FAQ - Frequently asked questions about the topic

WordPress download

  • How do I get started downloading WordPress?

    If you are asking yourself how to download WordPress, then 1&1 is here to help. We have designed our WordPress download to be as simple and intuitive as possible, easy enough for beginners to get started right away. To begin, you simply need to log in to the 1&1 Control Panel and access the app centre. From here you will be able to load the WordPress application and download WordPress. At this point you have the option of choosing the Managed WordPress installation (ideal for beginners to web design), or Free Mode installation (a more customizable option for the more experienced).

    As a next step, you will need to accept the 1&1 terms & conditions and sync your 1&1 account to WordPress. This is achieved by logging in to the administration panel and validating your WordPress credentials with your existing login details. In essence, you are finished. All that is left to do is start creating your website.
  • Once I download WordPress and get set up, what comes next?

    Once you have learnt how to download WordPress and you have the framework for your website, it is time to think about getting your all-important content uploaded. Thanks to intelligent design and intuitive workflows, WordPress makes it easy for you to create new and update existing content.
