My 1&1 Account Has Been Down For Days

I’m now into day 2 of my account over at 1&1 being down. Their estimates for recovery keep going up, from 4 hours, to 12 hours and today they say it will be two more days. Luckily, I don’t trust my main site, www.leonatkinson.com, to them. I leonatkinson.com with he.net and I might have had a couple of hours of downtime in the 10 years I’ve been with them.

I have all my emptyz.com stuff with 1&1, and that means a couple of my Facebook apps are down. Plus, I stuck some client work on the server last week. It’s a huge drag to have that stuff unavailable for two more days.

I suspect this is an isolated event, unlike the widespread outage from a couple of years ago that made it to Digg. I can’t find anyone else talking about it. Anyway, it seems like a good time switch providers.

    Our 1and1 website has also been down now for 2 days. We have not been able to get anyone in wherever their “help” center is to give any time estimate. Very frustrating. You are correct that it is a great time to switch providers. Any suggestions on providers or tips on how to talk to a person who knows something about what’s going on at 1and1, let me know.

    Thanks,

    Ray
