    1and1 has a horrible reputation and I'm not sure why yet.

    But that's a good question that I can't answer and would like to know myself

    Your renewel price would be around $35. They won't allow you to transfer the domain, no answers from support. That's why they've horrible reputation.

    Bingo. Also, I don't know if they still do this but they were super quick to send a persons information to a debt collection agency for the littlest amount.

    to another registrar. Even you unlock the domain they locked it without notice. Simply they suck.

    Don't use them. Had to move a client out from them and was literally a 3 day experience. Tried changing the DNS first to point to another host. They changed it back later at whim. They don't send junk mail to spam folder. They just delete what they think is junk. Stay away. Far away.
