Content Delivery
Network (CDN)
A CDN is a network of servers that are connected to each other via the Internet. Once activated for your website, the CDN stores the static content in its cache memory and makes it available at 62 data centres around the world. Visitors to your website then receive the data from the server they are physically closest to. This enables your website to load faster – no matter where the user is located worldwide.
Up to 2 GB RAM Guaranteed
Up to 2 GB RAM Guaranteed
With 'shared hosting', several customers share a server. Usually this means that only an approximate level of RAM performance is available, which is influenced by the simultaneous demands of all the websites hosted on the same server. This is not the case with 1&1 Managed WP Unlimited – this package guarantees you 2 GB of RAM at all times.

  • What is Managed WordPress hosting?

    One of the main advantages of choosing WordPress is that it doesn't require any prior knowledge of coding, such as HTML or CSS. This means that creating a professional website is simple. Once you install WordPress, a theme is then added and you can customise the site as you like. When you choose Managed WordPress hosting with 1&1, we make things even easier. In just a few clicks, our setup wizard will take you through the whole process, from start to finish. We then manage the backend of owning a WordPress website, such as speed, security, and updates.

    Managed WordPress hosting is the ideal choice for people who are just starting out on WordPress, or don't want the hassle of running a website. The themes available with managed WordPress are limited to a choice of 12 secure templates, with select plug-ins. However, if at any point you wish to explore the full potential of WordPress and switch from Managed WordPress to a standard hosted version—with 1&1, this is easy to do. It should be noted that once you have switched, it won't be possible to switch back, and the updates will be moved to you. But, whatever you decide to do, 1&1s dedicated team of experts is on hand 24/7 to answer any questions you might have.
  • How is Managed WordPress hosting with 1&1 different from WordPress?

    There is no difference between using WordPress to create a website and using 1&1; when you choose 1&1, you are guaranteed the latest version of WordPress. What is different, however, is when you choose Managed WordPress hosting, we take care of the technical side of running a WordPress site. This means that any updates or patches are automatically dealt with by us—giving you the freedom to focus on your website. Because we take care of this, the templates available with a Managed WordPress package are limited to a choice selection. However, they're fully customisable and come with a host of great plug-ins, features, and add-ons. Plus, in addition to this, you'll benefit from our powerful servers with SDD that provide superb loading times which will help boost your Google rankings. Finally, you'll also gain round the clock access to our trained support staff available by phone or e-mail 24/7.
