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.

I cannot think of any reason why someone would not or should not use Namecheap for their domain registration/management.

Cons

1&1

  • I wish they'd let you use other SSL providers.

Namecheap

  • It'd be nice to have steeper discounts for buying the service for further out
  • Some of the premium domains are outrageously priced without much information why
  • I tried using domain agents to try to negotiate for a domain and found their support to be unhelpful -- if Namecheap could help more with buying a domain thats already used that might help

Alternatives Considered

1&1

iPage is terrible. They don't even really have a proper cPanel and GoDaddy is kind of hard to navigate once you log in. The DNS settings are not obvious and the interface is clunky and old looking. By comparison, 1&1 provides all the features you'd need to manage your domains and services with them and they continually redesign the dashboard for ease of use.

I don't like GoDaddy's advertisements or user experience.

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

Namecheap

  • All of my domains are through namecheap. Having a good domain has been priceless. $10 for my domains has paid thousands back to me.
