Please, please, please – if you haven’t done so yet, get the hell away from NetSol. I’ve had great luck in the past with Dotster, and I’m currently using GoDaddy for pretty much everything. I’m sure there’s some affiliate-linking I could use there, but I won’t. Just switch, now, before your domain is lost, suspended, accidentally handed to someone else, etc.
