I would just like to make users of Plusnet Business aware that if you register a domain name with them you will be ripped off.
After discovering that our boss had unknowingly renewed our domain name for 2 years at a cost 1000 times greater than the wholesale price. See this link for the invoice: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/856/ripoff.png/ I decided to call them up and have a chat about it.
I put it to them that as a "good, honest" (broadband provider) their customers might also assume that the rest of their business is also good and honest. The guy at the other end of the phone told me I should ask my boss why he renewed if we aren't happy with the price, fair enough I said I will but what about all the other business customers who don't know a thing about domain hosting and are putting their trust in a "good, honest" (broadband) company. He basically said hard cheese, its not our core service, we put the prices out there and its up to the customer, we don't force them, again I said fair enough but that's not very good and honest is it, I didn't get an answer.
Just wanted all you prospective plus net customers to think twice about using them.
