We have used Network Solutions as our domain registrar, hosting service and email provider for over 20 years.
  • Can't think of a thing since combining with
  • From experience, they respond when they say they will - they say "24-48" hours but problems take weeks to resolve
  • I believe they don't put service reps in the position of lying to your customers - give them access to accurate information
  • Give access to senior level support instead of just having text service reps that don't have access to information or ability to actually fix anything.
Based on my experience, I cannot think of a situation in which I would now choose Network Solutions. The current issue, that has led to us getting ready to move all our domains away from Network Solutions is this: An email contact was entered incorrectly on our new domain, our mistake. Network Solutions said they could fix this within 24-48 hours. We are now going on two weeks. I feel sorry for their service reps, every day they say an admin will be in touch within 24-48 hours but the admins never get in touch. They have no access to higher level techs, cannot be in touch with a supervisor, nothing. All one can do is check in every day only to be told that nothing is fixed yet. We need to get this business up and running, a delay like this is costing us thousands of dollars. Be careful!

We use Network Solutions to host our domains. This covers a few domains, security, safety, whosit and various domain related services. We use it daily. Network Solutions is easy to use and comparatively cost effective. The website is easy to use and cloud based.
  • website based
  • easy set-up
  • easy to reach customer service
  • website does not work well with certain browsers (Safari, Firefox)
  • sometimes pushy upgrade and additional services emails
  • auto billing cycle alignments (had to call to get figured out)
Network Solutions is useful for building a website. Protecting your domain. Do it yourself management and set up. This would not be useful if you are using Squarespace or a similar product the costs do not line up.

We have used Network Solutions to register and manage domains for our client websites. As applicable, we manage client zone files for DNS for the domains there to keep their various services running as well as provide security for email and any other services they use. We have also taken on some legacy client sites hosted with Network Solutions.
  • Editing zone files can be easier than some DNS services.
  • Transfers perform consistently.
  • Uptime is good.
  • Advertisements for more services throughout the use of their dashboard.
  • Transfers have unnecessary extra delays built in.
  • Security options are generally poor for a domain registrar.
  • More expensive than most competition.
  • Core transfer functions (e.g. unlocking) sometimes don't work.
  • Support is very poor for an industry with generally poor support.
My experience with using Network Solutions hasn't been great. At best, it has almost feature parity with its competitors at a higher price. But when you tack on all the minor annoyances of being given interstitial ads for their other products or discount offers when logging in or performing a transfer, the all too common bugs where a feature doesn't work, and in my experience support takes at least a half-hour to understand your problem before even attempting to fail at a resolution. It just isn't worth it in my opinion. Go with a service with better support, features, security, and lower price.

We use Network Solutions for Domain Name Registration, Email, DNS management and web hosting.

When working for other companies, we often recommend Network Solution for similar services.

Network Solutions services give us a one stop shop to manage the domains we purchase whether we are just using Web Forwarding to point the domain to something like an Etsy shop with an email address that reflects the domain name to increase brand awareness over generic email addresses like Gmail etc.

On the e-commerce side, we use Advanced DNS records to point the Domain we have registered with Network Solutions to servers with BigCommerce. This service is included with the domain registration which isn't the cheapest available out there, but we feel the customer support and use of the Network Solution website makes it easier to manage than some other registrars we've used that are cheaper.
  • Email
  • DNS Management
  • Free Open Source web solutions
  • Web Hosting
  • Web Forwarding
  • Support for Free Open Source 3rd party products you have to pay for the help
  • Calling Network Solutions during busy periods can lead to an overflow center which isn't as helpful as the domestic support centers
  • Pricing could be more competitive on domain name registration
  • Email boxes could have a larger capacity without having to pay for more space
If you know what you are doing with free open source website building applications and need no help, Network Solutions is a good place to look. If you have an Etsy shop or SmugMug account and you want to have a domain name that points to those locations, Network Solutions Web Forwarding is a cost effective easy solution. If you need email for your domain name that is reliable, Network Solutions has a solid product.

Network Solutions is utilized to host DNS and provide a wildcard SSL certificate for one of our domains and hosts the main web page and DNS for another of our domains.
  • Network solutions supports TXT, MX, and CNAME records.
  • DNS changes propagate fairly quickly.
  • Network Solutions has a web management portal for maintenance of your account.
  • The webpage for managing our DNS, SSL, and hosted webpage is cumbersome to navigate and difficult to make changes.
  • Configuring DKIM records with O365 was a hassle and I had to do a lot of digging to figure out how to get it done with Network Solutions.
  • Network solutions does not support DNSSEC.
  • When I renewed my SSL certificate, my CSR was rejected multiple times with little to no explanation fro Network Solution.
  • When I call into support for anything I am constantly transferred between teams and told, "I'm sorry, we don't handle that on this team."
I have yet to find a situation where Network Solutions would be the best solution. Their customer support is severely lacking, their prices do not appear to be as low as other more known DNS registrars, their webpage to manage your account needs a complete overhaul, and documentation on their website (for configuration explanations) is sparse.

I've used Network Solution most commonly for domain registration and DNS. I've occasionally also worked with their web hosting service. They provide other services as well. We use it when consulting with clients whose domains, DNS, or websites are hosted there.
  • They do appear to have very low INTRODUCTORY prices on many of their services.
  • User interface for service management: their interfaces for DNS management especially are quite buggy, but across the board, it's clunky and outdated.
  • Support: I can't remember any good experience I've ever had with their support.
  • Reliability: I've experienced frequent issues with DNS and hosting reliability.
Based on my experiences with Network Solutions, I would not recommend any of their services at this time. I know of no specific issues with domain registration, so if the cost comparison makes sense, then perhaps it would be reasonable to buy domains from them, but be beware of the introductory price and know what you'll be paying for it in the long term when you price compare.
