The 1&1 Hosting company again one of the leading Web hosting providers. It is the most prolific web hosting provider with the widest range of hosting products. They have established in 10 different countries including Germany, Spain, Great Britain and the United States of America. It’s not the company which gives you the most affordable service but you will certainly have a service with top quality.
All these are fine what actually matters is what it offers…

- Free daily backups
- Unlimited traffic, emails, DBs
- WordPress integration
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Wide range of web hosting products
- User experience- not so great
- Backend Setup
there are companies with better speed too in the market
- Customer Service
not the best, could be improved
I can’t just blindly recommend 1&1 to anyone. It certainly has many features which make it stand apart but the naively positive user experiences are not acceptable. All the wide range of products and services it provides are pretty impressive and even the price is not so high but still, you will find mixed reviews on the net. It could be the one with easy email setups, domain transfers, WordPress hosting etc.
