User Interface (UI)

1and1.com makes a very bold statement when it comes to UI. They take charge of the website and make sure that they highlight what they want very boldly. It’s just that the search box for the domain name registration looks lost as it appears towards the bottom of the above-the-fold.

The domain name search results, recommendations page are designed with the thought of offering more services to customers. At the same time, they also give the alternate choice to skip their services. Finally, when placing an order for the domain name registration, the Add to Cart system and the Checkout process is quite easy and simple to understand.

1and1.com Review Conclusion

As a domain name registrar, 1and1.com could have been a good option, consdering that they also have a initial domain registration discount. They have great UI that makes it an enjoyable experience. But good things apart, when shopping for domain name registration, the total price of the order comes out higher than expected.

For example, if you register 10 domains with them, you end up paying around $50 more every year. This is expensive.

Verdict on 1and1.com as Domain Name Registrar

  • I RECOMMEND 1and1.com for buying only one domain name and that too just one time as their introductory price is the lowest in the market.
  • I DO NOT RECOMMEND 1and1.com for buying only more than 1 domain name and/or renewing domain names with them as their prices are a bit high.
