    Recomend me a new registrar for my .sch.uk domain

    I need to move my school domain from its current registrar RMPLC to someone who will allow me to change my own DNS settings and control my own subdomains...

    Recommend me a registrar who understands .sch.uk addresses...

    I've talked to a couple of registrar companies who don't get it and its frustrating me.

    Cheers.

    We changed it to our self, do you have a reliable enough connection and a backup connection from a different providor to host both the name servers on?

    We use Zen, partly as they are our local company, but they have a nice simple web interface where you can change all the settings online.
    Very straightforward.

    sadly, we are on a single line with no access into our own router as it owned by swgfl - we are working on that as a seperate issue!

    Has anyone else used Host-it? they seem to be the only registrar who come high up the list in google who understand the sch.uk domains.

    We moved .sch.uk directly from RMPLC to CS New Media Web Hosting - UK Based Web Hosting, Reseller Hosting, VPS & Dedicated Servers
    very simple - @CSNM-Carl understands the process inside out

    If you search the forums there are plenty of people happy with the service CSNewmedia offer.

    RM's insistence that any DNS change requests be faxed through on headed paper has always struck me as a little bizzare and poorly thought through. I would have thought that emailing from the domain in question is a much more secure and obvious method, rather than letting anyone who's ever received a letter from our school fake up a request and fax it in!

    that and the fact it takes them about 3 weeks to do anything with it, and if you ask for anything a tiny bit complicated (like the routing of a subdomain) they bork it.

    CS New Media for me as well Carl knows .sch.uk domains no question and his DNS is excellent to manage and just works.

    We'll do it if you like. We normally bundle it into our broadband costs but it's only £50 a year to host a .sch.uk domain on its own and give you access to our control panel.

    Bump just to say thanks to @CSNM-Carl who put up with all my daft questions and badgering, as now I have all my DNS in an easy to use control panel with no fax machine required couldn't be happier!

    @CSNM-Carl is the man, look no further for .sch.uk. seriously (and I'm not him with a different account, although I am aware I'm starting to sound like a cheesey american advert)

    he made the process so painless.
