Comments on: 1and1 Corporate Headquarters Phone Number http://www.robarspages.ca/web-hosting/1and1-corporate-headquarters-phone-number/ A technology blog about classic ASP and vbScript from the east coast Fri, 11 Sep 2015 21:14:54 +0000 hourly 1 By: mike http://www.robarspages.ca/web-hosting/1and1-corporate-headquarters-phone-number/#comment-4258 mike Fri, 11 Sep 2015 21:14:54 +0000 http://www.robarspages.ca/?p=3#comment-4258 Just wanted to keep this content fresh with a quick update.

I’ve been a 1and1 “major customer” (over 500 domains), since 2007/2008

They are one of the WORST COMPANIES on the earth.

I absolutely HATE dealing with them.

They are a complete and TOTAL RIP OFF.

Cumulatively, I have spent at least 1,000 hours on the phone with them and have records of 600+ emails back and forth.

I can tell you their billing practices are SLOPPY at best, deceptive, intentionally complex and wrought with errors and overcharges.

Then, they just LOVE sending accounts to “collections agencies” even if YOU’RE CURRENT with them!

Not to mention, their website, ironically, is clumsy, S—L—O—-W and very very very often crashes on me when I’m trying to update my settings, check on invoices etc.

I have experienced the same situation others mentioned here on this blog site. Two of my domains are held up for “locked by billing issues”, described as “blackmail” here…
I have reached several representatives in sales and customer service by my attempts to reach the names listed above at their corporate office. I was told that AnnMarie Tropiano is their “big boss” in Chesterbrook, PA, so I will try emailing her since reaching the corporate office is nearly impossible.
I say nearly because this would be the first company that I have not been able to reach an executive at… yet…
Their CEO is listed under Wikipedia as Oliver Mauss.
LinkedIn has 3 individuals listed under Oliver Mauss, but the top result does indicate location, affiliation, and education in Germany in the field of internet-related enterprises.
The only company with a similar name to United Internet, apparent parent owner of 1and1, shows him as a non-executive board member of “united-domains-AG”…

My plan was to switch my 2 domains to domain only and try their new “MyWebsite” offer on another…
We shall see where this leads to…

I see that you’re the latest to post a comment here, any news on your issue? could you share the emails of both VPs you have?

I am having loads of trouble with 1&1.
it started with me wanting to cancel my hosting but keep my Domain Names. I contacted support, and I was pointed to the cancellation website cancel.1and1.com

I went through the procedure, to discover later that all my Domain Names disappeared. When I called the support, I was told I should have downgraded my package instead of cancelling it. I explained that they, them selves so called technical support, advised me to go through the cancellation website. Any way, they assured me to retrieve all my Domain Names. a few days later, and after several email, and phone calls, I was told to be patient! then I received an email with my Domain Names, and transfer codes. When I rang back to say that I cannot transfer the domains because my account is deleted, they asked me to open a new free package that is Instant Domain. I went through all the steps they provided, and there was no way to get this free package. You have to buy a new domain name to avail of the free package. Which I did!!!!
I then called to have my domains transferred to the new package, and they talked me through doing it. When I started the first transfer, I was asked on the screen to agree to a $9.99 transfer fee. When I asked the agent (his name is Nick) what’s that about, and that I will not be paying that, he assured me that this fee doesn’t apply in my case. I reiterated the question, and again he assured me that I wont be charged for that! And guess what!!! 3 days later I receive a bill of over $380 for domain transfers.

I since was dealing with their billing and complaints departments, and I can’t get any where. They are insisting on me paying the bill, even though it’s their fault that I was dragged into these muddy waters.

If anyone can help with an email address or a phone number, I would much appreciate it!

Thanks,
Riki

I worked on my site for hundreds of hours, doing photoshop work, uploading hundreds of images etc. As I was about to be done designing my site and happy to be done with hundreds of hours of work, everything just disappeared!!!! I called tech support wondering what happened. They told me they were switching servers and they lost all my work. I couldnt believe it.

I spoke with a tech support supervisor named Ian Morris and he assured me that this was all 1&1′s fault and I would be given “at least a year of free service. I was also told IAN or someone else would fix my site for me if I just send them all my info and photos. Ian told me he’d get back to me and he gave me his personal e-mail address. He told me by the end of the day my site would be restored to where it was when I was finished with all my hard work.

A day went by and no call, no e-mail, and no site fix. I called again and talked to ian, he assured me this will be taken care of by the end of the day. Again, no call, no e-mail, no site fix.

I called AGAIN the next day and talked to another tech rep named Adrian who told me “I’ll work on the site for you like it’s my own” “i’ll get back to you at 5:00 est to let you know the progress I’ve made” Of course, no call. This has been going on for 8 straight days and enough is enough already. It is absolutely impossible at this point to get in touch with ANY of the supervisors over there. It’s almost like trying to get in touch with the President of the USA. I keep getting transferred, put on hold, told the supervisors are busy and I have to hold another 15 minutes etc. I’ve never been treated this way by any company in my 43 years of living. It’s one thing to have someone tell me, “nope, we cant help you” and another thing to be told for 7 or 8 days “we can help you, and we will help you immediately” and then have nothing get done. I don’t enjoy being LIED to.

I’ve never even so much as asked to talk to a manager at a restaurant because I was unhappy for whatever reason, but this is absolutely ridiculous. I’m paying for services that these people arent even giving me and they plain and simply dont care. I’ve e-mails two VP’s today and I bet I get no response whatsoever. Worst experience of my life regarding another company and how they’re treating me.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WITH EVERYONES COMPLAINTS AND IF ANYTHING IS BEING DONE ABOUT THIS!!!

If anyone actually talks to a high level manager at this company, and that manager actually helps them, please post their phone number on this forum.

Todd

Who, exactly is sponsoring that form? Is it 1 and 1 themselves in order to keep a real suit from moving forward???

Until there is more disclosure, file complaints at both the PA Attorney Generals office at: http://www.attorneygeneral.gov/consumers.aspx?id=451; and at the Better Business Bureau, at https://www.bbb.org/consumer-complaints/file-a-complaint/get-started.

Then take a look at the BBB’s rating they give 1&1, a B! My Question, how can they give a company with 806 closed complaints a B rating?

Please file the complaints, as I will be contacting the local DC media regarding the BBB’s rating of them, will make a good investigative journalism piece.

The PA’s Office Of Attorney General will respond before the BBB, but hang in there as the BBB will have some explaining to do.

As a longtime 1and1 customer, I expected more help with a issue I just encountered. On Wednesday I discovered that one of my email boxes (the most important one) had not received incoming mail since Monday. My other email boxes worked just fine and I sent an email from one of them as a test. Not only was it not received, but it never bounced back as undeliverable.
I called 1and1′s customer service center. On the positive side, I did not have a long wait. I explained the issue to the service rep who went to my mailbox and was unsure of the issue. I specifically told her that for the first time I used the spam mail filter and asked if that could have caused the problem. She emphatically said no. She told me she would do something and to wait and hour.
The next day I went to the mailbox and nothing had been fixed. So once again I called customer service and gave this representative the case number. He said there was nothing he could do as “it was sent to administration”. I asked what that meant, and he only repeated that it was with administration to fix and they would notify me. When I asked how long this would take, he had no idea.
I was not satisfied with these responses, so I took it upon myself to eliminate all of the emails I had placed in the spam filter. What do you know! Once I did that I began receiving emails again! It would have saved me a great deal of grief, not to mention some important business related emails if the first representative had some idea what she was talking about.
By the way, I have yet to receive any news from “administration”. And as I test, I entered one email address to the span filter and guess what? Even just one blocked all my incoming emails to that box.
As I first said, I am extremely disappointed with 1and1!

For the last two weeks I have been dealing with support, transfers and customer service individuals. They have escalated my concerns and to date, the only escalation has been my blood pressure. All 14 days have been spent trying to get an authorization code to simply release me from this hosting provider. Without question, the most time consuming and horrible experience I have had professionally. I will make it a point to share my experience with everyone so that no one has to experience the same.

BUT there is a “bug” in their DNS protocol which prevents the issue from closing, therefore no other changes can be made (wanted to do a name server change and get further away from these people). Daily calls to support have proven worthless, “escalations” have done nothing. And whicl I wait for another week to pass I am losing money on my ecommerce site since I can’t transfer it. What a HORRIBLE company. Poor English, support by menu, refuses to refer to supervisor, doesnt answer any emails, etc. I can;t say how miserable their customer service is – it is NOT a bargain to be stuck with these people.

They sent me an invoice 2 months ago. I immediately replied from the same email address telling them it’s not my charges and they need to cancel the service and issue me the credit. 2 months later, I am still calling them; sending them emails and nothing has been resolved. Their customer service people have been rude and hung up on my several times. I talked to Michael in their fraud department who was rude and very unhelpful. I talked to Victoria who hung up on me.
With all the guarantees on their websites, they are still big fraud. I would never recommend them. As the matter of fact, anyone who is reading this should think twice before opening an account with these crooks.

During one of my countless conversations with a Cust. Rep., someone disclosed to me that the Parent company is German(y)-based. This could speak to their total disregard for the BBB or FTC.
I hope this is helpful and that the Parent company has simply been unaware of the disasterous way someone else has been conducting business in the USA; And makes major changes, i.e., New USA Tech Support Team.
I have included my phone number to be counted as a witness (I mean victim) to the many business scam of 1&1.com.

They always do this and we have to remember to email them to credit it. but this last time they are claiming that the domain was not transferred before the due date which I believe is wrong per the registrar details.

So we decided to dispute the charge with the credit card company (VISA) on September 7th. So today we received a blackmail email from 1and1 that if we dont sign a form they attached to authorize the original charge of $17.98 plus an additional $20 charge back fee they will lock our account and I guess take over all of our domains. As of now we don’t have access to any of the domains.

I called Bank of America VISA they said they have never heard of a business doing this sort of blackmail but could not advise me what to do and told me to seek a lawyer instead.

After doing some research I was told to make a complaint with ICANN and we did, so we are waiting for a reply back.

Please let me know if this is legal and/or the right way of handling this situation.

If anyone reading this is a lawyer and want’s to get involved please get a hold of us by this form: http://www.aatechdesign.com/contact.html

Any other ideas you might have would be appreciated.

What has to happen, I think, is an attorney general inquiry must be done on 1and1 billing practices, and what I feel is false/misleading marketing 1&1 corporate headquarters marketing team.

I hope that whole company goes bankrupt, If I lived in the states I would drive to corporate just to show them a piece of my mind. I own a fair sized company and 50 bucks… who cares!

At least that is what “Steven” their tech support guy said after waiting 48 minutes to get a straight answer. Results: Excuses, waste of my time and noting done.

Everytime I call, I get someone who doesn’t speak English as their first language. They don’t listen to the problem, they just start offering useless advice from their script book (“clear your cookies”, “reboot your computer”, etc.) Their e-mail support is just as bad. Their replies are riddled with poor grammar and useless advise. If you have a continuing problem, they just stick their head in the sand and ignore you. After about the second time, the just quit replying. In one instance I got a reply that said “that’s a problem with Web Site Builder that can’t be fixed.” Can’t be fixed? If I’m paying for it, I expect it to work right. Guess it’s time to change to Go Daddy. I would NEVER recommend 1&1 to anyone.

I first called to verify DNS settings for our server upgrade over 10 days. I asked to speak with someone on a higher level of support and who spoke English I could understand. The person I spoke with said they could handle it. 5 Days later, the net is still pointing to the old server. Meanwhile we are incurring fees from HostGator for having two dedicated servers, because dealing with dOne & dOne, our billing period had lapsed. We call 4 days ago, I’m told that what we were told on the first call was wrong….again I asked to speak to someone who I could understand….I call again the next day, I want to verify what I was told the day before was accurate and done properly…AGAIN…I’m on the phone with someone who “donta speaka no english” at least English which is comprehensible to the rest of us.

I write a flaming letter to their so called support, get a reply with all this “we’re going to get to the bottom of this” blah…blah. I just now issued an ultimatum, that if we don’t get an adequate response today by 3pm…we are filing a complaint with ICANN, but many of you above have suggested some other good organizations with which to file complaints.

Truthfully, I think I much prefer to use my skills in SEO and Internet marketing to make sure anyone thinking of doing business with them hears about out stories first.

To anyone considering using 1&1 Hosting/1and1 Hosting/ One and One Hosting/ (good you’ve found us here) DONT! They have English speaking sales people, but once they get your contract, you will deal with a tech support team who reads a script and barely speaks English.

I have experienced multiple issues with this company, including bad technical support, off-shore non-native English speakers, repeted issues with the site, and when I wanted to cancel service have now been told I somehow was auto-renewed for another 2 years and can’t get out of the contract…AND, to make matters worse (and believe me I am now going to friends at Wired magazine to sort this out since they wrote the original article that got me to try the service, they refuse to transfer my paid for owned domain name which I originally registered through another company and only pointed toward their site hosting service, which they then took over and now are insisting that they will not transfer the domain unless I sign another contract with them for the domain registrations. In effect they are trying to hold this dimain name hostage. I have started reading articles to the effect that they are “stealing domain names” and THIS I will not tolerate because it is in essence blackmail and I do not believe this is legal.
SO…I AM going to now lodge a complaint with Consumer Reports and the FTC, I AM going to both Wired Magazine and Boing-Boing contatcs and I AM working ym way up the food chain through corporate research and sources to get to the top person there. I urge every one of you to get a hold of Consumer Reports and issue a complain and also with the FTC.
The more people who speak out, the better chance to stop others from this type of extortion.
