Ease of Use

It was a bit of a surprise to our editorial team when it was discovered that 1&1 IONOS does not use cPanel as their management control panel. However, you will find that 1&1 IONOS’s proprietary control panel is simple to use. Within the control panel, you can easily create your website with quick access to apps such as WordPress, a website builder, and even a mobile website builder. 1&1 IONOS also has a Webspace Explorer that makes it easy to manage your webspace and perform functions like uploading and managing your files.

Uptime and Performance

Really the only fact you need to look at when evaluating the reliability of a hosting company is the strength of their guarantees. 1&1 IONOS starts out with an iron clad 99.9% uptime guarantee to ensure that your site will always be accessible to your visitors. Of course, the fact that they are currently hosting over 19 million domains all around the world also makes a very powerful statement as to their reliability. The equipment used is also a factor. Knowing that your site files are physically stored on at least two different servers, located in different physical locations, should help anyone sleep better at night.
