UK Registrar with good Email Forwarding?


[link to this post]
 
(Back here after a billion years, hi guys).

I've had a couple of domains registered with DomainMonster, but they've recently gone to pot!

I only really use their email forwarding which hasn't suffered as badly as their hosted email. However it went down for the second time in a fortnight and their customers have identified that 2 of 3 nameservers are down and all live behind the same router! So clearly multiple levels of "economy"....

I'd like a new registrar that supports fairly diverse forwarding. We've about 20 aliases that route to 4 or 5 mailboxes held elsewhere. I've noticed a fair few that support hardly any forwarding in the hope of up-selling a mailbox or hosting package (often overpriced).

+ I like the domains being independent of my ISP (xilo) & bundled hosting/mailboxes.
+ Basic hosting is an unnecessary expense for my needs or I'd look at xilo, nethosted and equivalents.

So these days: Who's good? Who's bad?

Thanks

Kevin

I've used them for about 20 years - all OK.

Isle of Man based rather than UK but used their services for a while, company is called Netcetera, support is excellent.

Have my domain(s) hosted with them (you can actually get free domain hosting if you buy at least one domain)

Virgin (ADSL) => Namesco => Newnet => O2 => Plusnet => Zen => Newnet => Zen => Freeola => Vivaciti (using O2 Wholesale DSL) => Xilo (C&W Wholesale) => Xilo (O2 Wholesale) => Xilo (TT Wholesale due to O2 Wholesale closure) => Zen LLU => Awaiting Zen FTTP
Router: Netgear D6400
