I am tired constantly searching for a domain renewal coupon code every time I renew one of my 30 + domains. Most of them were registered when it was $8 per year with no discount. Now they are all renewing at different prices, some as high as $16.99! More than 200% increase in price! Looking forward to moving everything to Google some day.

I have always used NameCheap. They have been consistent in price and their new interface is easy to use. I host on Hostgator but always use Namecheap for research and domain purchasing. Always hated GoDaddy. Way too complicated and faced numerous issues whenever I tried to use them.

Agree with the GoDaddy issue. Good thing I'm using BlueHost. Great customer service. Just one question: What is it about Google? Do you mean Blogspot?

Thanks! Smilie

Google has one of the worst support systems for domains. I would highly recommend avoiding them if you want to keep your domain long term.

Try Namecheap for a good deal and user-friendly interface.
Host with Hostgator for the same reasons.

Godaddy is cheap when you register the domain for the first time, you have lots of coupons. But gets costlier on renewal. Namecheap is also good.

Namecheap is best for registering domains. I left godaddy 5-6 years ago after going through 4 pages of cross sells to register a domain.

if you want a review, here is one:

pros:
1. Google domains is a domain registrar - not a website hosting service, which is a good thing - it means it will be separate from any hosting that you would have
2. it's easy to add arbitrary records (cname, mx, etc.) - this is a good think, as it doesn't mean you have to use some sort of crappy wizard with a crippled interface like some others do
3. no-nonsense pricing at $12/year, no looking for coupon codes like the OP and others at godaddy and similar.
4. no paying extra for "private registration" where it can be provided (note: .us domains are explicitly not allowed to have private registration, blame whichever political party you want)

cons:
1. support is next to non-existent, but honestly, what sort of support does one need from a domain registrar?

other:
it does not come with or auto-integrate with google apps for business or other google products, but it will work with them via standard configuration, just like if you had domain hosting elsewhere
