    @ stator What good points are you looking for a domain registrar?

    Low price or good support or free services. There are many good one out there and each has its own merits.

    1and1 has $4.99 .com, .net, and .org until 2/28/2011

    The domain privacy is included but it acts weird. It won't ask you to for private during the registration but days later, you add it via Contact then click on Public/Private Registration. Sometimes you will get an error message (1and1 knows about this and is fixing it) and sometimes it'll go through. The fix is logging out, waiting 15 minutes or an hour, then trying it again.

    Buy the domains and point them to your servers

    People regret buying from 1and1 once they need advanced options like creating own child name servers, there are other caveats too that need thorough research before going with 1and1.

    Buy domain
    Change nameservers to the ones you use
    You still get it for the same price

    Thanks for your concern though

    I mentioned "child nameservers" you can say creating it's own nameservers or host summary.

    This question has been ask about a zillion times. Please research these forums before asking such a broad question. You need to be specific about what you expect from a registrar. Otherwise you will get recommendations for cheap, expensive, good/bad/indifferent support/interface/services, resellers/non-resellers, us/overseas, etc. It is hopeless (and a waste of time) to answer such a broad question without knowing your requirements.

    Check out internet.bs. After trying other registrars, that's what I'm using now.

    My review for them (and other registrars) is in this post:

    As I see, there are many suggestions here.. so, it can be reasonable to compare their pricing, specials and discounts ==> then choose the best one.

    If you can get a reseller account, my vote goes to Fabulous.com (hands down). It's an Australian based company managed by Dark Blue Sea (public company in AU).

    I've used Namecheap and Netearthone without issues. However, NEO's ugly interface can give you headaches at times..

    I have most of my domains at Godaddy or Moniker for 3 reasons:
    1. Ease of use
    2. Price
    3. Customer service (especially Moniker)

    Isn't this the place to share experiences with vendors?

    Well, I'm searching for those zillion responses using "Registrar recommendation" as a search term and this is the first really on-topic hit I got.

    Perhaps I'm an exception but most of my purchase criteria are compensitory. That is I might tolerate an off-shore Registrar if they are responsive, or use a Registrar that doesn't sell SSL certificates if they have a good mechanism for managing name server addresses.

    Is there a better place to look for a smattering (or deluge) of user experiences with various Registrars?

    On LogicBoxes platform (ResellerClub, NetearthOne etc.) you can select what you want to resell, they do offer SSL and few other services too but you can be selective.

    I have been with ResellerClub (same group of company who developed LogicBoxes) for few years now and they are good enough for my needs, NetearthOne have a good reputation too.

    Most of the popular billing system have full working modules to connect to LogicBoxes API.

    My Domain Name Registry Recommendation...

    Hey!

    If your living in the United Kingdom I would defiantly say 123-reg are the cheapest for domain names, they regularly have sales and discounts in which any one can take advantage in, there domain control panel for managing DNS entries and Name Servers Is a tick above the rest and there support is beyond brilliant. I'm not sure how they do it because I am aware that they are another OpenSrs Reseller (Like myself) when I register domains through OpenSrs I look at spending a minimum of $12.00 so for 123-reg to have there prices as they do it's simply quite astonishing.

    Thanks,
    Jake

    123-reg are 9.99 for .com domains... so $16. Hardly competitive. I'm also in the UK.

    Jake makes a good point. "...support that is beyond brilliant" is worth a heck of a lot when your boss is foaming at the mouth or clients are at the gates with their pitchforks and torches.

    A laggard or clumsy Registrar can cost you your reputation. IMHO it's not worth the risk. The trick is to find the balance point between cost and the liklihood of effective support that suits your enterprise.

    The odd thing is that support quality and price are not tightly linked. I had one famous Registar who charged US$35/yr for a .COM but wouldn't lift a finger to resolve problems -- you simply took what they gave you and shut up. By the same token it doesn't take much to appreciate that someone operating on a paper-thin margin (like ~US$7/yr for .COM) isn't likely to have the time or quality of personnel to provide decent support even if they wanted to.

    But above around US$9/yr for a .COM there are huge differences in how effective the Registrar is when there are problems. That's where these exchanges on WHT and contributions like Jake's come in handy.

    Regards,

    Aza
