    Bought a domain - haven't receive an activation email.
    Still no domain in my dashboard
    The domain I bought can still be registered in other registrar - it still says domain available
    You will get stressed on their stupid super user-UNFRIENDLY interface
    no E-mail or Chat Support. So if you are not from US. Don't bother looking for support.

    You will face one or another issue with them so better to avoid them.

    Did you received your domain after a few days? I still can register it on other registrar - amazingly it still says the domain I bought is still available.
    I am planning to buy it in namecheap right now but I wonder if it would conflict with my purchase in 1and1.

    .

    Yeah, I was using godaddy in my previous domains. Never had experience this too wait too long everrr and their UI is much easier to use.
    I regret trying out 1and1, so I am going to SPAM the shit out of the internet warning others...

    Thanks for the tips. I am searching on the internet and I have to wait 60 days before I can transfer it on another registrar. Suxxx

    WOW! FREE Whois forever? Thanks for this suggestion!

    Wait until the transfer process starts... If it is still as bad as a couple years ago it's going to cause you a ton of headaches....

    1and1 has no clue what they are doing, they have bad staff, and a horrible user experience... They also do not buy domains right away when you buy from them like namecheap or GoDaddy... I think they either have a quota they fill before buying, or it has to be done manually by staff or something because I have heard stories of almost instantly to a couple days down the road until the domain is actually bought...

    They will scam you by automatically renewing domains that you don't want to renew too. And their renewal prices aren't cheap.

    Just use Namecheap. Free whois, good prices, excellent customer service and best of all: no games!

    Nah...i didn't receive the domain after 3 or 4 days. Contacted support and they are unresponsive and not helpful.
    So i went to register the domain i want with another company. No conflict at all.

    Cheers!

    Few months ago I bought a domain with them, it took 2-3 days (as far as I can remember now) to see the domain in my account. But everything was fine after that.
