I've been using namecheap.com for several years now...  works well, and have
had zero issues with them.  I also have some web hosting with them, and have
found their support to be excellent (they literally helped migrate a
database from another domain and hosting service to a new domain on their
servers about an hour, and have handled several other requests in minutes).

Another friend has been using GKG for several years - he seems quite happy
with them.

So far it sounds a like a 2-2 for both namecheap and GKG. :)
