Likelihood to Recommend

1&1

Reasonable pricing (SSL certificate for only $30! vs the usual $99), ease of use on the backend and/or dashboard, and reliable customer service, all make this a win in my book. And, of course, you can't beat the free private registration that comes with each domain purchase. I've been recommending 1&1 to all my clients for domain purchases for years.

Network Solutions

Based on my experiences with Network Solutions, I would not recommend any of their services at this time. I know of no specific issues with domain registration, so if the cost comparison makes sense, then perhaps it would be reasonable to buy domains from them, but be beware of the introductory price and know what you'll be paying for it in the long term when you price compare.

  • They do appear to have very low INTRODUCTORY prices on many of their services.

Cons

  • I wish they'd let you use other SSL providers.

  • User interface for service management: their interfaces for DNS management especially are quite buggy, but across the board, it's clunky and outdated.
  • Support: I can't remember any good experience I've ever had with their support.
  • Reliability: I've experienced frequent issues with DNS and hosting reliability.

Alternatives Considered

Rackspace I find to be too pricey for the service they offer. Pagely is very much WordPress oriented. I've had downtime with both that I haven't experienced with 1&1.

Based on my experience to date, I would rate Network Solutions easily at the bottom of the list. I have not previously and would not select Network Solutions, but have worked with it as related to sites and clients previously set up there.

Return on Investment

  • Thanks to 1&1, I have saved money on my domain costs with the free private registration and with a very reasonably priced SSL certificate. I save at least $100 a year using 1&1

  • Poor reliability has impacted sites and services.
  • Poor support has led to wasted time and poor results.
  • Buggy interface has wasted time and caused issues.
