They are beyond terrible. As the other commentators on this site have stated, mydomain are erratic, unstable and the level of customer service is shockingly poor.

Anything which is simple with every other domain name registrar or webhost is made a painful process by mydomain. For instance, changing your nameservers or moving domains to other registrars, which takes a matter of seconds to change the settings in the interfaces of other registrars, involves writing a dozen emails to mydomain.

Incompetent and bureacratic. They've caused me so much misery. No wonder the web is full of negative reviews about them more than any other major domain name registrar I've seen.
