The technical aspects of 1&1 IONOS web hosting services are excellent. As what they are claiming: 1&1 IONOS is the hosting and cloud partner of choice for small and medium-sized businesses. Their time-frame in setting up an account may take some time (24-48 hours). After signing up, you will receive your Customer ID # and your login details in a few minutes, but the hosting account could be fully active in 24-48 hours. That means, FTP accounts and databases and also domain registration will be fully active within that time-frame. 1&1 Internet is now 1&1 IONOS and the main feature of their rebranding is implementing the Personal Assistant and online chatting with the representatives. So, if you can endure the sign-up process and don’t mind waiting, then we can certainly recommend 1&1 IONOS for you.

It's worth it to note that GoDaddy is primarily a domain name registrar, and one of the largest in the world. Their hosting services are provided as an addition to the basic domain name registration service. The quality of GoDaddy services is already legendary. Some consider it to be the standard of American hosting, while others criticize it wholesale. Our experts didn't find anything terrible, their hosting works just fine. Also, the support service worked well and all issues were resolved in one day. In conclusion: domain registration is easy and quick and hosting quality is dependable and good.

Very nice and user-friendly interface. Each plan has a full and detailed description of tech specs and features. The prices are quite low. For example, Shared hosting plan prices vary from $2.88 to $8.88 per month. From 20 to 50 Gb of disk space, unlimited bandwidth and websites ( only the cheapest one Stellar has a limit of three websites) and a website builder are included to these plans. In addition, with Stellar Business you get Pure SSD disk storage that will make your website performance quicker. To sum up, these resources allow you to build several moderate size websites quickly and easily. As for VPS and Dedicated servers packages, they also look attractive. Prices are fairly competitive: from $14.88/month for VPS and from $34.88/month for Dedicated Servers. The basic VPS package includes 2 Gb RAM, 2 CPU cores and 40 Gb SSD RAID10. Additionally, you can choose between clearance and new dedicated servers that gives you an opportunity to find the perfect server for you. As a bonus for all new hosting users, Namecheap offers free one-year .website domain registration for all Shared and VPS hosting packages.

Most users register domains either with the hosting company (where they plan on hosting their website) or with specialized companies called domain registrars. A lot of hosting providers cooperate with domain registrars or resellers.

The main advantage of registering a domain with your hosting provider is the possibility to get it for free with the hosting package. Hosting companies oftentimes offer such packages to attract customers. Nevertheless, this a great opportunity to save both money and time as you won’t need to register a domain separately and then set up DNS settings.

On the other hand, domain registrars offer a wide range of available TLDs. Also, they often launch different promos such as ‘50% off domain registration’ or ‘Buy one - get one free’.

There are several reasons why registering a domain through a registrar is slightly more popular than registering it with a hosting provider. Firstly, domain registrars usually offer better pricing. Secondly, if you do not trust your hosting provider enough, it’s better to register a domain with an ICANN accredited registrar. The loss of content would not be such a disaster as losing domain ownership because it’s possible to restore the content from backup but domain ownership is not that easily retrieved.

We recommend to register a domain with a trustworthy hosting provider. You can find the rating of the best hosting companies that offer domain registration at an affordable price above. You can check the company reviews there as well.

If you would like to register a domain with an accredited registrar feel free to check our rating below.
