“My SSL was never sent & non-existent support.”

Written on: 06/01/2012 by Develio13 (2 reviews written)

123-Reg is by far the worlds worst company, I bought an SSL Certificate with them and after 24 hours I get an e-mail saying they failed to generate my SSL and to send my CSR again. I replied to the e-mail with the CSR again and about 5 - 6 hours later they tell me it's failed and to send as attachment. I copy it into notepad and upload as an attachment, a few hours later I was told it was successful and I'd get an e-mail from GlobalSign within the next 24 hours. So two days later and still… Read Full Review

“Avoid 123-reg ”

Written on: 29/12/2011

I was formerly with Supanmaes, a great company, who were unfortunately bought out by this most horrendous company. I recently upgraded to their unlimited package which is a complete joke. Although it boasts unlimited everything i.e. sites, applications etc. you are actually very limited by the resource they allow you. I run two wordpress sites on this package and most of the time they run at a snails pace. I have had numerous issues and every time I have raised one they have tried to… Read Full Review

“123 Reg just exceeded my expectations by a mile!”

Written on: 22/12/2011

I wanted help in redirecting my emails when I added my domain to wordpress. They were not just helpful with advice, but they made the changes for me and the online chat facility is instant and very user friendly. When I called them I was feeling overwhelmed in a very "techie" process, with little help from worpress, but 123 reg just made the changes for me whilst I waited. Great service and this is not the first time they have helped me!… Read Full Review

“Cannot remove payment details”

Written on: 19/12/2011 by rcusername (8 reviews written)

OK, some may not consider this an issue, but I have just tried to remove my payment details which have been stored without my permission. Usually, I get a reminder and pay using a credit / debit card. I get reminders around 60 days before the domain name expires. Plenty of time, no? Anyway, I've heard of customer's domains being renewed when they do not wish them to be, so I'd rather not let them store my card details. I have also had payment issues with Webfusion (a sister company)… Read Full Review

Rcusername's Response to rcusername's Review

Written on: 19/12/2011

It's not the full review that I wrote review?!

Anyway, continued:

It basically says on their wen site you can remove payment details, but when you call them, they won't do it. It's now part of their terms. Never used to be.

They're my details and I should be able to remove them. I believe they use these tactics to fleece people when they forget to opt out of the renewal process.

I've previously had payment issues with Webfusion, a sister company of 123-reg, so just don't trust them

Don't bother with these guys. Spend your money with a company who cares.

What a joke.

“Really .. quite annoyed to be honest”

Written on: 19/12/2011 by blueplex (1 review written)

Ok in June 2011 I received 3 domains rebilled time and time again by taking money from the card stored and had to request refunds for each invoice. They then claim I have not paid for another domain even though I have an email invoice saying the domain has been paid in full. After threat of talking to my lawyers (yes over £6 thats all) they backed down and said they were removing the invoice from the overdue account as a gesture of goodwill So in summary 123-reg its not a good idea to ask… Read Full Review

“Assistance in domain handing and instant help on line”

Written on: 11/12/2011

Hi, I recently designed a basic web page and needed it to be pointed at by my domain. Consequently the domain I had at the time would not allow access to the domain settings without paying a fee to manage the domain settings. This fee was payable annually at a cost of approximately £20. I was not happy with this so I decided to transfer my domain to 123-reg.co.uk, which provides myriads of web functions. The transfer was completed seamlessly. I then needed to point… Read Full Review

“Good cost, but always issues!”

Written on: 07/12/2011 by Phillshaw (1 review written)

I have gone from ranting about 123 being great to considering leaving them! Overall they're efficient, if, or rather when, there's an issue they're quick to respond but I'd prefer to never talk to a company but for them to just have a product that works. I run a Wordpress blog from 123 and almost every day I run into 500 server errors, these aren't caused by me but from the Server themselves. I have had numerous support cases because I just cannot access my site on a regular basis. The cost… Read Full Review

“Password not protected”

Written on: 07/12/2011 by nainishb (1 review written)

I bought several domains, webhosting package and webmail access from these guys. The process was simple enough and good pricing. The problem has come with the webmail access: - it is a poor interface, especially compared to the free email services have made - our ability to access it over the preceeding month had been poor, it has been unavailable for several days for different users, so we have had to use our non-word emails - I can't access it through Firefox and Opera is not… Read Full Review

“Thanks to 123-Reg”

Written on: 30/11/2011 by jason-d1 (1 review written)

I have used 123 Reg for a number of years. Like all registrars, they have their pros and cons but on the whole their pros far outweigh the cons. One definite, recent 'pro' is that have just helped me out with a very time consuming issue which was effecting our domain names and I am very pleased with the level of support we received. Keep up the good work… Read Full Review

“123-Reg Great help to a small business”

Written on: 29/11/2011 by Niels (1 review written)

I have used 123-reg for more then 10 years both as my domain provider as well as dedicated server provider. For a small business like mine it is important that problem get solved quickly. Now as you all know 123-reg prices are amongst the lowest in the market, but the most surprising thing is that they are able to deliver almost the same value for money as companies charging many times more. And yes of cause I have experienced glitches in the system but a phone call normally solve that… Read Full Review

“Is this the worst hosting company in the world”

Written on: 24/11/2011 by pmal11 (1 review written)

After registering a couple of domains for about 2 years I was contacted post the renewal date with demands. This was unpleasent but I renewed and said never again, as the date approached again this time they made it so hard to move to another company to force me to resign. I let them lapse and resigned again else where, I would rather risk losing the domains than sign with this company. If this was the only hosting company in the UK, I would not use them. If they gave away free domain and… Read Full Review

“Overall service..9.75/10”

Written on: 10/11/2011

I was recommeded 123reg by a friend about 8 years ago and I've had my domains and hosting with them for over 7 years now. In that time I'd say their customer service is excellent and I've only had one minor hitch with them in that time. They offer a variety of packages and the control panel for the domains is simple and straight forward to use...no complaints..:-)… Read Full Review
