprietary management panel), setup of any sort is a breeze, dns management is so cool and makes it look like a child’s play, and their overall customer service is very responsive and helpful.

I just hope this continues with Endurance group or whatever.

If you use Netfirms, be sure to be on the look out during this their “transition period” as they termed it to avoid service disruption.

    Good day Mr David,
    I want to register my domains which domain registrar do I now make use of following the sales of netfirms. Also the free web host in the manual (Domain Name Flipping Success) isnt opening, but I carried out a Google search and found the following freewebhost http://www.000webhost.com and http://www.hos1free.com. Could you help in accessing them or do you have a better recommendation.
    Thanks waiting for your favorable response

      Hey Gospel, both web hosts are pretty much OK if you don’t want to go the ‘paid’ route.

      The sale of Netfirms didn’t affect any of their services, most of my domains are still with them.

      Cheers!

    The new endurance group is horrible. They downgraded everyones accounts. We used to be able to make an email address or two for each domain we owned now we can have one per account. Meaning if you have 20 domains parked in your account you can have only ONE email address made for it. They are charging for domain privacy which used to be FREE too.

      I haven’t noticed any of those, but I’m definitely moving my domains very soon. I knew it was going to turn out bad, it’s always about the money.
