    Lunarpages, better than 1&1?

    Hello,
    I've had a bad time with Godaddy and I'm switching hosts and registering a couple of domains. I've essentially narrowed down the possibilities to Lunarpages and 1&1. I'd like to know which is the best bang for my buck.
    At first glance, Lunarpages does look best. I've seen rant and rave reviews of both, but none from sites like CF, which I know and trust.
    Please, only current or former customers post a review. It sounds obvious but you'd be surprised.

    Thanks in advance

    I've been with Lunarpages before and can tell you that I really did like their service. I moved away from them because I wasn't too fond of the additional costs associated with their VPS plan. You will find a lot of "rave" Lunarpages reviews because of their affiliate program. But from my experience, they are a good company and are worth doing business with.

    I've read a lot of complaints about 1&1. However, you also have to look at the sheer size of this company. 1&1 is HUGE. So there is no doubt that you will find more complaints written about them just by the volume of customers that they have.

    No problems yet. Theyre not that big, but its easy to get support.

    Dream host is a huge overseller. Oversellers aren't that good.
    Not much, but its something.

    1&1 is probably one of the best I have ever seen or used. The only reason I switched is because I am on a tight budget, and found something cheaper. A friend of mine really pushes the domain service. I really thought that the customer service was good. The is just my thoughts about it.

    P.S. I am currently with their domain service.

    I am currently hosting my website with 1&1, and I can definitely tell you it's the best web hosting service I have ever had. Not only are the packages excellent, but their customer service is quick and responsive. So far I haven't had any server-down problems. I strongly recommend it.

    I also suggest 1&1. Before they started accepting clients, I got in on a free 3 or 4 year pro package and I never had an issue with them.

    I use united hosting (I have a reseller account). They're more expensive than many, but they're very responsive and helpful when I need a little bit of back-end tweaking done (so to speak). It's sometimes tempting to go for the cheapest option, but often you don't get the support you need. In my case, I run my businesses through my websites, so if they go down, I have no revenue - so it's more important for me to have a reliable, well supported service.

    Also with United Hosting on a reseller account. Have been for years now. Very good customer support and good server uptime too.
