I'm gonna be the one to ask. What company? I'd like to read up on this case.

Re: Regressions

If you think these few bugs are so numerous, you obviously haven't been keeping up to date with the history of Apple's High Sierra update. There are entire forum threads on macrumors.com documenting each one as it appears, one of which I had to personally add, and most of which have gone unfixed. Windows, as of yet, has nothing on Apple's record for bugs, it just gets more flak for the few it does amass because most techies don't like Microsoft.

Congrats from 123-Reg! You can now pay us an extra £6 or £12 a year for basically nothing

As far as I can tell the structure is specifically:

123Reg > Host Europe Group > GoDaddy

Tsohost > Paragon Internet Group > Host Europe Group > GoDaddy

HEG - the parent company behind 123Reg - acquired Paragon - the parent company behind Tsohost - in 2015, and so both were acquired by GoDaddy when GoDaddy acquired HEG in 2016. No other reason for mentioning this other than this it's good for things like this to be more transparent than they are, and also it vaguely interests me. But yes, GoDaddy owns both 123Reg and Tshost (as well as Heart Internet and a few other relatively popular ones), and the only things separating them are 3 and 4 levels of hierarchy, respectively.
