I purchased our domain name via 123-Reg and subsequently needed to apply for an SSL certificate. We were only using 123 for the domain name purchase and the SSL certificate purchase - hosting was elsewhere. Everything went smoothly until I realised we didn't have an email box available for the SSL company to confirm our identity. No problem, after a quick correspondence with Alex at 123-Reg we were shown how to set up email forwarding on the domian name (free of charge), the email was reissued, received and confirmed within 5 minutes and the SSL certificate was received 5 minutes after that.
Having set up a SSL certificate some years ago which took weeks (and calls to South Africa, rather randomly!) I was hugely impressed with the speed with which this was completed.
Well done 123!
