It is my personal experience that 1&1 does not respond to complaints or work to serve the best interests of their customers. Their customer service and technical support perform at the lowest possible standard of any organization in their industry. Persons should note that (a) as of 30 September 2009, 1&1 internet has an "F" rating with the Better Business Bureau and (b) numerous other forums show significant dissatisfaction with 1&1.
Persons considering any prospective vendor, including 1&1 Internet, for domain registration or hosting are strongly encouraged to first review the most recent experiences posted on various forums and the current rating with the Better Business Bureau before engaging them as a vendor.

Alan Burchette's Comments on 1and1.com
- Alan Burchette (frustrated) : Not happy. . They have a very confusing system for cancellation that ensures less people leave. Unfortunately, it angers people because 1and1 doesn't cancel a package if you do not follow their very specific instructions. They will "un-cancel" you if you do not confirm cancellation by email, even if that email doesn't come. . You may be surprised by a bill and threats of being sent to collection agencies for non-payment of the package that you didn't know wasn't canceled. . 1and1.com is BBB rated "F" Fri May 08 07:48:43 UTC 2009
