Heard so many bad stories about them... once you have a domain registered it's difficult to get to leave etc.
I have been with 123-reg.co.uk for about 3 years now and their features are spot on and so is the service so I can't fault em.
Everyone has their own experience tho I expect.
If you want cheaper .com domains try www.godaddy.com
1and1, have caused me much grief in the past. You have to find a very cleverly hidden form off the site, that you then need to sign it, send an email request, reply to the email request auto send, which always comes at a random time. It also appears to be junk, but hidden in the email is the fax number to send the form... the form you can't post!!!
Awful, awful, awful!
123-reg are far better
I personally went with Bannana hosting, advertised on here. They are fantastic.
