As one of the original players on the domain registrar scene, 1&1.com provides reliable and effective web hosting services, including sophisticated website building tools. Known for its cost effective packages, 1&1 offers customers generic and international domain registration they can access even while on the go with their unique mobile app.
Normally registering a domain can run you anywhere from $9 to $15 dollars. However, 1&1 occasionally runs specials where domains are offered for as low as .99. That’s less than 1 dollar to have your own little piece of the internet! They also offer SSL certificates in three specialized packages which run from $9.99 to $29.99 for the first year.
1&1 also offers Private Domain Registration- included FREE with your domain! Many users opt for Private Domain Registration as it masks your personal information from the public on the WhoIs registry- an online database of information associated with registered domain names. It stores and publicly displays domain name information, such as creation and expiration dates, the registrar of record, and its various contacts.
Their SSL certificates offer a user friendly interface, are easy to set up, and offer online validation without filling out complicated forms or paperwork. SSL certificates offer an extra layer of security to your site, which improves your chances of gaining repeat customers. Once installed, your website will be immediately encrypted up to 256-bit.
1&1 is the only registrar service that offers automatic SSL adjustments, meaning your existing 1&1 websites will be automatically adjusted for SSL use with all links converted to http.
1&1.com offers a full comprehensive list of questions and answers on their website, and provides phone numbers in case you need to speak to a live person, available 24/7. If you dont want to wait around, you can even set up an appointment to have them to call you! If phones or reading Q&A pages isnt your thing, 1&1 also offers fantastic email support.
