Cheapest .co.uk provider

Cheapest .co.uk provider

coopercooper Member

I'm looking for a good low cost .co.uk provider.

The best I've found so far with transparent pricing is Internet.bs at £4.99 per year.

123reg are advertising a misleading £0.99 per year but when you add on the whois fee and VAT it costs £7.20 per year. Which is meh and because of their non-transparency makes me inclined to never ever use or recommend them.

I usually use porkbun and namesilo but they don't do .co.uk domain names.

Have I missed anyone?

    @jackhadrill Thanks for that. With the whois privacy fee and VAT they work out the same price as Internet.bs. They have no information that I can see on their site about the renewal fee but I can only imagine it'll be increased significantly from the promotional price.

    Whois privacy for .uk ?

    Either you're a private individual in which case it is automatically not disclosed or you're a business and you're legally required to publish them.

    It seems OVH registration is slightly more expensive but it's renewal fee is the cheapest.

    Have a look at https://tld-list.com/tld/uk

    It is a non-commercial website. So, it would seem both 123reg and Names.co.uk are charging a fee for something that should not be disclosed?

    Do not use names.co.uk unless you want to be charged 3 times the reg cost for renewal and be forced to pay for transferring away (IPS TAG change isn't free).

    Sage advice.

    I however took advantage of the free .co.uk and registered…

    fucknames.co.uk

    I hope they like it.

    Well I received a C&D for defamation from namesco's legal team this morning, justified it seems by my hideous lies remarks to the effect they charge exorbitant renewal and transfer fees that I posted on fucknames.co.uk.

    I'm pretty sure telling the truth isn't defamation (it's not) but being the nice chap I am I swiftly complied with this pack of robbing bastards, removed the site, and changed the nameservers back to namesco… which means they are now hosting this little gem themselves-with advertising!

    Poetic justice at it's best.
