NEVER Use 1and1 to Register Domains or Host Your Websites No Matter What Google Says

Today I was looking at some documentation from Google about using a custom domain name to link to a Blogger blog.  I almost puked ...

They said that the first step was to buy a custom domain.  OK so far - I already have too many ...  Then came the kick in the stomach - they gave some options as far as domain registrars to use - and had the short-sightedness to include as an option.  (They also included GoDaddy which also sucks, but don't get me started on that).

PLEASE for your own sake, do not take Google's advice on this.  If you do use (or GoDaddy) you are doing so at your own risk - and peril.

  1. Thank you for sharing your experience. I never try 1and1 hosting services. But for domain, I'm quite shocked that you have also bad experience with godaddy. I use godaddy as my domain registrar. For hosting, I also wouldnt recommend them. But, for domain registrar, they are OK for me, the control panel is also great. For hosting, you may try I've been using them for almost 10 months and they are good. :)
