Fine Hosting Service for Over 16 Years

Through the years, DirectNIC has provided us excellent service, support and pricing for hosting and domain registration. I have had no reason to look for an alternate hosting provider – albeit, we only have a few modest sites... More .
Access and control of some features has become more convoluted in the past few years. Thusly, I might not recommend DirectNic hosting to a complete novice, but if one is minimally cognizant of web development; then all the standard tools are available.
After using other registrars (and being beat over the head with the hard sell) I've moved all our domains to the civility of DirectNic and neever looked back.
In the long run – it would be hard to be more pleased with a tech company.

I had the most frustrating time with the support.

Please... For your own Good. Please do not get THE service with DIRECTNIC.
