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

I've seen Google Domains work perfectly and perform well for companies of 10 - 100 people, or it is good for just the executive tier of a larger organization to use. There are so many integrations you can run with Google Domains - Salesforce, Zendesk - half of the ROI is the ease of use of Google Domains, the other half is that just about every company has an integration that can run with it.

Pros

  • Their uptime is outstanding.
  • They have great customer support with real people.
  • They have all the technologies available I need to run my website.
  • Their dashboard is easy to use.
  • Integration with Google Suite.
  • Simple and easy to use.
  • They don't try to oversell me.
  • Integration with other website.
  • Easy interface.

Cons

  • I wish they'd let you use other SSL providers.
  • It's on the more expensive side of domains.
  • Overall, it's hard for me think of different things I need. It's already a great product.

Alternatives Considered

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 and Namecheap are both undeniably better than GoDaddy—better companies, less confusing interfaces, and generally lower prices. Namecheap usually has lower prices on domains, and definitely has more sales, but Google Domains's free private registration can make it cheaper in the long run.

Return on Investment

  • There is no downtime so we appear dependable to our customers.
  • The cost of 1&1 is very reasonable.
  • Simple interface that saves me time and frustration.
  • Integrated with existing Google accounts to provide 2FA and other security features and avoid the need to create another account.
  • Free private domain registrations save me $100+ per year.
