    Suggestions please for a hassle-free .com registrar/reseller for me to use primarily for domaining. My small number of current .coms are fine where they are (often actually running as proper websites), but for more domaining-oriented higher-volume registration of .coms I wonder if I should go somewhere else. The scenario :

    - UK sole trader, HMRC registered, not VAT registered, not a limited company
    - not overly fussed about privacy options
    - want speedy and easy-to-administer purchases and transfers in/out
    - want to avoid, if possible, the "60 day" restrictions
    - want to pay using a UK sterling bank account or credit card
    - want zero physical transatlantic paperwork for transfers, ID proof, etc (electronic is obviously fine)

    Suggestions appreciated - thanks
    David

    60 day restriction on a GTLD transfer isn't something imposed by registrars - it's an ICANN restriction as far as I am aware.

    As much as people moan about them, I like Godaddy for GTLD's providing you can get 'Executive account ' status - usually requires a minimum of 400 domains though

    Thanks both of you. I'll probably get going at GoDaddy and gradually build up to the threshold over time.
