    An absolutely disgraceful experience. From the initial sales call where the rep had no answers for my technical questions, to the abysmal templates that they had to choose from… this company was a disaster from the start. I HIGHLY recommend that you look at other alternatives if you have a real business and it actually matters how you look to your clients online. I haven’t tried Jimdo, which is recommend here on this review, but I have tried Shopify for my parts business and I am using Setmysite for my main website which has been wonderful. Any way you slice it, just steer clear of 1 and 1. Support – Non existent. You’ll be on hold for a very long time (put the phone on speaker, put it down, turn the volume low, and take the time to get some work done or check your email – you’ll have plenty of time to kill).Design – Not even close. The templates themselves are very basic. And any attempt to modify the design results in a very poor quality look. Unless you’re a professional designer, you’ll have a hard time with this software to make it do what you have in your head. And if you’re a professional designer, you’ll already be aware to avoid this company.Hosting – No real issues with hosting to be frank. This might be where they are good. Features – It’s limiting when it comes to anything outside your very very basic needs. For instance, if you have ever used WordPress for your blog, you will instantly notice the lack of features and powers on 1 and 1.SEO – Seems basic and like what everyone else has included in their softwareLast words: Merchant Maverick does a good job of reviewing a lot of alternatives. Just use this website to find anything other than 1 and 1.

    Great article! Thank you for taking the time to share all this valuable information. I’ve been using weebly to build most of my websites. I’m going to check 1 & 1’s site builder! Cheers!

      Its Always an Upsell, Unfortunately The “NEW” Upsell (‘CONTRACT”) Doesn’t work and You have To Build From Scratch Only to Find out it Doesn’t Support Paypal Buttons, Safari Browser, Mozilla Firefox & Any Other Popular Browser??? What Good is a Website That People Cant See, Order, Sign-Up, or BUY? I had a Simple 5 “Starter” Page That Worked! They said they were canceling and I had to Move to a Higher Priced “WEBSITE BUILDER”. OK, Migration Was a Joke, No Buttons, Just Unformatted Text. Starting From Scratch Would have been Better/Easier. HTML Code Worked in “OLD” “BUILDER” Version, Now I Pay More and My Website Does Not “Work”.
