Finally getting around to moving to a new registrar. I’ve heard lots of good things about Hover. Out of the gate, their domain registration process is about 100 less clicks than godaddy, who tries to sell you everything under the sun.
I also transferred an existing godaddy registration over to them with zero hassle. They walk you through the process step by step and even provide instructions for the parts that need to happen in the godaddy account manager. Nice.
They also offer a Valet Transfer Service, where they do all the grunt work of the transfer you, if you hand over the credentials to your previous registrar. Probably OK, but I’d feel a little concerned letting them muck around on my behalf.
