I learned this the hard way... it doesn't really work very well, and lots of people were getting stuck in infinite badnav loops, which I had to manually break them out of. Not fun.

More explanation please?

Are you sure that the players did not keep on clicking links before the browser could properly load the next page or was it just spontaneous and truely caused by the hoster. If so, how did the hosting site cause players to go into badnavs?

The problem I was having with badnav loops appears, at closer inspection, to be caused by a buggy module I had installed. The bigger problem, though, was page generation times. Never below 1 second, and usually 2 seconds or more. That's why I say stay away.

EDIT: Since these issues were pre-1.1.1, I'm thinking about trying again... but this time I'll make darn well sure I test my module setup before putting it on a live server. Lesson learned.

If you post a bad (or good) rap about a host, then later discover that your information is inaccurate for whatever reason, please ensure you return and update your information regarding the host.

Even if you still recommend for or against the host, but for other reasons, those other reasons should be made known here so others don't make regretable decisions based on misinformation.

Many of the changes implemented in 1.1.1 significantly reduced the load on server resources, and could make the difference between being "no good" and "marginal suitability for testing", etc.

I've also had trouble with 1&1, but not related to Logd, they called debt collectors on me for 11.50... when the debt collectors rang me they merely said they'd pay it off and were actually laughing about the fact it was 11.50.

I've had a lot of direct experience with 1&1 & godaddy hosting LotGD.
With godaddy, LotGD worked great if you select php4x as the default on the hosting control.
With 1&1, it runs everything default as php5, but using a .htaccess file containing the command line "AddType x-mapp-php4 .php3" in the root is supposed to tell apache to run all scripts in php4.  Didn't work.  Call stack errors, bad navs galore, and they don't allow direct error log access unless you create your own error log file, which I did and it filled with 1,000's of errors in php.  I gave up on it, moved the site back to godaddy in default php4, and the site ran flawlessly once more.
Trust me, I'd rather have been able to use 1&1 since 1&1 is so much faster and generally reliable than GoDaddy, who seems to have problems with their host(s) daily timing out, slowing down intermittently, etc.

Of course not. That will only run .php3 files with the php4 engine. You'll want to add .php to the end of that.
