I used to have a really cheap domain from Namecheap before, and I used Cloudflare as my DNS. I'm going to buy a new domain, and Spaceship seems to be the cheapest registrar for my domain right now (I'm only buying for one year), however they seem really new. Are there any differences between Namecheap and Spaceship, and should I use one over the other?

You don’t need your registrar to have anything in regards to SSL, you can do it all yourself

I know, I'm just wondering about the differences between the two registrars. I edited the post to make it less confusing.
