Installation in Standard Mode makes installation of your web application easy and also allows you more freedom to customize. The updates and security of your Standard Mode installation is not managed by 1&1 and will require your ongoing attention. Standard Mode installations allow you to modify all files, manage the database and install add-ons without restriction. This type of installation offers all the possibilities that a manual install version would offer, but without having to perform the manual install yourself.
Installing WordPress in Managed Mode simplifies the management of your web application. The updates and security of your WordPress application are managed by 1&1. Managed Mode installations generally have various add-ons and plugins included for each web app that have been tested and are compatible with Managed Mode. Manual installation of add-ons are restricted for better security reasons. 1&1 will automatically update your WordPress application but third-party enhancements will need to be updated externally.
