Hoster

  • What is a hoster?

    A hoster is a provider of internet services that offers customers server resources, computing power and other services for a fee. With providers like 1&1, modern, secure and high-performing data centers are the core of various services such as online storage space, domain reservation and e-mail. As a hoster, 1&1 offers the complete infrastructure for its customers' online presence such as websites, blogs, apps or online shops. Hosters are often differentiated according to certain aspects of the service they offer either as a domain hoster, a webhost or a homepage hoster.

  • How do I use 1&1 as a hoster for my website or my online shop?

    With a professional webhoster like 1&1, it is easier and cheaper than ever before to make data available over the internet and to rent webspace for private or professional purposes. For just a small monthly fee, customers will receive as much storage space as their project requires, as well as round-the-clock service – including domains and e-mail addresses. And of course, your webspace will remain advertisement-free with 1&1 as your hoster. This is not always the case with free providers, with whom the range of functions and maximum storage space is usually also limited.

  • What are the advantages of choosing 1&1 as a server hoster?

Depending on the server option selected, you can easily scale system resources in real-time while the system itself is still running. This allows users to flexibly adapt storage capacity and computer power according to their respective requirements; in order to compensate for peak loads for example.
