1and 1 is down again great.
I probably need to change my hosting to a better one
Never heard of it, take a vps with @GreenCloudVPS fast and not that expensive.
who told you to get 1and1 hosting ? You better go with poweruphosting or some other host.
I just moved 7 sites from 1and1. Went to Dreamhost which is a little bit more expensive, but the service is so much better.
1&1 started making a lot of unauthorized charges to my card (for services I didn't need, like expensive certificates and PHP support for domains I didn't even use. Downtime was really poor.
I'd suggest moving from them as soon as possible! It's a hassle, but I can't afford to have my sites go down and have almost no customer service options.
What are your requirements?
1and1... So many horror stories. I've tried to buy couple of domains from them at some point. I've said I'll never buy anything from that company. It's like they want to piss off clients on purpose.
Check out BHW marketplace (hosting section), lot's of good providers there for sure, migration is free of charge as well with some of them so you don't have to go trough all of the stress with that as well.
This is a great tip! If you can get a hosting provider to migrate your sites for you, it can save valuable time and the nightmare scenario of crashing a site accidentally.
I thought about that for my massplanner.
Can you explain the difference ?
Yea bro, I'm considering moving all sites.
1 and 1 is about the worst host for anyone... they will make you pull all your hair out.
Do what @Nut-Nights says and move to poweruphosting.
They are a seller here and I have both reseller and shared hosting with them and they are solid.
Ah, I got their windows VPS for massplanner as well as a linux VPS to host my own domains, so far very happy about it, it's very fast. Wanted to DL a software package that was 7gb, took about 2-3 min, wished I had this type at speed at home.
They've always been crap in my opinion. Head over to WebHostingTalk web hosting offers section and choose Dedicated, VPS or Shared. There are user comments there, reviews and discounts.
I use Hostwinds, they seem to do a decent job.
Hosting in vps is very good solution.
Check out the offer section. Also check one of the other threads here about not going with hostgator. There is a big list of companies in there that are owned by EIG that I would stay away from as well.
I dumped 1and1 years ago. The only web host I've run into that use their ridiculous contractual commitments. I avoided running into the problem, but I've read so many stories about people having bill collectors sent after them for not cancelling properly. Absolutely absurd. I've had good experiences with Hawk Host.
Unless I'm mixing things up, before 1and1 was called 1and1 they had a different name?
If so then it was the worst hosting company I ever dealt with. And believe me I've seen some shit.
no one buy from 1and1 take a look into BHW marketplace you will find many awesome providers with great discounts.
1and1 is pure garbage
dont buy anything there, domains, hostings, nothing
I would reccomend Wpengine if you are running wordpress sites. Expensive but totally worth it. You can also look at the marketplace section in the forum.
