I personally use Godaddy for domain registration process. However unless it is urgent i tend to wait for promotions for special days. When the right time comes, you may get a chance to register domain under almost 1$.
Netfirms is legit & based in Toronto. There is no transfer out fee & no catch. You can transfer out before the start of the 2nd year. When you register, as part of their fraud protection, they may require email or phone confirmation.
$5/year for a .com is considerably cheaper than elsewhere
Big transfer out fee?
No matter what the price, always find out what the fees are
Note on the website there is a *, leading to "Domain will renew at $11.99 per year thereafter", so would be $8.50 for two years which is still competitive
Also, transfer-in fees are free (subject to $11.99 renewal), but what about transfer out?
There is no mention of this!

You might save money on the first year, but if you forget to transfer it out by renewal time, you will have paid more after renewal than if you owned it elsewhere for 2 years.
