I used to be a 1&1 customer for a few years. Their interface is very easy to use and creating domains/sub domains was very easy with their interface. The price was quite reasonable.
Unfortunately I began receiving 'service unavailable' messages. I contacted support many times over the course of that summer and received no definite answer as to why this was occurring. Finally one tech was able to give me an answer - my page was giving the Service Unavailable message due to using too many server resources. It was a simple Access database of no more than 1400 records and moderate visits daily.
I recall having one specific directory for write permissions as well (for databases) however I required other directories to have write permissions as well (eg. for image uploading). I don't know if 1&1 currently allows users to set write permissions on other folders but at the time I was limited to the one /db folder.
In the end I had to change providers and no longer have these issues (and have since upgraded to SQL).
