1&1 Hosting guarantees you access to high performance hardware at value prices, and when you choose 1&1 as your hosting company you get one free domain registration included.

Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting is about mid-way between shared hosting, which has many customers sharing one same server, and dedicated hosting, which has a server dedicated to just one company. A virtual server is a physical server partitioned for use by just a few customers, and gives you similar customization options to a dedicated server, but at a much lower cost. 1&1 offers customers the choice of all kinds of hosting, including VPS, dedicated, shared, and cloud hosting.
