A domain name is the heart of every website. Yes, the heart! It is the domain name that turns IP addresses into human-friendly text.
Since your domain name is the heart of your website, you need to manage it well. And who does the management for you? That is the work of the domain name registrars. In this article, we will look at five top domain name registrars. Read on.

With GoDaddy, you get a five-page website based on one of their templates, blogging tools, a photo album and an email account with storage of 1GB. GoDaddy doesn’t offer free private registration, but if you register more than four domains, it is free for all the domains. A year registration with GoDaddy costs $11.99.
- NameCheap. NameCheap offers one of the cheapest deals in town. Their customer service is like no other. They also offer value-added packages.
