Which gTLD registrars do you use and why?


I've been using for a long time. I like it because it is North America, because the registrar has the best ratio of reviews to price.

Although, I have domains at GoDaddy (not my fault, I would never have gotten there myself). I want to try Google as a registrar, everything is transparent, clean and there are no tricky payments. And there is free privacy.

Here I saw a significant price reduction.
But who is this register and can you trust them? Perhaps this is some kind of one-time promotion for registration and transfer, and then they extend the price, this is often practiced.


Currently, the Charleston Road Registry company operates under the Google Registry trademark and offers customers to register a domain in one of five publicly available proprietary TLDs (.page, .app, .how, .soy or .みんな, and in one of two hundred other TLDs available through partners.
The price of various domains (without premium coefficients) ranges from $8 to $350.

The Google Registry website is available on the traditional domain for registrars or more official .

What features does the registrar offer:
private registration at no additional cost;
forwarding email in your domain;
simple domain forwarding;
custom subdomains;
using Google's DNS infrastructure;
adding and managing resource records: A, AAAA, CNAME, MX, NS, PTR, SPF, SRV, TXT;
using complex records for integration with Google App Engine, subdomain redirection and G Suite configuration;
adding and managing DNS servers;
TTL setting, domain blocking, etc.;
support in chat, by email or by phone.

However, there is a big BUT: you must have a billing address in one of the 15 countries currently supported (Australia, Brazil, Great Britain, Vietnam, India, Indonesia, Spain, Italy, Canada, Mexico, Netherlands, USA, Thailand, France or Japan).
If your country is not on this list, you can leave a request to be notified.

Google Registry has a self-written Nomulus engine running "under the hood". There is news  about the transition of the engine to open source under the Apache 2.0 license.
In short, Nomulus is a Java engine that is tightly integrated into the Google Cloud Platform: it runs on the App Engine, and uses Google Cloud Datastore as a database; this gives it high availability, and easy horizontal scaling.
