I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Suggest you go for ICANN-Accredited Registrars and depends on your chosen TLD and gTLD
https://www.icann.org/registrar-reports/accredited-list.html OR
....find using the desired gTLD (not the common com, org) from the listing stated in  https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/listing-2012-02-25-en
The preference is the registrar is it I security centric and able to support DNSSEC to safeguard against DNS hijacks which has been prevalent and exploited by attackers.

Upon checking the registrar or is going for that accrediated registrar, I do suggest check out some of their sample hosted site reputation and popularity via Alexa @ http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo
And checking using NetCraft tool to see the Hosting location and Risk Rating of those site @ http://toolbar.netcraft.com/
