Very nice and efficient company,

I use them all the time to register .co.uk domains for clients, at £6.09 you can't complain, just get some hosting and point the domain there and your set.

I've used them and then had some surprise amount jump onto my bank statement, so i rang them up and gave them a piece of my mind and they speeled on about something i asked for, which i never did, as i checked my signup contract i printed out after the order.

Anyway, think Postill has a good experience with 1&1.

I personally prefer 123-Reg

Cheers chris, take it they are ok to get hosting from aswell? Might as well kill 2 birds with one stone and all that. They seem pretty reasonable.

Will i get some FTP program from them aswell?

always 123reg, they are cheap and it's easy to move domains in and out (not that you'd likely need or want to move it away from them!) :)

friends also like godaddy,. it's cheaper still..

WSFTP and Smart FTP are both free and useful.

I'd go for Smart FTP personally - www.smartftp.com

1&1 hosting packages look pretty good - they give you £400 worth of software free when you sign up so i guess that includes everything you need....

What software did you get then?

I ask, as those DVD's you get free with magazines often claim to have hundreds of pounds worth of software on them.

I've often wondered how they do that for five or six quid - and you get a magazine as well... ;)

i don't know - I don't have a hosting package with them... only a domain and email package.

And magazines make all their money through advertising, not sales :)

I know :rolleyes: My comment was intended to be somewhat sarcastic and tongue in cheek ;)

As for that software, as I suspected, the greater majority, if not all, is available free anyway.

I don't know how they have the cheek to call it four hundred quid's worth.

Still, as they say, there's one born every minute...

Yes, the majority of the software is free - type the program names into google, and find thier site, and you should be able to download most of them FREE-OF-CHARGE, although some may be shareware (which may require a reg fee after a trial period, this is only a few though from what i recall). So, just download them all and find hosting with any respectable company you like the look of.
Incedentally I have been looking at 1&1 for domains mainly, but their full hosting and domain packages look very inviting and quite reasonably priced :)
