    where to register a domain name

    anyone know a cheap / hassle free place to register a new domain name? most places seem to be £3 for .co.uk and £8 for a .com

    also what if any increase in traffic can i expect from a .com over a co.uk of the same name.

    IE boots.com vs boots.co.uk

    re: where to register a domain name

    I've used 123reg and never had any real problems.


    EDIT - about a dozen domains, over about 5 or 6 years.

    re: where to register a domain name

    The increase in traffic would be down to advertising if anything.

    I've only ever used 123-reg and they're excellent.

    I just registered apex-pc.co.uk for 2 years at a cost of £5.58

    It's 4.98*

    re: where to register a domain name

    Another vote for 123reg. I have about 10-15 domains registered through them and they make all control of them so easy.

    re: where to register a domain name

    Same here, 123-reg

    We have around 150 domains registered with them at work - never had an issue. I use them at home too.

    re: where to register a domain name

    123-reg for me - although I have also used NetscanUK who are good - but a tad pricy. I use them for a mail host.

    Re: where to register a domain name

    As a little example of the things I like about 123 reg.

    I have a domain that was set to run out today. I have received emails for the past month from them letting me know so that If I wanted to cancel I could then they auto updated it for me

    THen Another domain I registered a couple of weeks agao I had the domain registered and DNS sorted on it and working within the hour

    i've used oneandone.co.uk in the past, they were quite reasonable but havent done a comparison of these type of sites for a while. ive never had any problems with them.

    Re: where to register a domain name

    For .uk 123-reg are great but too expensive for com/net/org, I use name.com for those as they do free WHOIS privacy.
