  1. Go Daddy: Cheapest domain name registrar, based on our experience. Support isn’t always stellar (we received canned responses a few times), but then again you usually will not experience issues with your domain name after you buy it. Also, Go Daddy supports free domain name push (internal transfer to another Go Daddy account), in case you decide to sell your domain name.
