Expert Summary

With both companies offering web hosting services, and also being renown for their domain registration services, it is important to look at both companies with different hats on. In other words, what makes a great domain registrar doesn’t always translate to what makes a great web host.

Domain registration

Namecheap has for a very long time been primarily known for its domain registration service. They use an intuitive dashboard, secured with two-factor authentication, that makes managing a domain a breeze. Furthermore, Namecheap domain registration comes with many extras for free, such as email forwarding, free domain privacy, free SSL, and even 2 months free email hosting. Their Premium DNS is also great, but arguably, with free DNS such as CloudFlare so good, not worth paying for.

1&1 IONOS provides a free email address with 2 GB of storage. You also get free SSL, free WHOis and Domain Lock for security. They don’t offer premium DNS, but like I said before, this is not really a problem.

In terms of pricing, 1&1 IONOS offer extremely good introductory rates, with a .com domain only $1 for the first year. Unfortunately, as is common with many registars, the renewal costs are not the best, with the renewal rate for a .com $15.

Namecheap on the other hand, offers a .com for $8.88 with a renewal rate of $12.98 per year. It would take around 4 years to make up the difference.

Web Hosting

The difference is quite stark in relation to their web hosting offerings.

1&1 IONIS has recently updated their branding, and plans, offering a decent selection of hosting plans, utilizing SSD storage, with good resource allocations.

Namecheap on the other hand offers a mixure of SSD accelerated and SSD hosting for their shared hosting, which, if I am honest, could do with a significant refresh. Their VPS and WordPress hosting products, though, look pretty decent.

Overall, this is closer than what we would like to see, but 1&1 IONIS has just clinched our preference, primarily due to the poor hardware choice Namecheap has made with their SSD accelerated offerings.

I have been with 1and1 since they came to the USA in 2003. They have been a great host. I host about a dozen sites and over 20 Domain names. My WordPress sites are a mix of self-installed and “1-Click” installations. All are self managed.

Read the negative reviews carefully. They are nearly all from people that are new to web hosting. There is more to web hosting than the typical noob thinks. 1and1 may be partially responsible for this as they push the “ease of setup” pretty hard in their marketing.

But, if you know what you’re doing, and don’t need a lot of hand-holding, you will find them to be rock solid reliable, and they offer a lot of features and flexibility for the money they charge.

I am a web developer and work with many hosts and registrars. Trust me, 1and1 are easily the worst. THey will block you from doing even the simplest of tasks and their online support is never available. When calling you will often be kept for over an hour on the phone while you wait to speak to someone.

I have 23 websites hosted on a pro unlimited shared account. The up-time and speed are fine. The problem I have is their call centers. Hard to hear on a bad phone line often and sorry to the staff there trying to communicate with poor English skills or accents just makes it a frustrating time. Also take my advice.

If you have a serious security issue going on with one of your websites and you need help don’t try to solve it with frontline staff! Ask immediately (demand it) to speak to the “security team” who I found to be on a clearer line and spoke fluent English. ie They were in the USA.

Support was amazing and very helpful. I’ve used them for several years, but I’m transferring away now because their website is completely unresponsive. Luckily, it wasn’t difficult at all and I had no trouble transferring from them.

Pros: Great support They don’t hold your domain hostage

They always seem to reply very fast, and when buying domains and SSL certificates you really won’t get cheaper. I struggle to see how some of the other reviews posted have had problems as I have found them exceptional in almost every way. I am actually thinking of upgrading to their new SSD hosting for my ecommerce site, so will let you know how I get on with that in due course. Highly Recommend Namecheap!

Simply great Customer support. I had a problem and quickly contacted their support to see what the problem was. They identified it and had my website back up in minutes. They were very friendly, and clearly knew what to look for and how to fix the issue without delay or spending 20 minutes consulting with colleagues.
