    Who do you register your domain names through?

    Just wondering who you register your domain names through. I've used a variety of companies in the past such as 1and1, Fasthosts, 123-Reg, etc. Are some better than others, are there some to avoid?

    I now use daily.co.uk for domain registration (comes with free mailbox, forwarding, catch-all etc). Had some self-made issues which they sorted out very, very quickly for me on more than one occasion. Very happy with their service.

    I've always found easily.co.uk pretty efficient

    Used to use 1and1.co.uk when I first started in IT. Recently tried moving my domains over to my hosting provider and I've had no end of trouble with them (1and1 that is). They just don't seem to want to release the domain, no matter how many times I contact them, or how many times I try in the contract.1and1.co.uk area.

    Doing my head in, and for this experience alone I wouldn't recommend them.

    I've got a number of domains with 1&1. Haven't had any problems with them.

    Joker.com for all mine. Not the cheapest, but you get a lot of options.

    Now signed up with my personal .net domain for another five years for about £20.

    I use one.com, I believe their German for my external web hosting. It's about £25 for a year with a .net domain, unlimited space, few SQL DBs,5GB transfer per month. Frankly I don't use it anymore, but for the money it's always useful to have. Hosting it at home off my Aspire Revo is fine, but I like to keep my ports firmly closed.
