My Review 

If you are smart simply stay away. 1and1 MAY PROVIDE HOSTING BUT will use every way they can to extract money from you regardless of what you agree on at the beginning. I have been using hosting companies for over 11 years and other than 1and1 no provider ever charged me triple or more for services I never wanted. They are masters at charging unjustified charges, when it re-occurred 1and1 first apologized but then dragged me for weeks and then refused to erase these charges. I realized it is a method there. I simply moved all my websites out of their hands. Don't waste your time and money there.

How long did you use this provider? 

1-5 years
