Why is the list of registrars not in alphabetical order? That can influence the outcome.
He made the other 2021 best registrar poll and was notified about making it alphabetical 2 days prior to making this one.
But somehow, he not only forgot, but made this list even fancier than the first one.
Shady man.

ive said this before, why dont we all chip in and buy a registrar, a registrar owned by domainers would make beautiful sense. Just an option. ty.

Sounds nice in principal. Really how much does it cost upfront, and how much do we need for running expenses, office, staffing, softare, etc. What kind of services will it provide? And how much does it cost to stay secure. I suggest we lease Dynadot's backend :) How much would THAT cost :) Who would manage/oversee it's operation?

It seems some want this to compare and contrast, so I will oblige.

If you could only pick one registrar and that was who you had to register and keep your domains at for one full year (this is a hypothetical, no one lose their mind please) For 2021 that would be?

No employees, Votes are public.
Well, which one of these truly adhere to the "may" part of ICANN's 60-day lock GUIDELINES, not rules, by not enforcing those locks? If there's any like that with $9-$10 max .coms, then that will be the one registrar for the whole year. If not, then NONE.

Dynadot is your Registrar. They are like a breath of fresh air in this industry. They don't enforce transfer locks for any of Verisign (.com etc) or Donuts domains. The 2 main Registries who don't enforce transfer locks in this industry. I can transfer a .com domain to Dynadot and transfer it out again immediately the same day. Should I have a need to do so. Like I've sold the domain :) Now ask your Registrar if they can do that. If not. They are not following the rules of the Registry (Verisign or Donuts). Which trumps ICANN's 60 day lock GUIDELINES.

Will they really do same day Stu?

Yep. I asked them specifically. The immediacy is only if the lock is turned on or off. And a domain is ready to go. You don't even need support. You can turn the lock off/on yourself from within the control panel, IIRC, from trying it :) For me it was automatically turned off (no blocking). I imagine that is the default option.
