    I highly recommend namecheap. I use them personally, and they have 24/7 online live support.

    Here's also some namecheap coupon codes:

    I highly HIGHLY recommend Namecheap. I LOVE THEM! They are a powerful and reliable domain registrar!

    I heard of GoDaddy taking down websites for no apparent reason and there have been many other true horror stories about GoDaddy. Imagine having your profitable internet business disappear instantly!

    Go with Namecheap and rest peacefully at night!

    I moved all my domains to name.com - it is very good - plus the domain privacy is free if you use the code FREEWHOIS while registering

    Photo proof??

    Never heard of a practice like this.
    This company truly stink... I guess the testimonials don't lie.

    I use Name.com - No problems / 4 years.

    Wow! free whois privacy with code, that's awesome! Is there some sort of catch?

    Are there other places that offer free privacy?

    I hate godaddy's slow ajax interface. Now I am using name and moniker. Both are great.

    Moniker have excellent support, you will get reply to your query within few minutes.

    Yes, godadday sucks big time, they did that to me a year ago with one of my domains, a .ws and was asking me for nearly $500 to get it back!

    I guess GoDaddy is no good for spamming right? Is NameCheap actually cheaper? I went to their site and they had $2.99 domain registrations. Is that a special or the norm?
