1and1.comworld's worst webhosting company

Review updated:

There are so many choices for webhosting and web domains. Do NOT make the mistake that I did and utilize 1 and 1.
Run away, and run fast. This company sent my name/account to collections without my knowledge. I did not ask, nor did I want my account to renew. Their service was so poor. I did not update the credit card they had on file for my account because I expected that my domain would expire on the expiration date (through which I was paid in full). No, they charged me anyway, for a service that I did not want. They then assessed late fees. Then, althought they say they 'made a call to the phone number on file' they went ahead and sent my account to collections! I then had to deal with one of the worst collection agencies ever, pay for a service (plus late fees) that I did not authorize, nor want AND I also had to pay the collection agency a 'service fee.' I contacted 1 and 1 to explain that I was unaware that my account was being charged, although I did not renew and they blamed me for not getting their calls.

I encourage you to avoid this company at all costs.
