    Reliable, inexpensive registrar for .it TLDs?

    I was looking into the idea of .it domains, but I saw that godaddy doesn't offer them (I currently have all my domains with godaddy)

    I've used a few other registrars here and there, but I've never much been satisfied with the price, interface, or support, and always ended up transferring the domain to godaddy in the end.

    So, I thought I'd ask the sitepoint community...any suggestions for a good, reasonable registrar that supports .it TLDs?

    Thanks

    The following website are pretty good for domain registrations and they have a VERY extensive amount of country based domain names. According to their website they charge $59.00 per year (for a .it) though you should be made aware that italian domains have a restriction on them...

    http://www.101domain.com/

    Only natural persons or juridical persons who possess citizenship, reside in or have a registered office in one of the member states of the European Union can register domain names.
    This means potentially you could loose your domain name if you are not living in a country which is part of the europian union. And yes it does happen.

    Well. I would recommend you to make sure that IT domain name zone do not requires to be resident of the country. In Europe eurodns seems the one who can help you

    SiberForum, do you actually read threads or do you just spam posts? Because if you read what I posted only two posts above you would be well aware of the restrictions of the .IT domain as taken from an ICANN accredited registrar.

    For European domains, I would have gone for europeregistry or 123-reg

    As I'm a US resident and do not have an office in the EU, according to the restrictions on the .it domain, I will not be able to take advantage of it.

    Thanks guys
