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.

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.
