Deb, I have purchased 2 domain names from 1&1 Hosting with no problems:

http://order.1and1.co.uk/xml/order/Hosting;jsessionid=E2B35E220B8D521DFC83622E88DD0D3 C.TC30b?ac=OM.UK.UK529K03386T2650a&PID=2987125&gclid=CN_txYql0pgCFQyjQwodhSiWzw

They seem quite reasonable and offer various hosting packages for home or business use with planty of email accounts.

I find pacwebhosting brilliant. I pay 2.58 a month for everything you could want on a website. I did have a parenting one with hundreds of pages, fantastico, website design programme, forums, blogs, chat, galleries etc but recently deleted that one, too much for one person to run lol.

I'm starting a photography one now with the same webhost. I've not even begun to get through everything it offers. Highly recommended.

I've got mine with 123-reg (http://www.123-reg.co.uk) and have never had any problems with them.

Deb, I use http://www.streamline.net/
You get a domain name free.

The onyl thing with them is you have to watch because, even if you don't renew the domain name and/or hosting services they will still try and charge you. I fell into that trap a couple of years ago with them - got an email asking me to contact them if I wanted to renew - I didn't so didn't contact them, then almost 2 years later I get a huge invoice from out of nowhere. Finally got it sorted but still had to pay some kind of admin cancellation charge :sad2:

I also use 1and1 and if you have multiple domain names the instructions for uploading to each are not crystal clear. I ended up finding the lengthy search help process more helpful than speaking to one of their non english speaking help desk 0870 number. I agree also that you have to actively cancel extras or anything else with them but they have provided a good service for years

I use one.com (http://www.one.com/en_GB/;jsessionid=D930C062F23124418997E25EF32718A7) never had any problems with them.

They are doing a deal at the moment, a year free. Although you may have to pay some sort of charge. Just noticed the freebie when I went on the site to post the link.
