123-Reg for my host domain


New Member
Hi All,

Just got my VPS with KH and so far service has been great and the forum very helpful which is very welcoming.

I am kind of new to this server stuff and my knowledge is very patchy especially the DNS stuff.

My .co.uk domains are currently held at 123-reg.co.uk

my host runs off one of these domains.

ns1.mydomain.co.uk links to myprimaryip
ns2.mydomain.co.uk links to mysecondaryip

Does this mean that if 123-reg goes down, none of my domains will work, or is it the case that once the domains/nameservers have propagated are they independent of 123-reg.

It's just I have heard a few bad reports about 123-reg and I would rather move my host domain to Namecheap and pay the extra if it will make it more stable.

I hope this makes sense!
Morning bozboz,

I can't say that I have personally seen a registrar go down but if they did my guess is that your domain would become unreachable and this would not matter if you had custom nameservers or not.
