Terrible! This is the 2nd multiple-hour downtime we've experienced in the last 6 months. Stay away from their hosting plans!
I researched many companies for the hosting part and came across BlueHost. I am very happy that I did. Setup was a breeze of polite, knowledgeable, English speaking staff members. Learning as I went along, I had my share of mistakes. BlueHost was there to help me out and get me back on track. Very happy with my decision.
My experience with 1&1 hosting is not quite bad. The hosting uptime, features and price all make me happy, but the speed on hosting WordPress sites is not really good. I have disabled all the plug-ins, but my site also takes over 2 seconds to load the home page.
