domain registration

  whatsupdoc 13:20 14 Feb 2004

ive seen registrion with web and email forwarding for 3.75 per yr.

what are the pitfalls if i want an easier address. ive got 50mb of free space from ntl so all i want is web forwarding. ive looked at sites like 1 and 1 etc they look cheap and i wondered wheres the catch

with some of them - certainly not with OneandOne, with whom I have a business account. They will register domain names quickly and inexpensively, and I can recommend their hosting service.

One of the problems sometimes associated with very cheap domain registrars is that it's extremely difficult to get them to part with the name, should you want to move it to a different name server. They want you to pay for additional services, once they have you safely on board with a parked domain name. Go for a reputable company like Oneandone and you'll noty go far wrong.

I'm very cynical and for someone to tell me its OK is great. my sister is taking a sabbatical and traveling around the world and wants a website for people to see whats shes up to. she will be in permanent contact via laptop and satellite phone but doesn't want to spend hours and fortunes on the phone so Will update every week on what shes up to during the week.

ill go and pay for the domain now before its gone.


I use for domain and email forwarding, £6 for 2 year's... I thought that was ace!

I am very cynical myself, always looking for the catch.

I have been with them for eighteen months now, and still haven't found one.

If all you want is a short name then try They offer click here. This can then be forwarded to your longer name. No email support though.

Just checked the site,its secure,https and padlock. You should have had the security alert warning before moving into secured area. I have an account with 1&1, and I have just registered another domain with no problems.

I'll register the domain with 1 and 1.

the site looks good but mail forwarding will be useful.
thanks for everyones help
