ys the best plan for the money. Do your homework and compare details you will see 1&1 is actually a pretty good choice. Those with bad reviews are either just complaining like some people do, or they really don't know what they are comparing it to. Every company has a bad experience but I have proven to myself by doing my homework that 1&1 is the best choice for the money. There is better but some like rackspace start their smallest plans at over $700 monthly. Wow, that's too expensive for what I do, 1&1 is perfect for me. I host over 100 websites.

here and there and it would get resolved. One thing that I wish they provided was a backup service. I way of offloading your information so that you can restore your server easily, however they will plug in your old drive and allow you to copy the needed files and there support is very fast. One thing to note is there support is hardware only! This is an unmanaged service so don't expect to get the answer you're looking for if something isnt working the way you like.
I now use there custom dedi service and it is much better! They provide on the go upgrades and everything. I've been a customer for over 6 months and have not experienced many problem thus far.
I felt a need to post a review since all I keep seeing is bad reviews. I've had nothing but a good experience with Wholesale Internet.
Our time with 1&1 was truly shocking. We chose managed cloud hosting which would go down for days at a time. Numerous cal...展开
ls to support only to be eventually told "It's old infrastructure, you're best off moving to a different service" we did move. Away from the company. The support is terrible outside of UK GMT (where we got to learn everyone in the UK support centre by name)! Chat boxes unanswered and support responses unhelpful. Sad but true. Even sadder that a company like this remains in business making large sums of undeserved money.
What would you feel if you sign up for dedicated server and billing is failing again and again and every time it fails you ar...展开
e charged disconnection fee. Meaning Wholesaleinternet billing system from 90s is failing and each of that time you pay disconnection fee. Add to this long downtimes. Some of them were over 2 days. And finish it with worst customer support where they close tickets without any reply. That's what you get when you buy cheap unmanaged server from WholeSaleInternet. Our fault. No more WSI
