Optimized Hosting for WordPress
WordPress is the hands-down leader in content management. Couple this popularity with the increasing need for hosting services that are geared toward individual content management systems, and Internet professionals will have no trouble seeing why 1&1 has launched WordPress Optimized Hosting.
Catering to the needs of both novice and expert WordPress users, the new interface will provide a simplified installation process and control panel (see image) with WordPress themes and plugins, along with best practice tips. WordPress Optimized Hosting will also include a new WordPress plugin exclusive to 1&1 customers to guide them through the setup process to achieve various goals.
Customers can configure a WordPress project in three steps: select a website category, choose a theme (see image) and incorporate plugins.
“Around one in four websites built using a content management system employ WordPress,” said Robert Hoffmann, CEO of 1&1 Internet. “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.”
Additionally, premium themes are now made available at a discounted rate.
The 1&1 WP Performance package, currently priced at $10.99 a month, provides 2GB of RAM. Currently, 1&1’s WordPress Web hosting range starts from $0.99 a year with a 12-month commitment.
