I think I have it all the way I want them for now , just waiting on one more to update over the next few hours. It been fun learning what different providers can do and what they are over charging for. You would be amazed as to what they think they can get away with.
Network Solutions is again the most expensive ( a reminder to self ) and if you burp while on they’re site I think they charge you for it. They have a nice “domain backorder” scam going on, I left the account and the domain in it just expire.
The ipage account is great for sites that don’t get a lot of traffic and in time they might get some new servers and a faster connection. The difference from the ipage site to WordPress site was 10ms,that’s a lot when there is high demand.
As for GoDaddy I’m still debating on staying, they do work with Microsoft Exchange well but its easy to edit the records in WP also.
Getting domain email seems to be the biggest pain in the ass ( meaning expensive ).
