I can't say I agree with that, after reading the site

The site lists several horror stories of people who have had their
domain names taken hostage by GoDaddy with no warning or notice.  Want
the domain back?  That will be a $199 ransom--er--"reactivation fee".
Want to transfer the domain after it's been taken hostage?  That'll be
a $75 "administrative fee".  A quick check of their forums reveals a
steady stream of complaints about GoDaddy.

As for recommendations, until my webhost became a reseller of domain
registration services, I used to do business with  I had a
pretty good experience with them, including one situation where I
dropped the ball on a domain and let it lapse.  I called them up and
paid the registration over the phone--they didn't even charge me a
"reactivation fee".  And when it was time to leave, they provided me
with the necessary EPP codes, no questions asked.
