I have more than 8 domains registered with Godaddy and only 2 domains with namecheap. I find the godaddy lot quicker with the settings and also easy to use. It's pity that they don't have free name privacy which namecheap offers you. I personally have found namecheap to be lot more better and cheaper in the long run. But still godady has it's benefits too.

Which one of them do you choose - Namecheap or Godaddy?

I hate GoDaddy's interface. They lost me me as a customer years. I have a few domains at NameCheap and trust them. I have had no problems with them. I also have used NameSilo, Name.com and my absolute favorite registrar is Epik, though.

Stay away from godaddy!

My top choices are NameSilo and Dynadot.

Dynadot being my favorite but I just wish they had a reseller option!

I used both in the passed and Namecheap is the cheapest option in the long term. When buying the domain I found that the older the domain the more you pay for it. Crazy with who I am with. Remember when I paid $8 and now it's $15 a year.

Godaddy is good but support is slow and not good I found and yet Namecheap is that cheaper but not as easy to get around as GoDaddy. Not to mention that after a year or so I left them.

I don't use any other registrar other than Namecheap. I have been using it for more than 5+ years and i am really happy with their service. No plans on switching to other service provider.

$13 for .com renewal? They might be cheap when you register domains from them but the renewals are a lot more.

I've used both Namecheap and GoDaddy over the years and always preferred Namecheap. They just seemed more professional and easier to use. GoDaddy's interface looks 'spammy'. I don't use either anymore, Porkbun is much cheaper.

I would want to say Namecheap here. I haven't used it so, I am not entirely sure about the service much but it should be better than GoDaddy and the renewal rates, are not too much either.

For Godaddy, the interface is good and all, but in the long run, you would want to save some bucks rather than use a service which got a cool interface. It's pretty reliable and I have heard the same about Namecheap over the years. So, I believe both are good and if you want to save money, then go with Namecheap or if you prefer easy navigation and interface, then you need to select, GoDaddy.

Either is workable with me. I am currently hosting a few domains with GoDaddy, as I got a couple of good deals on the domains I wanted. If I feel like I ever need to change, I know which options will cost me more than GoDaddy on the renewal, so I know to stay away from them.
