Thanks for the poll.

What if no registrar has met the expectations?

Well if you like no one I guess you don't vote. Hopefully someone is your favorite, even if it's the lesser of two evils.

1. Porkbun
2. Dynadot
3. Namesilo
4. Namecheap
5. Directnic (cheap .org registrations)

Thanks for the pool.

After pandemic era, price is the king. I guest 2022 is still the same as 2021, the best registrars on voting are the cheapest. Only a view like Godaddy with quality will be include, but I guest will not the number 1.

Might be should another pool : The best registrar in Quality 2022.

(Just my suggestion)

Dynadot out to the early lead, but we have the full Q4 for voting.
 
It looks like Porkbun is still growing rapidly. I do like them as well, but is anyone using them for large portfolios?

For me.
1.Sav
2.Onamae GMO-z.com
3.Porkbun

Most people vote for Dynadot, it's obvious NamePros favorite, but in my exp Dynadot has problems.
1. slow order processing.
2. high prices.
3. frequent website issues.

Votes aren't coming in as quickly as they did last year. My guess is that some of the usual culprits have been tainted a bit.

My go-to favorite on a normal day is Dynadot. Then, I remember the hack earlier this year, then I find myself leaning more towards Namecheap and Porkbun.

I still use Dynadot though because I still like the general experience there but I won't be voting because there's no 'favorite' for me this year. I'll see how next year goes.

Yes, like them too. I have currently some 10k domains with Porkbun. I've suggested some improvements to make (bulk) management easier. Some of these features have now been implemented. I'll keep submitting new ideas.

Yes, I was thinking about bulk management. So good to hear they have improved that. Also, I think they need more options to add funds to your account. I think you can only use crypto and a US bank account now.

GoDaddy and Dynadot in the first tier for me, however never had issues with Namesilo and I like the funny approach of Porkbun also.

After 7 years with Namecheap, I've moved to Dynadot as my main registrar this year.
The main deciding factors were renewal costs and the fact that at Dynadot I can have a permanent marketplace listing along with a simple and efficient for sale landing page.
I still absolutely love Namecheap though, of all the registrars I've ever tried, Namecheap has always felt the most solid and secure to me and their chat support is second to none.
However, Dynadot's chat support has also greatly improved from a few years ago.

I recently could not log in to Dynadot, I had 2FA SMS code enabled, for some reason my country phone code was changed, not sure how, when or by who, but this caused one day of non access, of course they solved after I contacted support, however I never faced something like this with other registrars.
Waiting some domains to begin expiring and going to move away from them to Porkbun.

Dynadot and Namesilo are my favorites. Voted for Dynadot because I like their updated UI and cheap gTLD prices.

I can't believe how many registrars there are. I think the best registrar is the one you start.
