GoDaddy is the largest registrar on the planet. They are also one of the most well-known names on the Internet. They are certainly the most famous one in our registrar review.
GoDaddy offers both domain name registration and web hosting services. This means you can keep your domain and web hosting under one company.
Their TLD selection is very large, with a total offering of 1174 different types, including some in Chinese. This list does include those specific to other areas of the world and many domain types that are not yet released.
GoDaddy also offers a pre-registration feature for descriptive TLDs that are in pre-release. This may allow you to grab a specific domain name before your competition.
They do offer privacy for domain names registered through them, but this is an additional charge of $7.99 per domain per year.
While GoDaddy has some really good deals for the first year of registration, they were the most expensive for every domain we tested amongst all the registrars we reviewed.
