“You can't go wrong with 1&1, they are No.1!”
Reviewed

I designed my own website with the help from 1&1 and their tech support. It's been a great experience overall and it's the cheapest (yet very good and reliable) web host I've ever used. I wouldn't go back to another host, let alone try a new one, it is the perfect one for me at the moment and I'd like Show more

“Simple as fsck.”
Reviewed

Had used 1&1 before for other sites off and on for years (when they had a free 3-year preview many years ago), I had left them and used free, then premium WordPress.com hosting. But my subscription was running out and not satisfied with the limited options with the WordPress.com premium package, the best I could get close to self-hosted WordPress Show more

“Perfect domain + hosting combo”
Reviewed

I've got multiple domains on 1&1, as well as a few wordpress sites. They're cheap, easy to use and maintain - what else would you look for in a host? Support is also quite good when needed, but I haven't had any big problems at all.

“A good host”
Reviewed

I've got a few domains and a shared hosting plan with 1&1 and it's been a satisfying experience so far. There have been some minor issues and their customer service tried their best to help each time. It's overall a good web host with reasonable pricing.

“Faceless customer service”
Reviewed

Single repetitive issue, 12 instances of it happening and every single time I have to spend 2 hours on the phone jumping through hoops and with broken promises of things not happening again.

“Terrible.”
Reviewed

The max php time limit is too low so can't use wordpress. The support staff put you on hold for 10 minutes each time just to answer a question. They don't seem to know anything. I can't keep phoning up. I end up on hold for at least 30 mins in total for each call.

“Easy setup”
Reviewed

I recently purchased a few domains from 1&1 and I have to say it was the best experience I've had with a domain registrar. It was quick, easy, with no unnecessary complications and sites have been running smoothly so far. I'll definitely use them again for more domains.

“It's a pleasure to work with 1&1”
Reviewed

It's been a great experience from signing up to working with 1&1, with no problems whatsoever.

I've got 2 shared sites and over 10 domains with 1&1 and haven't had an issue with any of them.

I've been a happy customer for almost 5 years and recommended them to many associates and they all share the same thoughts.
