Opinion and final valuation of our experience with 1and1

Opinions 1and1

After to have proven 1and during enough time with hosting contracted since practically the company arrived at Spain, we can say that it is a very tempting company by its prices but that then, at the time of the truth it can bring to you more than a surprise.

The communication with them sometimes is complicated and to terminate a service we had enough problems.

I consider that we are in front of a company with tempting prices and services, without forgetting to us the great work of marketing that their employees do, despite I think that to day of today they exist alternative quite better as choosing 1and1. For a simple project he can merit but eye and so contracts. If you look for other valuations in Internet you will see that there is much people who have had problems with them so as you tenth, she looks at other alternatives that are many in the market.
