I transferred one domain to them, and there were some
problems. register.com didn't want to give it up.  I was pretty
frustrated by the experience, because it wasn't worth the $20 I was
saving at the same time register.com shouldn't be allowed to hassle
people this way. godaddy didn't do very much, and who could expect
them to $8/year.  I'm not sure I would go through the experience
