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.
I've been on Webfaction's shared hosting plan from 2013 when they were owned by private entity and hosted the servers with So...展開
ftlayer datacenter. But at the end of 2017 they got acquired by Godaddy and moved to HEG's St.Louis data center and the new servers are just awful. They go down atl east 2-3 times a week! Webfaction uses Ngnix as reverse proxy and many a times my sites were automically fall out from their configuration files - the result - blank pages. I had to open support department to get the things right. Webfaction does not use HTTP2, neither litespeed server or mariadb! They use the heavy and slow Apache server. The reliability of their servers has fallen down. They increase pricing from $8 to $10 per month for a shared web hosting plan. But you don't get a dedicated IP or control panel or access to backups. Their support is good.
