    Just looking for a reality check.

    Anyone got any views on the best UK company (may as well keep the money in the UK) where I can set up .co.uk / .uk and .com bearing in mind the following :

    i. UK owned company
    ii. Reliable and trustworthy
    iii. Ability to do a 10 year reg for .uk and .com
    iv.Total management of domain and DNS
    v. A fair price when buying long periods
    vi. No ridiculous fees for transferring out or when it comes to renewal

    I used to use Fasthosts - but they're just ripping everyone off with renewal fee prices.So have moved all of those.

    I am a tag holder, but I want this at arms length so can't be on my tag - plus I can't do .com anyway.

    Any thoughts?

    another plus for 20i in general. Brilliant hosting service... great support. DOnt have domains with them but worth checking out their prices.

    I used Yay for all of my domains until I got my tag a few months ago, I'm still using them for .com

    Thanks for the links - i have heard good things about 20i before - so will take a look.

    Much rather keep in with a UK company - keep the cash flowing round the UK :D

    Thanks all.

    Netistrar 100%

    Whenever I have needed to use outside services for .com or .uk even, I've used Netistrar. I got in early when it launched and got on a VIP plan, the .COM are such a great price.
