    When you are a hosting giant like 1&1, some people are bound to have a bad experience. But my own experience has been super! Not only did I get way more domains, space, bandwidth, but I have room to grow, and a company I know is not going to disappear or get bought out by some other company. No company is right for everyone, but try 1&1 for yourself. Their 90 day hosting guarantee should give you enough time to decide.

    I took a chance on 1&1 only because of their convincing advertising. How I was fooled. Not only did it take numerous attempts to get their attention, but even after stopping the free stuff long before ever getting billed, they billed me anyways. They then continued to envoke the agreement telling me to cancel the service again, then they will stop billing me. But, keep in mind at no time were they willing to give back the funds they stole – my choice of words for people who do such – due to the fact I was informed the cancelation would only take effect from then on. Furthermore, repeated attempts had to be made to get any responses from the techs. How this is all finally coming out, is they cancelled me saying I wanted them to. HOW wrong can this hosting company be before someone sues them for real. I am forming letters to all other review boards, teh Att.

    I have worked on many web hosting servers: bluehost, godaddy, doteasy, etc. Nothing compares 1&1 to any of these companies, especially for designing/developing websites; 1&1 clearly surpasses the others in storage, bandwidth, uptime, mysql privilege’s/php memory, and most importantly support. You can actually phone 1&1 and speak to another human (and they know what they are talking about!!) 1&1 is fast and reliable, hands down.

    Great prices. Lousy support. Their uptime is not bad, but not 99.99% as advertised. When I complain about downtime, I have never even gotten a response. The database response time is terrible… it sometimes takes up to 20 seconds for a small page to load because of VERY slow database response. Standard HTML pages load quick. PHP pages are slower. PHP + MySQL sites are very, very slow. I am staying with them for now, because I can’t seem to find a better host for the money. Actually, I have never found a host that I have been completely happy with. I’m staying with the devil I know, which is better than the devil that I don’t know.

    An existing client of mine was using 1and1 on suggestion of a freind. I heard bad things about them in the past and wanted to move them to another host that I was more experienced with but they wouldn’t budge.
    1and1 probably has the most comprehensive control panel I have ever seen. It’s so big that it can actually take a while to find what you’re looking for though.

    Support takes a while via email, up to 48 hours. Not too surprising for a company this big.

    I first signed on with 1and1 when they were doing their free promotional offer for 5 years of free hosting on their cheapest package (5gigs transfer, 500 megs space, and all the benefits). They were offering it because they had just gone international – being just a UK company before. I was so amazed at their support offered for the free service and the duration of it. Unfortunately the promotion is over now but I continue to host most of my sites with them due to their prompt service and excellent uptime. Another thing I have noticed is the price of their domains – If you purchase through them (no need to host through them as well) it’s only $5.99 for a top-level domain – which is easily one of the best prices I’ve ever seen. So all in all – 1and1 = 10. (in binary)

    We have been using it for 3 years and one day our site is not accessible. We call support then they said server is down. OK it can be happen. How long of down time can you accept?
    Maybe an hour? It happened a 36 hours ago and it is still down. I called number of times. The only I heard is “Sorry we are working on it” which is a script to be told to say. what kind of problem can let them abandon client’s the most interests? Beware of their horriable support and if you need reliable service. Avoid 1 and 1.

    Our company using VPS package from 1and1. My server has been down for 30 hours already. I spend on the phone over 4hrs in total with Customer Service. They are absolutely useless. If there is a problem with a server, they cannot do anything. Customer Service is located in Philippines and they can contact Server Administrators via email only and I guess Server Admins are ignoring them. So it has been over 30 hours since my server hanged up and there is nothing 1and1 customer service can do. DO NOT GET THEIR SERVICE. GOD FORBIT IF YOUR SERVER GOES DOWN, IT WILL TAKE THEM FOREVER TO GET UP RUNNING AGAIN. I am still waiting..

    I’ve had a web hosting plan with 1 and 1 for about two years now, and I knew two friends who had 1 and 1 plans too. They look good pricewise, and the uptime was good. But 1 and 1’s tech support is horrible. One of my friends got kicked off for unknown reasons – we ran a tech blog almost no one read, and they wouldn’t say what part of the TOS were violated, they just canned our hosting. Very recently, I was cleaning my inbox and got a “notice #43434333″ thingy from 1 and 1, and I figured it was a response for payment recieved for a domain. Well, due to a recent credit card change, it was a supposed “Second notice” on lack of payment for a domain. Now its gone to collection, and has taken at least 2 hrs to clear up, and its not done yet. Bottom Line : 1 and 1 is cheap, and that’s just about it. I would not recomend their hosting services to anyone, even for the most basic of pages.

    Early 2005, I took their free 1 year business hosting to play with. I cancelled it in July 2005. Few weeks ago (07/2007) looking at my credit report I noticed a collection report for $30 from 1and1… The $30 is the famous 1 year free business hosting I supposedly never cancelled. I complained about the situation and told them that I would pay but I needed the crap removed from my credit report, they can’t do it! It depends on the collection agency for which they don’t have a name nor a phone number.

    I have a couple of accounts at 1and1. Call it HAD a couple of accounts. Their spam filter filters email from their own domain. So one account had the first account’s email as it’s contact. When my CC expired and I forgot to update it on the second account, invoices and notices went to first account BUT GOT FILTERED BY THE SPAM FILTER so I never saw them. Of course the account went to collection and 1and1 claimed there’s nothing they can do. I updated my CC info but they said they can’t charge the outstanding amount just future billings. HAHA. Nope, there will be no future billings. Billing guy Rob was rude when I explained the situation…said I must have blocked one and one emails in the filter. Nope, Default settings all the way. How stupid is that? After years of being a satisfied customer, they bit my behind. They care more about their contract with their collection agency than they do about loyal customers. Thanks anyway 1and1. Accounts closed.

    I have 17 domains registered at 1and1.com which hosts my web sites as well. There technical support is not responsive and has left me in a lurch more than several times. My sites have been down for about a week, and I have diligently inquired to please give me some idea, an estimate, when I could expect to be back up, so that I can tell my customers when they can get back on my sites. But I have as of yet not received any answers to my question, but instead, I have been simply told it will be up as soon as possible. Besides damaging my reputation and hurting my business, I find their response totally irresponsible. And after all, the bottom line in a service oriented business is the customer. Unfortunately 1and1.com has not demonstrated that to me, but has been unhelpful through this whole situation. Their customer support is terrible, and are not reliable. Don’t make the mistake I did in choosing 1and1.com. #1 in bad customer and technical support.

    Cheap, and okay if you don’t think you will ever need any support (and to be fair their web control panel is quite good). However, having just had several phone calls to them, their customer/technical support is a nightmare. If the person on the end of the phone can’t type your question into a computer and get an answer, then you’re out of luck. I tried both the sales line and the support line to try and get an answer to my slightly unusual query, and the best they could do was suggest I emailed them after 20 minutes of phone calls.

    This company sucks. The business practices are so corrupt. They automatically renew your domain without your permission (claiming they can do this because of the small print in the terms and conditions). Then when you do try to cancel they make you fill out five email steps before they will cancel you. However, if you cancel after they automatically renew you they will not reverse this. They even go as far as being complete assholes on the phone. They clearly do not want your business the ethical way. They are thieves and if anyone wishes to make a case against them please report them to the better business bureau. I did. If they get enough people reporting them maybe their legality won’t be enough for them to hide behind.

    1and1 is not worth using, even for the low prices.
    We’ve used many other hosting services over the years, and 1and1 is one of the worst.

    They spend a lot of money on advertising and sales, but don’t know how to provide a quality service to customers.

    I think their investors, who are spending millions, must be getting very worried at this point. They will either go bust, or change their name soon

    My blame goes directly to the executives who took this decision many years ago to send outsourced in Asia this so important function – technical support. Servers are located in the US! And their admins simply don’t take calls, they don’t want to be bothered by customers like us seeking for real answers!

    Over the past 4 years, we had problems here and there and our main source of unsatisfactory comes from their poor, incompetent technical support.

    Also, we’ve learned on our own this week that they don’t have any redundancy or fail over solution in place. They lost everything on our webshell.

    1and1 is really a good hosting provider if you only read each terms and conditions before ordering something. Stupid customers just do not read instructions well and their ignorance will cause their own disappointments….

    I would have to say that I was overjoyed when I found a web host that would provide domains for such a great price…… I found out why, and it was a rude awakening: Oh my goodness……Nightmare! It is as if you are on a boat that is sinking… you plug every hole you can see… and you are still sinking even faster… because there was another few holes under your butt that you couldn’t see…. 2.When you add a Web Builder or Creator… you are doomed to pay for it until you die. 3.Cancelling …. Oh my goodness… -I cancelled … I was sent an email… that I was charge for the next three months… And I cancelled again… and I was sent an email that I would be charged for the Web Wizard…and have a late charge. -I talked to them and I cancelled again… and I was told that I would be sent to collections by the 11th….. because I didn’t cancel the Wizard when I canceled the domains. SO I CANCELLED AGAIN…. And found that I owed 18 extra dollars more…I PAYED and they couldnt give me a confirm #.

    This is a warning to anyone considering using 1and1 for dedicated server hosting. We signed up for two servers with 1and1 , and we were working on the assumption that 1and1 support is almost non existant (Which is very true). We are Microsoft Gold Partners , and have extensive OS and hardware experience. I signed up on the basis we would not need 1and1 support for anything other than a physical hardware fault. When we had a physical hardware fault it took 1and1 3 days ! to replace a stick of memory. When the server came back the OS had somehow been corrupted. The 1and1 windows recovery system didnt work . The Serial console access , also didn’t allow us to press f8 for DS restore mode or safe mode (from which we could have recovered the OS). (essentially rendering the serial console access useless). AVOID AT ALL COSTS UNLESS YOU ARE HAPPY WITH LONG PERIODS OF DOWNTIME in the event of any OS issue where hands on access is required. You have been warned.

    These guys have locked my server with no warning! Many calls and about 35 hours later I still haven’t had a response from any of my emails marked as URGENT or any result from multiple phone calls to support. I was even given a FALSE PHONE NUMBER by 1 guy from support, it didn’t connect to anywhere. This place is fine until something goes wrong, then it’s all run, duck for cover and ignore. Don’t believe the 24/7 support either, you can always talk to someone but weather or not they can actually understand you or help is another thing. 24/7 chat line would be more appropriate. My advice to you is this: Pay a bit more and buy a service that actually has a support team that can and is willing help. There is no point in playing with the devil, you will never win. As soon as I can get to my data I’m out. I do feel sorry for those who think they are getting good service at 1and1. Just wait until something goes wrong, the SILENCE IS DEAFENING!

    Our site goes down at least 3 times per day with not explanation why. support@1and1.com does not reply when you email them. They moved us to new equipment on 7/12/07 and the service has been bad ever since. I think they are to big to care about a customer.

    I’ve hosted my 4 web sites with 1and1 for close to 2 years and am thinking of canceling now. Overall, their pricing is the best. However, their technical support is one of the worst. I’ve had a lot of technical problems with them (usually FTP acting up) and if I’m lucky, they fix it on the fly. As of this writing, I cannot upload any files to my site because my FTP session cannot retrieve directory listing once I’m logged on. Their tech support guy told me to contact my ISP instead!!!! (Even though I told him I’m already logged on to their server!). I asked to speak to someone else or his supervisor and he told me I just had to call back. It’s amazing how knowledgeable their tech support is!
