1&1 have this absurd support scenario where you have an individual support agent who is your dedicated support person. Th...展開
is means that if your agent is busy you have to rely on hope that someone else will see that your agent hasn't responded for a while and will intervene. Of course, they act like they have zero context and approach your issue like it's the first 1&1 have heard of it.
They also do this thing where the only available support option is to call them up on the telephone. Ocassionally you can do live support chat but only if your individual agent is available. Of course, the one time out of possibly 50 I have got through the agent didn't respond for 10 minutes so my attention went elsewhere and when she eventually did respond I wasn't paying attention so she closed the issue as solved (without solving it).
That is the running theme.. I have had the same issue for weeks and I just go around and around in circles trying to solve it with different people. The issue stems from where I was told I could upgrade from one account to another and they would handle the transfer. They didn't and then wanted to charge me to do the upgrade. Fortunately I had saved the chat log but even then they have still not resolved the issue and I remain paying for both services.
AVOID AVOID AVOID. They are totally useless.

essage that the boot disk was not found. The only chance to restart the server was to power it off and boot it from administration panel, that was pretty slow. From January, this solution starts booting going to bootloader in about 4-5 minutes. I've tried a lot with their support, at one point it seems that worked, but failed again, and they said there is no configuration problem. But my server still fails to find the disk on warm boot. I kept it 6 months, because I made the mistake to pay on this period from the beginning. I don't know for other services, but for VPS, sorry, no.
