Guess who's hiking their prices again? Come on, it's as easy as 123 Reg


You know 123-reg do more than just domains, for most hosting companies domains are a loss leader, not just in the registrations costs but the support costs for them. 123-reg is not only a domain registrar, but a hosting company (well part of one) in it's own right so their profit is not just from domain sales.

123-reg are not the first and not the last to have this issue!

They are not the first and they will not be the last to have something like this happen. Any one who has a business or mission critical services should have either a backup or pay for backup services. It's not rocket science you make sure that really valuable stuff is protected!
