1&1 says they are going to remove my account after switching to Cloudflare.

If you use 1&1 as your web hosting provider and you then sign up for Cloudflare (where you then update your authoritative nameservers to point to us), you may get an e-mail from 1&1 stating they will remove your account.  To prevent 1&1 from sending you this email, 1&1 has created this article about using nameservers from another provider while hosting with 1and1.

This e-mail will look similar to the one below:

We at 1&1 Internet have noticed that you have changed the name 

server of your example.com domain. Your new settings are: 


DNS1: andy.ns.cloudflare.com 

DNS2: jill.ns.cloudflare.com 

DNS3: not set 

DNS4: not set 


Because the DNS settings with your Domain registrar and within 1&1 

as your hosting provider are different, your website hosted with 

1&1 Internet can no longer be reached via the example.com domain. 

The e-mail addresses included in your package, if any, have 

also been disabled. 


If you still intend to keep using our services, you can enter the 

following name servers with your original Domain registrar by 

January 20, 2013 at 02:09:03 AM and continue using our services as usual. 

Therefore just replace the above mentioned DNS settings with your 

Domain registrar with the following 1&1 name servers: 


DNS1: ns51.1and1.com 

DNS2: ns52.1and1.com 


If by January 20, 2013 at 02:09:03 AM you have not registered with our name 

servers, we will remove the example.com domain from our 

systems. If you want to use your domain with your 1&1 Package after 

January 20, 2013 at 02:09:03 AM, you can specify this configuration on the 

Control Panel once more and enter the name servers specified there 

with your registrar. 


If you want to keep the current name server settings, please make 

sure that you are using the same Name Servers at the 1&1 Administration 

as you use with your original Domain registrar."
