DNS and domain registration services generally suck. GoDaddy people hunt elephants. Hover is okay, but has mediocre customer service (personal experience) and bad web interface (objective truth). There’s tons of bad domain registrars out there. But amongst them, there are people that know their shit and know it well, and they don’t try to scam or bullshit you.
I own a couple of domains, and amongst them is
piotrkazmierczak.com used to be my primary email domain, but recently more and more often I have to spell my email address to people, and if it’s Dutch people I’m talking to, and my email is in
piotrkazmierczak.com domain, things aren’t as smooth as they should be. So I intended to simplify things, and bought
piotr.is, which I now use as my primary domain. It’s shorter, simpler, better. And it’s Icelandic.
