I use Joker too -- $12 for email forwarding and DNS (and some other 
stuff I don't use) along with the name isn't too bad, and I'm very happy 
  not to be hosting DNS myself.  I haven't had many customer support 
experiences with them, but then I suppose that's a good thing.  I think 
the only problem I've had is having the CC declined because it looked 
like fraud (since they are in another country), and they dealt with that
