theres a lot of negatives of 1and1 from what ive heard, there servers are not located in uk, theyre in germany, i had a friend who had a server with them, took 48hrs to replace server, 8 hours to get a response from support ticket after certain time it goes to their american support line, first thing to remember dont go buy price, the price may look great but is there the service to go along with it, might be worth also checking out forum2.co.uk as its uk host based

I have been with 1and1 a lot latly they have been really good - but it took about 5 dyas to replay a small shared hosting for me?
but there servers are fast I quite like it - There domains are cheap I am in the UK based servers which I am happy with
I found them a bit of a pain in the rear, when I used them for a client. I needed to change the IP address of the server in the headerfile so asked them if they could give me the IP. Took them ages to reply, and as far as I remember they wouldnt tell me, so I went with webFusion (the client wanted a well known host for some strange reason)
