    Stay away from 1&1, they give terrible products at high prices. Use hover.com to buy domains, they barely do any upselling and have great support

    So I actually went and registered a domain with 1&1 to see how many .99 .coms I could get. Used different name data etc and they locked my domain after purchase. Any ideas around this?

    there payment renewals are shady. I recently just bought the cheap 1$ domain with them had to wait 2 months then got my site off their hosting and transfered to namecheap asap. Wouldnt trust them.

    Don't go for domain with 1and1. Just stay away from them.
    It's better to go with NameSilo or NameCheap, I just found this coupon code for NameSilo.
