1&1 Hosting Plans
Like other hosting companies out there, this company offers their clients different website hosting plans which are Linux and Windows based. Their basic package starts from as low as $1.99 per month while their other plans can go as high as $14.99 per month. Of course, these plans will have different space allocations and bandwidth allowances.
They do not advertise the uptime of their servers on their website. A minus point for those looking for a reliable service with the lowest downtime possible. Although this is true, it is worthy to note that they maintain two locations and all files from one server is backed up on a different location to ensure that these files are still accessible during a power outage or any type of cyber attacks.
This hosting company offer different support facilities for their customers. In different countries where they operate on, they provide either an email address or a phone number for their customers to send their queries to. Because this company operates in different countries, the contact information of their support will vary from country to country.
Unlike other hosting companies out there, this company does not offer the common cPanel account administration console. They use what they call Plesk. Plesk is a custom account console where customers can edit their account information and website.
Some of the extras new customer can expect include easy website CRM installation, free advertising credits.
1&1 Money Back Guarantee and Cancellation Policy
They offer a 60 day money back guarantee. This guarantee only apply on shared hosting accounts and does not cover domain name registration.
The web hosting services offered by this company is probably one of the most competitive in the market today. However, it is advisable for those who are planning on setting up an e-commerce or other websites that will have a large number of visitors to try a dedicated server hosting instead.
