Believe it or not, I have been using Network Solutions.  They seem pricey, but 
the service is excellent, unlike their cheaper competitors I have worked with.  
A couple of years ago, I was solicited, by US Mail, to renew with a competitor 
who I mistook for Network Solutions.  For the asking, they dropped my price to 
a max of $15/domain 'forever'.  While that may still be more expensive than 
others, the service is worth it.
