I've had all the problems.... domains not showing in control panel etc... but I've always been able to resolve these without too much trouble. Today I register a Domain - all done, invoice received but it doesn't show in the whois as mine. After 15 minutes, give 123 a prod - an hour and 30 mins later it's there. My guess is, if I hadn't acted - it would remain unregistered. Everything else I can live with - but to register a Domain and then find it's not actually registered to me because of a 123 Reg system problem - I can't. Sorry 123... I've stuck with it while others have long since gone. Time to move on - bye. PS... any one notice at the 123 check out it now says it can take 24 hours for the registration process.
