What's the best domain registrar?

I'm looking for really solid references for domain purchasing and management. Mobile & web.

    Simple pricing. Really nice management features. No need to hunt for promos or stuff to get cheap domains... a bit friendlier than GoDaddy.

    I only purchase domains from Namecheap. Simple pricing and no BS. Extremely reliable and most importantly has better security features than it's competitors (two factor Auth for any changes on your domains). Updates like NS servers are virtually instaneous. Also I like that thier WHOIS Guard (domain protection) is included for the first year of a domain and is only $2 a year after that. Lastly thier domain prices don't fluctuate (like how godaddy charges you more after the first year). My only complaint is that when searching for a domain, they try to push random TLDs like .fyi and .wtf and stuff before .com and .net. Just add the tld you want in the search bar to avoid this (domain.com instead of domain) and then it will pull the .com to the top. I don't shop price, I host all domains in Namecheap. You can find 99¢ and $2 domains from other providers for the first year but most those providers jack the price up to $15-$20 a year after that. Namecheap is always $9.80 a year for a .com. That's fair to me and I like everything else they provide that I don't buy domains anywhere else.

    I've never done a price comparison so I can't say for certain that Namecheap is the cheapest, but I can vouch that they are one of the most reliable sites to purchase a domain from. It's the only place I buy my domains from.

    Big fan of Google Domains. I'm happy to pay a little bit more for a great domain management experience and to not be bombarded with upselling.

    Google Domains is extremely neat, with simple pricing and domain management tools. You pay only for the domain - straightforward pricing, no confusion. Domain privacy cost's probably included in the same. Point being, no differential pricing like what GoDaddy does. Huge fan, but have been using Namecheap lately now for better deals.

    Hover has been my go-to for the past year. With all registrars mostly accomplishing the same thing. I think it really comes down to UI and management tools. I've found hovers to be some of the easiest to use. Interface is clean / they don't spam you. Seems like a good/honest company in general.

    I use Hover to purchase TLD's. They offer better pricing than namecheap + godaddy for TLD's.

    Hover is great. Their recent UI refresh looks fantastic, and they have the customer service and honesty you'd expect from a Canadian company.

    It's easy and does exactly what you expect a domain reseller to do. It has a beautiful UI and lets you connect your domain in a click to services like Github, Heroku, Medium, and others.

    Launchaco redirects you to another purchaser, but it helps you iterate on naming really easily. Plus it helps you find all social accounts.
