    Honestly, I don't feel good now. It's like having a house get burned down or havinga jewelry store get busted by robbers. I am so fucking down right now.

    I might need a little motivation from you guys right now. Recommended hosting providers are very much appreciated as well...make sure it really does kicks Dreamhost's ass.

    thank you

    fuck, how long have you been using dreamhost?

    I recently started sending out about 170 emails an hour and I am worried they might catch on. How bad was your spamming?

    1and1 is by far and away the worst host i have ever used in my life. Ok, there space is ok, but their service, their pricing and everything about those jokers sucks. The support is most amusing. I hate them with a passion and i doubt i'm the only one. :)

    @falarious since 2006 I think but I was not a BH-er then

    @sonneti I've been there man. that's nothing. they're just going to upsell you with their fucking Dreamhost PS

    @abh1 thanks...anymore damn good host that could surely kick dreamhost's ass?

    the feeling fucking sucks. i am both fucking pissed and sad at the same time. I have like 40+ domains hosted in there. but come to think of it, not all of them makes me money.

    like my friend Arthro said to me via chat, we are blackhatters...nothing and nobody can stop us from making fucking money online.

    If your not making money on those domains, I don't get it. If you been with Dreamhost with about 3 years already, and with 40 domains, you'd be lucky to be in Dreamhost for a year, but in this case, you were in it for 3 years.

    Dreamhost is really strict on their policies. It is either follow them or not. I really don't believe they pulled the plug on you without fair warning beforehand. You must have done something.

    What is up with the swearing? That is what you get for purchasing shared hosting with a cheap hosting company. Let this be a lesson and go with a fair better host such as Hostgator.

    please re-read...I said "not all of them".

    there really is no fair warning

    why shouldn't I swear? it feels good. oh btw, it's a VPS not shared.

    ahhh finally a nice advice...yeah I'll consider that. thanks.

    ROFL thanks for the laugh, i had the same thing sort of thing happen but it filled the whole 500GB HD on my dedicated box. I missed up the script timing and was processing every second instead of every hour.

    Funny stuff. As for shared hosts, a few people here offer shared for BH purposes.

    ?http://domainwriter.blogspot.com/2009/06/top-6-reasons-to-avoid-1and1com-like.html
    One thing I hardly EVER do is insult a company. If I don't like a company, I usually just don't write about it. I must REALLY REALLY have had a bad experience to write about it on my blog. I like to write positive things on my blog so me writing something negative on my blog is usually scarce.

    Here are the top 6 reasons to avoid 1and1.com like the plague.

    I EVEN mentioned to 1and1 how I am going to write negative things about them on my blog, but they just laughed it off.

    #1 Most domainers will avoid purchasing a domain name from you if it is registered at 1and1.

    #2 1and1 is the ONLY domain registrar I know of that won't let you give a FREE push from one 1and1 account to another. They charge you a fee on top of a renewal fee.

    #3 All your domain names are on automatic renewal (something that 1and1 does NOT tell you) The ONLY way to change that is to login to cancel 1and1.com which is the BIGGEST pain in the neck. I also can't begin to tell you the number of times I would turn a domain name off renewal ONLY to mysteriously get charged. Somehow every domain name that I have turned off has mysteriously turned back onto renewal. 1and1 didn't believe me until I got a charge on the bill and this one time the domain name was actually turned off renewal.

    #4 1and1.com is NOT icaan registered.

    #5 The reps at 1and1 don't speak a word of English. Good luck trying to understand them.

    #6 Whenever there is a screwup with the bill, they want you to fax information over to them, which is a MAJOR pain in the neck. The last time I did that and then logged into my account somehow my account had someone else's name on it and when I called up 1and1 apparently they screwed up.


    I believe that 1and1 may be popular in Germany but as far as the rest of the world MOST people avoid them like a plague. So if you are a domainer, I am warning you based on my experience NOT to purchase any domain names from 1and1.

    When I first got into the business of purchasing domain names I started with 1and1 thinking that hey they were cheaper than GoDaddy so what do I have to lose right? Well I sure learned the hard way when no domainers wanted to buy any of my domain names and the reason why? because it was at 1and1.

    If you own domain names at 1and1 and I am scaring you well don't be scared. I have some advice for you. If you try to sell your domain names and somebody doesn't want to buy any of your domain names because they are registered at 1and1 then offer to pay the transfer fee so that they can go ahead and register the domain name(s) at GoDaddy.

    Once again I try my hardest NOT to bash a company on my domain blog but I HATE to see anyone go through HELL like I went through with 1and1. We all learn from our mistakes right? So why not share my experience with others.

    Let me also mention (and this is NOT to brag) I have sold over 125 domain names in the past 3 years and so I believe that I know what I am talking about when I say to avoid 1and1.

    If you have any questions then please feel free to post it in the commentary section. :)

    Deadster if you can afford it go with a dedicated machine. This still wont shield you from ALL the hassles, but for a lot of things you'll have to answer only to yourself.

    For dedicated machines I recommend theplanet.
