Massive savings on UK domains
Come January 2020, for the price of a 1 year registration with 123 Reg you can have two years with Freethought, and still have some change left over! 123 Reg will charge £14.39, whereas we'll only charge £11.40, so you get £2.99 change and an extra year of registration for the same money!
It's a no brainer really, transfer your UK domain to Freethought for free and save.
We're just plain nicer
123 Reg value profit above all else - they are owned by GoDaddy after all, a massive public company traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Freethought on the other hand is a small, family run, UK based company with a strong focus on ethical behaviour and environmental responsibility.
In 2015 the wholesale price of UK domains increased by 50%, which 123 Reg more than passed onto their customers with a jaw dropping 186% price hike! In January 2020 the wholesale price increases by 4%, which 123 Reg are passing on to their "valued" customers with another price hike, this time an almost restrained 20%.
To put things in perspective, when the wholesale price increased by 50% in 2015, we likewise increased our prices by 50%. In 2020 the wholesale prices are increasing 4% and our prices for 1 year registrations are actually dropping by 1.3% whilst our multi-year registrations are increasing by just 5.6%. This means for a lot of our customers they're actually going to save money come January 2020! What can we say? We're just nicer.
