    godaddy vs 1and1

    Which one is better in shared hosting between godaddy and 1&1?

    this depends on how you want to use them. According to reviews here godaddy has better support. 1 und 1 has a great network though.

    Been with 1&1 for almost three years and love em. I was with GoDaddy right before them and canceled when php uploads (yes, uploads... doing NOTHING but uploading the files) would break their directory structure and they'd have to cancel my account and rebuild it from scratch... went through that 3 times. I also didn't like that simple little things like useful stats were an add on at GoDaddy rather than a part of the package... the upselling is CONSTANT.

    I was at the book store the other day looking at computer magazines, and I noticed that 1&1 had full page (and even multi-page) adds in just about every design or hardware magazine I picked up. I'm wondering if this is smart marketing or not for a hosting company... I'd like to know what their return on this is.

    This is the same in every US, Canadian, British and German magazine that is vaguely related to IT.

    I have a 1and1 web hosting account and its not bad. I've only had 1 outage in about a year, which lasted about 10 mins. I've had to call up their support a few times, and its really hard to hear them.

    The Indian accents aren't a big factor to me, as I work through it, but the connections are really bad. Most of the time there is static on the line, and the volume is always very low.

    1and1 has a downtime of 10 min in a year then what about godaddy's downtime?

    Which will be better for an online store?

    I've not heard good things about GoDaddy hosting unless you're just hosting a very small personal static-paged web site. I've heard some bad things about 1&1 but given the choice between those two alone I would probably pick 1&1.

    As always, please do sone research/searching on here for reviews of both so that you can form your own opinions beyond that which you are told on this thread.

    I've used both there services, but only GoDaddy's web hosting. My first domain I bought was from 1and1 and I thought "Wow this is great, cheap domain and reliable uptime". Which was all true, that's not where my problems with 1and1 are though.

    Comparing GoDaddy and 1and1's domain propagation, GoDaddy has them beat by a long shot. When I changed name servers with 1and1 it took the normal 48-72 hours for other people to be able to navigate to that link. Now, that is acceptable considering that's what it is supposed to take. On the other hand, when I switched to GoDaddy my domain propagation was near instant. Within a couple of minutes my site was accessible, and not just to me. That impressed me, and for a couple dollars more you can have your website up and running days sooner.

    Hosting threw GoDaddy for me was a pain, I would never go there for web hosting again. I was not able to upload a simple .sql backup from my old host, because the format was "not accepted". I quickly phoned there support line and they were unable to help me, so I had to start from square one. For me being so used to cPanel it was nearly impossible for me to comfortably navigate there own custom control panel. (Hey, at least I didn't have to pay long distance for calling there support phone! ).

    Both good companies, but I prefer to go with less-known hosting places. You can get nearly whatever you want with them because some hosts offer so many features to suit all your needs.

    LOL, that's like asking whether one generic unsalted peanut is better than another...

    I recommend doing a SEARCH through the forums for both companies, you'll get a real eyeful on them both.

    Hardly... I have found 1&1 to be spectacularly, awesomely unique... even life changingly good (and that is no exaggeration... 1&1's offerings have made a direct and MAJOR difference in my life path)!

    Hardly... I have found 1&1 to be super smooth and their data center is, by all evidence (including the word of someone who has been to and worked at the data center as an independent contractor)... beautifully put together.

    GoDaddy's hosting did indeed suck for me though... their directory structure completely broke and had to be rebuilt THREE TIMES just from uploading wordpress... I kid you not.

    Bunch a FUD slangin haters!

    If I had a dollar for every time you called "FUD" on this forum I'd be rich. Just because you don't agree with something doesn't make it FUD

    Comparing 1&1 to a car that's missing cylinders and blowing smoke implies that there servers run like crap... that they have a poor setup, and that is completely false FUD.

    The directory breaking from simply uploading wordpress is absolute FACT... not opinion or metaphor!
