From best to worst in my experience, taking into account price, customer service, and back end:

Tier 1: Epik
Tier 2: Dynadot, Namecheap, Namesilo
Tier 3: Porkbun, SAV
Tier 4: All the rest
Tier 5: Godaddy, Ionus, InternetBS

Hi @equity78

Will you filter out employees and entities that voted for their own company (or sister company) afterwards?

Thanks.

In the GoDaddy votes, for example, there are at least 2 (blue colored) votes that should not be counted:

I guess we can do that, I don't think it will matter for #1. But again it's also hard to know who has an account here with no registrar company notation but works there.

I can't believe how many registrars there are. I think the best registrar is the one you start.
The best ones should be those who don't regularly get their domains stolen, those that are the most secure.

That is certainly very important. Who are the best, in your experience?

That's going to be best for another discussion. I'll have to go through the thousands of stolen domains that we've (DNProtect) has dealt with in the past year or so and come up with a list. The list would be the registrars where domains have been stolen--not the most secure registrars. If they haven't had any domains stolen that we know about, we would assume that it's a "better" registrar with better security policies. But, that isn't 100 percent the case, as some registrars' customers tend to share their logins with others who then steal the domains (and that's not the fault of the registrar).

Thanks, you're right about that.

Regarding GoDaddy, these non-allowed votes are easy to spot:

- Paul Nicks (President of Domains at GoDaddy)
- DAN.COM (subsidiary of GoDaddy)
- Michael Cyger (Director of Education, Domains at GoDaddy)

Regarding Namesilo, these non-allowed votes are easy to spot:

- Namesilo
- NameLot.com
- Catch.Club

...
3 votes aren't much; but currently it's the difference between Porkbun (49 votes) > Namesilo (50 votes)
...

LOL. Godaddy in 4th? That must be some kind of sick joke? HAHA.
They are sickeningly, pathetically, bad (imo). I don't even know where to begin, to explain why.
There are so many detestable negatives......

This are votes of those who work at Godaddy and have millions of domains in their portfolios, basically 3rd hand Godaddy sellers, so that Godaddy is at distance in this way of owning those domains, most of sales are made at Godaddy because end users are brainwashed to buy their crap, they think "if I buy from Godaddy this is great brand" like Dolce Gabbana but there is nothing great in this brand only marketing and money, swallowing other brands like Dan, it is a Godaddy Octopus beast like Google and Facebook beast, they must be dethroned ASAP.

I've tried a lot of them, but Dynadot is the best I've used. Competitive pricing, easy access to customer support, and a great UI. I just wish they had more renewal promos for .com, especially with the increase in pricing.
