Usually registrars also provide optional services related to your domain name, such as email, web hosting and name servers.
For some registrars, the search results include a star rating (¤¤¤¤¤). The star rating is based on an evaluation of registrars performed by Traficom. The aim is to make the selection of a domain name registrar easier for customers and promote information security in registrars’ operations. Taking part in the evaluation was voluntary for registrars. If there is no star rating, it does not mean that the registrar in question would perform any better or worse than the rated ones.
Traficom's star rating for registrars:
¤ = 16-49 points
¤¤ = 50-83 points
¤¤¤ = 84-117 points
¤¤¤¤ = 118-151 points
