1&1

I run five websites off of 1&1 for different outshoots of the company. For our web needs it works perfectly. We have a midgrade hosting package and it works perfectly. I know if issues arose from traffic or storage space 1&1 would have a solution for us.

Google Domains

Single domain users and small businesses, yes. Great for those just needing one domain and an easy interface to build or buy their website. For those with a bunch of domain names to house them all, Google Domains isn’t the place for you. They are lacking in the bulking capabilities that GoDaddy and HostGator provide.

Pros

1&1

  • Private registration: 1&1 offers free private registration which makes them an automatic favorite.
  • Reliable customer service: always someone available when I call in and I have never had my issue not get resolved.
  • Easy to use dashboard: domains in one place with DNS settings and other things that can be tweaked. It's easy to add an SSL certificate to domains as well.

Google Domains

  • Labeling and folders. It is easy to set up Google Domains to autodetect words in inbound emails and then pre-sort the emails appropriately.
  • Ease of use for executive staff and very good email portability to mobile phones or iPads.
  • UI - it is much more intuitive in my opinion than Outlook.
  • Forwarding - again much more intuitive than other email platforms.

Cons

1&1

  • 1&1 offers a lot of a cart services. They could do a better job at integrating services that are purchased separately from each other.

Google Domains

  • In the infrequent occasions that there is an issue or question that comes up, they could REALLY improve customer support. To be honest, the support is nonexistent and requires you to read through loads of technical FAQs and write in, which is very frustrating. Luckily there are so few issues with it that you really don’t have to worry!

Very easy to use interface and the steps to create the domain is short and sweet.

I am assuming that it is good. I have never had a need to use Google Domains support, which means that they are doing something right because my domains are working, and their website is designed well enough that I do not have to reach out for help.

Alternatives Considered

1&1

Rackspace I find to be too pricey for the service they offer. Pagely is very much WordPress oriented. I've had downtime with both that I haven't experienced with 1&1.

Google Domains

GoDaddy is great, but what I really like about Google Domains when compared to GoDaddy is the ease of centralization. Our email, calendar, accounts, domain, etc was all handled in one place and that made things really easy. You could also access domains easily and quickly by being logged into your email, instead of worrying about yet another log in.

Return on Investment

1&1

  • Thanks to 1&1, I have saved money on my domain costs with the free private registration and with a very reasonably priced SSL certificate. I save at least $100 a year using 1&1

Google Domains

  • Being able to host my URL with Google Domains is one less thing I have to worry about in my writing career.
  • I'm sure having my URL, which is my name, with Google Domains also helps people find me via Google's search engine.
  • Its ease of integration with other Google products, especially Google Apps for Business, is a huge plus for marketing and day-to-day work.
