    Sorry Samer but I have to disagree with GD at #3

    They may have discounts at times but are sorely lacking in dealing with .ca issues.
    I have done several sales where the buyers want to move them to GD. GD has problems with transfers and can't handle the RAR and RANT at the same time. Seems they handle the RAR first and then in 60 days you can do the RANT.
    I have had many sold names that have initiated emails to me (after sales) wanting permission to make a change as I am still listed as one of the registrants.

    I know many are aware of this with them so just a heads up for those that aren't.

    Not saying they shouldn't be an option....don't think #3 though.

    (kinda odd links for the last 3 )

    cheers

    I do agree with you jaydub but I am looking at it from the point of view of how many of these registrars hold .CA domains.

    Godaddy, Fatow and Netfims are actually quite popular among those starting out to register domains. Whether that means people are happy with them I am not sure, but many people are registering with them.

    There are many options out there and based on customer support Namespro definitely ranks above the rest!

    Ahh..OK. I guess by popularity.
    I just thought that as this was a post in the "Beginner" section it should be noted that there are issues with GD with .ca names. Maybe save someone some grief.


    agreed ..Namespro.ca is #1 in my book....followed by Siber

    Are you sure it's not in order of which registrar offers the most amount of affiliate return when a user clicks the link?

    I've been using 10dollar.ca and have been really happy with their pricing and service. I have only transferred domains a few times but it's always went well and when I did email them with a newbie question about how to do something they got back to me right away with an answer.
    Works for me.
