Better provider for registering a new domain name?

All our domains are currently registered at Network Solutions. With four more to add, we found godaddy.com offers much lower rate ($12.99/year) compared to Network Solutions ($34.99/year). The huge difference of prices between the two kind of puzzles me. Does it matter to go which provider for registering your web domain name? And is there some risk to go godaddy.com?

WE use Godaddy.com for all registrations. They send out coupons with discounts on a regular basis. We use the coupons to extend out registrations at a discount.

Godaddy.com is a bit checper and their coupons can save you money.

There is no risk as Godaddy. They are a Tier 1 registrar. You should be safe with them.

I have been using Heartinternet and 12-reg for my clients over 10years, support, domain transfer in and out, customer service very good.

Above all there is always promotions and offers.

godaddy is cheaper because they use a different business model based on getting lower margins for high volume an then selling a lot of addons.

In terms of safety there is no difference.
