Godaddy sucks

I'm in the process of moving all my domains the heck off of Godaddy. I'm trying Namecheap which seems slightly less evil, if the sheer amount of ad banners and upselling bullcrap is any indication. But probably only slightly less evil.

Honestly Godaddy has so many ads I can't even find the button to renew my domains. The process of buying anything takes you through 6 or 7 pages of the most garish, fanatical sleaze-peddling that you are likely to encounter on a website.

Domain registrars are the used car salesmen of the internet.

Gandi.net is quite good. They have a clean site and good admin panel. They'll even anonymize your domain for free.

I switched from godaddy to domain.com and been pretty happy.

I'm absolutely happy with name.com. They have clean and nice admin panel.

For what it's worth, Gandi.net are also one of the only few registrars that declares in the agreement that you actually own the domain name.

I've used namecheap for years. Nice and streamlined. No hassle. Does what I need.

I've used joker.com for oh.. years and years. Never had an issue, their rates are very low (or used to be back when I picked them, maybe prices have dropped).

Wish I'd had all these suggestions a couple weeks ago. Namecheap doesn't suck so far though.
