Which registrar is better/best for .sg domain

Dear all,

I'm looking to take up the SME Domain Name Reservation offer (all ACRA-registered businesses without a domain name will save up to $60 for the first two years of registration for their first domain name, http://sme.sgnic.sg/index.html)

There are a total of 7 participating registrars:
Adicio Pte Ltd - http://www.adicio.net

Cybersite Pte Ltd - http://www.cybersite.com.sg

IP Mirror Pte Ltd - http://www.ipmirror.com

NewMedia Express Pte Ltd - http://www.newmediaexpress.com

Vooju Pte Ltd -http://www.vooju.com

Web Commerce Communications (Singapore) Pte Ltd - http://cms.webnic.cc/SDR/enew_jan08_SGNIC.htm

Webvisions Pte Ltd - http://www.webvisions.com/smednr/

I can't find sufficient info about these registrars on the web, thus really hope to get helpful inputs, personal experience etc, from the forum. Reliability is my main concern.

Thanks in advance

I have experience with Webnic purchasing bulk domain.

I think they are quite good. However, I am not too sure they allowed register only one domain at a time.

Thanks for the reply,

I did a review thru and thinking of going with ipmirror but I need whois privacy protection. Got it for free when I register domain names at namecheap.com, this keep my registration information private. Out of the 7 registrars, only ipmirror has this protection but at a high price of more than $100 for 2 years...

Can I get the domain name from ipmirror then purchase the whois privacy protection from elsewhere and tied to my domain name?

p.s. Really disappointed with the pricing from local registrars

I afraid that you could not register the .sg domain name and bundle the Whois ID protection separately.

I believe you will be able to register that domain name on the euro-dns.

Buyers of whois privacy services would want to weigh their own needs against the depth & breadth of services that are included with (or excluded from) each whois privacy “price package”: e.g. legal setup and structure of an entity to act as proxy, systems security and reliability, good usability & centralized management of domain name portfolio, dependable dedicated services to screen & coordinate incoming communications and ongoing efforts in dealing with requests from law enforcement agencies and other interested parties. It is also worth noting that costs incurred by whois privacy providers would also vary depending on the domain name space (due to differing rules & costs imposed at registry level), so particularly for entities with a portfolio of brands to protect, strategic considerations & careful planning would be of utmost importance .
