i have used 1 and 1 shared hosting plan. it is far better than most of the hosting companies out there. they never had a ddos attack and most of the websites are very fast. they dont have any limitation on how many websites you can add so , add as many as you want but dbfile might be limited to 10 + depends on your price plan. I love their service and will certainly use it in future.
I tried our a side job repair business and went with 1&1 to quickly get my site up and even try to host others on a subdomain. Their chat support helped me through a lot of startup questions and got me on a plan where I needed to be without trying to upsell or pressure. I felt confident going with them, support knew their stuff and I cannot remember any significant downtime. I even set up a SiteUptime on my site and canceled it soon after once I saw so many 100% uptime reports.
1 & 1 has been awesome for me when getting my side business started. The support was phenomenal, very helpful and got me rolling when I had questions. They went over everything, and reassured me everything was setup properly and ready to go. Your money is safe to be invested here, without a doubt.
unlike their shared webhosting, 1and1 email service is very good enough to offer to small clients as email solution. i never had issues with them and i was even managing a small clients email system before i know about emails , thanks to 1and1 email service. Overall it is a good service.
1&1 were my first web host and are still registrar for a number of my domains. they have a good control panel that designed to accommodate beginners. it is was easy to navigate through their features. but the customer service was horrible. Always had problems with them when ever i call as they literally don't know much hosting. so i found better hosting elsewhere but still using it for domains.
I used 1 & 1 when I first started in developing websites. The user interface made life easy in understanding how everything is setup. Support was great to me in going over the system, and how to get everything up and running properly (web hosting, and email). Still use them to this day for one domain, and no complaints.
One of the worst shared service i have ever used. the product itself is not bad but dubious customer service and unhelpful tech support makes it worst. i had to wait more than 30 minuteseach time to reort an issue and the agents were rude and asking call back later, etc.. if your website is needs constant update wthout downtime, try elsewehere
i have tried this before. it is good but not good enough for big companies. maximum size for a mailbox is 2gb and it iwas not good f or us. BUt it certainly good for SMBs who need to manage mails without a sysadmin.
They are getting better every year to be honest. they started of with very slow windows systems and average linux systems but now it is far better than 2 years before.Poor customer support, but in my experience, excellent uptime. Some servers are overloaded but i reccomend to use only linux servers.
I only heard very bad reviews about 1and1 shred hosting but personalty i never had much issues lately, as long as you dont have to contact customer support for anything. They just transfer you through different departments and wont have any real knowledgeable agent to help you. I never had any issues may be that is why i never complaints.
I have used this for y ears and never appropriate this awesome mail solution. !&1 gave it out for free with hosting bundle while others charged hefty price for each mailbox monthly. neverr had a downtime on this really. after using 4 years, i never needed to contact customer support for this. when aloccated 2GB fills, you can export as PST and clear it up. Great solution.
i have set this up for few clients and they loved it. 2gB inboxes for all staff for as low as $100 per year, awesome. To be honest, i really cant find any drawbacks as it never stopeed working, never needed to call customer service, so and so. all in all, Great service.
I like 1&1 shared hosting and email applications but there VPS are not the the same. i had very bad experience with customer service guys who knows nothing about what they are supposed to do. VPS interface is bit old model and hard to gain control over it. i had tried to install cpanel and it was not an easy task. i would never go back to them until customer service are better.
they dont use typical cpanel for navigation and uses their own customer dashboard which is not bad after all. recently they changed the whole interface and became more simple but it is a bit slow open dashboard. connecting websites are very simple as connecting a folder from hosting but adding A, cname records are a pain. normally they have to be done by cutomer service and it is hard to get access to them
one thing i can give 5 star to 1and1 is their free email service. you get up to 3000 free emails accounts of 2gb for every hosting account for last 6 years. i have configured this for many charity organisations and it never gave me problems so one of the best cheap email applications i have ever seen.
Unlimited free emails with their basic hosting plan?! SUCH a good deal. Usually they offer a promotional rate for their basic plan as well. You really can't beat their offer! I've never had an issue with any of my email accounts. #spiceworks
I have used 1&1's web hosting for a couple of my clients. The main pro to their services is the price and the unlimited email accounts. Their customer service isn't the best, but all in all it's the best "bang for your buck" style of webhosting for small mom and pop shops. #spiceworks
I am using 1&1 for years. They got better in their customer support in recent years. so i canse they are not horrible as they used to be. but i never had any downtime with them for last 3 -4 years. mailboxes are free which is a plus. all in all, i still like their service.
i have used 1and1 email for small companies of 3-5 users to give them free emails with their websites. it is really good for that. unlimited free mailboxes as long as you have hosting with them. i still use couple of mailboxes with them.
I have used 1 and 1 shared hosting before. it is entirely different dashboard than cpanel or anything i know. But it is pretty much simple , even a non tech can understand how to do stuff. but their customer support is so terrible that you dont even want to talk to them. there is no way you get anything out of it especialy when you need to cancel your account.
i am using their shared hosting for more than 5 years. main reason i used to stay with them was to utilise their free mailbox option. But their customer support is the worst i ever used. they never contact you back. if you need to trasnfer a domain , they will make you bleed. This doesnt come with any cpanel but their own setups. you cant add any a record or cnames directly as you have to contact them. bit of a pain but not much down time.
I love free 1&1 Email service with sahred hosting plan. If you have an anual subscription of shared hosting, you get to create 3000 mailboxes of 2 GB for free. iwas awesome 5 years back when happens. Hosting wasn't that great but mailboxex kept me service with them. i never had issues with mailboxes from 1and1.
