123-Reg

Is anybody else having issues accessing www.123-reg.co.uk
Site access seems slow and intermittent.
Dns resolves the site ok, can ping it, but slow/intermittent/no web pages, anybody else with this issue?

I've got a couple there as well.
Just checked Stock Exchange site and there's no indication of Pipex Comms having sold it, as yet.
They've probably just forgotten to put some money in the meter Grin

Re: 123-Reg

Although i forgot to post ( it's a pete thing) i tried to from PN connection, non PN dialup, work VPN and private VPN and nothing.
not a sausage
I must admit in the past i found them to be ait slow server wise - it's why i took my domain away from them

Re: 123-Reg

worst thing has to be, for some unknown reason, every day at around 2:30-3pm, my dns requests to them fail...
anybody know any cheapish providers, i say cheapish as I have 18 domains, and dont really want an expensive time!

Though I have in the region of 60 domains - all with 123reg.  The site is working fine here at the mo and was alright last night as i registered 4 more domains.
