I want to register a domain for a new website. I need it to be cheap as it's not really for business, but also I need it to be easy to set up?

I usually buy from the guys that supply my hosting but at 15, it allot more than I want to pay.

Thanks

P.S. It's going to be a .co.uk, if that matters?

I can register .co.uk domains for you for 7.77 + vat per year (9.13) although you do need to purchase a two year registration for all .uk domains, not my rules, nominets... ;)

I can also register .com, net, org, info, etc at the same price...

You will go down as the registrant, beware of companies like Streamline you register themselves, and you will have full control of the domain details and settings.

If you decide at a later stage to transfer away, there is no charge. Plus you get a friendly, happy, although slightly mad, support! :D

The only one I know of that area cheap and reliable, apart from me of course ;), is www.123reg.co.uk

When it comes to .co.uk I am often beaten on price as it actually cost me a fiver to register the domain in the first place. I am more competitive though than most other registrars on the other extensions...

I use UKREG, 6 for two years. Free mail forwarding, control panel gives you access to the DNS settinsg needed to point to your hosting. Very reliable service, they're part of Fasthosts.
