NameSilo is one of the lesser-known domain registrars, but one of the most reputable from our experience. I currently own over 30 domains which are registered through this the company and I value their consistently low prices, excellent support, free domain protection, and free WHOIS privacy. If you're looking to buy a new domain, I HIGHLY suggest checking out NameSilo. Be sure to read our full review.

Domain.com is another solid domain registrar whom offers reasonably priced domain names with competitive features. While you don't get free WHOIS privacy (costs an extra $7.99/yr), you do get URL forwarding, email forwarding, DNS management, and transfer locking capabilities.

Namecheap offers a variety of domain types and had a solid reputation in the online community. Their domains are often discounted for the first year and renew at a higher price, but nothing outrageous. All domain purchases come with free WHOIS privacy and optional SSL certificates (extra cost).

1&1 is a domain registrar and web hosting provider that is well-known due to their successful marketing campaigns. You can get a year's worth of a 1&1 domain for cheap although the renewal rate is often considerably higher. All domains include free WHOIS domain registration, 1 email account, and 24/7 support.

  • Some top ICANN Accredited domain registrar are missing from this list Like godaddy, enom,, tucows, bigrock, Netlynx.com, register.com

    • They may be ICANN accredited, but that doesn’t mean all that much. I specifically left out popular options like Register & GoDaddy simply due to the amount of negative customer experiences especially GoDaddy. You can read more information about GoDaddy’s horrible reputation by reading this article.

  • Hi have to agree with Colt on this one Jishan. Many of these so-called top level domain registrars like http://www.godaddy.com have many hidden fees and dubious selling practices. The more generic less glitzy sites like http://www.domain.com tend to have lower prices but offer better support, and they usually provide additional services like DNS management at no extra cost whereas, the big guys want to charge you at every turn! (Probably why they became big in the first place).
