    I've found their panel amateurish and difficult to do much with.

    I'd suggest namecheap.com unless you're after a .uk.

    • They are cheap.
    • 123 provide an easy means to fully control the domain, unlike some other registrars I have used.
    • It separates the domain name from the webhost. This makes it much easier to point your domain at a different server should the need arise.

    I always have used Name.com as i think there control panel is excellent, saying that i have used 123-Reg for domain's in which someone transfered over to me, and there control panel is ok, but it does take a little getting used to i suppose.

    Why? From what I've heard support is terrible, prices are OK for .UK but for any other extension they are not that cheap.

    I assume you are saying register the domains with 123-REG to keep them separate from the host? I've always disagreed with this statement not because we offer domain registration (we make peanuts on them anyway) but because if you don't have any faith/trust in your chosen hosting provider for your domain registration needs why bother to use them at all?

    Just ensure your chosen provider registers the domains in your own name, address, email etc and you should not have any problems moving them away.

    Just to clarify this was a misunderstanding on "Wallgo"'s part, our servers are already very secure. However as he has a hosting package on a Windows package certain recommended requirements for Joomla/Moodle are not available. We fully support Joomla on our Linux Hosting.

    I recomend them because I've used them for around 3 years and never had any issues, so i have no reason to dislike them.

    I wasn't agreeing to the fact you should always keep your domain seperate, because as you pointed out, if you have no trust registering a domain with them why would you trust them for hosting.

    I did indeed say that, several posts above. Never had a problem with 123-reg, and there are a few other registrars it would seem are also fine. (I also know of hosting providers / resellers who use them and just add their commision on top).

    I would still recommend separation from the host because quite often ,especially in the entry market (even on dedicated) you are balancing 'faith' with price.

    I may hear that XXXX provider rocks, but if I can get a similar spec at a quarter the price I may well take the risk on that, especially if it isn't for something mission critical (which it invariably isn't) - heck the VLE can afford to go down because worse case I can switch the DNS back to a local server while it gets sorted - a level of control not always offered by hosting providers with a vested interest in your business.

    I think the best advice is "Expect the best, plan for the worst, and prepare to be surprised".

    It's prudent to take precautions.

    YMMV.

    Hey dude,

    I highly recommend one of these websites depending on what you want:

    - OVH - Individuals. Hosting and Internet Solutions - OVH individual - Gives our free .co.uk domain names.

    - Namecheap.com - Cheap domain name registration, renewal and transfers - Free SSL Certificates - Web Hosting - Free URL Forwarding, e-mail forwarding and DNS services are included with our cheap domain names registration service - VERY cheap and comes with whois protection

    - 123-reg | Domain names | Domain name registration - very reliable and great customer services

    For webhosting I would VERY highly recommend:

    www.ChampHosts.com, apart from being suprisingly cheap, the service is great. I have been with ChampHosts for about 2 years and have had no problems what so ever.

    I would also agree on CS New Media's hosting services, I have about 3 or 4 Joomla sites with them at present and they are all fine.
