The major VeriSign references were
removed in 2009, since VeriSign no longer owns NetSol, and hasn't for a while.
And for all I know, NetSol may no longer be akin to organized crime, so this page is mostly for historical purposes, as I'm not currently interested in keeping it updated.
Need to register a domain name?
The InterNIC Accredited Registrar Directory
Do to increasing distaste for GoDaddy, I currently use Dynadot,
and have been very happy with them.
And hey! They now have a referral program, so if you click that link and give them money then I get account credit! Here's a link without the referral code though, in case such things are distasteful.
Need a web host?
for (hopefully) impartial web host ratings...
but be aware that most ratings sites get money either directly or indirectly from the major hosting companies.
I had excellent results with a more expensive specialty-niche hosts, httpme.com and ServInt. Didn't like their cost/disk space, so I currently use Spry for a VPS account. If you don't know what VPS is, you'd want to look at their shared hosting instead. I haven't used it though, and don't know if there are better options out there.
i am not affiliated with the above companies in any way other than being a customer
