Default Buying .co.uk domain names...

Where are the best/cheapest places these days? I've always tended to use UK2. I'm buying a few for a client soon.

Also , are there any who allow you to refer yourself to get a bit of commission back? Only peanuts I know, but it all adds up.

I saw UK2 programme on Affiliate Future don't allow it and consider it as fraud. I would throw up a few banners etc and not just use them to get a referral.

TIA

Cheapest rarely = best, places like UK2, 123-reg, Heart and so on sell .uk domains for less than the cost of registration and the average card processing fee and bung in a load of goodies like email accounts and such like, so something has to give somewhere. If they are paying comission as well it has to make you think doesn't it?

If buying for a client make sure you read all the small print and ensure that your contract with the client includes the restrictions the cheap reseller enforces on you. Also make sure the registrant is your client rather than you.

Ideally if you are buying for a client, then joining Nominet and registering domains under your company TAG looks far better than using a bulk reseller

I use 123-reg myself - normally it's fine, but can be a bit of a handful when managing a lot of domains from the same account.
