1and1 are not a great registrar, and this has caused is some issues in the past:
- inflexibility of renewal periods is difficult for fixed-term projects (with fixed-term budgets) that have a requirement to maintain a web presence after the project has concluded
- bad support (who recommend letting a domain expire so it can be renewed for a different length of time)
- poor interface makes updating registrations and DNS difficult and more error-prone than it should be
The following are alternative registrars we are considering:
|Name||URL||.com price||.org price||.co.uk price||.org.uk price||Multiyear renewals||DNS cost||DNS as code||review/rating||other|
|IONOS (formerly 1and1)||1and1.co.uk|
Be aware, the review option is quite anecdotal, and there is no one clear ranking. I have tried to give an idea of the average of reviews, and how frequently they occur.
