1&1 Internet Inc., www.1and1.com, has announced a six months free hosting offer to support business endeavors in the New Year. This substantial offer is intended to encourage small- and medium-sized companies to launch a new or re-energized web presence and eCommerce initiatives, thus increasing revenues and their web visibility in 2011.
Throughout January and February, 1&1 is offering six months free on all shared web hosting packages from the Home package and up, based on a new 12 month contract. Customers only pay for only the second six month period. A low one-time setup fee applies, which is $4.99 for the Home package and $9.99 for the Business and Developer packages. 1&1 shared web hosting includes everything needed for a successful web project – generous quotas of web space, free included domains, search engine submission, 1&1 WebsiteBuilder, multiple email accounts and unlimited website traffic.
For example, the 1&1 Home package, free for the first six months (and then $6.99 per month), includes 1&1 WebsiteBuilder, 150 GB web space, two free domains, free Online Office software suite, and eZShop. The Business package is also included in the offer (and then $9.99 per month), and comes with three free domains and more advanced web building tools including 50 MySQL databases, e-mail marketing tool and Version Control Management (git).
In order to help small businesses benefit from the boom in mobile internet surfing, 1&1 currently offers its hosting packages with free professional mobile web design software. Depending on the chosen package, new customers receive full versions of either NetObjects Fusion 1&1 Edition or Adobe Dreamweaver CS4, (both for Windows OS). Both solutions allow easy creation of a website optimized for mobile viewing. According to 1&1’s recent ‘SMB Mobile Website Audit’ of 818 small- to medium-sized businesses, 53 percent have never checked the appearance or functionality of their website for Smartphone users. Of the companies that have, 43 percent admit their website had both a reduced appearance and functionality. 1&1’s software offer is an ideal way for SMBs to engage with mobile consumers and capture new sales revenue.
