I want to know what should i be watching out for when I register a domain name through a 3rd party such as a web design company or web hosting service?

I'd recommend you stay away from that altogether.

Lots of these companies end up holding your domain hostage if you ever want to move it. Or, if you cancel their other services, they charge you a large penalty to get your domain. And they may hold the domain in their own name, so if they ever go out of business, you would lose your domain.

Domains are cheap enough that it's well worth your while to buy them from reputable registrars.

Yes, I tried helping out with PickyDomains and it seemed like they accepted my ideas but then the company never ever ever picked anything or checked up on them. Then when the company liked your ideas they suddenly refunded their account. All in all, the people at picky domains are definitely...picky lol.

Were you a client of theirs, or were you thinking up names for them?

Not a good idea. They'll have control over the domain, and you don't want that to happen, especially if things go downhill in the future. Registering a domain on your name is pretty easy, you shouldn't have a problem with it.

The inability to prove ownership is the biggest problem people face when getting domain name through a third party. If you still want to do it, then you must have a contract with the 3rd party and should pay for the domain yourself.
