Although there are many cheaper places I really like godaddy. They have great documentation. 1and1 has good customer service and they have been cheaper in the past (it seems like there are so many different options now pricing is pretty standard among the group of low cost registers) but their dashboard is not the easiest to use.
For .com names, I use Godaddy or Namecheap or Namesilo. Country code tlds are available at different prices and one have to check which is the best one. For example .io names are cheapest at Namecheap, with free domain privacy.
It is noted that many registrars offer domain transfer coupons at various festive seasons and you may try to transfer out to get rid off the high renewal prices if any.
My favourite ones are Namesilo, Godaddy, Namecheap, and Name dot com.
The most favourire maybe the Namesilo which has the option of private whois included, you can choose or not this when registration without charge. Moreover, the renewal cost of Namesilo is cheaper than others (i don't have much money, sir).
I have used Namecheap..but the domain's move really slow and was thinking of changing my sew site to a faster wordpress host.
Dynadot and Godaddy in the past,Dynadot was not very user friendly for a noob five years back..only used tham atthe time because they would work directly with paypal..
I prefer Godaddy because when i need to update or buy/edit domains my changes are instant along with i have used then for too many years so i have just stuck with them. all though i have used Enom in the past also.
I used Godaddy some years back, and gotta say I did like there support team then who I'm with now. But three years ago that can change since I last used them.
What Godaddy is good for is there Domains (end of story) they have an very good built system for that. As for the hosting side they are crap! there hardware isn't top-noch! Then there location isn't that big.
Godaddy is expensive and they charge for Whois privacy. I've been using Hover (free privacy), but now I am thinking about switching to above.com (a little cheaper).
Do you guys have any experience with them?
In terms of pricing / ease of use, what's your favorite domain registrar? I've used a couple in the past and like many, started with GoDaddy. But after their interface became ever so complicated, I ended up using Namecheap. What's your favorite?
