WordPress install 1and1 hosting
WordPress install 1and1 hosting using Linux basic package is relatively easy.
The order of steps I use are as follows.
Create the MySQL data base to use with WordPress.
Unzip or extract the WordPress download.
Configure the wp-config.php file.
Upload the configured WordPress to the 1and1 hosting Linux server.
Setting up the first administrator user account.

This setup is shown using the following 1and1 hosting software versions.

I have some experience with 1and1 hosting Linux package using WordPress. I have used the Linux basic and more recently the WP basic or WordPress basic Linux package that has SSD based data base and website storage.
This WP basic show a noticeable improvement in website responsiveness. Load times are quicker.
I think if you are only hosting one website and only need one data base that is all that comes with the WP basic hosting package the WP basic package is the one to choose. Website loads time are used by search engines as just one of many criteria in SERP or search engine results page rank. Consider people using caching plugins and CDN to speed website delivery SSD enabled hosting is something to take under serious consideration.
