1&1 is perhaps better known for its backend services like hosting than it is for its website builder. Nonetheless, 1&1 offers some good features in its builder that will help you create a professional website in relatively little time.
Depending on the price package you choose, you could have from 200 to 10,000+ choices. Templates are well organized by niche and include popular site types like education, medical purposes, marketing, and restaurants. Curiously, there are no portfolio templates available at this time, despite their popularity for creative professionals. All templates are automatically mobile responsive.
Pricing for 1&1 starts at $6.99/month, which gets you a website with top-shelf SSL security, access to the drag-and-drop editor, a domain name, and basic email. If you want an online store, you’ll have to spring for the top-of-the-line package, which at $29.99/month, is still very well priced compared to other website builders. All packages include email and excellent support options, which include a large online knowledge base and the option to get assistance via email, chat, or phone. 1&1 also allows you to download your site, should you wish.
With many unique features offered, including an online photo editor, access to thousands of industry stock photos, and hundreds of web apps that increase the functionality of your website, 1&1 has a lot to offer. If you can find one of the better templates and overlook the dated and sometimes hard to use website editor, 1&1 could be a solid website solution for you and your business.
