Names.co.uk is accessible via email and phone. There is no live chat, but they provide a wide range of articles covering topics related to their services.
At the first glance, there seems to be something rotten in the state of Names.co.uk, since the only positive feedback they received is limited to the one found on TrustPilot. Many sources are full of negative reviews, in which users claim it takes Names.co.uk several days to reply to tickets, domains are held hostages, and pricing is not transparent.
Yet, we are not sure that such feedback is altogether reliable. We have no personal experience with the provider, however, our monitoring data speaks for it.
