Thought everyone would appreciate this seeing as you all seem to hate 1and1. Got attacked by hackers this week and a lot of our sites got wrecked. Because this has happened before, I finally decided to move the sites from 1and1 to hostgator - I used their reseller package so every site is on its own package and therefor not susceptible to any issues that the other sites may face. Took about 3 days to move everything, but now only have 7 sites physically hosted on 1and1. Lets see how hostgator compares now. Surprisingly it already seems that its faster - one particular site took 2.5 seconds to load with 1and1. And now its on hostgator it took something like 1.9 seconds One negative is that 1and1 keep 5 revisions of all files on a rolling basis, whereas hostgator only keep 1 weekly backup of accounts under 20gb apparently.
