... is not intuitive at all.

With most registrars, you just find the Forwarding option, input the URL and you're live within a few minutes.

With Sibername you have to know to also input the Sibername nameservers on a separate screen (and, know what those nameservers are). No problem though: Just ping support to figure that all out, and they'll input the nameservers for you -- and then you'll wait... and wait... and wonder why things aren't propagating properly. Then you'll go into the DNS settings yourself - where they DO tell you what nameservers to use (which happen to be different from what Support inputted earlier). Update the nameservers to the real ones.

Get through all that and then you're good to go.

I found it a bit convoluted as well, for some reason I thought it was easier before WHC took over.

At one point is was automated to add the Siber nameservers on each new domain, but they changed that to a default of "blank".
 
Yes that was how it was…don’t know what the logic was to change that *DONT_KNOW* ]:->

I've been a Siber customer for a long time, mostly having names there won at TBR. So I'm used to the extra steps to URL forward, but with a lot of names it would be a pain.

On the plus side, the url forwarding is free, they send you Auth codes automatically, you can unlock domains yourself, and they are one of the best at winning TBR names. Some of those you'd expect to be that way, but not all registrars are like that. If their renewal fees were lower I'd keep more names there.
