avoid this place will be free but will hike on renewal
Loads of domain registrars do this deal, it’s pretty much a way to get more money out of you... extra charges and higher renewal prices. These deals are only good if you want a domain name for a year.
Watch out. I avoid names.co.uk like the plague because they actually charge you to move the domain away from them. "Please carefully read the text on this page, paying attention to the fact that there is a £10 + VAT administration fee. " https://www.names.co.uk/support/1153-transferring_a_domain_name_away_from_namesco.html It will usually work out way more expensive to have a domain with them after the first year, unless you know you actually only want it for 1 year.
This domain registrar or LCN is better, long term?
