I don't know about tucows services because not used them, but enom.com was great, more about:

  • Tucows! This brings me memories! I used to use tucows for shareware and freeware software back in late '90s! Great recourse, then! Haven't use them for ages!

    I use OpenSRS who are with Tucows, and use Enom too.

    Domainbox recently got snapped up by GoDaddy, I use both of those.

    It'd seem consolidation is on the cards.

    I think 90% of domain resellers on WHMCS use ENOM though the WHMCS partner program thingy, I wonder is Tucows is about to punch a cow sized hole in WHMCS's revenue like HP did to Dell when they bought some of their biggest customers.

    Tucows. The only registrar I've seen cause more outages than enom. Fitting :)

    Tucows usurping eNom in 2017 only proves how long roaches can live without a head.

    ...but enough about Network Solutions.

  • I got dumped over to tucows when some other registrar shut down. They are annoying and scammy though I guess the rest of them are too. I've been slowly migrating, mostly to namesilo.

    Let's see what companies and whole niches in the domain related industry practice money grabbing, shady, privacy invading and overall dirty tactics:

    • ICANN
    • Domain registrars (GoDaddy, Network Solutions, etc.)
    • Domain squatters (as a whole)
    • G$$gle ("do no evil" ha)
    • SEO companies (as a whole)
    • Domain auctioneers

    Yeah. Seems like you are right.

  • Didn't Namecheap use eNom for domain registrations?

    Used to but they got ICANN registrar status now.

  • yahoo probably uses tucows for domain registration (yahoo small business).

  • default said: Didn't Namecheap use eNom for domain registrations?

    They still do.

    They've had ICANN accreditation for years, but never actually used it.

  • tucow offer higher prices than enom ( for reseller). Hope enom will still work as independent

    tucows is way earlier than enom back then in the late 90s, we downloaded software from tucows using a modem. Browsing tucows then is like browsing Amazon today. :)

    FWIW I used Hover.com, owned by Tucows, and they were good.

  • Also be assured that you will not see any immediate changes.

    So, service as normal.

    Really? Because I've checked my domain whois and it says Namecheap for domain registrar, not eNom.

    Which domain is that? Things could have changed in the last 5-6 months, but before that they were definitely still using eNom (when I last transferred a domain to them, it was under eNom.)

    I just checked one of my domains with them (registered black friday) and it says enom. This was a .org if that matters.
