+1 for GoDaddy.  I've been moving my domains to them for a while now, as 
they renew, and am very happy with them.

Not only is GoDaddy a U.S. company, your customer service calls are 
handled not outsourced or offshored (you actually speak to someone who 
speaks your language!) and when there is a hold time, you can press a 
button to turn off the hold music -- now that's thinking about customer 
service :-)

I'm still a bit put off by all their pressure sales to convince me to 
use them for hosting and email and SEO and DNS and everything else they 
sell, but their prices are the best and the control panel does 
everything I need it to do.

Many of my domains are still at OpenSRS (and some will always stay 
there) but their prices are too high, these days.
