Would You Recommend 1 and 1?

Recommended Posts

1 and 1 has $0.99 domain registration offer running. I had an intention of taking advantage of the deal but naturally I had to look around the net to find reviews about the registrar. Most of the reviews I came across though were not that flattering [to 1 and 1].

 

Has anyone here ever registered their domains with 1 and 1? Or even if you haven't, from what you've heard is it a registrar you can recommend?

I used them. I wanted to snatch a domain quickly and was out of cash and the price was right. After the first year the renew price is 14-15 dollars if I remember correctly. I also have a domain with godaddy. I decided to transfer both to namecheap when they are closer to the renewal date as the yearly price is lower.

 

One thing I didn't like was that they called me to try to sell me a hosting and website package. I was very clear I wasn't interested the first time they let a couple of moths pass and call again.

1&1 is an excellent hosting site. It just takes time to familiarize yourself with their website because it's not so user friendly as compared to namecheap.com. Their beginning prices are fair but increases on your renewal so price wise it's not so good on your second year.

I have one site hosted with them. I too got one of those $0.99 deals for the domain and one year of hosting but I'm not planning on renewing it because the regular price for their hosting is $9 per month and that was a project that didn't took off like I thought so I see no point on renewing it. Also, I think there are some other providers that offer the exact same thing for less money.
