Jun, 2014 : 1&1 Launches WordPress Optimised Hosting


ionos.co.uk logo!June 16, 2014 - 1&1 Internet, Ltd. (www.1and1.co.uk), a global leader among Web hosting providers, today announced enhancements to its Web Hosting portfolio that offer an optimised workflow and improved experience for WordPress users. The new interface caters to the needs of both novice and expert users of the popular CMS. A simplified installation process as well as a new WordPress plugin, exclusive to 1&1 customers, will help guide users through the setup process to achieve various goals. Furthermore, premium themes are now made available at a discounted rate for those wishing to leverage a truly unique look.

1&1 routinely updates its products and processes to provide customers with the most seamless integration of popular applications. The newest additions to 1&1's robust Web hosting portfolio now streamline the process of initiating, setting up, and populating a WordPress project with unique content. The 1&1 Control Panel guides users through establishing a name for the new project and completing the installation process in a quick and easy manner – an ideal feature for those new to the WordPress platform. While minimal technical knowledge is required to use this tool, the functionality of the installation is not limited. Users benefit from choosing the level of administration that optimally fits their needs and schedule. Whether WordPress is installed with full administration rights or as a 1&1 managed solution, a 30-day evaluation period is also available to allow users to test multiple apps without commitment to find the best solution possible.

Once the initial installation is complete, users can leverage the new WordPress Setup Plugin, available only to 1&1 customers, to customise their WordPress project. Developed in response to consumer demand by 1&1's team of experienced specialists, the plugin enables a WordPress project to be configured in three easy steps: 1. Select a website category – Creating a unique online presence with WordPress has never been so effortless, be it a website, blog, gallery etc. 2. Choose a theme – After indicating how the WordPress installation will be used, suggested themes are displayed to best showcase its purpose. 3. Incorporate plugins – In the final step, recommended plugins can be selected to further improve the installation. These three easy steps allow customers to launch an optimal Web presence quickly and efficiently with WordPress.

Robert Hoffmann, CEO of 1&1 Internet, comments, “Around one in four websites built using a content management system employ WordPress. Therefore, it is important to support this market with a targeted focus on usability and functionality within the platform. These new solutions, partnered with 1&1's reliable hosting environment and guaranteed performance, offer heightened opportunities for users to achieve rapid online success.”

To further ensure that a professional looking Web presence is easily achievable and economical, a 20 percent discount on third party premium WordPress themes is now available. Within the 1&1 App Center, resources are available to help with building new projects and strengthening existing installations. It is a centralised place for everything Web developers and designers need when working with their applications. WordPress themes and plugins, along with best practice tips, can all be found in this section of the 1&1 Control Panel.

The 1&1 WP Unlimited Plus package, currently priced at £6.99/month+VAT, provides 2GB of RAM to guarantee optimal performance for applications such as WordPress to run smoothly. From sign-up to project launch, 1&1's customers benefit from a streamlined workflow that has been optimised to produce fast results. More than 40 popular open-source applications are available to install in just a few clicks. With two different installation options, users benefit from the security and flexibility that is best for their unique requirements.
