    i have been using 123reg.co.uk for about 8 years - today i went to register a .co.uk and found that payment appears to be done only through paypal...

    i havent a problem paying with paypal - i do have a problem agreeing to 123reg's T&C's quote:

    Yeah i don't think so! Use at your own risk guys!!!

    "future amounts due"

    Keyword - Due. If you owe them nothing then they won't take anything, simple as that.

    if your comfortable with that go for it, i know i wont be using their services again unless they change that...

    i have seen errors happen before and they can happen - my bank did a double withdrawl one time and took an extra $1000 out of my account, and that was simple as that too... but it was a bitch to get it back!

    i just wanted to give you guys a heads up thats all... just looking out for my fellow blackhatters! ;)

    I've heard many negative opinions about 123reg.co.uk but I've never tried them myself...

    That is purely for the 'Auto Renewal'....... If you dont want to auto renew domains, then disable the auto renew for the domains.

    Years ago it was all manual renewal, but people asked for auto renew, now it is pretty much standard across the board with every registrar

    Apart from that being a complete pain in the ass am lazy when it comes to crap like that, the less BS stuff i can do in a day the more time i can spend on making $$$! Besides i always like to stick by my guns and follow my rules...


    RULE #1 - Don't trust anyone with YOUR money!


    Even banks will screw you over given the chance...

    You guys do what you like with your money hahaha it doesn't bother me unless you owe me money!

    - just sayin' ;)
