I'm looking to registar a few domain names this holiday weekend and I hope to save a little money at it by not going through Network Solutions. Any recommendations, experiences (good & bad) with any particular registrar?

I have several domains with StarGateInc [stargateinc.com]. It's $8 each if you register more than one at a time. Their server seems a bit flakey: the last time I registered with them, their server hung before I got the confirmation screen, but I tried again a few hours later with no problem. Their interface that lets you change dns servers or admin contact info etc works well, and they seem quite prompt about updating their data bases.

I've got to agree with Woz and say Gandi has been good to me.

Well I just registered a domain with godaddy.com mainly because it was US based and I have heard a lot of good feedback on it. They also have an interface very similar to what tilt was describing. In any case, it was a helluva lot easier and cheaper than Network Solutions. What's the difference between these companies anyways besides price?

I'm still interested in your feedback. I have more names to register and godaddy could let me down.

Key_Master,

Go daddy is fine unless you want to sell a domain that you have registered there. They charge $40 which is not good, but it's the only problem that I have with them. You could always transfer a name out of there into another registrar (adding one year) if you wanted to sell it however and avoid the $40 charge. If you want to buy in bulk and don't mind a non user-friendly interface then I would suggest Dotregistrar.com.

Had good experiences with GoDaddy, though I find their online advertising campaigns very annoying. They're inexpensive, the interface is good, and a moving a domain parked with them to another host was processed very quickly with no snags.

Gandi has been good for me.
You can easily change about everything on line, free of charge.
Only to change the owner of the dominion you need to pay a fee and to follow a special written procedure.

Remember that if you are going to change Registrar, do it al least two months in advance. Doing it during the last validity month you need to pay your old Registrar and the new one.

avoid onestop.net [onestop.net]

I registered a domain in January 2001 at onestop.net, which offers $11 domain registration. Their terms of service [onestop.net] still specify them as a Tucows OpenSRS reseller. However, my domain was registered with eNom, where it remains. Now onestop.net has apparently switched [onestop.net] to Verisign for its registrations. I am in the process of trying to transfer to another registrar. I say "trying" because onestop.net has been very uncooperative. Also, eNom employs a "registrar lock" to make it more difficult to transfer your domain name. Stay away from onestop unless you like the old bait and switch technique.
