Domain name registration- who to use?

  Singerz 12:18 05 Dec 2006

We currently have our company domain name registered with We bought a POP3 email package and use it for email on our PC's at work using outlook express. We also use it for webmail when we work from home.

We have been having problems with customers not being able to email us, their emails get bounced back as spam. I have been in touch with support who say there is nothing we can do about it.

So I have decided to transfer the domain to another registrar and buy some new POP3 boxes.

I have begun transferring to but have been put off by them due to:
1- Owned by pipex and they have been messing me about at home.
2- Tech support phone line rings out and they will not respond to my emails.
3- Their webmail is not good as a/ you can't send attachments and b/ you have to be logged in to the account control panel to access webmail.

Just wondered if someone could recommend a reputable company I can use to transfer the domain name to, as, other than 123-reg, I don't really know of anyone else.

Many thanks.

I use click here - small company providing bespoke services. Cheap for me but my requirements are modest.

I have used click here for a few years now. I know that some people have had problems with them in the past, but personally I haven't, and on the point I would recommend them.

I've used Heart click here for a while now, the support is fantastic - even when I emailed them at 10am Sunday morning, the reply came 10 minutes later.

I did use 123-reg, but I found support at times non-existent and I also encountered problems with my domains emails bouncing or non-delivery.

If you really take your emails seriously, I would invest some money in a decent email service. I'm with Fastmail, and all my domain's emails are routed through this service and the web services stay with the orginal company I bought the domain from.
