    Worst company ever in my opinion. I had so many problems with them charging me for services/domains no longer with them.

    Glad I moved everything...

    Great decision. Despite my bias, I always felt those ads were pretty scammy since you're really talking about a tiny fractional chance of registering most of them at unknown dates in the future (could be years easily)

    Plus so many of the new gtld are holding auctions or keeping generics in reserve, the likelihood of actually getting anything "for reg fee" drops further still.

    1&1 got spanked : that's made my Christmas too :D

    Check your bank/cc statements guys : these jokers LOVE to continue debiting you for kit you've long cancelled (and that's a mission, like everything else with them)

    A quick letter to Barclaycard with a copy of the cancelation email, and a £441 chargeback, happily

    Never again !

    "Number of complaints: 1" - why doesn't that surprise me?! :) I wonder who "told" on them. Anyone want to own up....
