    I am acquiring the odd .com name and am wondering if anybody can recommend a registrar to transfer them in to? Obviously cheaper the better but want them to be somewhere that isn't going to give me grief if I choos to sell them at a later date. Would also need to be able to set up simple nameserver changes to point at Sedo or wherever.

    Thanks
    Stephen.

    123-reg.co.uk or godaddy.com, I had no problems with either of them when transferring a .com or .co.uk

    I have used registerfly.com in the past. They are $9.99 to start but after you buy your 1st name you will get weekly specials that allow you to buy for $7.99 with free whois protection.

    Their control panel is easy to use and allows bulk changes/transfers etc.

    I have used godaddy but found their customer services to be completely useless, even worse than 1&1's

    To get Godaddy.com discount you need promo codes. Just search google for them.

    Ok, rather than PMs...

    Just do a search for domain name in gg and use the link you find at the top/side ;) Simple really.

    If you're going to end up with 100+ .com domains, consider using Fabulous.com. On the wholesale side, their pricing is very keen and their support is great.

    Yes but if you're buying loads and budget is low then $6.95 is handy! Well i say $6.95, but it's actually $7.20 as they add a $0.25 ICANN fee on top in the checkout!
