FAQ - Frequently asked questions about the topic

WordPress download

  • I would like to know how simple the process is. Can 1&1 tell me exactly how to download WordPress?

    We've designed our WordPress download to be easy enough for anyone to use—even someone with little or no technical experience. To begin, log in to your 1&1 Control Panel and head to the App Center. Here, you'll see the WordPress application. Finishing the action is fast, thanks to the 1&1 Click & Build feature—it simplifies the WordPress download process by reducing it to a few clicks of your mouse. The Click & Build feature requires you to make one choice before installation, and it depends upon your level of WordPress know-how. For novices, we advise choosing the WordPress Managed Mode, as it automatically removes complicated technical aspects of the installation. More advanced users might feel at home with the Free Mode, which allows you to set your own bespoke specifications for installation.

    The next step is to accept the terms and conditions and then follow our handy step-by-step installation instructions in the WordPress tutorial. Then, all you need to do is sync your 1&1 account with the WordPress download application. Simply log in to the administration panel and validate your WordPress credentials with your existing login details. And that's it! Now you're all set to create your website with the assistance of 1&1—we'll monitor and implement any important, necessary updates to help keep your website fully functional in the future.
  • What are the features of the 1&1 WordPress tutorial and wizard?

    Our WordPress tutorial and wizard are your go-to resources for kick-starting your website the moment you have completed the WordPress download. The wizard helps you select a fitting theme for your website, as well as pinpoint which plugins you should download to best streamline your website-building process. The tutorial and wizard control panel also support you with SEO (search engine optimization), and with user content which appears on your website.

    We've been mindful to ensure that all of the functions and features of our tutorial and wizard are accessible for absolute beginners, yet still useful for more experienced website builders. So, apart from offering an array of smart, effective tools, the tutorial and wizard also clearly explain each feature to you with a short description. What's more, we have designed the interface to be easy to navigate and to feel natural, meaning in next to no time you'll feel comfortable and confident building your website with 1&1.
