Domain Registrar recommendation

Hi all,

Over the past 10 years or so, I've been dealing with a relatively small
registrar in my local area for my personal domains (
Unfortunately, they can not provide IPv6 glue.

A few months ago, I registered a handful more personal domains (which
are currently idle) at, as apparently they can provide IPv6

I am going to set up one of the new domains as strictly IPv6 only for
statistics gathering. The point is, is that I haven't 'configured' any
of the domains at GoDaddy yet, so I am not experienced in regards to
their reliability.

Before I migrate my primary domain ( to a new registrar so I
can have v6 glue, I'm looking for feedback on whether it is advisable to
move it to GoDaddy, or if I should look elsewhere.

I've heard horror stories about GoDaddy domains randomly being shut
down, and it taking weeks of circular dancing in order to justify having
it re-enabled. I can not have that happening. Moreover, I want as smooth
as possible transition

All feedback appreciated.
