Starter Plan: This would be better for a smaller website because you are limited on the number of email accounts, MySQL (20), and the amount of space is limited to 100GB. But it’s cheap enough starting at .99¢
Unlimited Plan: Called this because they provide unlimited webspace so you won’t be restricted to the 100GB like the Starter Plan. You can have unlimited websites and unlimited SQL Databases, daily backup, unlimited FTP accounts, unlimited email accounts,
Performance Plan: Their tagline on this one is “Guaranteed performance for high trafficked sites”. The extra’s with this is faster loading CDN, SSL certificate, and security.
All three offer free private domain registration, iStockPhoto with over 5 million images to use for your website, and so much more.

Their prices are competitive with the market and starting with their promotional offer of .99¢ it’s an offer that is difficult to turn down. The “small print” on this is you have to pay for 12 months and the renewal price is $5.99/mo.
The cost of a domain is .99¢ but you are only allowed one at that price and the renewal on that is $14.99 a year. It is more economical to get your domains at GoDaddy and assign them to 1 & 1 if you choose their hosting. The extra $5 – $7 adds up if you have hundreds of sites.
