    With website builder PRO can I create a new project and use website builder pro to create a site using sub-domains or with a new project do I have to purchase another full domain name?

      Hi Stephen,

      the Website Builder (Pro) is a “1 web project per contract” tool. If you want to you create more than 1 website, you can simply order a second (or third, or..) contract.

      Best regards,

    After about 2 hours work the website builder service stops working. I can’t add nothing 🙁 Restart help only sometimes but even if help only on the 15-20 min.

    1. 1and1help says:

      Hi Dariusz,

      might be the big video (YouTube) header you are using. Depending on the power of your PC this continuously playing video can take to much ressources from your system so that everything you try to do freezes after a while.

      I would recommend to not only restart the website builder editor but your whole computer when this happens again. Additionally, i would try to close things/apps in the background to save some ressources from the beginning.

      Best regards,

  3. I want to create a web site with photo galleries and video content BUT I would like this accessible only to the people I give access to.

    Is this possible with 1&1 or do I need a more sophisticated package ?

    1. 1and1help says:

      Hi Michael,
      according to which software you want to use, make sure if there is a role based permisson system. So you can create users and only grant them to visit your content.

      Alternative is to create a password protection, which is completley independend of the software you are using. This is how it works:
