UK2.net have a special offer on domain names. Search for domain names using the search box, then add the .co.uk and .com to your basket, and they will cost you just £10.

This is a saving of 12% off normal prices! The domain names will be renewed at the USUAL rate, however the usual rate is one of the best out there anyway: just £5.99 per year for a .com domain and £2.69 per year for a .co.uk domain.

The T&Cs say that the offer is only valid until June 2009, but it is still working and I've recently used it successfully. ENJOY!

Well, I remember the days when domains were £1.99 per year rather than £2.70 upwards, so it didn't seem like such a good deal at the time. :-D

When I did this offer last week, I didn't post it here. I was in a panic because I'd let my domains lapse elsewhere.

I've not been using them, but they're really important for a project that I keep "meaning to do". :)

lol yeah i have a project like that but was gonna forget about it till i noticed they renewed it in septemer and it cost me £40 i dont know what for though:?

Beware UK2. They make it very hard and expensive if you want to move a domain from them. Any 'features' (normally included from other companies) are always charged. I much prefer 123reg.

Do your contact details get displayed on a whois page somewhere? I saw the Heart people on the other deal charged £4.99 to hide the info. Do these guys do something similar? What are the ramifications of using fake info to prevent the spam?

For .co.uk you can usually hide your details free of charge. For .com you can't. Some companies provide a masking service for free, whilst some charge a fee.

I don't think the ramifications for providing false details are particularly worrying. But if it's being used for business then you should ALWAYS have the full contact details there.

I hosted several sites with UK2 for several years and was very happy with their general service - the control panel was easy to use and everything was pretty simple.

However, when decided to take my hosting/domain names away to another company their service was nothing short of pathetic. I had to raise a support ticket first which never got responded to. In the end I had to call their premium line to cancel - they only have an 0800 number for when you want to sign up - and unlike other companys i've used they wouldnt refund the unused portion of my hosting. And to make matters worse, six months after I had cancelled they tried to charge me for something else.

Long story short, their very good when your subscribed to the service, but if you want to get away they can be very awkward and expensive to say the least.
#12
Used them briefly. Once you have a domain name with them, they over charge you for additional services.

Dont be fooled into grabbing that must have domain name at UK2's bargain price - it will cost you more with them in the long run.

Steer clear.

I have used them for years (since 2000), but only for the first couple of domains I ever had. As the poster above says, it costs a fortune and is a nightmare to transfer out.

They consistently (every single year) charge me twice for the services I have, and I have to contact them and get a refund (I wonder how many people don't notice?). There is always an apologetic "I will let our accounts dept know..." etc. type message, but it happens every year.

They have got better - but that's relative to how bad they were. The control panel is easy to use, but they do tend to charge for every little extra.

With UK2 you get what you pay for.

... it costs a fortune and is a nightmare to transfer out....

From personal experience I have to agree. It is possible to effect a TO without paying the UK2 "admin" fee, but I had to jump through a few hoops to effect transfer of mine without that fee.

As an aside & to address the .com owner privacy issue, DomainaMonster provide zero-cost privacy option for .com registrations. DM 1 year .com reg @ £5.81
Not checked any DM transfer-out costs !
#15
You can actually but a .com domain from Google Labs via Blogger for $10 per year which is roughly what, £6?
#16
I use domainsite.com for .com registration, and 123reg for .co.uk. Domainsite.com charge 50p p/y for a masking service, and both have been fine to deal with.
#17
Heart Internet are only £4.99pa for a .com & £2.79pa for a .co.uk
#18
MOst domain providers are doing deals at this time of the year.
I use [url]www.34sp.com[/url] (Highly Recommended) Plus cheaper than UK2.net.
#19
Do you still have to pay to have the uk2 banners and adverts removed from your domain name,this put me of using them before,worked out more expensive in the long run
#20
good deal hot
#21
Good deal if you're happy to use their services forever and don't mind paying more for extras.
But a. extras mount up and b. moving away from them used to be very difficult.

If there was a good review site of domain name sellers/hosters I'd suggest you look there but the last time I looked I couldn't find a good one...

+1 domainsite.com is the cheapest I found £5.53 per year or £11 for 2 years.
#23
I would advise against UK2, they are very expensive for features others give you for free such as catch all email forwarding and web forwarding.
#24
Great find! perfect timing for my next DIYDating project :)

Those guys are horrific. I had a domain/hosting with them for a year - after the year I stopped utilising and informed them I didn't want to renew. Everything was fine, until July this year (around 2 years AFTER I cancelled) when they attempted to claim a "Renewal Fee" :o. I had to raise a dispute through my credit card company to retrieve that money as they totally fobbed me off and refused to give me my money back.

Also, when I did use the hosting it was very slow and their customer service was terrible. Always took them ages to respond to queries :-/.


From all the comments about UK2 I'm not sure whether to go with them - I'm looking for a .co.uk domain, not really a .com domain. Hmmm...
#26
daily.co.uk: 5.90gbp for 2 years
+ godaddy using US pricing at $7.19/year = 4.48gbp

nothing really "special" about this price. US prices are even lower, coupons for namecheap / netfirms you can get domains for $4.99/$5.99 making it cheaper.
#27
some great info through the comments on here.
I've got a couple of domains on 1and1 .. never again ... might move them to uk2.net.

Cheers guys.
#28
Dreadful service. Search theregister for details of the total failure of the email service - which they did not bother to inform their customers about for ages. Outage took weeks to fix.

Might be a deal but certainly not value for money.

Just for the record, I've never had a problem with UK2.net. Fairly speedy nameserver updates too.


I was with them for years and had nothing but problems. And, like other posters, when I reported the problems I got nowhere, and when I finally decided to move my domains away I got nothing but obfuscation and obstruction. Saving money with UK2net will cost you a fortune in the long run.

Cold as a snowman's knackers.

FWIW I moved my 12 domains across to 123-reg, and they have been a lot more reliable and a lot less grief, so far.

UK2 are fine until something them goes wrong. Unless you ring the premium rate line you are at the mercy of their ticketing system. My recent downtime has brought my operation to the edge of destruction.
#31
Used to really like UK2, and have had my domains with them for about 10 years - but they've got garbage lately. I've had all kinds of problems, domains lapsing without being told (when I was auto-renewal), loads of missed emails (including ones with jobs) they're just not reliable at all.
For example, once, my emails just stopped arriving and the first I knew about it was when I was selling something expensive on ebay, and realised no-one had asked a thing all week. Went onto ebay, and a stack of messages were there - but hadn't come through to me. I reckon that cost me around £100 because the bids were low down to a lack of response, but they said tough, no refunds when I asked for a month rebate.
My wife's email - which she rarely checks - hadn't worked for about 3 months. Again, tough, no rebate.
I'm keen to move away from them and will do so as soon as the contract is up.

Terrible, terrible place if anything goes wrong....they really don't give a toss.
#32
I use Godaddy for my .coms, c£4.30 FREE privacy if u take 5 .coms
Just watch when you renew cos privacy is 5 Pounds per domain OUCH. I cancelled my privacy.
.com renewal was £4.80 pa
#33
After personal experience with UK2, I would not use them again. Much prefer to just store domains with 123-reg and then change nameservers from there to hosting providers... UK2 didn't let me do this without losing email for that domain. Absolutly no reason to that other than force you to park a domain with them.

Customer support was also usless and received conflicted advice from different reps.
#34
Stay away from these jokers.

As mentioned above, the cheap price is a trap, they will try to upsell you, enable automatic re-billing without telling you (until you find out the domain you thought was going to expire just magically renewed itself from your credit card) and make it a pain in the **** to leave.

Like Ryanair for domain names. Not a fan.
#35
I think it should be obvious from these comments that the general opinion from those that have used UK2 is that they are BEST AVOIDED. Stay away from these mugs!
#36
I buy my domains from here I find them cheap as well [url]www.lcn.com[/url]
#37
Better with Daily.co.uk

ok they are £2.95 per year but they give 25% on quidco/topcashback. so £1.50 back. Works out Around £2.20 per year
#38
Anyone recommend someone who'll give POP3 type access cheap? I normally go with 123reg but theirs costs 75p / month and I'm sure it always used to be free. I know it is literally pennies but I'd imagine the cost is per e-mail account so it'd soon add up with half a dozen+ users.
#39
ive been with uk2 since around 98. never had an issue with them apart from the recent mail migration problem. i only use the domain name for email purpose.

for my webhosting i use godaddy. cheap & very reliable. support is an english number, but goes thru to the states, but you only pay english call rate. very helpful.
#40
For the record, I too use Godaddy for my .com's, .net's and .me's, and 123-reg for the .co.uk type stuff. Godaddy have been very reliable, 123-reg no complaints either, although not quite as "glossy".
