Just seen on the PUG forums which I thought might be of interest here:

You might like to consider using Just the name which does .co.uk for £9.99.

Their address is:

Just The Name
c/o Metronet
PO Box 3704
Terry Street
Sheffield
S9 2WL

Now what excuse have Plusnet got for their domain renewal fees?

We always get told that Plusnet are not a domain registration firm when the high fees are questioned. Well now they are - but we haven't seen any benefit. Sad

At the moment port995, Just the name and Pay as you host are all seperate entities. The exist completely independantly of Metronet accounts and most importantly of Workplace our mainly internal system.

Once we have the systems fully integrated then it's likely things will change.

Nah. Dave commented that at some point the companies may all be integrated into Plusnet's systems / Workplace etc...

You said you were looking forward to it. I read this that you were suggesting prices should or would come down when this happened.

My comment took it the other way, suggesting that all that would happen is Plusnet would put Just the Name pricing up to £50.

With me?

Just note that 1&1 servers are based in Germany and Google UK/US doesn't appear to like them very much,.
