    Personal Domain Registration

    Hi all

    I was wondering if anybody could recommend a decent company for both registering a domain name, and providing some basic DNS services.

    I have always used 1&1 in the past, but their service is degrading rapidly and I am trying to pull all of my business away from them.

    All I need to do is register a basic .co.uk website, and have a mail forwarder to forward all mail sent to anything@xxxxx.co.uk to one of my e-mail addresses. I don't need to be able to reply with the .co.uk e-mail address. My gmail account will do fine for this.

    Thanks

    Tom

    I use DYNDNS for other things but can it forward my registered domain to an IP address? i.e. NOT one of the DYNDNS .bounceme.net or similar.

    I forgot to mention in my first post that I don't want to have to pay for any hosting. I will be looking after that myself, I just need to register a domain and have it pointed at my own server.

    Thanks

    Tom

    Supanames.com - used them a few times, or 123-reg.co.uk - they're good and cheap too..

    yes, i use dyndns to get the domain name and then point at my own server using the customdns service (as i haven't got a static ip) If you have got a static it's dead easy
