FAQ

Webspace

  • How can I access my webspace?

    You can easily upload data to your webspace via FTP. All you need is an FTP client, such as FileZilla. You can easily configure all the necessary settings using the 1&1 Control Centre.
  • What can I do with my webspace?

    Webspace from 1&1 affords you and your website a wide range of possibilities:

    One click installation
    With our Click & Build Apps you have the ability to easily install various CMS apps, such as WordPress, Drupal and TYPO3, as well as other web apps – all with just a few clicks.
    Manual installation
    What's more, you can upload and install a variety of web applications to your webspace, such as forum or blog systems. All you have to do is upload the data via FTP from your computer to your 1&1 webspace before the installation, and you can get started.

    Expert features such as PHP, MySQL databases and SFTP
    Thanks to webspace features like PHP and MySQL databases, you can set up and use dynamic web applications at any time

  • What should I look out for when selecting a webspace deal?

    Webspace is the place in which you store your data on the 1&1 server and make it available on the Internet. So when it comes to choosing the right webspace deal, you should bear in mind how you plan to use your webspace. Anyone who wants to host lots of images on their webspace will also need a certain amount of storage space. Many providers limit the amount of storage space in their deals. By contrast, 1&1 only limits the storage space in the 1&1 Starter package – meaning you can enjoy unlimited space in all our other webspace packages and not worry about running out anytime soon.
  • What advantages can 1&1 offer over other free web space providers?

    With 1&1, you get many different web hosting packages that contain many different features. By contrast, free webhosting is usually limited in its functionality and provides just a few gigabytes of space. The number of sites is also often limited, much like email storage capacities. 1&1 however, brings extensive webspace capacity for low cost.

    Whilst hosting with 1&1 is not free, most of our webspace tariffs offer unlimited storage and do not limit you on the number of projects or websites. Domains with popular extensions, such as .com or .net, and many more are available—something which free webhosting rarely offers.

    Complementary applications for content management, such as WordPress, Joomla! and others are also available with our webhosting options and can be easily setup with 1-click installation. MySQL databases can be used with our services, as well as platform independent scripting languages such as Perl, Python and Ruby. This means that all options are open to you to help make your page truly individual.

    Merchant websites offering free webspace simply cannot compete with our extensive features. With our marketing tools, you can optimize the visibility of your website and get an overview about the success of your site. The newsletter tool allows you to inform customers and partners directly. 1&1 hosting packages are also completely ad-free, something rarely offered and often annoying when using free webspace.
  • Can I try 1&1 webspace hosting for free?

    Unlike many other providers that offer free webspace, 1&1 has no free tariffs on offer. Therefore, we hope our powerful packages and professional support are enough to convince you. However, if you are still unsure as to which offer is right for you, you can use 1&1 Web Hosting for up to 6 months for free, depending upon your choice of tariff. In addition to this, we also offer a 30 day money back guarantee for all of our webhosting packages if you are not entirely happy with our services.

    Within these 30 days, you may terminate your contract at any time without justification and the money back guarantee applies to all of our web hosting packages. In fact, 1&1 is dedicated to ensuring your satisfaction. This means, you can not only try our webspace but all of 1&1's products and services for 30 days.

    Naturally, if you choose to use completely free hosting from other providers, you may face issues with obtaining expert advice on technical issues. However, with 1&1 you can simply call us and you will be connected to one of our experts who will be happy to answer your questions. This means you will be helped quickly and competently, 24 hours a day.
  • Can I protect my webspace with an SSL certificate?

    An SSL certificate ensures authenticity and integrity. With just a few clicks, you can secure your online storage space and build trust with your users. 1&1 offers low fees for SSL 256-bit encryption for the maximum protection regarding data transfers. The data is encrypted to protect against eavesdropping—encryption of the data directly to the webspace, however, does not take place.

    If you order an SSL certificate for your domain, you will be able to identify this thanks to the https in the address bar of your browser. In this case, 1&1 operates with security service GeoTrust, a company that ranks among the world's largest certifiers of SSL encryption. More information relating to the 1&1 SSL certificate is available here.
  • How much e-mail storage is included with my webspace?

    With each hosting package from 1&1, webspace for email is included. The email webspace is added additionally to your online storage for data and applications. The size of your email storage depends on the hosting plan selected. In the low-cost entry-level packages you receive 2 GB and 100 email boxes. However, with the professional packages you receive unlimited storage and webspace. Emails can be viewed either directly through your browser using 1&1 Webmail, or you can use programs such as Outlook or Thunderbird.
