Dotster provides not only web hosting but domain name registration. Having about three million domains registered makes Dotster a one of the biggest ICANN-accredited registrars. The company was formed in 2000 and claims to be one of the first to offer consumers discounted pricing.
Dotster domain registrations include free domain management services, free parking, free SpamShield, free TransferLock, and free ownership transfers. Customers can also add features like privacy protection, e-mail services, SSL certificates and even web design services. One important aspect to note is that the Dotster offers dedicated support from a domestic customer care center located in Washington state, USA.
