I think the best domain name for domain names is domainnames.com. Is it for sale? Who owns it? Will it be developed? Is it for sale? Is it worth one million dollars? Was it ever sold publicly? Will @stub make an offer? Last snapshot link was to the Uni Registry 1st of December 2021. On the 10th of July 1997 first snapshot made. I going to hazard a guess and say it was owned in 1997 by a U.K. national being that it had so many English place names for sale and many of them quite random (Barnsley, Wigan, Cheltenham, Wolverhampton) that would suggest first hand geographical knowledge. And there down the list under "D" fairly bizarrely is listed DOMAINNAMES.COM - SOLD - How is a domain name listing it's own domain name as sold able to promote itself? Any detectives in the building? Doctor Watson wants to know where his boss is eating his lunch. Had links http://www.domainnames.com/ida.htm to hundreds of premium quality and other domain names:

$370,000 for domainnames.com as recent as 2019? That's a great deal for the buyer and not such a great deal for the seller. Surely the best domain name for selling domain names is domainnames.com. Got everything. Exact match, Keywords, Trust, Easy, Simple, Short, It's criminal that nobody is developing this website. The buyer should be languishing in a dark and cold prison cell on Shutter Island for crimes against domain names.

If you're a person that owns quality domains (like domainnames.com)...domains sell themselves, regardless of how you want to dress it. A great site with a great name doesn't sell your domains, they sell themselves. With that understanding, some people just can't be bothered making it prettier, as it isn't totally necessary. Like a pharmacy that doesn't clean its windows, your doctor has given you the prescription (you need these great drugs, you need this great domain)...will you show up to the place or not? In conclusion: You're still showing up. IMO

I'm just throwing it into the mix mate. Imagine a total beginner who wants to buy a domain name and doesn't know any brands. Which one of these will he or she most likely choose/trust?
  • afternic.com
  • bluehost.com
  • dan.com
  • domain.com
  • domains.google
  • domainnames.com (I.M.O.)
  • epik.com
  • godaddy.com
  • ionos.com
  • name.com
  • namecheap.com
  • namesilo.com
  • sedo.com

When I started out in business, my first domain for a business was "ignition cars"...as a beginner, selling starter cars, I had an idea of what I want to call myself, regardless of anyone giving me recommendations from the marketplace. I'd like to be called "ignition"...well I can't get that, I'll get "ignition cars". If you're a person that has a vision of what you want to do, I think a name isn't so hard to imagine...but hey, depends

By the way, in answer to the question, contrary to the great domain "domain names"...as a beginner I'd sway with GoDaddy, as they're the most known / first provider that pops into my head. Even if a shame for "domain names", GoDaddy are a domain powerhouse, with a bigger marketing spend. Its hard to imagine that even an absolute beginner not once hearing / seeing GoDaddy in an advert. In the vast majority of circumstances, I just think people have. So...the world of "imagine if a newbie knows no brands" I don't really buy. I would even say if you haven't once heard about the online brand GoDaddy, you're so out of tune with online stuff, that you shouldn't run an online business (side joke)
