    Who do people use?

    I use 123-reg at the moment. Wondered if there is anyone better out there?

    Only hold 12 UK names at present.

    Get aay from 123-reg as quick as you can. Avoid Host Europe companies like the plague. Have a search of the forum for details why. I can't recommend another company as I use my own tag, but Daily were my previous choice. Low-Reg seems to have a following too.

    Definitely avoid 123-reg. Not just incompetent but arrogant with it. I used to be a customer of theirs, but never again after their mistakes cost me and they refused to take responsibility. They're also no longer the cheapest for uk's.

    If it's cheapness you're after, Namecheap are extremely popular worldwide. Their control panel is reasonably good. You'll need to use Nominet to update any UK contact details, but that's not a problem. Their support has always resolved my problems but I must confess, live chatting with Olga or Orithyia and their glamorous profile pictures can sometimes feel a bit Russian Brides!

    Daily.co.uk come highly recommended. Not the cheapest but sometimes it's worth paying a bit more. They're a company who will do their damndest to resolve any problems, and they're British.

    I hold a TAG, but I'm not a Nominet Member, so for renewals I transfer to LCN, there support is amazing, they have Live Chat during the day, and transferring out is automated, the last two I transferred were instantaneous.

    There prices for .uk domains are £5.95 a year £10.74 for two years, so there not the cheapest by far, but make up for that with there support and hosting options.

    The longer you register for, the worse value. Not sure they've thought their pricing through...
