Avoid names.co.uk
This company does not respond to emails ever. Their sitebuilder is horrible to use and displays no consideration to the end user. They were quite cheap but provide nothing for that money as far as I can tell. 2 and a half years in I'm still trying to leave them, yet they are still grasping my domain name and not publishing my website.

Names.co.uk arrogant and unhelpful
do not use them - they don't use email at all -
when you call to cancel or discuss your account they don't want to know -
I cancelled my service in early November by both calling their offices and login a service report in this regard - they completely ignored my cancelation and debited my credit card anyway.

Completely underhand practice and do not respond via email only via their support panel -

DO NOT USE THEM OR YOU WILL BE OVERCHARGED AND NOT BE ABLE TO MOVE.

COMPLETELY UNETHICAL !

A dreadful company full of almost hidden and over-priced charges and miserable [...]
Namesco are a bunch of rip-off merchants.I bought a .org domain from them (Iwas new to the game then) which sot me £9 + VAT, so it was already over-priced.

Compare Namesco with a company such as Namecheap and you won't want to deal with Namesco like I did, stupidly, when first starting out. I f I had know then what I know now, I would never have used Namesco.

When I came to renew it, they wanted £29 + VAT!! That's a 300% INCREASE but if I leave them it will cost me another £12 'transfer fee'!

I complained and received a call from some woman who tried to justify their prices and claimed also that she was unaware of the bad press her company are getting. She promised to email me with a solution but has not done so, despite repeated contact from me.

Seriously, don't go near these people and please, warn others to avoid them at any opportunity, They will rob you blind if you let them.

.COM Still in Command as It Reaches Its 30th Anniversary This Week - .COM celebrates its 30th anniversary this week and according to leading domain name registrar, names.co.uk, it continues to hold a strong position in the domain name market with more than one third of customers registering a .COM.
Hailing from the same era as shoulder pads and fishnet stockings, Ninja Turtles and My Little Pony, it has slowly become a firm favourite and much like Madonna, it’s now one of the most recognised names in the world.
Kelly Salter, Domain Product Specialist at names.co.uk said, “.COM is 30 – its very old in terms of Internet age but it’s still playing an integral role in the domain name world today. With such a rich pool of registrants built up over the years, it has helped form the Internet as we know it and will continue to be as popular now as it has always been.”
The first ever .com was claimed on the 15th March 1985 by computer manufacturer Symbolics. Thirty years later and one is registered nearly every second with more than 100 million ... [search all names.co.uk news]

They are rip off merchants. I signed up to Namesco 2 years. I decided not to use the domain name. 2 years later they take renewal fee out of my account without any authorisiation from me whatsoever. I feel like I've been robbed. Unbelievable CRAP SERVICE. No customer contact or service over 2years and then they take money out of my account without any authorisation from me. They're thieving robbers.

Choose the right account and you get what you pay for. Recommended. as far as I am concerned. Have been with Namesco since they took over my old host Smartchoice back in 1998. Have a Designer Plus account with around twenty Linux hosted domains. As yet, never had a problem that wasn't solved as rapidly as reasonably possible and apart from a spate of recent denial of service attacks have had no unforeseen problems. Haven't bothered comparing prices elsewhere due to the dreaded upheaval of moving but they were good enough to offer me the same annual hosting discount as they were offering to new clients last year, can't complain.

Used to be good but lately i´ve had nothing but problems with them and my clients are getting angry which makes me look bad.

If you need to get in touch with sopport, prepare yourself to get very angry and spend a lot of time and money just to speak to someone, who will usually try his hardest to throw blame on someone else and want to get rid of you.

I´ve had accounts deleted for no reason and has taken days to put back amongst numerous other problems. Also, the hosting plans are not great as not all hosting accounts have SQL so if you are in the wrong bracket you will pay dearly for it.

You´ve been warned.

I was previously a satisfied XSession customer but since this shower have taken over things have gone downhill.

It is now Monday evening and I unable to ftp to my site. When reporting the problem they said the problem is due to a Denial of Service attack on Sunday. The email said that will be all they can tell me about it, as if to say "don't bother us again just go away and put up with it".
