We have been fortunate to get some exclusive 123-reg coupons for our readers, enabling you to get up to 15 percent off web hosting. There are a few other coupons related to domains as well, so worth checking all our promo codes below.
123-reg is the UK’s largest domain name provider and is based in Uxbridge in the UK. The company hosts over 1.4 million websites, and belong (with various other brands) to the largest European based web hosting company “Host Europe Group”. We do not have much feedback yet from our readers about 123-Reg, although the feedback we have received has not been overly positive. Furthermore, more recently 123-reg have had issues after accidentally deleting some VPS servers, causing many users to lose their data (no backups, even when it states these are included).

How to Redeem Your 123-reg Coupon
The coupon will need to be applied during the last stage of the checkout process, after which you will clearly be able to see whether any discount has been applied. We have included detailed instructions (with screenshots) below on how to purchase hosting or domains so as to ensure you get the best deal possible.
123-reg Web Hosting Coupon
To take advantage of this deal, you will need to enter the coupon at the end of the checkout process. Follow these instructions to be shown how:
1. Click the 123-reg discount code
The 123-reg promo code above will open up a new browser and take you to their website. The coupon will also be copied to your browser clipboard to make inserting the code easier later on in the process. Their website currently looks like this:
Click on the word “Web Hosting” in the menu bar to be taken to their web hosting landing page.
2. Choose your plan
If you scroll down on the web hosting landing page, you will find a full list of all their web hosting plans. The features on the various plans differ slightly, and therefore you should choose your plan wisely:
Once you have chosen your plan, click the green “buy now” button to proceed further.
3. Choose domain
When you click the “buy now button” in step 2, a pop-up box will appear inviting you to choose your domain or upgrade to business email. Note that any additions are specifically excluded from their money-back guarantee. You may wish to purchase your domain elsewhere (Namecheap is our recommended domain registrar, and is cheaper)
Either choose your domain or click the “I’ll sort my domain out later” link in the bottom right of the pop-up box:
4. Confirm Basket Order + Extras
The next screen shows a summary of your order, and also suggests adding Office 365 Business or Cloud Backup as add-ons. Note that, Office 365 also allows you to backup files \ emails, so you would not need both. If you want professional email, and access to Word \ Excel and all the other office programs then Office 365 Business is a great choice (we use it here at Best Host News).
The stage is to register an account with 123-reg. Their password requirements are fairly tough, requiring at least 12 letters! You also have to insert your full address, and telephone number so make sure you have this on hand.
6. Enter Coupon and Finalize Order
The final step is to check your order is correct, enter your coupon and then add payment details. In the “Order Summary” box on the right-hand side of the page, you will see a link titled “Do you have a voucher code?”. Click this, show the input box. Enter your coupon code, and click “Apply” and the Order Total will update as indicated in the screenshot below:
Payment can be made either by Debit / Credit card or by PayPal. Once paid, you should receive your hosting details within minutes.
123-reg Domain Coupon
To take advantage of this deal, you will need to enter the coupon at the end of the checkout process. The process is identical to that above, except for the addition of a screen confirming the registered address for the domain.
You can see the screenshot of the discount applied below:
As you can see, the 10 percent off domain coupon has been applied.
123-Reg Coupon & Billing FAQs
Can you advise which hosting plan I should choose?
If you wish to know more about 123-Reg shared hosting, we highly recommend you check out our Expert Opinion & User Reviews. Without knowing your exact circumstances, it is very difficult to advise which plan you should choose. The plans have different features, such as the amount of web space and the number of websites you can host. Indeed, if you have a busy or e-commerce based website, we would recommend the Premium plan to get more RAM and greater server performance.
Can I pay monthly?
