FAQ

Linux Hosting

  • What are the advantages of Linux web hosting and why should I use it?

    Both Linux and Windows have proven to be a powerful basis for creating large websites. Each operating system offers all the basic functions required to run your website. In principle, numerous open source applications are available in order to get the best of Linux and certain features like MyWebsite or the Click & Build app are only available to Linux web hosting users. Linux is also particularly suitable for PHP, Perl or MySQL. Our top PHP features – including several stable versions, extended support, and OpCache – are currently only available in the 1&1 Linux packages. Additionally, you can also use Linux web hosting if you have a Windows operating system already installed on your home computer or laptop. External servers and your end devices can all be connected easily to one another.
  • What web hosting services do 1&1 offer me?

    As one of the top web hosting providers, 1&1 caters to all your website requirements. From start to finish, 1&1 can help you build, manage, and host your website at competitive prices. With the 1&1 domain checker you can register your domain and instantly choose a web hosting package. You can also choose to build your own website quickly and easily with a website builder package, which includes web hosting. High tech data centres and fast, secure servers ensure reliable operations and maximum availability at all times. Whatever your needs, 1&1 has the solution to make your online presence a success.
  • What's the difference between Linux and Windows hosting?

    Windows and Linux are two very different types of operating systems – each with unique advantages. Both Linux and Windows formats will work on any PC regardless of the operating system in use. However, each technology has its own distinctive characteristics. Linux web hosting is ideal if you are using PHP, MySQL or Perl programming languages, or if your website displays information in brochure, newsletter or data sheet formats. In contrast, Windows offers Windows-specific technologies such as ASP, .NET and Microsoft Access. There are also various advantages if you plan to integrate Windows-based applications or searchable databases within your website. If you aim to use out-of-the box solutions for powering content management systems or blogs, bear in mind that there are generally more open source applications available for Linux web hosting, whereas Windows licensed solutions will likely incur costs.
  • Will my website be hosted on a secure and reliable server?

    To protect your data there are a number of security options available within 1&1's web hosting packages. One option is to subscribe to Secure Socket Layer (SSL) services to enable encrypted data transfers. An SSL certification provides security for both you and your website visitors when exchanging data. 1&1 also offers SiteLock, a comprehensive security package with features such as search engine blacklist monitoring, file change monitoring, malware scanning, and vulnerability scans for your website's applications. SiteLock also comes complete with SSL verification, which checks whether your SSL certificate is compatible with the web browser requirements. 1&1 offers SiteLock at an unbeatable price – compare our prices with the manufacturer price and see for yourself!
  • Which Linux distribution is used for hosting?

    We use the Debian Linux distribution for our web hosting. Debian is a flexible and beginner-friendly operating system with minimal system requirements that includes a diverse array of applications and utility programs. Debian has been continuously evolving since 1996 and the extensively tested OS (operating system) can now be installed on every modern Linux server. The Debian Linux hosting package from 1&1 delivers a reliable and safe software base for all your content and websites.
  • Can I choose/change the Linux distribution?

    No, as a customer you do not have direct access to the operating system of the server. In the shop you can opt either for the current Linux or the current Windows version. Use our handy comparison Linux vs. Windows to determine which of these two operating systems and their specific features and advantages best meet your hosting needs. Whichever operating system you decide on, we ensure that the latest version of Linux or Windows is always available to you. You profit from increased safety and are free to concentrate on what is important: your website and its content.
  • Can I change operating system later on?

    You can change the operating system of your server from Linux to Windows or Windows to Linux at any time by changing your package. To swap operating systems, just visit our customer shop. You can then easily migrate your website and content from a Linux server to a Windows server or vice versa.
  • Can I change my Linux hostname and how?

    Yes, it is possible to change your Linux web hosting name. There are two ways to do this: a temporary change of name that will revert back to the original name upon reboot, or a permanent change of name.

    For a temporary name change, open a terminal window and type the command 'hostname' without any parameter, the current hostname will appear. In order to change it, simply type 'NEW_HOSTNAME'. Replace 'NEW_HOSTNAME' with your desired Linux web hosting name.

    For a permanent name change, most of the latest versions of Linux distributions (Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, Fedora, RedHat, etc.) function best with the 'systemd' system and service manager. Simply use the 'sudo hostnamectl set-hostname NEW_HOSTNAME' command.
  • Can I use different web addresses on my hosting package?

    Yes, you can use different web addresses for your 1&1 hosting packages. You can host as many web addresses as you like, from hosting multiple subdomains to hosting unlimited external domains. Other features include URL-Masking, domain access without the www. prefix, and DNS Management. URL-Masking is a type of domain forwarding, which automatically sends the user to the destination page without changing the URL address. A Domain Name System (DNS) is a system that translates a domain name as we know it into the computer recognized IP address form. This enables computers to communicate in their IP language. By having access and control over your DNS you can point your domain names to any static IP address or host name, use the 1&1 name servers to set your own mail servers, point your external domains to your 1&1 servers, and even transfer your external domains to 1&1 for free.
  • I want to build a website based on WordPress. Can I host it on 1&1?

    Yes, you can host your WordPress website on 1&1! All 1&1 web hosting packages provide the necessary processing power and memory capacity for your WordPress websites. The 1&1 Linux servers support the PHP and MySQL technical standards required to run WordPress. Our affordable web hosting packages are also customized for WordPress project requirements. If your project grows and you need more web space, you can easily order it. Besides all the features that WordPress already has to offer, 1&1 will provide you with a selection of Click & Build options which are easy to implement in order to improve your website.
  • Do I need prior knowledge of Linux?

    No, as a customer you do not need any knowledge of the operating system of your server, which is a complex, closed system that you do not have direct access to. Instead, we will do all the required technical and administrative maintenance, security, back-up and updating work for you, so the full scope and functionality of your 1&1 webhosting package is always available to you. All other relevant work, like integrating your content, installing sub-domains or creating e-mail addresses can be done easily via a special management interface, without having to work directly with the operating system.
