LWS domain name
LWS (Ligne Web Service SARL) is a high reputation french web hosting company. I was their customer since 2015. Here is my review for their domain registration services.

They were founded in 1999 and claim to have over 195 000 websites hosted. LWS is a reputable company and is a good alternative for french hosting companies like OVH, PlanetHoster, …

LWS domain name service review
As a domain name registration provider, LWS was a long time ago a domain name reseller from eNom / ISPProxy / … but today they are accredited domain name registration provider by ICANN, and they sell .com directly as a Verisign registrar.
Their support helpdesk is very reactive, and they offer 2GB free shared hosting on each domain name where you can host static websites (PHP not supported) and up to 2 emails accounts. You can also set redirections both for emails and websites.
They provide also EPP transfer code automatically (no human intervention needed) if you want to transfer out your domain name.
My main issue with is that they don’t have Glue records for some domain extensions, like .fr and .be.
