    I was wondering what registrar is the best to use in terms of being free from US jurisdiction. The domains I have are .com's, which are controlled by the ICANN which means it doesnt matter what registrar I am using in case they want to seize it. However, there is indeed a difference between using Godaddy and a more "independent" registrar. I have found a few on the web, one is, I found it from 's, and I also found, which was 's, both are quite "risky" and I was wondering if it made a difference between these two. Instra is registered in AU, and Safenames is UK.

    BookMyName and Gandi are both in France regulated by French laws only.

    Maybe, instead of a registrar, you should be asking which is the safest country, it doesn't really matter the registrars brand when you are looking at domain seizure, it is the laws of the country they are in what matters.

    Also make sure they have a privacy option that hides your personal details from a whois search.
    Otherwise anybody in web can see your name, address, etc.
    I registered my domain with which offers this feature for few bucks and one time.
    However, i am located in EU, therefore I was not particularly interested to avoid US/CAN jurisdiction but more to avoid a registrar in my country.
