What are the different hosting plans that 1&1 offer?
1&1 provide three shared hosting plans: Basic, Unlimited and Advanced. All hosting plans can be ordered either with Linux or Windows server. If you just want a basic online presence, the Basic package is the ideal solution. If you have more advanced projects in mind, choose our Unlimited hosting package. For businesses, we recommend our Advanced package. All three hosting packages include 1 free domain name. The Basic Hosting package comes with 100 GB Webspace while the Unlimited and Advanced packages provide you with unlimited webspace. All hosting plans include dual hosting, protecting your website by storing your data simultaneously in our high-tech data centers in two separate locations.
Do I get a free domain when I register for a 1&1 Web Hosting package?
1&1 offers you a free domain web address whether you want to have a Basic, Unlimited or Advanced webhosting package. Choose your domain from a list of extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .info, .us, .biz, .co, and many more. In addition to a free domain, the Unlimited and Advanced packages also include unlimited web space and an unlimited E-mail Accounts (IMAP & POP3 Supported). If you’re not ready to select your free domain when you subscribe to a web hosting package, you can always do it later in the 1&1 Control Panel.
Can I use different web addresses on my hosting package?
Yes, you can use different web addresses for your 1&1 hosting packages. You can host as many web addresses as you like, from hosting multiple subdomains to hosting unlimited external domains. Other features include URL-Masking, domain access without the www. prefix, and DNS Management. URL-Masking is a type of domain forwarding, which automatically sends the user to the destination page without changing the URL address. A Domain Name System (DNS) is a system that translates a domain name as we know it into the computer recognized IP address form. This enables computers to communicate in their IP language. By having access and control over your DNS you can point your domain names to any static IP address or host name, use the 1&1 name servers to set your own mail servers, point your external domains to your 1&1 servers, and even transfer your external domains to 1&1 for free.
