IP forwarding sub domain capability

steer clear of the centralnic nominet names

Freeparking is one of those online companies which does not incur VAT, so for the consumer are 17.5% cheaper. They have two sites, freeparking.co.uk which has pricing in GBP and domain-parking.net which has pricing in USD...take your pick! Both sites are the same apart from the pricing, infact...

Cheap and Efficient way of getting your own domain

Nowt

This lot provide an absolutely excellent domain name registration service, not only that their after sales service is excellent, and not only that the site and control panel, once you’ve registered is a doddle to use as well. There are a couple of other in depth opinions that detail the...

“An excellent service”

published 06/03/2001

A fast, efficient, professional service

None

While not offering web hosting as such, www.freeparking.co.uk offers one of the best domain registration services I have come across. The prices are reasonably standard, starting from £9.99 for a .co.uk domain name for two years, up to around £29.99 for a .com for two years. Many different TLDs...

Cheap

Everything else

It's cheap and easy and quick to register a domain with freeparking but that's where the story ends. Raise a support request and the answer that comes back has nothing to do with your problem and it seems that they are being obtuse with you on purpose. I have asked direct and specific questions...

Web forwarding, ease of registration, cheap

Automated support response, poor email forwarding ...

The freeparking.co.uk site is great for registering cheap domain names easily. It is not so good at email forwarding (emails often bounce back) and when you put in a support request you get an automated response from various FAQ-bots (you'll get to know them by name!) which is irrelevant to the...

Freeparking is a domain name registration service I've used for many years. It offers cheap, automated registration. Freeparking takes Paypal which is quick and convenient. It's easy to use and not expensive so I've never really had cause to look elsewhere to compare its service. As they say - If...

I was with Freeparking for over 5 years - it worked ok, never had any major technical issues and when I did they were usually resolved pretty quickly. The website is a bit dated and clunky, and they are clearly not a UK company. This all went fine, until I renewed my main domain name for an...

Very expensive for .co.uk and like another Reviewer here, were completely incompetant when it came to automatically renewing my domain. It says is T&C that domain renewal is done automatically if a CC is left on file - except they THEN tell you they don't do that anymore when you wonder why you've lost your domain name Also, was charged a whopping fee of £13 for renewing domain name THREE HOURS LATE on their system. The fact that - because they are in the US! - the email was received by me at 5:30 in the morning made not a jot of difference to this incompetant, useless, expensive Domain Name Sellers - WARNING TO ALL - DO NOT USE THEM!!!

“Email TOTALLY unreliable.”

Reasonably priced and easy to set up

Impossible to rely on them for e-mail; if you want...

I got a .eu domain from Freeparking and stayed with them for almost two years. Setting up was easy and the price fair, but that is the end of that. From the outset I noticed that e-mails could be delayed (both outgoing and incoming), but I thought that was a glitch. At the time I was using a...

Affordable

No telephone support or any support

I used to find FreeParking an excellent choice for aquiring and maintaining new domains. But I don't now. This seems to have taken on the feel of a bedroom business. I registered a domain in 2007 under my company name and I renewed this year. I have a receipt for the money they took and my...

Had a .co.uk domain with them for just over a year, and the service was ok - emails can go missing due to their over aggressive spam guard - there is however a major rip off with their service. I forgot to renew my domain in time and they instantly disconnected the domain, and threw away all emails. I renewed a couple of weeks after the date (which cost a rip off £30 - but theres no other way to keep your name) and i'm still waiting for them to reconnected it. They don't let you know when your name is up for renewal to scam the most out of you! Will never use again - try someone like namecheap if your looking for a bargain!

not the cheapest, but cheap isn't always good

Unlike the previous 2 or 3 reviews I would highly recommend Freeparking. Unlike many of the hosting and domain name companies out there, Freeparking puts you in control of your domain name. I canchange all apsects of my domain names and on the odd occasion I have needed to move my domains out, it...

Waste of money - You don't get what you pay for!

Does anyone work at Freeparking - It would certainly appear not! Look elsewhere. My experience is not an isolated one judging by comments here. The test of a company is how they react when things go wrong. I had been lulled into a false sense of security having quickly and easily registered my...

“Too unreliable, poor service”

cheap

unreliable, poor service

I have finally transferred all my domains away from freeparking.co.uk, having started with them in the year 2000. I have found I just had the most terrible problems with email forwarding to the point that many of my friends and associates told me that my email was flakey. I found that every few...

High prices, poor service, and don't expect any support if you ever try to move your domain to another registrar.
