FAQ - Frequently asked questions about the topic:

Website builder

  • I run a small business with a limited budget. Can I really create a website that's cheap, mobile-friendly, and packed with great features?

    Yes! People assume that it costs a lot of money to build a website, but that's simply not true. 1&1 makes it easy and affordable. Here's how the process works:

    Step 1: Pick plan and domain

    If you already own a domain, transfer it. If you don't have one yet, we'll help you find one. 1&1 hosting plans, which include a free website builder, offer extremely competitive pricing for budget-conscious business owners.

    Step 2: Create your website using our free website builder
    Using our setup wizard, choose from one of our hundreds of website templates, which include Web pages designed for many different industries. All of our templates are mobile-friendly, which means your customers can visit your site using their smartphones and tablets. Can you really get all of this from a free website? Yes. Yes, you can.

    Step 3: Use Web apps for a customized visitor experience
    Using our Web apps, you can integrate social media, images you've stored in the cloud, and even online payments into your free website. Let customers book appointments, track orders, watch YouTube videos, read content, and much, much more.

    Bottom line: You don't have to spend a lot of money to create a beautiful, feature-rich, and surprisingly cheap website. It's not about how much you spend on a website — it's about how well it works for you and your customers.
  • I have a website already, but I like what 1&1 has to offer. Can I transfer my existing site without a lot of hassle?

    Yes! You can handle the transfer a couple of different ways. Transfer the site yourself, backed by 1&1's tech support team, or let our professional Web team take it to the next level.

    If you've already built a website for your online business, we make it as easy as 1-2-3 to transfer your site to 1&1. We offer a 30 day free trial to test our website builder for yourself..

    1. Pick your plan. Browse through our plans and choose the one that fits your business. Pick the contract term and payment schedule that works best for your business.

    2. Move your website to 1&1. We make it easy to move your content to our servers and to fit it into one of our free website builder templates. If you need support during the move, we're available 24/7.

    3. Transfer your domain. Transfer your existing domain to us, and terminate your old contract. Your website is reborn, hosted by 1&1.

    If you'd prefer a custom design to one of our templates, let a 1&1 professional website creator transform your existing website into a knockout showcase for your business. After creating your unique website design, the 1&1 team will:
    - Optimize your website so that search engines can find it
    - Set up online directory entries

    Yes! 1&1 isn't just in the business of offering free websites and affordable hosting. We offer several different options for attracting new customers to your site.

In addition to optimizing your site when you first build it, you'll get notifications about your search engine ranking. Our SEO tools provide ongoing analysis of your site's text and structure to improve your Google rankings.

    Connect your site with popular online marketplaces
    If you sell products on eBay, Amazon Marketplace, Etsy, or other online storefronts, 1&1's Web apps will connect your customers with your online storefront. Do you sell real estate or manage property? Use 1&1 Web apps that showcase your listings on Zillow and Trulia.

    Attract visitors from social networks
    Whether you're active on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, LinkedIn, or other social networks, our Web apps connect your social media accounts to your business website. If you own a restaurant, register your business with Foursquare so that guests can check in and find each other.

    Take advantage of local search
    1&1 can register local companies with Google My Business so that you're easy to find on Google Maps, Search, and Google+. You'll be able to display the same address, phone number, hours of operation, and more across all of Google's services.
  • After I create a website and get new customers, I want to keep them coming back. Can 1&1 help me generate repeat business?

    Yes! 1&1 offers valuable tools for lead nurturing and generating repeat business. Here's how we help our customers build relationships with their customers:

    Step 1: Build website
    Create a website for free and host it with 1&1. Use 1&1 Site Analytics tools to learn more about your customers.

With 1&1, you'll learn the answers to these questions and more.
