Does 1&1 also offer WordPress Business Hosting packages?

Do companies receive a domain for their business websites?
When you choose to use the business web hosting provided by 1&1, you will get premium service and top performance. Depending on which package you choose, you can establish multiple domains. You have a choice between classic top level domains (TLDs), like .com, .org, .info, or .eu, and the new TLDs, such as .california, .chicago or .online, and many more. With business hosting from 1&1 you will be able to find just the right domain for your company website. What's more, the new top level domains allow you to tailor your web address to suit your business perfectly. Do you work in real estate? Make that immediately obvious to potential clients by choosing the .realestate domain. The .business domain, on the other hand, explicitly states that your website is a business website, and a domain name that references a location lets your clients know where exactly you offer your services, whether that is .chicago, .california, or a different location entirely.
Is an e-mail address included in the 1&1 web hosting offers?
The e-mail address that corresponds to your domain is included in all package options of the 1&1 business hosting package. Depending on which package you choose, the number of e-mail inboxes and the size of the memory of your inbox vary. In addition, many package options also include automatic e-mail forwarding to pre-existing addresses, the use of 1&1 Webmailer 2.0 (giving you worldwide access to you e-mail inbox via a browser), and the 1&1 Antiphishing and Anti-Spam protection.
If you are looking for a professional e-mailing solution that allows you to efficiently manage your data and communication, you can opt for corporate e-mail packages. With a wide range of additional features for your address book, calendar, and to help you manage your tasks and documents, 1&1 Business Mail is the ideal solution to oversee your appointments, projects and teams, as well as optimize your external communication.
Does 1&1 have specific business templates for corporate clients?
If you choose 1&1 Business Hosting for your web project, you have a variety of templates, features, plug-ins, widgets, content management systems, and a website construction kit at your disposal. This allows you to individually design your company website and make sure it is targeted towards your needs and industry.

They work equally well for purely informative websites, 1&1 Easy-Shops, or other websites with built in online shops.
