Referral Domain Forwarding

Find out how to earn money by joining the 1&1 Referral Program and forwarding all your unused domains and subdomains to our website

By forwarding your domain with your Referral Program link, all visitors to your website will be automatically redirected to the 1&1 website. Each time a redirected visitor orders something, 1&1 will credit your account with a commission.

The referral link will be automatically associated with your domain names, so that all visitors of your website will be forwarded to our website. Using the referral link, we can identify the original website from where the customer was forwarded.

Please note:
Your domain will be used exclusively for forwarding and will therefore be 'parked' until you use it for something else.
Step 1
Log in to your 1&1 Control Panel and select the relevant package.
