In most cases, my main criteria for choosing domain registrars is the price. The reputation of the company comes next, and the services bundled with the domain comes in third, and the options for renewal is fourth.
Even if the price is right, if the company seems to be shoddy and/or shady, I go for the higher-priced registration.
If they throw in free private registration, that's a definite plus point; more so if there's a free email account, etc., etc.
And, of course, I do not like to be tied in. If the lower price and extras mean that I must stay with them for a set period of time, you can be sure that I am not going to register my domain with them.
