    1and1 is offering FREE 6 Months Hosting with 1 Domain (w/ Private Registration)

    Heres the Package:
    $0 for 6 months, 3.99 month after
    1 Free Domain registration (w/ Private Registration)
    10GB Space
    (Unlimited) GB Transfer
    Google Adwords	 $25 voucher
    Yahoo!	 $25 voucher

    Here's the smallprint
    Setup FEE is $4.99 at the time of purchase
    The billing cycle for the 1&1 Beginner Package with Coupon Code is 6 months,
     payable in advance.  So at 6 months youre going to get charged $23.94 for 
    the 7th-12th month Billable on the 6th month.

    So in otherwords, you get Domain w/Private Reg, 6 Months hosting for $4.99

    Not sure about the conditions of transfering the domain out.
    But I have transfered out a free domain from them before (8 months after).

    I personally have used 1and1 and have had no problems but theyre
    notoriously known for having problems (domain issues).

    But to those who do not care, use 1and1, or just want this offer.

    Coupon Code:

    They're awful. The user experience/ UI on their control panel is garbage, and any domain you register with them under this offer they control the DNS. Thus, holding you hostage. I would avoid them like the plague.

    TBH 1&1 is not a company you would like your website to be hosted at or your domain to be registered with. I had once bought a domain from them .. paid the super-low $3 per year fee and the domain was NEVER registered in my name ( eventhough my CC was charged for that amount ).

    I contacted their support and there was no reply from them for 4 days, but I really wanted that domain and didn't know of a better registrar, I thought of giving it another shot and AGAIN, I got charged $3 and the domain never got registered.

    1&1 is a SCAM company. They do not give a shit about what the customers say or write about them, they keep on scamming people day in day out. I would recommend everyone to NOT get anything from 1&1. You search for "1&1 scam" "1&1 fraud" and you will see numerous forum posts about this.

    Just my 2 Cents :D
