1&1 FREE .co.uk Domain for 1 year

I was looking around for decent prices for domain names and came across this. 1&1 are offering the first year of a .co.uk domain for free then £3.49 per year if you want to continue.

Personally I wouldn't go with any of their hosting cause their own website loads silly slow. Enjoy!

Its free for the first year of a 2 year registration. You will have to pay for the second year. Even if you want to cancle after the first year you will still have to pay for the second year.

Not free then...best move to deal and change title and description

Talktalk are angels compared to these nastys. Just try cancelling with them, its easier to get bloos from a stone.

1 and 1 are excellent until you have a problem or want to cancel... Worst company I have ever dealt with.

If like me you have a few domain and web hosting then every once a year they try to sneak through extra charges not related to my account.

Trying to leave now as I write...

Had no problems with them myself.
I wouldn't hesitate if I needed another domain.

This is how co.uk domains are handled. Nominet only allow you to register a domain with .uk for 2 years at a time. This is not 1and1's doing.

However, the way they're wording it is a bit misleading. Sure if you take the price and pay it money by month you're getting 12months free out of 24months, and 12 months is a year... but it's more like 50% off then 1 year free.
I'm surprised Ofcom or whoever deals with internet advertising, hasn't been able to rip them a new one over it.

Horrible company. Auto renewals hard to turn off and then you get charged even though you disable PayPal payments and then get threatened with a debt-collection (Avarto) service unless you pay the domain for the year you didn't even want it for.

Ditto fro

Ditto from all the negative comments above, they do everything they can to automatically renew without your consent and then send tons of threatening letters for £9.80 not a lot, but it is the principles. Awful company with a massive marketing arm.
