1&1 created their own custom control panel that's intuitive and easy to navigate. We tested out the 1&1 Cloud Server and were impressed by the level of detail that went into the custom configurations. Cloud users can select independent settings for CPU, RAM, and disk, and they can adjust said settings at any time, quickly and easily. From their Cloud Panel, site owners can oversee server statuses, and manage security features. For example, they can easily control load balancers, firewall policies, and backup settings.
1&1's plans for shared hosting, website building, dedicated servers, and VPS options come in a variety of price ranges with assorted feature sets to choose from in order to meet your web hosting needs. Their packages catering to hosting newcomers, including those looking for a website builder, shared hosting, or WordPress-specific hosting, all feature discounted rates for the first year of service.
Their more advanced options, including dedicated, virtual, cloud-based, and performance-optimized servers, can be had at discounted rates for the first three or six months, depending on the contract. 1&1 Cloud Server users enjoy exclusively-SSD storage at no additional cost; customers interested in one of 1&1's other server solutions can benefit from their promotional deal: add SSD hard drives to your package, for free.
1&1 boasts supremely reliable uptime rates, with high-availability results from test portals. Their security offerings include SiteLock vulnerability scanning, DDoS protection, and 1&1's very own Content Delivery Network. In addition to top-notch security features, with premium upgrades available, 1&1 offers a Webspace Recovery feature with 6-days-worth of backups, restore points, and individual file restore options to have onhand, should disaster strike.
Review by Linda Moore from PICKUPHOST.com
I am a satisfied customer. Setup was very easy with 1&1. The price was great. The hosting plans are good since they offer 100GB web hosting for only 0.99$ the first year and 5.99$ after the first year. Furthermore; 1&1 has every feature that you could possibly need in a simple web hosting provider. However their tech support was not really helpful when I needed help with the connection problem. After all, it is a great hosting to start a website.
Review by Chris Young from PICKUPHOST.com
I am a newbie in this field. This was my first experience of website building. I found 1&1 a delightful experience and I am glad I chose it. I created my own website at their "mywebsite". Their control panel is easy to understand and use. I chose an affordable web hosting package of $5.99 a month which includes all the goodies that I need and even more. Unlimited bandwidth is a big plus point. Domain selection and registration was easy and their phone support is fantastic.
Review by Josh Quinlan from PICKUPHOST.com
I highly recommend 1&1 for their services. Their services are competitive. Their support is very responsive. Their domain features are of value and you can easily customize.

1&1 is the winner
3 out of 4 times.
As a leading hosting provider, 1&1 never shies away from putting in the time and resources they deem necessary in order to improve upon their already outstanding web services. If you're seeking a reliable and well-known hosting provider to help you build, design, and host a website, they offer expert-supported options for shared web hosting and website building.
If you're in need of a more advanced server solution, their dedicated and virtual server options offer fully-managed and self-managed plans, with optional performance enhancements, such as SSDs. Last, but most certainly not least, their new, dynamic 1&1 Cloud Server offers the ultimate flexibility at a price you can afford. "We want to deliver all the capabilities you would expect," Javier said, "then make it very easy to use and very affordable."
