If not Godaddy, then who?
My domains are up for renewal. Is there a consensus about a better place to put them?

I'm moving to Namecheap.com on Dec. 29. They will give a discount and donate a $ to EFF if you use the discount code SOPASUCKS.

Mind, I'd prefer they give a $ to us at PK, but EFF is worthy as well.

I use 1and1.com

Six years ago when I needed to get a new host for myself and Queens PFLAG, I looked at number of places including godaddy and 1and1 and found that at the time that 1and1 was the best deal for what I was paying. Over the years they have included many more stuff to the account. I now have a few dot org sites all on my account.

Y-Combinator had some recommendations a while back:

And so did Lifehacker:

I had a client hosted/registered at 1&1 and found their management interface horrible to work with.

I've been with Directnic for years and think they have a good interface and good service. Dunno how they stand politically.

Other than the consensus being 'anywhere but GoDaddy' they're probably all similar. I have one domain with Dreamhost and found their customer service not entirely helpful - when I asked how to map the domain to the site, I was told 'oh, you can just forward it, it'l look the same' which, err, NO.

I've got an account with fatcow.com - no idea about their politics, but they are affordable, offer unlimited subdomains/WP installations, and I've had good experiences with their customer service. Only thing that annoyed me was that I got the best offer after I'd clicked 'cancel' on the ordering process, which is a bit sneaky and underhand.
