omain name

Please can anyone recommend a reliable inexpensive ISP for domain name registrations? I've tried 3 and found all to be very unsatisfactory:
Easyspace - hidden and extra charges, like £25 to transfer out.
Lark Internet / Domainbuster - won't release domain names and made unauthorised credit card charges;
Freeparking / Firbranet - down too often and numerous other problems.
Plusnet aren't an option due to high prices.
Should I avoid resellers anyway?
Thanks for any help.

I use 123reg. (www.123reg.co.uk) I don't know how it compares to the ones you have already tried but I find their prices resonable and the domain name control panel very easy to use.

I also posted a query to their technical support and they replied promptly.

I, too, have used 123reg very satisfactorily.

I have also very easily transferred hosting to Plus.Net at no cost.

Thech support from 123reg has been excellent either by email or phone.

Have a look at firevision as well. With the web based control panel you can transfer out whenever you want, just change nameservers or set up web and mail redirection.

Thanks everyone who's offered suggestions.
123reg and firevision dont seem to be listed as Nominet tag holders - does this matter?

RE: domain name

I bought a co.uk domain for about £11 for 2 years from www.simply.com last year. They include free unlimited email and web forwarding (cloaked and uncloaked) which is very easy to set up and change via their portal.

They seem to have a sale on at the moment too...
