    I use NameCheap. Used these guys for years - also use them for different services they offer too (SSL's), haven't used them for hosting though!

    Namesilo. Moved everything from Namecheap to them a few years ago and never looked back.

    Exactly the same here.

    I still use Namecheap for hosting.
    But saved a decent amount of $ with NameSilo for domain registration.

    I've started to use Google Domains. They seem pretty legit!

    Hover. The no BS registrar where GoDaddy throws up-sells kilometres of extra crap.

    I registered my first domain at 1&1 in 1995 or 96. I was with them for a few years, then transferred to GoDaddy. Somewhere around 2008 or 9, I began transferring all my domains, as they neared renewal, to NameSilo. Been with them ever since and am very happy with them. I would never get hosting with the same company I get my domain registrations with. NameCheap has a very good reputation too, but all I get from them is my SSL certificates.

    What was the reason for the move?

    NameCheap here or Porkbun. Both are quite nice, though I prefer Porkbun's UX.

    You didn't ask me, but I made the same move.

    Primarily, price. NameSilo offered a little more (ie: WHOIS privacy) for a little less ($). It adds up over time.

    I was looking forward to trying Google domains, but their prices are prohibitive. Much more expensive than many reliable alternatives.

    Any insight into what you like about them, specifically when comparing to other companies you've used?

    When I found out they had slightly better prices, I tested them out with one of my domains to see if I liked their interface and service. After using it for a month or so, I liked it much more than any other registrar I'd used. Simple and easy to use, and not a lot of BS to deal with. As each of my domains came up for renewal I moved them over to Namesilo and they handled the transfers very quickly (minutes in most cases).

    I have few domains at Godaddy and few at the Namecheap. I used those 99c godaddy domain offer and kept my domains in it for some time now.
