I wish I could give this company a 0 star rating, I am trying to launch an online store and having been pointed in the direction of 123-Reg by some books that I had read I registered my domain name and then paid my money for the hosting package.
I decided to upload a placeholder page 3 weeks ago and it still isnt on the web. Ive emailed them around 10 times and get a standard response each time and the last 3 messages I have sent they havent even been bothered to respond to.
As far as I can… Read Full Review

This is a weird case - but 123-reg GAVE away one of my domains to one of my Customers without checking with me!
Bought www.lb-sch.co.uk in Jan 2009 and even renewed it in Jan 2011 - but had the registration details as my customers name. Despite me owning the domain for over two years, with NO warning, 123-reg simply took the domain off me and gave it to my customer. No refund of domain fees - nothing. So, pay for a domain with 123-reg and, you never know, they can just GIVE it to a non-paying… Read Full Review

Just dreadful - they had over 1 week constant downtime - which knocked the site out of google for weeks on end, but refused to give any service refund.
Then they have an auto-renewal which stores your credit card and just takes money out without any direct affirmation....so my Instant-traffic service was up for renewal, I didn't want to renew, went to the website on the day it expired, to find they had already taken out the money for another year. Well, you would presume any decent… Read Full Review

The company is a joke. I emailed their support to cancel a hosting package (as the price had more than doubled in two years) yet they refused to accept cancellation this way... even the secured log-in section was not good enough to cancel the hosting according to one Farhan (the customer service rep handling my case), I replied by saying I could never get through on the 10p a minute helpline as after 15 minutes of waiting each time I rang no-one answered, and I got sick of listening to the… Read Full ReviewVisit 123-reg.co.uk

I have had four domains registered with this company, which wasn't too bad to start off with. One of the domains, which was on special offer when I first bought it, expired after one year and after not having used it I decided I would not renew it. Then I received a large bill for a renewal - 123-reg had stored my credit card details and automatically renewed the domain "for my convenience" without my authorisation or permission.
Their control panel is difficult to use and difficult to… Read Full Review

The poorest site I have ever done business with. I am sure this was a good idea at its inception BUT its execution leaves a lot to be desired. It is the most frustrating web hoster I have used and you would have to be an IT geek to use its support mechanisms.
When you try to cancel they send you round in circles. It took 30 minutes at my expense to cancel this package.
I think reg-123 need to review its processes… Read Full Review

Unfortunatly People only leave feedback when they are unhappy, and its rare for any industry to see praise.
I have over 20 domains hosted with this company, not once have I had any problems with their portal which is extremely easy to use, I also use them for SSL certificates which are extremely easy to obtain on their site, they are excellent value for money, and anyone on here that says they are not is sadly mistaken and just having a moan.
There are bad storys about every company in the… Read Full Review

I am not surprised that only 10% of reviews are positive. My own experience with this company has been dreadful. Customer liaison, non existant. I would recommend that you stay away from 123-reg. My problem started in about Sept '10, still not resolved in Jan'11, emails consistantly ignored and overcharged for services not provided (fraud?). Shame there is not a zero star rating. My domain has been down for 5 months with no assistance from 123-reg, and, final insult, my domain name is up for… Read Full ReviewVisit 123-reg.co.uk

THEY MADE AN UNAUTHORISED PAYMENT FOR A DOMAIN NAME I WAS DELIBERATELY ALLOWING TO EXPIRE.
THEIR SYSTEM DECIDED THAT IT WOULD AUTOMATICALLY RENEW MY DOMAIN NAME?! AND TAKE THE PAYMENT, WITHOUT ASKING MY PERMISSION I RECIEVE AN INVOICE.

I strongly recommend NOT using 123-Reg. After 12 mths, I still hd no working email I had paid upfront for. They make it very difficult to cancel contracts and cannot be easily contacted. I used them for personal and business purposes. It was only with seriously threatening action that our busiess was reimbursed for nearly a year of unauthorised payments taken… Read Full ReviewVisit 123-reg.co.uk

Like others on this thread I was a Supanames customer who got moved across to 123. Supanames were fantastic - this shower are krap. Support seems to be non-existent. I'm really fuming that I still have almost 2 years left on my package here - and I'm going to have to walk on the balance because I need my site to be reliable. Rubbish - would give 0/5 but it seems the lowest mark is 1… Read Full ReviewVisit 123-reg.co.uk

i was unfortunate enough to get moved over from supanames who were excellent i then compounded my woe by purchasing another hosting pack without realising how bad the customer backup and service was. I have been trying on and off for six months to access my site to update it. Login details seem to have been changed without notification. Not to be reccommended to anybody. Bring back supanames!… Read Full ReviewVisit 123-reg.co.uk

Cheap and far from cheerful. So many problems it's hard to know where to start! Incredibly poor communication - no-one I've reached in their "close-it-quick" support system seems to bother reading what I tell them and no-one online or in the umpteen phone calls I've made has managed to answer any of my (very simple) questions. Their online payment system failed repeatedly, and their support team seemed unable to understand the difference between buying domains and buying hosting. I can't risk… Read Full ReviewVisit 123-reg.co.uk

Anything other than purchasing a simple web domain - DON'T BOTHER!
Incredibly difficult company to deal with especially the support team, a certain member of the team (J) give's different information about the same issue everytime you call up the 10p per minute line, the hold is obviously exaggerated, they never do as they say! put you on hold all the time.
JUST AWFUL!! So so stressful.

One word: Awful.
If you want to do anything more than just buy a domain name. I wouldn't touch 123Reg with a bargepole. Utterly awful pricing. If you want to do anything, you'll find out that it's only available if you spend yet another £4-£10pcm.
The 'control panel' is the most horrid. Navigating around was a chore and with every click was just another 5 adverts on how to spend more money with 123Reg. Most of the time the ads were about how improve your package to cover the… Read Full Review

STAY AWAY FROM 123-REG
What a shower of dunces this lot are.
We have been an affiliate for 8 years and got paid regularly until 2 years ago.
We have registered over 1000 domains with them for our clients over the years which all qualified for affiliate commission. Now they say they will not pay fees due since 2008 nor will they supply full details of all transactions.
Support tickets (lots of them) get canned replies and managers to whom we have spoken to on the telephone NEVER call back… Read Full Review

Changed my login details without telling me in any way. so could not upload files for weeks.
Cancelling hosting is a NIGHTMARE. the process of climbing Everest would be easier.
Even if you move your hosting and they know you no longer have hosting with them THEY STILL CHARGE YOU
DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY...YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED… Read Full Review

123-reg hosting Avoid -- I have made the mistake of transferring my business onto 123 reg. This was due to my private web master moving on to do other things. So what's the difference.. You just can not get to speak to a real person at 123-reg. You have no control over how long your site/emails are going to be down.. Cause you are totally dependant on them to READ your email. They are totally lousy at support the default response always being 'auto response ' some 4 -6 hours after you have… Read Full ReviewVisit 123-reg.co.uk
