Scalable performance that's easy to manage

Immediately change your RAM and PHP memory limit to react to spikes in traffic.
Easily deal with increased loads by scaling your performance level in seconds. Level 5 performance gives you 19 GB RAM with a 768 MB PHP memory limit, meaning your site can handle up to 500 visitors per minute.
Additional performance levels are $2 each for a full month and are billed per day. You'll get an email alert if we detect a risk of delayed requests resulting in low performance, so that you're prepared to scale up and back down again as needed.

Web Hosting

FAQ – Frequently asked questions
Whether a large or small business, an institution or private user, anyone planning on creating an online presence will require the appropriate storage space for their future website. This is where web hosting services come into play: the provision of storage space for a website by a hosting provider (also known as a provider).

Such storage space is referred to as web space. The provision of web space on a server (a computer designed for this purpose), as well as providing the necessary network connections, is usually done at a cost. To put it simply: the customers rent web space from a web hosting service provider.

In order to be able to offer customers the highest technical standards at low prices, 1&1 IONOS provides web hosting in the form of shared hosting.

If you are looking for a solution with even more flexibility, we also offer managed cloud hosting. With this, you can decide at any time exactly which system resources you will need.
There are a number of factors to take into consideration when choosing your provider. Look for an experienced provider that can offer you a tailor-made service for your web project, as well as flexible booking options in case the need for system resources increases or decreases.

Your data should be stored among the most secure systems with strict data regulations. The provider you opt for should constantly invest in the security of your data and your IT infrastructure. Pay attention to transparent prices, flexible packages and contractual terms that best suit your needs.
Powerful IT resources and security measures come at a price and must always be state of the art to protect customers' technical infrastructure and data effectively. When it comes to "free" web hosting plans, we recommend proceeding with caution. First, check if there are any hidden costs. Secondly, many providers tend to display advertising on their customer websites.

Even if the free basic features attract you, necessary functions or additional system resources often need to be purchased later. This ultimately results in your "free" option costing you money.

You can also operate your own server but then you bear the costs of infrastructure, security and maintenance yourself. As an experienced provider with millions of customers, 1&1 IONOS offers a professional web hosting service at a low price, as well as scalable services as required. Numerous applications like WordPress and Magento are included and can be installed in just one click.

We take care of security and technology so that you can devote yourself to your internet presence.
Which web hosting plan is the right one for me?
This depends on your requirements. If you are planning a simple website, consisting mostly of static HTML pages and minimal multimedia content, and with manageable data traffic, then our starter package is the ideal option for you. Of course, we also offer more complex packages that are suitable for dynamic web projects and high traffic. With our most powerful web hosting packages, you can comfortably manage resource-intensive, multimedia-based websites as well as extensive online shops. Compare the respective product details to find the right web hosting packages. We will be happy to advise you. You will also find comprehensive instructions and detailed information on all aspects of web hosting in the 1&1 IONOS Help Center.

Are web hosting services expensive?

1&1 IONOS offers you attractive deals for professional web hosting. The costs vary depending on the package you opt for and the optional additional features you choose. Please refer to the respective package for more information.

Which target group is the 1&1 IONOS web hosting package best suited to?

Our packages are aimed at companies, agencies, institutions and private individuals. Beginners will find suitable offers just as easily as bloggers, web developers, students and start-ups. We offer companies and agencies enough storage space and resources for multimedia company websites, brand showcases, and extensive eCommerce sites. 1&1 IONOS web hosting is also a suitable option for anyone who wants to move to an experienced provider.

What is the difference between web hosting and a server?

A server, or web server, is part of the web hosting infrastructure. They are powerful computers on which both configuration files and the data of the hosted websites are stored, i.e. websites and all website content. A root server is a server with "root access" to the configuration data of a server. The 1&1 IONOS web hosting service does not offer root access as we take care of all the necessary configurations for you. If you choose a dedicated server, a virtual private server or a cloud server, you will have root access and can configure the server yourself.

What is the difference between web hosting and a domain?

A domain is an internet address that leads to a web server. This server stores the respective contents, services and offers that you publish on your domain, i.e. the content that makes up your entire website. If you enter an internet address in the search bar of your web browser, you can retrieve the data that has been provided on the respective server. Providing adequate storage space on a web server is called hosting.
Your domain is your business card on the World Wide Web. It should be as simple and at the same time as distinctive as possible, so that interested parties can easily find your content on the internet. An internet address ideally consists of a short and memorable domain name and a distinctive top-level domain (also known as an extension), for example .de or .com. A domain is structured as follows: www.desireddomain.com.

What is the difference between web hosting and cloud hosting?

With web hosting, you can choose between package options that provide you with a fixed framework of IT resources (e.g. processor power, RAM, storage space) for your web projects. Cloud hosting on the other hand, allows you to configure the required technical features yourself or you can have them automatically distributed between your web projects. You can increase or decrease the system resources of your web project at any time. Billing is based on resource usage instead of a fixed monthly billing method.
  • If you wish, we can provide you with web hosting without a contract period, i.e. with monthly billing and a cancellation period in the corresponding packages of only one month.
  • 1&1 IONOS web hosting is ideal for running WordPress; there is a complete package available especially for this.
  • The package includes a certain amount of data storage.
  • If you have any questions: Our support is available 24/7. In addition, your personal consultant will also be at your side – completely free of charge.
  • All our web hosting packages include an SSL certificate.
  • Discover these special features and many more with our web hosting packages!
