3. VPS Hosting at 1&1:
VPS Hosting has gotten better in recent years with SSD drives and VMware virtualization that 1&1 also utilizes for its customers. With these features, resources are dedicated for your VPS which means the server is 100% yours. At the time of this review, 1&1 is offering four Virtual Server plans with details given below:

4. Dedicated Server Hosting at 1&1:
1&1 is one of the top hosts with best dedicated server hosting prices. Compared to several other web hosts who offers dedicated servers, the prices for entry-level and mid-size level servers are easily on the cheapest side. Cheap prices don’t come with unreliability and poor support at 1&1 though. Our experience with dedicated hosting for a project here has been a pleasant one but we will talk more about features and prices here.
Included Features with Dedicated Servers
5. WordPress Hosting:
WordPress hosting plans are very good at 1&1 in terms of reliability, speed, features and ofcourse the price. You can install the latest WordPress version containing a wide selection of the most important plugins, themes, and extensions for your project with just few clicks. Security and core version updates are performed automatically by 1&1. Prices are cheap for WordPress hosting and worth try for starters. We recommend to use one of these plans instead of going for free-hosting if you are launching your website based on WordPress.
