Not to argue the point, but NetSol still registers more domains than any other registrar, with Tucows/OpenSRS coming in second. I'm not saying they offer significant value for the added $20+ they get per domain, but they still outsell the rest of the industry.
People are still buying $35 domains from NetSol - just not many of them hang out here.
Here the focus is on where you can get the domain for the cheapest up front cost. Nothing wrong with that, but for many customers this is also not a great answer. Customers who don't have a clue about managing their own DNS, or even what steps to take to buy a domain and get it hosted might want to use a domain registrar who provides service at some reasonable level.
I still hear from people every day who bought poorly and were stuck with $30 transfer fees, or $50 domain editing fees. I had two transfers cancelled this week from a person in these forums who bought into a $6.95 domain up-front cost, that includes a $45 transfer away fee, or a $50 domain renewal fee.
Many of the people with whom I have spoken in the past month have gone with registrars recommended in these forums - in some cases with significant surprises down the road.
