What are the benefits of PrestaShop hosting on 1&1 IONOS?


PrestaShop is a software platform for creating online stores. It is based on PHP programming language and requires a MySQL database. As an Open Source project, the system is constantly being improved and regularly developed by its community with new updates and extensions. PrestaShop is designed for e-commerce and essentially relies on design and ergonomics, but also many practical features.

Install PrestaShop in just a few clicks

Installing and setting up a CMS (content management system) on a web server requires good prior knowledge. The PrestaShop hosting on 1&1 IONOS means you can install everything in just a few clicks. Unlike with manual installations, you will have many configuration options. On Free Mode you are responsible yourself for updating applications and you can install many extensions even if they have nothing directly to do with the 1&1 IONOS offer.

Upgrade the great features with extensions

Once the download of PrestaShop is complete and the system has been installed, a multitude of functions are available to you. You can choose from more than 1,200 themes and 5,000 extensions to design and set up your store exactly how you want it. In addition, PrestaShop allows you to manage multiple stores using only one system. Search engine optimization and Meta tags help achieve high visibility in Google and other search engines. Even with this comprehensive functionality, the cache manager module ensures the high performance and short loading time of your store.


The free online store – for the experienced programmer
PrestaShop is a free Click & Build application in the web hosting packs
The PrestaShop community provides a large number of features
Individual and fully open customization of your own online store
Translated into more than 75 languages: ideal for international teams
Suited for experienced managers of online stores who already know which tools and features they need and can install them themselves


PrestaShop is available with all 1&1 IONOS Hosting packs, whether in the basic offer or the Unlimited packs, with the Click&Build applications. Our Unlimited Pro offers give you 2Gb RAM and multiple databases. If you choose this offer your store will meet high demands in terms of performance, speed, power and quality.
If you decide to use PrestaShop as a 1&1 IONOS Click & Build application you will get the latest version, installed and configured in advance with a design to suit your online store. With 1&1 IONOS you will always be on the right page. Your system will also be backed up daily so that you can easily reinstall a current version if you lose any data. 1&1 IONOS technical support is available 24/7 in case of any problems.
Both content systems, PrestaShop and Magento, have many qualities and are both suited for creating a lasting and reliable online store. They also offer quality modules (or add-ons) helping you to boost your online store and add touches to it. However, PrestaShop differs from Magento on some practical points:

  • The PrestaShop interface is more intuitive
  • Module administration is simpler on PrestaShop
  • PrestaShop has a large international support community
  • PrestaShop is less expensive and well suited for small, medium and large projects, whereas Magento is only suited for very large online stores

In the end it all comes down to user experience: some will feel more comfortable on one system than others. Test the PrestaShop application today as part of the 1&1 IONOS hosting offers and decide for yourself!
Yes, there is a PrestaShop demo (available in English and French from the PrestaShop site) which lets you view a typical online store created with this CMS. Browse through the demo to familiarize yourself with its intuitive interface and many options: payment options, contact information, images emphasized in a trendy design, simplicity of browsing, operation speed, strategic use of social networks, etc.

As well as having a preview of the visible part of the site, it is possible to test its responsive display on different mobile devices and also to log in to the dashboard to test all the features. The highly ergonomic interface has many administration features and categories. You can easily install a catalog, insert prices and also use PrestaShop add-ons to facilitate the sale and verify your statistics in real time as well as the revenue generated. Thanks to this CMS, every merchant can have a professional and infinitely customizable result.
Want to create a site for a company based in Europe? Then host your PrestaShop securely with the 1&1 IONOS European data centers. This relevant location will mean your domain name is better referenced in search engines while also optimizing the load speed for pages of your online store. Choosing Europe as a location will therefore mean that your French site works more effectively.
Security is a priority with 1&1 IONOS which is why we give you the tools to create a secure online store: all PrestaShop hosting offers from 1&1 IONOS include an SSL certificate. Your website will therefore run with https protocol meaning that bank transactions, user names and data transfer will be secure. You can therefore focus on creating your online store in the knowledge that your visitors will have a secure customer space.
