I've always registered my domains using two companies. The first being the behemoth GoDaddy for my .com's and the second being TransIP for my .nl's.
However one domain remained with Protagonist and that has been bugging me for some time. Since they don't actually provide the service I want (ssh access) and the fact being that I want everything centralized.
So! The time for ignoring it is over. Today I initiated the transfer and signed a hosting cancellation form. After about 5 years its time to ditch Protagonist for my very own Linode instance.
Sure it takes a bit more work and you have to know what you're doing. Though if you've got multiple hosting plans with multiple providers, its almost always cheaper and less of a hassle. Well.. for me at least.
I will also be moving my email accounts to gmail or google apps, but I haven't decided yet which is best. I'll let you know how that works out.
