123 Reg Price Promise to you:123-reg.co.uk

  1. We have the lowest price for domains in the World.
  2. No transfer fee to move your domains to any other provider.
  3. Double the difference back if you find anyone cheaper for the same features!

Other important features offered FREE:

All prices exclude VAT at 20% * or whatever the govt arbitrarily decides the new rate of VAT is. (nothing much we can do about that)

Unfortunately they do bulk discounts, which is something I don't approve of as domains are special personal things! But let's not hold that against them. They did me a decent deal on the one name I needed to buy originally, and that's what matters. That's why I have put this affiliate link on my site, so You can buy Your Own name...

Web Hosting with Web Fusion is now also available. The 123 Reg company is now part of Pipex, who offer a variety of hosting arrangements for business and personal use, according to your bandwidth for your website. My advice is to get your www domain name first, and then when that's safely sorted out, come back to this page and make your decision on hosting.

When you are renewing your domain, renew well in advance, and check a few days after you have renewed on the whois to make absolutely certain that the domain has been properly renewed. Of course you should never let a domain expire! You should also make sure the nameservers are correct. 123-reg have been known to foul this up, but to be fair this doesn't happen very often, fortunately.

Here's some more shpiel from 123-Reg... "About 123-reg: We don't like to boast, but... We've registered over 2 million domain names and host over 1.7 million websites, making us the largest domain provider in the UK.

** 123-Reg can register proper domains such as .net , .co.uk , .tv , etc. They also state "We can register .uk.com, .uk.net, gb.com, gb.net and .eu.com domains". Please bear in mind these are not "proper domains". They are subdomains.

* Catch-all E-mail forwarding - It may no longer be true that 123-Reg offer free catch-all e-mail forwarding, according to a helpful contributor. However, there is a difference between having a hosting at 123-Reg and buying a domain there. The solution recommended by Zyra is as follows: Buy a domain at 123-Reg, then have it hosted at Vivostar, and then you have catch-all e-mail without having to pay any extra.

+ The 123 Reg affiliate program has a curious quirk: You are not allowed to get affiliate commission on getting/renewing your own domains at 123-Reg. However, there is a solution: We affiliates just renew our domains using each-other's affiliate links! That seems fair, doesn't it?


We get on well with 123 Reg, as they are a well-trusted domain company. However, Webfusion does not enjoy such good a press here. Their hosting has been shown to be less than reliable!


That's nice! I must be doing something right on the good promotion of 123-reg, as their affiliate marketing team have honoured me by sending me a Xmas card and a box of chocolates for Xmas!
