With VPN (Virtual Private Network), a secure connection is established between a local PC and your cloud servers.
Encryption is performed by using TLS (Transport Layer Security), the successor to SSL encryption. Within the Cloud Panel, you can download a corresponding VPN certificate which once installed, directly establishes a VPN connection to your cloud servers.
Firewall
Firewall
Before data reaches your server, all traffic is filtered through our central firewall within the networks of our data centers. For example, DoS attacks are quickly intercepted within the network meaning individual servers do not have to deal with any threats. The central firewall management function has been made available for this purpose within the Cloud Panel. Firewall options can be changed to suit your needs, and then simultaneously applied to single or multiple VMs.

FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE TOPIC

Cloud server from 1&1

  • What is a cloud server?

    The new 1&1 Server cloud product is a cloud hosting solution that allows companies to individually and dynamically manage IT resources (hardware and software) and align them to the scope and requirements of IT projects. This means that you can flexibly manage your website hosting options and IT resources with unparalleled precision. In fact, with our simple and intuitive hot-add resize feature, the 1&1 Cloud Server gives webmasters the freedom to increase the amount of storage, processing power and RAM via sliders – while benefittng from uninterrupted access and full functionality at all times. This means that your dynamic resources within your cloud server can grow seamlessly alongside your website – giving you ultimate control and peace of mind.

    A cloud server is particularly suitable for web projects of larger online start-ups, eCommerce or corporate applications such as intranets, CRM and ERP systems. Thanks to the combined security and performance features of the cloud server, both dynamic performance and data security are guaranteed. Security and performance are the most important elements of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provided by 1&1. These include SAN storage for increased protection, integrated and automatic backups, additional IP addresses, SSL certificates and a choice of professional anti-virus solutions depending on your preference. Together, these feature-sets combine to create a truly comprehensive cloud server suitable for a range of professional applications.
  • Who can benefit from the 1&1 Cloud Server?

    Although many medium-sized businesses have previously considered taking advantage of dynamic resources within cloud servers, until now, there has been a distinct lack of reliable services that are also easy to use. Thankfully, 1&1 now offers the very best security, reliability and simplicity for small and medium-sized businesses that are looking to get started with cloud servers in the US.Thanks to advances in cloud server technology, users now have the ability to deploy new virtual machines in 55 seconds for the fastest server setup. Alongside this, 1&1 provides the option to define private networks and create additional users with individual rights at any time – giving you and your collaborators even greater control. In addition, with the ability to share information through NFS and CIFS protocols, you can take advantage of an integrated load balancer that allows you to distribute your workload over several servers with just a few clicks. With SSD storage space, you can benefit from the latest storage technology combined with cloud server technology.
  • What is the cost of 1&1's cloud servers in the US?

    Offering the best value for money anywhere on the Internet, 1&1's cloud server options provide access to 100 GB SSD storage at $7.20 per month, 1 vCore at $7.20 per month and 1 GB RAM at $7.20 per month. However, should you only use your cloud server for 15 days, you will only be charged for that amount of time. For example, if you create a basic configuration (1 vCore, 1 GB RAM, 20 GB SSD with Linux CentOS) this would work out to $15.84 per month. If you then use this configuration for just 10 days, 20 hours and 10 minutes, you will have used approximately 33% of a 30 day month. Once the cost is broken down, you will be charged just $5.22 (33% of $15.84) at the end of the month.

    Another great feature of dynamic cloud servers is that you are free to either increase or decrease your services and capacity at any time. This ensures ultimate flexibility within your cloud server hosting package – helping you to keep down costs without compromising the functionality and accessibility of your website.
  • How long does it take to setup a virtual machine on a 1&1 Cloud Server?

    All features found within 1&1's cloud servers are ready and waiting for you to access them. These include pre-installed app templates, fully integrated backup options, advanced monitoring systems that allow you to configure and monitor all of your network resources, and full API so you can carry out any actions either through the 1&1 Cloud Panel or through your software of choice – wherever you may be. In addition to this, new virtual machines can be added in less 55 seconds through our Fast Server Deployment feature, allowing for super-quick setup times.

    In addition, as leaders within our industry, 1&1 has been at the cutting edge of Internet and cloud server technologies since 2001 – embracing innovation and excellence at every turn. 1&1 has always been committed to the very best customer service and we are happy to provide expert advice where we can.

    This means that you can count on 1&1 to help you get setup with a minimum of fuss. Rest assured, our highly knowledgeable technicians are available to take your query or question via telephone or e-mail, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – meaning that any setup issues regarding your dynamic resources within your cloud server can be dealt with immediately.
  • What features can I expect with a cloud server from 1&1?

  • What's the difference between cloud hosting and dedicated servers?

    Nowadays the two main options for hosting are the cloud or a dedicated server, both have their advantages, it simply depends on which one is better suited to your needs. Some companies choose a dedicated server because they consider it to be more secure, it is a bit like having your own personal laptop to store all your data. But unlike cloud hosting, a dedicated server comes with a fixed amount of storage space. A cheap cloud hosting provider like 1&1 offers the benefit of reducing overall expenses by storing data and information in 'the cloud', which is pay per usage. Unlike a dedicated server, a dynamic cloud server can be updated to meet your needs—if you need less storage all you have to do is reduce it, thereby reducing how much you pay. Another advantage of choosing a dynamic cloud server is that it can easily be upgraded, which is perfect for businesses who need more resources at certain times of the year.
