What makes a good domain registrar?
I like Whois.com, Cloudflare, and maybe GoDaddy for difficult foreign TLDs (that require proxy service). All I care about it:
- Good UI – easy-to-use interface that isn’t bombarding me with web and email hosting ads! (Hahaha)
- Domain selection – provides many TLDs. This way you don’t have to register at multiple registrars. Can get them all conveniently in the same place.
- Free privacy – this is especially important if you have busy sites/domains. Without the privacy options, your emails and home mailbox will be bombarded with spam.
- Provides proxy service (foreign TLDs) – this is useful when registering foreign domains in countries that require you to have a local presence or business license there. The proxy service allows you to use the registrar as your business contact. Of course, this means the domain is in their name and hopefully you trust them.
