We are a small animal charity and have been with 1and1 for 3 years, but recently, their tech support has evaporated and appear not to understand our problems - We use their newsletter tool to to send our lifeline newsletters each month which worked for several years, but that has now changed and regardless of how we try to fix it, almost all of our newsletters are now treated as spam, including 1and1! We were told to try another database and new outgoing email address, which we did ( and took a… Read Full Review

I don't know why 1and1 get such bad press I have a business account with them and I have to say they have been exceptional compared to previous hosting companies. And they do have mySQL5 when you set up your databases they offer you the choice of 4 or 5. I recommend them… Read Full Review

This company is awful... NEVER NEVER DO ANYTHING WITH THEM!
Just blocked all out outgoing emails and claimed we were sending spam which we were not! It took weeks to get the issue sorted out!
Avoid this company at all costs!… Read Full Review

I just signed up with them a couple of hours ago. I spke to a guy yesterday who advised me that their Business 1 managed server package contains mySql version 5. I told him that this is not stated on the site and I need to make sure this is the case because it is the main reason I would go with them. He assured me more than once that it is definately mySql 5. Today I signed up and found out that it is actually mySql 4 which I can't use unfortunately. I have spent about 3 hours now on the phone… Read Full Review

Bought email hosting for a year with them, paid the year upfront, then found hosting somewhere else 3 months later so switched over and left it. 10 months later I get a letter through the door from a debt collection agency because 1and1 were trying to charge me for another year. They did not once try and communicate with me first as far as I am aware. I personally feel I have been forced to pay another £15 for something I never used. Do not recommend to use 1and1.co.uk… Read Full Review

While for the most time 1and1 web hosting do work, their poor customer service makes me wish I'd taken my business elsewhere. Poor at dealing with customers and would not let me pay my bill when they requested payment after you cancelled because the domain appeared to have been automatically renewed without me realising… Read Full Review

Very average for me until I needed help or had any technical questions, then it started to go downhill. Unhelpful support in my experience: slow response, questions still have not yet been answered in any kind of useful way I feel.
I have been with 1and1 for a few years but I have been wanting to move away for almost as long. I could not recommend them… Read Full Review

I am a .NET developer and work with many different hosting companies. To be honest it's usually a case of "best of a bad bunch". 1and1.co.uk have, to date, been the worst for me! My main issue is support. Having spent 30 minutes on the phone with a support guy I ended up putting the phone down on him. It took the best part of 10 minutes for him to understand that all I wanted to do was to create a folder and upload a file to it (using C#). I am, as I type, now trying to rectify the issue over… Read Full Review

I do not recommend this company. At first they seemed OK. It was cheap to register domain names. I had a few domains which I didn't want to renew, I searched all the help sections and couldn't find the info and eventually contacted 1and1. They sent me the link to another website altogether. Why don't they put this information on their main website?
Anyway, a year later I had some more domains I didn't want but thought I'd just let them expire like I do with other companies now. However, they… Read Full Review

None really, they seemed cheap at first but wern't in the end for me.
Do not recommend 1and1.co.uk, I regret having ever buying products from them! Misleading prices in my opinion
Personally found it difficult to leave them
Unhelpful customer service
Website is hard to use in my experience
I had billing problems
Cancellation problems in my case… Read Full Review

I have 20+ sites hosted on 1and1 and am now about to move them all. I have experienced all kinds of problems with ftp access, erratic response, meaningless stats reports, and final straw has been my sites have been inaccessible through various ISPs for 4 days now. Tech Support have been robotic, don't listen and try to shift the problem elsewhere… Read Full Review

I will never use 1 and 1 again and can never recommend them to a friend.
The customer service has been unhelpful and do not know enough about my problem I feel.
Currently we have to go through the expensive process of moving our web service hosting away from 1and1… Read Full Review

Truly unhelpful customer service, I personally felt nearly everytime I talked to them they still didnt understand what my problem was with their web hosting, I cant seem to get anywhere as far as I am concerned, therefore I do not think there is any good points. Therefore I do not recommend 1and1.co.uk… Read Full Review

I have never written about a company before, but these guys made me so angry, I could not take it any more. First of all, when I had a problem with them charging me for services I didn't even order, they refused to refund me. It took over 2 months and they didn't care, so I stopped paying them. As soon as they started complaining I owed them money, I mentioned I wasn't going to pay them any more until they refunded for there errors. A day later they refunded over £150.00 they owed in… Read Full Review

Previously I paid by credit card,
2 years later that credit card expired,
rather than tell/email me it had expired they just blocked my account and passed it straight to a debt collection agency as far as I am aware? Therefore I do not recommend 1and1.co.uk… Read Full Review

I used them for years mainly because they were initially cheap but the service was never great as far as I am concerned. This week they finally convinced me to leave by what I believe they did, locking my account and charging me for a bill I am sure I have already paid.
As far as I am aware they gave me no warning and I only realised something was wrong when my employees complained about their email not working. When I called 1&1 they said I couldn't pay over the phone because my details had… Read Full Review
