1and1.com hosting provider review

1&1 is my current hosting provider for this website. I have only good things to say about them:

  • Secure Shell (SSH) is included (Business package and up)
  • There is a WebspaceExplorer for easy deletion of directories on the server, unzipping of zip files right on the server, etc (This all is much harder or longer to do over FTP)
  • 24/7 phone support
  • Statistics
  • No outrageous storage over limit fees.
  • phpMyAdmin


Something to watch out for: by default, all domain names that you buy will point to your default hosting space / domain name. If you are buying domains just to hold them, you might not want them to be forwarded to your website. You will need to specify a fake subdirectory destination to domains that you do not want pointing to your website. Also, there is a problem with Google AdSense for parked domains. For that, you will need another DNS host (which may be a problem to set up or may cost you).


Hard to find info:

There are no refunds for domain name registrations.

To cancel a domain name, or your hosting, there's a hidden Cancellation Control panel.
