    I started out using network solutions but have 
changed over to using joker. I prefer the model 
that the registrar of my domain names is __NOT__ 
the same enterprise as that which hosts my stuff 
(and mostly I host my stuff, but I've seen a lot 
of people who are trapped into a hosting service 
because they can't move their domain names to 
another registrar--e.g. the person who set things 
up is no longer available and the registrar 
refuses to work with anyone not currently named 
in their account records).
