Windows 7: Good Domain Name Company?

Good Domain Name Company?


I am wanting to change the name to my website in the near future, and so before anything else I wanted to buy a proper (paid) domain name for it.

I am currently using - who have been wonderful! For a free service, its never ever gone down in the 9 months I have used it.

My hosting is through HostGator - who don't sell domain names. So I need to find another company to by one from.

The ones I know are:
123 reg
Fasthosts (best price so far)

The problem is, I usually just go out and read reviews - but it seems like every company is 'crap'. It's like people only write a review when the service goes down, not when the service is good.

I was wondering if anyone on SevenForums has their own website, and if so who do did they buy their domain with?


(for reference my website: Information Emporium - Home - still rather incomplete!)
