    We use Namecheap.com and I must say their service has been very good to date.

    The Best... for me it is not important knowing who is the best. I can say that I always was and I am total satisfied by the services of GoDaddy.

    I recommend directnic.com.

    I have used them for years.
    These guys earned my respect way back in 2005. They were located in New Orleans, La... during Katrina.. after New Orleans got hammered and mostly destroyed these guys kept everything up and running... a hell of a lot more than the rest did.

    And they are no longer located in New Orleans, or even in the US anymore, which is a good thing in our business.

    I use Dotster and BigRock and have had no major problems except Dotster tends to take a long time to pay Nominet for the renewal of UK domains.

    I used to use 1and1 until I had some technical issues that their philippines service dept couldnt resolve... no longer supported a domain I registered from them, couldnt unlock it, transfer it, use it etc etc.

    So I found a small (20 employees at the time) hosting company in the UK called Vidahost and I have often received 3rd line tech support from the directors... in minutes. I have all my domains with them and I would bet big bucks that no big name can compete with their service.

    I've been using namecheap, godaddy and directnic for many years and have never had any problems with any of them.

    First off never host with a domain registrar. Their business is domains, hosting is a side product for them and can not provide as great a service as a hosting company.

    Ok now back on topic. I personally use namecheap for my domains. I have used others before one i can remember is godaddy but namecheap support is better and the backend is far more user friendly.

    Namecheap will always have my business as long as I am buying domains.

    I would say that GoDaddy is one of the best.

    I should have mentioned really, that the "best" domain provider differs depending on your country of residence. For me as a UK affiliate, for UK domains, 123-reg is the best value, as they don't have to pay extra charges for registering, as you are registering a domain from the UK, within the UK. If however, you register an Australian one, they have extra charges to pay to register it, which are then passed on. However, if you go to an Australian provider, they don't have to pay them, or don't pay as much, and thus it's cheaper. So really, the true question should be what's the best domain provider if I live in.......and want to register a .something domain

    im moving all my domains to namecheap, way to much advertises at godaddy. used directnic before, but namecheap is like 4-5 bucks cheaper per domain, adds up when you got tons of domains

    It depends on what you mean by the "best". If best means the cheapest prices, whilst also delivering a reasonable amount of good service, then I would pick Namecheap. If you wanted the biggest and most secure domain registrar, the choice would have to be Godaddy. Even though they are the most expensive, they are easily the most popular, reputable, and reliable registrar.

    I have to disagree with you on this. Namecheap is far better than Godaddy. The thing that makes people believe that godaddy is better is because they have far more customers. Its pretty easy to have a product thats ok and promote it to death.

    Namecheap vs Godaddy
    Reliable - Both
    Reputable - Both
    Popular - Godaddy
    Support - Namecheap
    Price - Namecheap
    User-friendly - Namecheap

    The winner is Namecheap.

    This is another thing that a lot of people won't agree on.....

    I disagree with all of you as I use a different one....

    If we can't agree on who is the best, I'd like to say that bigrock_com is definitely one of the worst registrars haha Stay away from them at all costs. Their customer service is terrible!

    Personally I like to deal with smaller companies.

    More personalized, usually far better service... and I'll usually get to know the owner/manger by first name.
    That way when I do have a problem, I know who can fix it.

    Godaddy is good for domains in the USA but you have to ignore all of the up-sale options that they provide. However, they also have pretty good deals on SSL certificates and hosting, so if they are good if your looking for an all in one solution.
