“Just don't bother....”

Great when it works...

Extremely poor customer service.

I have been a customer of 123-reg for about 2 years now, when I first decided to set up my own business working from home. I saw some reviews last year on here and thought 'that hasn't been my experience' and made a mental note to write a positive review in support of them, as at that point I...

Price, downtime, customer service.

I recently designed a website for my mother, who uses 123-reg to host her business. Initially, 123-reg seems to be a very attractive bargain, boasting clear aesthetic quality, several pre-made layouts which can be customised at the user's will, amongst many more features. It certainly appears to...

cheap web design

some names are taken already

Having read a few opinions about how bad this site is , I would like to write about how pleased I was to use 123-reg.co.uk. I made a web page about six months ago as you get to make a free webpage with Aol. I decided to make one which has links to winning prizes and earning cash on line. A...

Cheap, very controllable and free transfer away

Poor web forwarding options

I've been using 123-reg.co.uk's domain name registration services for over a month now, and I'm impressed. Both traditional DNS based set up and web forwarding are available, and it is simple to change the settings on the web based control panel. A domain name means that your website address is...

I had been looking around for a domain name hosting service, and 123-reg seemed to good to be true. When you first go to the site it looks like there's lots of statements to which you think "What's the catch", but there isn't one. It only took a few minutes to go through the registration...

Cheap as chips, useful tools

Layout can be a bit confusing at times

I first ran into 123-reg.co.uk about 3 years ago. I was running a retro-gaming site that was dealing with ZX Spectrum computers and I needed to register a domain name that had both e-mail and web forwarding to some webspace that I already had. I looked at their prces and as I wanted a .org.uk...

“123 reg as easy as 123”

cheap, reliable, easy to use interface

not sure of any

Was looking for a domain name mainly to play about with and build a website. I went for a .co.uk domain name but went elsewhere for webhosting due to cost vs what it will be used for. The hardest part of registering a domain name with them was between the pc desk and the chair - yes me ! I spent...

“3 Steps to Hell”

Easy to set up, cheap domain prices

No Customer Service, expensive web hosting

Step 1 I started using 123-reg.co.uk for web hosting in February 2006 and found it easy to register my domain and set up the hosting. Step 2 I increased my Web hosting space from 250Mb to 500Mb. The money was taken but my space wasn't increased. Emailed Customer Service - no response. Contacted...

I have used 123 reg for a number of years and have 6 websites domain names purchased from them. They offer web hosting as well as domain name purchase, the entire package that anybody would need, from single user to large business packages - the prices are often updated, but to buy a .co.uk web...

I have been with 123 reg for about 4 years and have recently decided to build and host my website with another company. I was slightly alarmed after reading reviews that the process of transferring my domain away would be really difficult and complicated. However i was pleasantly suprised. The support number is fairly expensive and I had to make a couple of calls to get the problems resolved, but I was never on hold for more than five minutes and staff were polite and helpful. The only negative thing i would say is that the instructions on the help pages could do with updating as they are difficult to navigate and have some mis information.

I paid extra for their pro site, but Ignore the gloss as the product is rubbish - the site only fills half the page and had banner ads which I had not expected . Worst of all their support never answers questions - even if you get a response a week later it's still of no actual help, I've been trying for over a month to get some sense - you might do better phoning the help line but that costs 50p/minute.. and they made me hang on for 40 minutes - no kidding!!!! The promised free PPC Google adwords etc have never been made available - support won't say why. Really, really disappointed. Don't touch this horrible company with a bargepole.

poor support, rude and no help whatsoever

What an experience I had with 123-reg. I wanted to market my music online, but using FTP was impossible. The simple site builder was not good enough for me. I tried to upload my site until I was blue in the face. I eventually gave up sent an email to their support system. A response ticket...

“InstantSite 123-reg.co.uk”

published 26/04/2007

simple to use

very limited and very poor service

If I had known the problems I would experience with 123-reg InstantSite, I would not have purchased their services. First up - the templates are pretty badly designed and there's not as much choice as I had been lead to believe. Secondly, once I had finished writing my website, I went to publish...
