Just found that Dan Cameron had a horrible experience with 1and1 couple of months back. It happened to me also 6 months back with 1and1 and they charged me some xtra money even after i faxed the cancellation form after visiting cancel.1and1.com. I even lost my domain obharath.com after 1 year because of those stupid guys at 1and1. I too like Dan believe that they have done this purposefully. They dont even bother to reply me abt my domain but they send me emails asking Satisfied with our service?. HaHa , forget abt satisfaction, i strongly recommend users of 1and1 to cancel their services immediately. 1and1 is one of the the worst hosting companies.
Now i bought this new domain again. I run my blog on one of my friends servers and so far i didnt have any problems.
