WordPress now powers more than
30% of the online blogging platform. Recently I came to know about 1and1 Managed WordPress Hosting plan and would like to share some more details about the same.
In this tutorial we will discuss some the great features 1and1 team has put together for us and steps to signup for 1and1 WordPress managed hosting plan.
1and1 Control Panel provides really nice options:
- Domain Control panel
- Websites panel
- Hosting panel
- FTP Account panel
- MySQL Database
- SSL Certification Setup Option
- Email and Office Setup Option
- Online Marketing Options
1and1 also provides
free Domain for a year and free for each renewal period.
Let’s get started:
- Register for 1and1 Account.
- I would suggest to register for
1and1 Unlimited PROplan.
- Next screen will ask you to provide Domain Name.
- You could register new domain or transfer existing one to 1and1.
Next screen will give you summary of your order with Hosting Plan, Domain name and more. Just click on
continue to pay for plan.
Once you place your order, you will get couple of emails with confirmation order and
customerID information. Just login using your
customerID and password to get started.
Next step is to setup your WordPress blog.
- Provide your WordPress Login Username
- Enter your Password
- Click on Agree
- Click on
- On Next screen select
Just login to your Panel and you will see your live site.
Now login to your new site and checkout plugins and themes section. 1and1 theme by default adds 8 WordPress plugins which I personally don’t like it.
I would suggest you to remove all default plugins and install only required plugins.
