1and1.com has screwed me again. They arbitrarily took down my website at EastsideBusinessJournal.com 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 1and1.com 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 1and1.com and Michael Lazin operate.
That's it for now - I'm off to record my new video podcast: 1and1.com 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.
