    Horrible, horrible host. I could not leave them soon enough. Tech support is abysmal and when I was with them they didn`t keep automatic backups of your website (maybe they do now). Leaving them was the best decision that I`ve ever made. Remember, when it comes to your online data, if you choose cheap over quality, you definitely get cheap.

    The technical support team at 1&1 hosting has been the best ever! They are very prompt in solving any issues that may arise. They did a very good job especially on Tuesday in restoring the systems after a DDos attack on the company’s DNS network. Our websites were up and running in a little over 10 hours after the malicious attack. Keep up the great job!

    Have been using them for about a year and am very disappointed. When I was building the website, the page load times seemed to be far too big. Then after a few months, they suddenly went to 10-20s, if the page loaded at all. I tried to contact support via phone and email, I couldn`t get through for days via phone and emails went unanswered.

    I racked up a huge phone bill (international calls), finally on day 3 I got through. I was told there was a server issue, I got an apology and a promise it would be fixed. Nothing changed. Some days later I got an apology via email saying they had a lot of work on, had tested the page load time and thought 6s was fine. During this time I transfered the domain to my name (it had been in a friend`s), I had to clone the database to a new one to fix the problem myself. After this, I got the expected 1-4s load time. When support did answer, they usually tried to blame my connection, even though I tested via several ISPs in multiple countries with the same result. And they had told me via the phone they had a server issue.

    After I fixed the issue myself, I started noticing outages at least once a week, usually lasting 5-10min, but anything up to 30min. I get either a database error or the page refuses to load at all. Support`s reply is that nothing can be done about these glitches, they are to be lived with. As I run web shops, this is especially unacceptable. I`m looking for a reliable hosting company to take my sites to now, I`ve had enough stress and downtime. I cannot understand how they have this 99%+ uptime and reputation for reliability.

    In one word: AVOID

    Having an e commerce website myself, I am well aware of the fact that for running an e-commerce website you need an extremely reliable web host. Also SSL certificate is an essential feature. You need completely redundant data centers for successful hosting. These features are available with 1 and 1.com at very affordable prices. I have been with them for almost five years now and I have never been troubled. in fact I am happy with their services. The one feature that has really impressed me is that they let you use two separate servers to store your data. So no chance of your data getting compromised. This is a very good host by all means.

    1&1.co.uk will pay you the worth of your money. When I first avail their plan at an affordable prices, I thought that how could such reasonable price website offer great and satisfactory support, but I was wrong. I used their hosting services and I found everything right. On the very first day of my sign-up, one of their rep drop one mail regarding the appointment of one person particularly for me who will go to support me to set up my website and for operating the same. They offer their control panel containing relevant features and the logistics which allows me to move my website independently. They offer great uptime also and simultaneously no issue with their speed also. The company offers everything in a very simple manner.Mostly, I do not face any issues related to support but if something arises then all get resolved in a very less time and on just one call. The company also offers great, satisfactory and high quality hosting services, so if you are a beginner or you are a professional web designer and you are looking for good services at reasonable price, then try for this provider.

    In my opinion, web hosting services are not suitable to host the web sites of large scale, despite of this they are appropriate to host small size website. If we discuss about their servers, then their working is just OK type, as they do not work in a fast manner for the still websites. Simultaneously, they offer average level of the customer support. However, their FTP is also fine. If you upload large no. of files then there are chances that they might loose the connection. So, it’s better if we avoid this situation

Recommended Complaint for 1and1

Click here to file a complaint
Complaint  ::  Support is unresponsive or refuses to help with anything. In the 8 years I`ve had to deal with them, support has never once reached a satisfactory conclusion for me. Most of the time, the response I get from support is not even remotely related to the inquiry I had submitted. They have 3 or 4 scripts to choose from and if your question doesn`t fit one of them, they`ll just pick something randomly. It would be humorous if we weren`t losing real money dealing with this shady business. There appears to be no way to contact anybody at 1&1 who even pretends to care. They have frequent outages which they keep secret, hoping their customers won`t notice so they can continue advertising 99.99% up time (it`s more like 75%). By far, 1&1 is the worst company I`ve ever had to deal with. Shady, shifty, dishonest, infuriating, worthless. $7 hosting? I`m afraid that even with prices like that, you won`t even get what you pay for. There is a hidden cost - thousands of dollars in lost revenue because your website is being managed by a group of people who just don`t care, and never will.--James
Complaint  ::  Support can take days to reply. When they do, they haven`t read the original mail properly and send some template about clearing browser cache and cookies and try to blame my connection, even when I give clear evidence pointing to a problem with their servers. And even after they admit a problem with their servers. Massive reliability and performance issues, which support tells me to expect and tell me there`s nothing they can do.--OM
