Webspace from 1&1 – custom-made for your website

What is a webspace provider?

The online space in which your website is stored is known as webspace. For your webpages to be accessible online at all times, your website must first be saved on a computer which is in operation and connected to the Internet around the clock. A computer which provides such a platform is a webspace server. You don't have to worry about operating and managing these computers yourself because webspace for your website can be secured through a webspace provider service. There are also services provided by resellers who purchase webspace from other providers and then offer it to users on demand. Depending on the requirements and scope of your website, the right webspace must meet several criteria. As such, it should support certain programming standards so that your pages can be displayed exactly how you want them to be.

There's something for everyone with the webspace packages from 1&1, including a free domain name free domain name alongside matching e-mail addresses.

  • How can I access my webspace?

    You can easily upload data to your webspace via FTP. All you need is an FTP client, such as FileZilla. You can easily configure all the necessary settings using the 1&1 Control Centre.
  • What should I look out for when selecting a webspace deal?

    Webspace is the place in which you store your data on the 1&1 server and make it available on the Internet. So when it comes to choosing the right webspace deal, you should bear in mind how you plan to use your webspace. Anyone who wants to host lots of images on their webspace will also need a certain amount of storage space. Many providers limit the amount of storage space in their deals. By contrast, you can enjoy plenty of space in all our other webspace packages and not worry about running out anytime soon.
  • What advantages can 1&1 offer over other free web space providers?

    With 1&1, you get many different web hosting packages that contain many different features. By contrast, free webhosting is usually limited in its functionality and provides just a few gigabytes of space. The number of sites is also often limited, much like email storage capacities. 1&1 however, brings extensive webspace capacity for low cost.

    Whilst hosting with 1&1 is not free, most of our webspace tariffs offer unlimited storage and do not limit you on the number of projects or websites. Domains with popular extensions, such as .com or .net, and many more are available - something which free webhosting rarely offers.

    Complementary applications for content management, such as WordPress, Joomla! and others are also available with our webhosting options and can be easily setup with 1-click installation. MySQL databases can be used with our services, as well as platform independent scripting languages such as Perl, Python and Ruby. This means that all options are open to you to help make your page truly individual.

    Merchant websites offering free webspace simply cannot compete with our extensive features. With our marketing tools, you can optimize the visibility of your website and get an overview about the success of your site. The newsletter tool allows you to inform customers and partners directly. 1&1 hosting packages are also completely ad-free, something rarely offered and often annoying when using free webspace.
  • Can I try 1&1 webspace hosting for free?

    Unlike many other providers that offer free webspace, 1&1 has no free tariffs on offer. Therefore, we hope our powerful packages and professional support are enough to convince you.

    Naturally, if you choose to use completely free hosting from other providers, you may face issues with obtaining expert advice on technical issues. However, with 1&1 you can simply call us and you will be connected to one of our experts who will be happy to answer your questions. This means you will be helped quickly and competently, 24 hours a day.
  • Can I protect my webspace with an SSL certificate?

    An SSL certificate ensures authenticity and integrity. With just a few clicks, you can secure your online storage space and build trust with your users. 1&1 offers low fees for SSL 256-bit encryption for the maximum protection regarding data transfers. The data is encrypted to protect against eavesdropping—encryption of the data directly to the webspace, however, does not take place.

    If you order an SSL certificate for your domain, you will be able to identify this thanks to the https in the address bar of your browser. In this case, 1&1 operates with security service GeoTrust, a company that ranks among the world's largest certifiers of SSL encryption. More information relating to the 1&1 SSL certificate is available here.
  • How much e-mail storage is included with my webspace?

    With each hosting package from 1&1, webspace for email is included. The email webspace is added additionally to your online storage for data and applications. The size of your email storage depends on the hosting plan selected. In the low-cost entry-level packages you receive 2 GB and 100 email boxes. However, with the professional packages you receive unlimited storage and webspace.
