"Hasn't Failed me Yet"

What do you like best?

1and1 (IONOS) - has been continually updating and improving their system since I began using it. They have been my host for 12 years now - in turn, they give credit for loyalty.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes that changes are not announced soon enough for one to get the details and for technical documents to be written explaining the changes - therefore many of the "how-to" documents that you can find to clarify things are out=-dated and have images of the previous cPanel interface.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are seeking a hosting company that will work with you and that will give you the freedom to develop web work, then 1&1 is certainly for you. The opportunity to host multiple site, unlimited space, and high-speed connectivity are only a few of their many offers. This hosting company is very reasonable in pricing -particularly for the amount of power the user is given.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a web designer, a teacher of web design, and host my own site on 1&1. The benefit of staying with 1&1 has been their service, which has been impressive, the capabilities on the servers' support, and the growth I personally have seen in 1&1 as a hosting company. The problems they solve are plentiful; #1 - They offer a reasonable price for my students to sign up and learn to publish their work and #2 - I have a place where I can host other domains that are my clients, and have a place to send my clients.

"Good experience for a amateur!"

What do you like best?

1&1 MyWebsite is a great program to utilize for amateur website designers. I wanted to create a new website design for my husbands acting portfolio, and this was an easy tool. Very self-explanatory, good templates, etc.

What do you dislike?

It is not extremely customizable unless you know coding or HTML. As a newbie, I basically need to stick with the templates.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it out. It is only $1/month for the basic subscription - can't get much cheaper than that!! Some of the other web hosting sites are much more expensive. I am sure they have more capabilities and features, but for this price you cannot beat it. Definitely will recommend to others in our industry!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great monthly subscription fees for a low-cost website, we are getting good SEO traction and see a positive ROI on this website portal.

"Pretty easy to use"

What do you like best?

In the time I had my site on 1and1 My Website (now IONOS) it was functional and fast. It was a great builder for someone who doesn't know code. Super easy to pick a theme and then change it up to be what you want it to be.

What do you dislike?

The blog function. It was incredibly antiquated and it was just one long running page of blog posts, rather than each post getting it's own page. I ended up moving over to Managed WP Hosting with the same company.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is perfect if you need a site up and running quickly. I would suggest exploring other 1and1 (IONOS) options, however.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are huge benefits to using this product. You don't have to know code to have an awesome website.

"The Cheapest Most Professional Web Hosting Services"

What do you like best?

The pricing is amazing and no one competes with 1&1 (now IONOS) on this field. The customer support (technical) is highly knowledgeable and most intelligent. They did the extra mile and intervened with my authorization to fix an issue I was having with SSL. I loved this dedication and support.

What do you dislike?

The KYC process for opening an account takes too long: +72 hours. Not ideal for important, fast deployments.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend without hesitation. Try them now. They are great.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A professional online presence at the most affordable cost.

"Difficult Interface"

What do you like best?

Communication with customer service/support was thorough, but I still had immense difficulty with manipulating this software.

What do you dislike?

Dislike that this software is not ideal for those who are beginners at web design, yet advertises itself like it is.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Have tiers of pricing and features, more ease of use, offer tutorials and help when it is needed. Listen to customer suggestions! If you made your user interface more similar to that of Squarespace, Wordpress, Webs, Weebly, et cetera, more people would use the service. The service is very minimal and bare bones.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving the problem of having a host for my domain name; have realized that I could take full advantage of services offered if I had a tutorial on how to use.

"I support it!"

What do you like best?

I do love the fact that it can hit a big audience. Businesses don’t often speak one language so it is nice to have a multilingual translator built in. I like that they have a support hotline for any issues or concerns.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about this product is the fact that there is no free trial version. Although they offer a money back guarantee... I’d rather have the option to try the product for a few days before making a decision like that.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am simply using the product to create a website with ease. I love the fact that this product can create templates, but also allow me to modify easily. They aren’t looking to advertise themselves either because you can click their names off right away in the bottom corner. This product is easy to use once you get past all the options they offer.

"1&1 is low quality service"

What do you like best?

The only attractive trait 1&1 has going for it is cheap domains. I grabbed about 20 domains in a heartbeat that I simply use to redirect traffic to my main site.

What do you dislike?

When you buy cheap, you get cheap. 1&1 knows they are a lower tier service, so they conduct themselves as such. They are a no-frills offering. Even Godaddy has better basic tools on their site.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Look at the ease of setting up a Wix site.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When you have a startup, it's key to make a dollar stretch Being able to secure online real estate for a low price is a big deal, and is worth exploring with 1&1.

"Seamless migration of site and domain "

What do you like best?

I switched to 1&1 for my domain name and saved tons of money, so I tried this website builder as well for my family business. It was intuitive, had good help where things weren't clear, and is very affordable.

What do you dislike?

I don't think this is as useful for my mother, who owns the company, as more structured, business-specific website builders. It's more for proficient website makers than beginners.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was able to entirely switch over my web host and domain, but integrate my old blog that I like while still including it in navigation. It's helped save costs and only opt in to what I need.

"Mostly easy to get started, full service"

What do you like best?

It was quite easy to get started linking up a domain to 1&1, and their customer support was quick to respond to my questions (as a beginner I had a lot).

What do you dislike?

You have to have some technical knowledge of the website building, it is not meant for entry-level users.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would do some research among other competitors first in terms of ease of use, but 1&1 was great overall for price and customer service.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Making a website, hosting, relatively inexpensive and worldwide service.

"Great for simple website setups but no replacement for a real CMS"

What do you like best?

The simplicity and how quick you can get a website up and running. The great thing about it is the abundance of already great templates you can use for a fast turnaround.

What do you dislike?

The lack of advanced HTML editing capabilities and the fact that you can't use sophisticated Website building features that other CMS tools have.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Offer advanced editing features

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simple website building and quick launch with little or no budget for a real CMS. The price factor involved with this tool is definitely a plus!

"Easy way to get an online presence"

What do you like best?

The website program (mywebsite) is very easy to use and navigate. It allows you to add many different types of context and gives some suggestions.

What do you dislike?

The main thing I dislike is that it limits how many pages or features you can use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem we are solving is giving my dad's auto repair shop a web presence. More people are coming in and saying they found him on the web or presenting the coupons we have posted.

"1&1 IONOS MyWebsite: Affordable Turnkey Solution"

What do you like best?

The best part about 1&1 IONOS MyWebsite is the low cost and nice selection of template to get you started.

What do you dislike?

I honestly haven't found anything to dislike about the service.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you don't have a designer as a resource, you can try the MyWebsite Design Service, it's decent.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used this service to provide nice websites for friends who came to me with little budget and a need for a website.

"A clever idea, in theory"

What do you like best?

It's really not difficult to use; better than many similar options.

What do you dislike?

I am quite familiar with web design and it just does not allow me as many options as I like, in terms of customization. I am much more comfortable having more control of determining how much traffic we get (and to monitor SEO more closely).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Shop around. This may be helpful to some users, so know what you can handle.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Were we able to get it done? Yes, we could. But I just like more of a role in creating a new site, not staying to close to template.

"Scalable tools to help businesses grow"

What do you like best?

Some things were easy to understand and quite intuitive, like changing things on a page. You simply click and they pop up.

What do you dislike?

First, pointing my domains to 1&1 was not intuitive at all. In fact, the whole process felt like an upsell to get me to transfer my domain names to 1&1. I have never worked with a web host that makes it this difficult to use a hosting account that I purchased and a domain name that I own elsewhere.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

creating a new website, i realized i'd rather pay someone else rather than go through the stress

"Simple to use website builder"

What do you like best?

Straightforward easy to use website builder. A lot of free customization tools, you can upload your own photos/videos etc. There is also a very larger selection of free photos that you can use to customize your site.

What do you dislike?

No free trial of the builder so you have to sign up and if you are unhappy you can get your money back within 30 days.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Setting up a website for a personal freelance business. Trying to get a good looking site while being able to use a simple easy to follow builder.

Had hosted some websites, but we scaled up beyond the server capabilities at a competitive cost structure

"Great and cheap"

What do you like best?

What i liked best was the pricing for hosting and for domains. Possibly the cheapest you'll find for either or.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the UX as it can easily become confusing and not everything is put right in front of you.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Don't be afraid to ask support or go to their FAQ page to look at a problem you have.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're solving the ability to show our website and buy a domain and bundle all of that with hosting. The main benefit I have realized is the pricing.
