Hello and Happy New Year everyone! Hope you had a great holiday season

Can’t believe I am saying this but while 2021 is still less than two weeks old I am already looking forward to 2022.

After more than twenty years the time has come for me to leave my domain name registrar.

I am looking for a new registrar with bulk tools and of course pricing

I would appreciate any recommendations

Please feel free to reach out with suggestions

Info and intros appreciated

Thanks

Primarily .ca or other extensions as well?

As much as it pains me to say this...

I have discount club at godaddy and so far no other registrar has been able to match their bulk tools. When you have thousands of domains to manage there is nothing like godaddy. One click and I can download a spreadsheet with all my transfer codes, expiries etc. I can then manipulate the data any way I like. I can select hundreds of domains to renew at once. I sort in order of expiry, select the ones I wish to renew and bam it is done.


I hear UniRegistry has good bulk tools too.


If you have less than 100 domains then most any registrar will do and you can go bargain shopping. I cannot afford to do that, after trying canspace and whc I realize I spend so much time doing tasks that I can do in seconds on godaddy.


I hate that I am tied to godaddy because they are the ones kicking domains off their servers so I need to wait and see what Epik has in store when they finalize their .ca strategy.


[notify]epik[/notify] Rob Monster is a member here and hopefully he can explain his bulk tools.


WHC is the most progressive and with the purchase of sibername they would make our best champion but they are so far lacking with bulk tools that anyone with even over 10 doamins would have a hard time trying to complete multiple tasks.

This was double posted one and I left a link in the trusted section.

I figured it was a great discussion to have on the board so I made the choice to remove the private one.

[notify]DomainTrader[/notify] I hope that is ok, if needed please open another private discussion.

Nobody can beat canspace for just .ca

$10.95 Register
$10.95 Renewals

Bulk tools are mediocre but tons above whc. (unfortunately)

Always plus tax

Mind you WHC said they would match that for our members but at this point their control panel is so convoluted I cannot see myself using it.

WHC has better registration prices on sale but the renewals hurt unless you tell them you are a member here.

I am holding out for Epik or WHC to come aboard with some decent bulk tools.

Hi there,

I can confirm that Epik has the most powerful tools that can be offered under one roof. Is there any specific tool that needs to be discussed here? Let me know and I'll be happy to provide further information.
Do you already have any account with us?

We do provide a module to integrate Epik with you through WHMCS (if that make things easier to manage in bulk with your clients. Assuming you're a reseller, of course). Let me know if you'd like to explore this option further.

As for .CA pricing and services, we're currently on our way to obtain Canadian accreditation, and it'll make things 100 times easier and faster once we have that fully integrated. We'll look into pricing, and we'll work to beat competition.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks,

Hello Sufyan

I have updated your profile to representative status which removes a lot of the limitations for you and lists you as an Epik Representative.

Thank you for joining! *THUMBSUP*

We’re almost there!

I’ve just sent another follow-up to our dev team to check the status of launching. I expect ALL.CA to be online by the end of this month (assuming a smooth QA).

I’ll keep you guys posted once we’re LIVE!

Welcome to the forum [notify]SufyanAlani[/notify]

Looking forward in the launch of all.ca. Can you tell us what all.ca will be all (pun intended) about? Such as Marketplace listings or anything of that nature?
