Please list some credible domain registrars supporting wildcard domains. Now I am with GoDaddy, and want to move to another one with the feature I need. Thanks.

Do you mean a host? Registrars done have anything to do with DNS. –  MDMarra Feb 17 '11 at 13:00
I am developing a GAE application and want users have their own subdomains. So, the only thing I need is to create a wildcard cname record like *.mydomain.com to use it with my app. –  Sergey Basharov Feb 17 '11 at 13:03
That is a function of DNS, not the registrar. All that a registrar does is sell you the domain name. Some companies like GoDaddy can offer additional services, such as DNS and hosting, but that is totally separate from their operation as a registrar. –  MDMarra Feb 17 '11 at 14:17
+1 for MarkM. The services you need are not the responsibility of the registrar. The service that you need is DNS which can be addon. –  Sameer Feb 17 '11 at 14:29

Any decent DNS host is going to allow this, for example http://www.easydns.com

This isn't a registrar issue as many have pointed out: Your DNS provider (not the domain registrar, although the two are often the same these days) is what needs to be changed here. EasyDNS is one possibility; Hosting your own DNS server is another... –  voretaq7 Feb 17 '11 at 15:38
Since he doesn't seem entirely sure of the distinction between the registrar and the DNS host, I wouldn't really recommend that he host his own DNS. –  devicenull Feb 18 '11 at 3:19
