    Namecheap++.

    Godaddy sucks, shitty interface, cluttered sales cart, and they'll readily seize your domains for spam. I have had over 300 domains seized at once by Godaddy in the past. Avoid at all costs.

    I link spam hard and I've never had a problem and they're generally well regarded on BH forums, plus their interface is nice and clean. You might have problems if you're bulk emailing - best to use an obscure offshore registrar that specializes in bulletproof domains for that stuff.

    Looks like i'll be fine then, it's nothing as much as bulk emailing so should be fine.

    I prefer Godaddy but having said that when you are planning to purchase a domain to check if any of these sites are offering any special seasonal discount
