WapReview.com and WapReview.mobi were both down for about seven hours today starting at around 1 PM Pacific Time. My hosting provider 1and1, can tell be nothing other than that a hardware failure occurred. Everything’s back up now and it looks like the site survived with no lost of data. I hate it when this happens, especially not being able to do anything to fix it. Back to regular posting tomorrow.
Choosing a web host is critical to internet success. I believe I made the horrendous mistake of choosing a company because it had a 5 page ad in a popular computer magazine. In my opinion 1and1 is a horrible company and many customers have voiced a host of complaints on various blogs. It should be a warning that when their phone is answered by a recording that tells you if you have gotten a notice from NCO, a collection agency, to press a certain number. If they are a reputable business, why do they have to send so many accounts to a collection agency?
Also Investigative journalist, Kelli Jack, has written 30 articles about this company and has a suit pending against them. Kelli alleges that 1and1 stole her domain name and sold it. Kelli states: “1and1 should be shut down.”
And finally, the Washington DC, Pennsylvania Better Business Bureau has them listed as “Unsatisfactory” Read comments on the BBB why. Read some customer comments on Red Flag.
