Hello all,

Would appreciate if someone could suggest some genuine domain registering websites please.

Any help much appreciated. Thanks

Well there are a lot of genuine ones. http://www.icann.org/en/registrars/accredited-list.html However just because they are on the list does not mean they are really good. Some of these are known to be troublesome when it comes to transferring your domain to another registrar or other such things. You may want a registrar who provides "private registration" to give yourself a bit of anonymity and other such services.

My general advice would be to avoid registering through an authorized reseller of an accredited registrar. This often included web-hosts that also provide domain registration as a service. Things can get ugly if they decide they want to keep you as a customer even if you want to move on.

Go Daddy is very popular, but they are not without their problems. I use Network Solutions, but there are plenty of complaints against them too. Name.com is fairly well known.

I would avoid 1and1 at all costs. For more on that see this old thread

Since this is a freeware site, if you want to get a completely free domain name and having a top level is not important to you, you can register .tk's for free forever. http://www.dot.tk/en/pageA00.html Just be aware that because of this .tk domains are well known for hosting many "unwanted" "spammy" sites.
