This purely off-topic. I posted on bitcointalk.org simply because I'm deeply associated with Bitcoin, and nothing else.

I have launched the Alpha version of NameTerrific to a small group of people (including you). Currently it's already production-ready, so you can really register or transfer your domain names to NameTerrific and enjoy the cool Cloud-based DNS!

Currently only PayPal is supported (I know we all hate it, but there isn't a choice at the moment). Your feedback is definitely welcome!

EDIT:

I forgot the link!

https://www.nameterrific.com/

EDIT 2:

If you want to order a domain by Bitcoin. Just generate an invoice, and then PM me with your invoice number. I'll give you a Bitcoin address for you to pay. :-D

EDIT 3:

Bitcoin payment is now automated. Comes with discounted exchange rates!

Huh

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.
If BTC became the global currency & money supply = 100 Trillion then ⊅1.00 BTC = $4,761,904.76.

A registrar with a built-in Route 53 frontend. That's actually pretty cool.

NameTerrific doesn't suck like everyone else. And the prices are not insane.

Too bad. I wanted to accept Bitcoin but I'm applying for a merchant account at the moment and the bank doesn't seem to like it. There's only one bank for me to choose from.

This is a mainstream product so Bitcoin support has to be dropped. :-(

So even a merchant service provider (paysius, bit-pay) won't make your bank happy? You don't actually ever touch the coins yourself with an MSP. Also fees, but PP charges them too.

Got as far as the checkout but when trying to create an account it keeps telling me "Invalid email or password".

Sad

You should click the "Sign Up" link to create a new account.

Sorry for the confusion, I'll definitely improve the UI.

Not insane but still pretty high.

Are you an accredited registrar or are you a reseller for another registrar?

EDIT: From a WHOIS query it looks like its a reseller.

NameTerrific is a reseller of eNom.

The price is cheaper than separate services. Route 53 charges you at least $0.5/month, and that's already $6 a year! With NameTerrific, it's included (with 500k free queries).

It's definitely worth it to use the cloud-based DNS.

Oh - okay - didn't notice that - got through now but also didn't realise you are only taking PP at the moment (should have read the OP more carefully).

By strange coincidence I decided to close my PP account (which I hadn't used for years anyway) just recently and am not planning to reopen it.

Anyway I've placed an order which hopefully you can process for me when your direct CC processing comes online.

I have started working on another project (not Bitcoin-related) that is going to make a little difference on the Internet

the best way to be known in the Internet industry is to build products that save people time, money and headaches.

is this that project?

You don't actually ever touch the coins yourself with an MSP.

Or sell egiftcodes at least so that some other vendor (e.g., SpendBitcoins.com, BTCBuy.info, GiftCoin.net ) can sell them.

Well, you don't have to reopen your PayPal account. Just choose "Don't have a PayPal account" and you can use your credit card directly.

Or sure, I will email you when my merchant account is ready.

Good idea. I'll create a discount/voucher code system and make another site to exchange BTC with NameTerrific credit!

So it took you 8x longer to make NameTerrific than Bitcoinica?

Hmm... well I guess the "Don't have a PayPal account" must be hiding somewhere I can't find (although I have already provided my CC details).

Can you tell me which link I need to click on to find this option?

Or sure, I will email you when my merchant account is ready.

Thanks - appreciated.

Just click "Pay with PayPal" and then click the "Don't have PayPal account?" option below the login box.

I'm adding Google Checkout soon. (It doesn't support Australia, sigh...) The merchant account will be slow (possibly in August).

About 3x, I guess. I still need to study and handle Bitcoinica stuff during the last two months. Interacting with the legacy system used by registrars is very hard. A lot of exception handling and debugging (and eNom's test system always fails).

Hmm... perhaps it is because the system has already created the Invoice and already knows me (when I go to it I am already logged in) but if I click "Pay with PayPal" then just just takes me to PayPal (only option there is to cancel and return).
