1and1 Hosting Introduction
I think as long as you're dealing with hosting solutions you should have heard of the name – 1and1. Yes, 1and1 is the largest hosting provider in Europe and the ony hosting company who can offer both windows and linux hosting for the same price.
1&1 was founded as a reseller of technology products, including an early online service, in 1988 by Ralph Dommermuth (now CEO of United Internet, the public parent company of 1&1, and CMO of 1&1).
Today, Robert Hoffmann has succeeded the former CEO Oliver Mauss to be the new CEO of 1&1 Internet Inc.,

From editor's review, 1&1 is not recommended hosting for decent service and support. They keep customer by offering free domains and will not give you opportunity to move out. If you're considering signing up their service, it's not suggest use their free domain or simply select another provider such as ipage or webhostinghub etc for quality services.
