    First of all: Never register your domain through the hosting provider. They are there for hosting, don't waste your money on giving them the power to control your domain. It's yours. In a dispute and with a bit of bad luck they remain the register on it, or the tech admin, and move it, lock it, lose it. It's just not worth it. Go with a registrar and not a shitty reseller.

    Examples are Namecheap and Hover, go with them. They're easy, affordable, and give you control over the domain, dns, whois protection, etc.

    Don't go with GoDaddy: they're fucking assholes. You will be regretting it in the long run.

    Any other company you would want to add to this list?

    Namecheap is my default. I have heard such bad things about GoDaddy that I never bothered with them. I think my first site was on GatorHost but I switched in a year. I would much rather get the domain and focus on hosting myself. I can't think of any off the topic of my head I would recommend outside of Namecheap since that is all I use these days. I will post again if one comes to mind!

    Namecheap is great, GoDaddy's support is horrible.
