Personally I like 'domain-registrar' better but it seems as though 'registrar' gets used much more. Either way I don't think we need both tags.

Also up for discussion:


Though I can these being a problem since some I'm sure some are referring to windows domains and some to website domains.

  • I'd go change them, but my SF rep is too low.

I think the domain-registrar should be used despite the stats (registrar ×20, domain-registrar ×2), but the majority ones for the others (domain, domain-name).

  • That was my feeling.

Do you really see any ambiguity in the future where we someone would use registrar and not mean a provider of DNS services? Personally I am a big fan of using the most simple tag whenever possible.

I retagged domainname and domain-names to domain-name since that one is pretty clear. I also retagged subdomains(3) to subdomain(100) while I was at it.

  • I do agree but for the time being every one of the registrar tags that exists is regarding a web domain so retagging now would be appropriate. If at a later date the registrar tag is needed for some other purpose it can be recreated.
