My experience with 123-reg.co.uk has been over many years as a domain name host, more recently I have also used a web hosting (shared Linux) package.
The domain name hosting services are 100% fine, and easy to set up and administer.
Although very easy to set up and administer, the performance of the hosting package was sometimes rather poor, depending most probably on the overall load on the shared server. This was especially the case when using a Joomla CMS which makes heavy demands on SQL, PERL etc.
For a basic web site, the performance was however more than adequate, and pretty good value in my opinion.
Over the years customer support has been much improved, and more recently it is excellent with very fast turn around, with informative and helpful replies, using the on-line support ticket system. This is substantially better than support services I am experiencing with other providers.
The main web site is rather overly flashy in my view, not especially intuitive, and can be slow to use, but works OK once you find you way around.
