I hear that GoDaddy are the wise and safe choice to stick with. If you
need to transfer domain ownerships, however, then you might as well con-
sider registering with the prospective Web host. There is a 3-month delay
when moving domain registration from one host to another, let alone if you
consider 'irregular' registrars. I am not sure if things have changed
since the last time I experienced and paid the toll of this.
Hope it helps,
