About 123 Reg
123 Reg is UK’s largest domain registrar. Though they claim to be the top hosting provider as well, we haven’t found that to be the case. In 2017 GoDaddy acquired the parent group of 123 Reg, HEG (Host Europe Group) for almost $2 billion.
All of 123 Reg’s data centers are located in the UK. That makes it ideal for companies that target an audience in that region since it results in faster speeds and lower latency.
One crucial selling point for their data centers is that they’re eco-friendly. That’s a big deal since data centers consume massive amounts of energy that dissipates as heat. It also has significant environmental implications, and many data centers are converting to green technologies, which saves energy and is also a great marketing tool.
123 Reg’s data centers also make use of the Cisco architecture with the layered approach towards flexibility and provisioning. They feature 10 Gigabit connections. This, combined with their UK centered approach ensures that customers in this geographical area will always have the best hardware at their disposal.
