Monday, November 30, 2009 Continues to Refuse Me To Transfer My Domains is the worst web host company in the world.  Not only are they unreliable, but they have also proven that they will screw over even their best customers.  I don't expect them to be in business at this time next year.

The most current issue that I'm having with them is that they continue to make it difficult (seemingly impossible) to take back control of domains that I have bought and paid for.  Most recently they have refused to transfer my charity domain, to my new registrar and host.

Update: Still Refusing to Update My Contact Info and Release Domains

I just have to say that sucks!  They continue to try to fuck with me by not allowing me access to domains (and email addresses) that I have owned for many years.  Despite the fact that I've sent them all requested information (including a copy of my drivers license) over 3 times, they have refused to update my domain registration information, give me a list of all the domains I own or transfer these domains to another registrar.  (I am using as registrar and host for now).

This should not be happening, but because thinks it is ok to screw even their best long term customers, I continue to pay the price of lost advertising revenues each and every day.

Don't you even consider using 1and1 as a web host or even domain registrar, because if they'd screw their best customers, they'd be happy to screw you too.

Sunday, November 1, 2009 Still Refusing to Release My Domains! has continued to mess with me.  After canceling my account with over 65 domains and many websites and email addresses for no reason, they have continued to refuse to release my domains to a new registrar - or change the contact info on the domains.  #Boycott1and1

Lots of People Hate - They've Been Screwed Too

Just stumbled across this blog post on the First Page of Google no less :

I already knew they would treat others like this too, but this is more proof that is not the company you want to use as your web host or registrar.  Beware of 1and1! Refuses to Allow Me Control of My Domains has refused to give me control of my domains - canceled my hosting account (even though prepaid), removed all my email addresses and has refused to transfer most of my 65+ domains I have registered there.  They won't even give me a list of the domains I have paid them to registers. definitely is about the worst possible choice you could make for a web host or domain registrar. will make you pay too.  They've cost me thousands of dollars, over a hundred hours of work attempting (with limited success) to move my websites and domains, and years off my life because of the undue stress they have caused me. 

I hope you don't make the same mistake I did. I was paying 1and1 so much money each month for over 6 years, I thought they would actually take care of me - instead they continue to try to screw me.

Tuesday, October 27, 2009 Continues to Attempt to Make My Life Difficult

The ongoing battle with my soon to be former webhost and terrible domain registrar - continues.  At this point I simply want to transfer all my domains away from them. 

They refuse to give me a list of my domains.
They have asked for my login info and payment information at least four times by email in the past 24 hours.
Now they are requiring I send them a copy of my drivers license.

and continue to cause more pain and time suck.

BEWARE of - if you use them, they will make you pay - in money, time and pain.

1and1 Sucks!  Find a better domain registrar and web host - it won't be difficult ...

Need a Webhost? Do NOT Even Consider 1and1 - They Are Bad People

If you are looking for a web host, I sincerely hope you don't have the misfortune of running into  If you do - get away quick.  They are very bad people, who are malicious to even their best customers!

My suggestion for now for an inexpensive webhost is - although their customer service isn't exactly easy to get in touch with ...

1and1 is the Worst Hosting Company EVER - Don't Use 1and1

Not satisfied with taking my money for over 5 years, took down all of my 50 + websites a couple of weeks ago - and for no reason (they're paid for).  I guess that wasn't enough, as now they are not even allowing me to point them or transfer them to another host and registrar.

This has literally had a huge negative effect on my health, let alone all the advertising revenue and other business that I have lost as a result.  They have basically ruined a long time customer - and don't give a crap.

If you are thinking about hosting with 1and1 - please rethink it.  If you do host with them now, make arrangements to have your sites moved - or they will screw you too.  I never thought it would happen to such a loyal, long time and paying customer, but it sure did .... sucks the big one and has screwed me for the last time - don't let them screw you too!

First it started out last Wednesday when I woke to find had arbitrarily and without notice shut down my heavily trafficked news site. Now they have taken down all of my other 65+ sites. Boycott 1and1.

Use at your own risk and peril. They sure killed me off and I was a long time paying customer with over 65 domains with them.

This is an email that I just got from the morons at

I would like Mr. Michael Lazin of to know that he will be personally named in the lawsuit being filed against He is a total piece of work!

Wonder what they plan on doing about transferring all my domains to another registrar. I'm sure that the International Registration Authority will want to know about this ... Screws Over Longtime Customer with 66 Domains

Please excuse my bad language and negative attitude in this post. Do NOT read if bad language offends you. has screwed me again. They arbitrarily took down my website at because it was "putting too much of a load on their servers" - translation - getting too much traffic.

I told them asap that I would move the site and database off their servers (I'll also be moving all of my 65+ domains away from those scumbags), but need to have the site up to be able to do so. No action on their side.

1&1 Internet Inc. is a fricking idiot and a malicious asshole.

They took down my site without warning after I had fixed everything they asked me to. They are costing me a lot of money from my advertisers and will face certain legal action.

There are plenty of other complaints about from other people they have screwed that can be found on the Internet:

I love the title of this one:

Well, you get the idea. I'm done with hosting anything with them, but do plan to proceed with legal action - and continue to warn others about the way and Michael Lazin operate.

That's it for now - I'm off to record my new video podcast: Sucks! Look for it on YouTube and this blog.

Update: 4 hours after 1and1 took down my site and they still refuse to restore it. I have forwarded it to Eastside Entrepreneurs until I can get access to MY database and restore it to a host company which is reliable and won't be screwing me over.
