    Sorry for OT but there a huge amount of chaff on the domin reg ng's...
    A friend (not me 'onest) has been paying £40 pa for his domain reg - a .co.uk
    name. He just had a letter saying they have been undercharging him and it should
    be £90 p.a. Is this a reasonable figure? (And are they allowed to backdate this
    undercharge like this)?
    Many thanks.

  2. Hell no, it's a total rip-off. I would expect to pay no more than £7pa for a
    co.uk. Are you sure you don't mean hosting?

    Thanks folks. No I didn't mean hosting - I was amazed too. They do offer a
    hosting option but he hasn't taken that up. In fact the name just points at an
    "under contruction" page somewhere. He tells me the domain was registered with
    with an "agent" several years ago and was sort of was forgotten about (!). Which
    means I (and he) doesn't know who really own's the name. I'll see what whois
    says. I guess if they have the cheek to rip-off someone like this and then ask
    for more they are going to make it difficult to get the name off them so he can
    pay a reasonable figure.
    What a excellent group this is. Thanks.
