    Just a note for people considering a cheap hosting. I use them for a minor site that I don't want to spend much on and they do well but, you can only have one database, you can't reassign domain names and they charge you for a domain name fee even if you don't transfer over your domain name.

    These are all things that they don't tell you about up front. As I say, for my play site it isn't an issue as it is still cheap and has good up-time but they do have surprises that aren't a very ethical way to do business.

    At the time when I signed up, there wasn't a notice that the domain fee was extra. Even now one has to be careful because NONE of their advertised pricing adds that fee in and there isn't anything that tells you that that fee isn't included.

    They were the first web host I ever tried, 11 years ago. They sucked then, too.

    What sucks is that they charge $12 to change emails (if your selling your domain)

    oneandone.com is good
    one.com is bad.

    This is not new if you read reviews. ;)
