1and1 Promo Codes

    Updated for March 2017

    Welcome to our round-up of coupons for 1and1! Now, 1and1 or 1&1 (they seem to use both names interchangeably)has a unique approach to promo codes in that they don’t offer codes that you can enter into the shopping cart just before you complete your purchase. Instead, the codes are embedded into special links that activate discounted pricing. These links are provided to us by 1and1 directly. So certain links will give you a 99 cent domain name, while others will give 99 cent hosting.

    Since 1&1 has lots of these special offers, we’ve divided up this list into 3 sections: 1. The overall best 1&1 Coupons, 2. 1&1 Domain name coupons, and 3. 1&1 Hosting Coupons. If you know exactly what you’re looking for feel free to jump ahead to a particular section.

    WordPress on 1&1

    Early on, 1&1 set themselves apart as a host that supported and specialized in WordPress websites. These days WordPress is one of the most commonly used content management systems. Even though it started out as blogging software, it has gone on to be very versatile and with the myriad of plugins available (many free of charge) you can do almost anything with it now. 1and1 uses SSD (Solid State Drives) on all of their managed WordPress hosting servers which results in speed increases of up to 50% when compared to traditional magnetic hard drives. Their WordPress hosting packages also include a free domain.

    When you purchase a managed WordPress hosting account, you can choose to install WordPress in managed mode which means you can use their easy ‘click and build‘ installation process, and they will handle updating WordPress for you when new versions are released. You want to make sure that you keep your WordPress version up to date as new versions can have patches for important security issues. One thing to keep in mind is that manual installation of plugins is restricted in managed mode (for security purposes), and while that won’t be a problem for the average user if you are using a specialty or custom-built plugin that is not available through the WordPress backend you will not be able to install it.

    There is a playlist on their Youtube channel with videos and tutorials about using WordPress with their hosting.

    If you don’t go with a managed WordPress account and prefer to handle updates yourself, you can still install WordPress manually via FTP. If you have plugins that may not run properly if WordPress is updated, you may want to use the manual approach so that your site doesn’t break after an automated update. For most people, this won’t be an issue though. The majority of plugin developers will make sure that their plugin is functional with the latest version of WordPress.
