My Clients Host At 1and1

I have a client who had me redesign his bands website which is currently hosted at I've never dealt with them before, so I was wondering what everyone's thoughts are on them. So far the technical support has been giving us a hard time retrieving the cpanel password which is different from the ftp.

Where To Host My Clients

Jun 5, 2009

I've been developing websites for clients on and off for about 5 years. I've recently gotten more serious about developing as my client base is growing. So, as I get more clients I develop sites for I need to figure out where to host the sites.

So, the question is VPS, Dedicated, or Shared. How do I compete with companies that charge $6.99 for so much data transfer and storage?

1and1 For Use As A Hotlink Host?

Mar 20, 2009

Does anyone have experiences with using 1and1 shared servers as a hotlink host?

I see they have a $4.99 plan that includes 120GB diskspace and 1200GB bandwidth.

To rehash my other thread (, I'm looking for a separate hosting account to store/hotlink some FLV files that will be used by my client's websites on other servers.

For those of you with experience with 1and1:

How much bandwidth/diskspace did you use?
Did your account ever get suspended for resource/bandwidth usage?
If so, how much were you using of what you were supposedly promised?
What was the performance of their shared servers?
Did you ever have a problem with downloads timing-out?
Look, I'm under no illusion that any company is going to let me use $100 worth of bandwidth for only $5 a month, but I'm not looking to use the whole 1200GB.
At most, I could see myself using less than half (~500GB) of what is offered in their package.
So from those with the experience, what is the verdict on using 1and1 in this manner?

Registered With 1and1, And Want To Host With Godaddy: How??

May 28, 2008

I have already bought my package with godaddy, so I want to get started as quickly as possible. As I go to enter my blogs URL at godaddy so I can create it, it keeps telling my the selected domain is invalid?

I am entering it in the correct place under 'Domain not registered here'. I think it would have something to do with my settings at 1and1 but I am lost

1and1 Won't Host A Domain Name Without Extra Charge?

Jun 7, 2009

I was looking for a domain name and registered it with 1and1 last year, for UK 11 pounds approximately. I then found that they were also charging me approx 30 UK pounds every six months for web hosting space that I did not ask for as I have a great host elsewhere. I have gone to their site and tried to cancel the web hosting while retaining the domain name but it only allows me to cancel the domain name, which I don't want to do. I have tried contacting them multiple times over this additional charge and get stonewalled every time with a standard response that the money is due on my contract. In the circumstances I would like to transfer the domain name to another host as renewal is a couple of months away, but I'm scared that they'll find some way to stop me doing that? ....

Transfering My Clients To A New Host But Maintaining Website Function And Integrity

Jan 6, 2009

I have 35 clients hosting on my dedicated server.

I am going to be ending my service as a host provider, and I need to transfer all of my clients to a new host.

Many of my clients sites were written 3-4 years ago in php while global vars was still off, and so many of the sites might not function correctly if I just pop them to a new host.

My first solution would be to bypass the php .ini file with a public_html/ based ini that would override any newer server settings.

Does anyone know of a good host that could take my clients? And also support the php version locally to the shared account?

I need a host that is reliable, and honest.

Am I going about this the right way?

I am open to any suggestions or advice on this.

I should probably add, all of my clients pay on an annual basis from $89-$140. None of my clients run video sites or any heavy media stuff.

How Much For A Set Of Clients

May 21, 2009

I will soon be meeting a few people who plan on selling their clients to me that are currently hosting with them.

I have never bought/sold clients before and would like some guidance from the community here on WHT.

Correct me if im wrong.

I should consider purchasing those clients who's contracts are going to expire soon, preferably within the next 6 months atleast?

Should i or should i not purchase clients who they have recently taken a renewal fee from that will last for atleast another 6 months?

How will calculate on what prices they should be selling their clients to me for? Are they going to add up a years worth of hosting before they set a final sale price?
At the end of the day i dont want to take on clients who have already paid for their hosting and wont be expiring anytime soon. I think, if i take them on board now they will be using up my hosting resources at my expense which i will have to wait until their next renewal is due.

The guys i will be buying the clients from have their current hosting plans as follows:

Monthly prices range from 1.90 5.00 9.50 15.50,

Yearly prices range from 19.00 50.00 95.00 155.00

Depending on what packages their clients are on now, how much do you think on average 5 clients would be worth roughly?

Before i purchase what else do i need to look into?

What other questions do i need to ask other than the likelihood of how long they expect their clients to stay with them/(me).

Is A 1and1 VPS Right For Me?

Sep 19, 2007

Well, my current hosting at is expiring in a couple of months and I don't want to stay with them for a minute longer.

I have about 5 domains that I require hosting for, and another few which will be aliases to these domains.

I had a look at and would need a separate hosting package for each domain.

I then looked at 1and1's virtual private servers. These hopefully fit the bill as it is quite cheap at £15/pm.

I was wondering if this fits my needs. Would I be able to host several websites here? Or just one domain?

Also, they say that I have root access, will I be able to do just about anything on there then? E.g. install imagemagick, edit php.ini, enable wildcard DNS and use mod_rewrite for subdomains... etc.

Given that I have root access to the VPS, how can it be that they say the max number of email accounts is 150, what else is restricted?

I'm a bit confused as to what sort of abilities a VPS will give me. 1and1's site doesn't explain what I could use it for as well as I would like.

1and1 Getting Better

Jul 13, 2008

1and1 has always getting a lot of fudge here on WHT and a lot of times they deserve it. In the past their support has totally sucked. However, I have noticed lately that their support is actually improving A LOT!! I've been getting responses within a few hours and that is really good considering it would take days before. Also, in the past their responses were just generic and non-helpful but lately they have actually provided personal help and attention and fixed all the issues I've had. I know this should be expected from a registrar/webhost but I have to say I'm quite impressed. They are after all a really budget company.

Btw, I use them for all my domain registrations and also have a small hosting package with them for my static small sites. I'm not brave enough to put my more busy sites there yet.

Clients Can't Connect To IP

Jan 16, 2007

We're having a small problem with one of our Ventrilo boxes (Linux) that seems to be blocking users from connecting. The DC (The Planet) is reporting that the issue is likely with the user and my tech is also saying the same thing. I have reason to believe they're both wrong but wanted to see if anyone had any ideas.

Here are 3 tracert's that show normal activity until the user reaches the DC network and then they can't reach our server.

All 3 of these are from different users experiencing the exact same problem.

Email Clients

Mar 21, 2007

I am trying to find a good solution for email. I use a Linux based server running CestOS, WHM and cpanel. I absolutely hate the webmail clients that come with cpanel (horde, squirrel mail, neomail) so I use outlook instead. Problem is, I use the same email between different computers and end up getting the same messages twice. This does not seem to matter if I use pop3 or IMAP; I still get the same emails in both places.

What I would like to see is a possibility of a mail client that is either web based, or something I can add to my server that allows me to take advantage on IMAP - and have it work like it is supposed to. I like the functionality of pop3 in outlook because it allows you to easily delete and maintain a clean inbox.

DNS Conundrum With

Sep 8, 2007

This is the problem I'm facing:

I have a domain registered with ( I have a VPS running Linux with a different host. I have configured bind to run as my nameserver for the domains and (I have run dig to verify the bind is configured properly.)

The problem: when I try to change the primary and secondary name servers for at using the form provided by the 1and1 control panel, I get the following error message:

The name server is not sufficient or hasn't been approved.Subdomains of the original domainname as name servers for the original domainname need a fixed IP! Please refer to the FAQ (keyword: Glue domain)!

So I enter the IP address and I get the following error message:

The name server is not sufficient or hasn't been approved.

So I called support hoping they could fix this. But it appeared that the young woman who took my call was unable to comprehend the problem (she kept referring to Plesk -- which had nothing to do with the issue here).

I was prepared for this and hoping to get passed up to someone who knew what she was doing. But before that could happen, after going around in circles with Level 1 support for about 10 minutes, I mysteriously got disconnected! (I guess I had used up my time quota.)

Am I SOL here? It seems like a chicken-and-egg problem. I can't change the DNS settings until 1and1 is able verify that my nameserver domains are valid. But they won't be valid until 1and1 changes them. And 1and1 support seems totally incapable of providing any help.

I know I could use a free third-party service, but I wanted to have some practice running my own nameserver. Also I want to be able to add subdomains myself. (Right now, I have to manually add them through and am limited to 5.)

Any help is appreciated. Otherwise, I'll just use this as an opportunity to vent my frustration at's support. <sigh>

Changing From 1and1

Jul 23, 2008

I have been with this hosting company for almost five years now and until today the service has been excellent. I am having massive ftp issues. I have 41 different domains that I run for a variety of projects. Needless to say I keep each website in a different folder. I just tried to switch one of my blogs from blogger to wordpress. Blogger won't let me have my domain back and keeps blocking it with a 404 error. But that is a separate issue. I tried using one of my extra domains and pointing it at my new blog folder. But it keeps bouncing back to my root directory. I contacted 1and1 and they reset the server, but now they are blaming me for the issue. I can access the blog through it's subdirectory but I can't post the blog there.

Anyways, I am not ready to move over all of my websites, but I do want to move my blog to a new host. I am mainly hoping that I can escape 1and1 and blogger in one move if I change the host of this one website. It's funny I have been happy for years and recommended them to friends, but now I am very disappointed. Can someone recomend a reliable host? I am looking for one with a cheap lowend package to start off. If I end up staying I will need a lot of bandwidth as I have a podcast that had a lot of traffic. Basically, there are so many companies that I just can't tell which ones are reliable. That's my main concern. Also I use SQL a lot. Thanks!
