1&1internet – Hosting Suckage

1&1Internet Web Hosting Screen Capture

Are you hosting your blog with 1&1internet? This dandy of a hosting outfit also known as 1and1.com just might allow you to open up a support ticket if you are currently blogging on their servers. Or, perhaps you’d be interested in taking a gander at the 1and1internet Web site to see what products they offer? If you’re lucky, you can have a chance at purchasing one of their products. Or can you?

Nope.

Here’s the error message I received from 1and1internet at the order.1and1.com page:

Service Temporarily Unavailable
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.
Apache Server at order.1and1.com Port 80

If a leading global blog hosting company like 1&1internet cannot even host their own order page, what’s the world coming to?

    oh well, only if you don’t do anything at all you cant make mistakes.
    Sure its annoying, but i have seen worse hosting providers. Some who don’t give you any support at all (“Our email server? No, we can’t set you up with a mailbox on your domain. Can you not use yahoo or hotmail instead?”), or some who always need 2 days to reply to a ticket, or the company who got the data center flooded during the annual spring flood a couple of years ago …

  3. […] 1&1 ranters, want to see something funny? […]

  4. You said suckage … hehehehe hehe. :D

    Just messing around in my lastest thing that I now really friggin hate … WEB HOSTING !!! The whole hosting industry sucks !!!

    There’s 24 million of these friggers to choose from. They all make me sick for making it so complicated and trying to screw people every single poss way they can !!!

    Ummmm, sorry needed to get that off my chest. On the internet backroads I’ve been traveling for DAYS NOW !!! D:

    Quite a few folks suggest that 1&1 tends to seriously suck. In multiple suckage configurations. Sighs … though as mentioned they all suck for making finding hosting worth a crap such a PITA.

    Stop reselling damn you !!! There should be 20 web hosts to choose from. So it’s easy to figure out who sucks and who doesn’t. Not 20 million of you crapheads !!!

    AHHHHH !

  5. For the past 3 weeks+ I haven’t been able to access nearly anything in the control panel. This is BAD! Considering moving to a new hosting provider ASAP.

  6. Just got this one.

    So which is it, success or error?
