Anyone have any experience with a paid 1and1 account? I’m eyeballin' their dedicated servers that start @ $49/month. I’ve heard support is good fer 1and1′s paid customers and they’re toutin' full root access t' th' server, which is what I’m after I think. I just wonder if these boxes are capable o' runnin' as a “reseller” type account, with a chest full of booty. Need t' do some research and find out, but if any o' ye know o' anyone who knows someone who knows someone that has a 1and1 dedicated box, hook me up with them please.
