    Since this registrar has chosen to advertise on this forum and perhaps gain reputability, potential customers may need reminding that..

    There is no control panel access

    that you ordered domain name registration only (Free Parked domain).
    The domain name has been registered for you. At present control panels
    are not supplied for "domain name registration only" orders - only for
    E-mail or hosting accounts.
    In the unlikely event that you wish to transfer away from UKDomains !
    The release of each domain name is charged at £17.50 inc. vat. + fax This is to cover admin costs which are incurred.Quote

    Doesn't even sound legal to me. What a nasty little company.

    I don't really see how you can complain.
    Unlike many other companies, their terms are all stated on easy to find pages. They will register domains at less than cost, so they must be making their money somewhere. You were expecting a free lunch?

    None. I've got my own TAG, largely because I was trapped like that, years ago.
    I'm not saying they are being fair, but at least they say so.

    O right googoo ads, never get that far down. :p

    Still dont think you can say "Since this registrar has chosen to advertise on this forum" as they have not chosen to.. but merely been picked out of Google Adsense.

    I believe it is affiliatefuture.co.uk

    "The New UKDomains.com now pays an amazing 20% on all hosting and domain sales."
