I got mine at Namecheap.

Godaddy will just harass the heck out of you with emails. Even if you cancel.

I guy domains through godaddy, and host the sites other places. IMHO Godaddy has the cleanest domain/dns management yet.

I went with namecheap as godaddy seems to play bad tricks to "unfaithful" customers ( DO NOT CHECK DOMAIN NAME AVAILABILITY ON THEIR SITE, they will stole it )

Also namecheap has a clean interface, Dynamic DNS, one click Google Apps ...

GoDaddy is not a "standard" by any means in my opinion. They simply market their name more (and with what, I wonder...) and are more known because of it.

I wish I still had the website/sources I used when I went searching, but that was like a year and a half ago. It listed a bunch of factors about numerous domain name registrants, and GoDaddy had a bunch of bad remarks. Offhand, I found this (although it's not something I found when I was originally looking).

http://nodaddy.com/

That being said, many people do go with them and have no issues, so I can't speak from experience how they are. I just went with another after doing some reading up on it (and have also been satisfied with my choice).
