U namesilo.com it seems to me the simplest and most convenient interface, as well as low prices for domains, free privacy and web forwarding. Plus their marketplace: low commission on the sale of domains - 3.0% - 7.5%.

NameSilo is a world-famous company that ranks among the top 15 domain registrars in the world. This is a registrar company accredited by ICANN. NameSilo claims that they currently control over 6 million domains. Their goal is to create the best type of registrar that will be easier to use and cheaper to buy.

Even if the hosting options they provide are quite limited (for instance, there are no VPS or dedicated servers), they have a great argument in favor of this: they try to focus on one element (mainly domains), and not distribute their attention to several reasons (email support, web design or other types of services) that may negatively affect their purpose.
But, some customers may complain about this, saying that there are other companies that provide both domain name registration and web hosting services, and they manage to do it properly.

In addition to domain names, NameSilo offers the following products:
