Which has no transfer charges and good support?

I am Sooo confused? Please help me decide!

Any bad experiences with these guys? Who do you reccommend and why
All their prices are about $9.99 pounds for 2 years.


NOT UK2.net as they get bad reports everywhere!

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

i use ukreg.com for uk names and am generally satisfied, support is very limited by email only and it takes several days to get a reply, but as i've only had one problem that has been ok (it was resolved promptly once they got to it)

on one of the names where i'm just holding the name but using the email addresses there is a sparodic error where mail is duplicated upto 3 times when forwarded to my pop box,

control panel is easy to use, it's straightforward to configure dns records.

i have no experience of any of the others.

i've used ukreg and 123reg but i got so fed up with problems i now have my own nominet tag and my own opensrs account.

typical ukreg problems include failure to set nameservers correctly and failure to register .uk domains. if you get a reply from ukreg support within a week, you can consider yourself very lucky indeed. i've known them to take over a month to reply to support emails. they definitely cost me business due to poor service and poor support.

i've been told easily have good support services, but i've never used them myself so cant say any more on them.

I have used Velnet for 2 years now and with registration at typical prices, you get free web space with generous monthly bandwidth for basic web space and free transfer out when you outgrow it.

The speed is good, there is no cgi or stats but basic logs are available (not referer). When you check it out remember the web space is free when you register at a competitive price.

I use ukreg. User friendly control panel, no transfer fees, cheap, but on the down side they are slooow to respond to questions via email (about 2 days on average).
