... and my niggly with them is the invoicing ... if you host
a number of clients, their automatic invoice just says
"you've been billed", but it doesn't say for which domain
(I do have a tickler system in my accounting program,
but it would be nice to print out DH's invoice as well).

Something I just found out recently is that they pro-rate
from the beginning of the month, eg: I signed up a
customer June 23rd and pro-rated it to July 1st (making
July their actual first billing month), but DH invoiced
from June 1st (it knocked my accounting off by a month).

Otherwise, I can't really complain :)
