All,

I am looking for a domain registrar with  good technical support, good renewal practices (such as communicating when domains are about to expire ), and with a good website (that is not confusing or misleading).  If anyone has some suggestions, please let me know!
We really want to get away from Network solutions...

Thanks,

Allie

www.namecheap.com is who I prefer. The site is easy to use, they have great prices, fantastic support, good promotions and they are a huge supporter of net neutrality.

NOTE: I am in no way affiliated with them, other than being a happy customer.

While I don't have any problems with Network Solutions these days, I also use Dotster and Godaddy without any problems.  Although... all of them are trying to 'upsell' you on 'features' that you don't need.  My own domain is registered with Register.com because I didn't know any better at the time.  They're expensive, $30+ per year, but even more expensive to leave.  In case you didn't know, registrars are allowed to charge you an 'exit fee' and Register.com wanted $200 last time I checked.  It was less expensive to stay than to leave.

Second GoDaddy, they used to have discounts for domain renewals - no more tho.
I think their system is fairly easy to use (now) and they constantly email you when domains are expiring - like months in advance

I've used 1and1.co.uk for years. They seem to have an exhaustive archive of help & support and their site control panel is pretty user friendly as well as exhaustive in available options.

They send out domain renewal reminders a month, two weeks and a couple of days before expiry but most domains are put on auto-renew when you buy through 1&1.

Just another one to consider.
