New 1&1 Shared Hosting Range Defines New Market Standard for Web Hosting
Focus on delivering optimal end-to-end solution for website applications.
Improved performance with guaranteed RAM and international CDN. New 1&1
Principles outline commitments to customers on support, choice and reliability
PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 1 &1 Internet, Inc.,
www.1and1.com, a global leader among Web hosting providers, today debuted a
new Web hosting range engineered to deliver the ultimate performance and
flexibility for hosting a website. 1 &1 hosting now provides an outstanding
end-to-end customer experience for those who use website applications.
Available in both Linux and Windows formats, the new range brings together
professional design tools, a user-friendly Web application center, optimized
performance, and an experienced Expert Support team for top Web Apps. The
launch is accompanied by the introduction of 1 &1 Internet's new corporate
principles for Hosting and eBusiness which offer customers solid assurances on
support, flexibility for contracts and security on all hosting packages.
In response to the ever-increasing needs of website owners, 1 &1 Web hosting
has been redesigned to greatly optimize the implementation of websites that
use popular open-source applications. Included with hosting from $1.99 per
month, 1 &1 App Center contains 40 popular 1 &1 Click & Build Applications
with two types of installation methods: "safe mode" and "free mode", as well
as news, tips and information about top apps. Safe mode offers the
convenience of a managed platform – with 1 &1 performing critical security
updates and ensuring installed App versions are up-to-date for the customer.
1 &1 now also offers increased facilities for developers to adapt their apps
with outside, self-made plug-ins, themes or code. For such website owners, 1
&1's new 'free mode' is ideal, offering installation of an app within a few
clicks, but with complete coding freedom. Customers can easily switch a 1 &1
Click & Build Application from 'safe' mode to 'free' mode as their needs
1 &1 now makes it effortless for customers to optimize app-based websites for
best results. A library of best practice, pre-installed themes and plugins
for 1 &1's top five applications (WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, Typo3 and
Magento) delivers immediate solutions for enhancing mobile view, security and
performance. Furthermore, users are offered over 100 1 &1 Web Apps for easy
integration of HTML code snippets. 1 &1 Web Apps make online sharing of
social media, communication, presentations and multi-media seamless while
allowing professionals to adjust and customize the appearance of the apps.
For technically demanding users, and available with the 1 &1 Advanced package,
1 &1 now provides customers direct App Expert Support – advice, fixes and best
practices from trained Apps experts on the top five applications, as well as
MySQL and PHP.
Undoubtedly, some websites can be heavy on resources, perhaps due to surges in
traffic or the use of resource-hungry applications like Magento. Of course,
slow loading or unreliable websites means a reduced Web experience and can
reflect poorly on a business. 1 &1 now offers Web hosting that guarantees
performance to ensure fast website loading times, website response times and
database query results. Such factors lead to a better website experience for
online audiences. Highly unusual in the market, 1 &1 Advanced package
customers now receive guaranteed website performance of 2GB RAM for free.
Such guaranteed RAM can provide a performance level similar to that of server
Recognizing the importance of mobile optimized websites, 1 &1 today launches a
new Mobile Website Builder, allowing customers to create a new website or
simply convert an existing design into a new mobile compatible version. The
tool allows easy adaptation of links, graphics, colors and text. Included for
free with the 1 &1 Unlimited and Advanced packages, other customers can also
add the feature to their package.
1 &1 integrated a CDN (content-delivery network) to offer Shared Hosting
customers enhanced speed-to-delivery for their website visitors. The CDN
caches static content from 1 &1 customer websites in 23 locations around the
world, thereby storing those files closer to end visitors and helping sites
load faster. All dynamic content of websites is still delivered directly from
1 &1's servers, and all master copies remain safely in 1 &1 secure data
centers. 1 &1 Unlimited and Advanced packages include 1 &1 CDN, and customers
with SSL or mobile sites are also offered the option of an add-on version via
their control panel.
Robert Hoffmann, CEO Hosting, 1 &1 Internet Inc., comments, "For the majority
of website owners, achieving an excellent end-result is their priority. Many
find that Web hosting can mean either compromised speeds, or complex
administration of their App-based sites. 1 &1's new Web hosting offers a
unique modular approach to achieve the optimized hosting environment for a Web
project – with guaranteed performance, expert support, security and
enhancements all integral and industry-leading".
The company also introduces five new 1 &1 Principles for Hosting and eBusiness
for all new and existing customers. With '1-Trial', 1 &1 promises the freedom
of a 30-day money back guarantee. '1-Click' means that those with changing
performance requirements can always downgrade or upgrade at any time. The
'1-Month' principle guarantees that customers can choose a non fixed-term
contract, and not commit longer than a month. '1-Call' is all it takes to
reach an expert, around the clock, 7 days a week. Finally, '1-Secure Choice"
means that customers can rest assured in the knowledge that all websites
benefit from the maximum security and reliability of geo-redundancy across two
separate state-of-the-art data centers.
Hoffmann adds, "1 &1 now offers a best-case platform for both technical
freedom and dependable support and guidance. Through maximizing elements such
as performance, security, design and expertise, 1 &1 aims to heighten its
customers' satisfaction and success – we will continue to drive excellence in
these areas and provide many new benchmarks for the industry."
The 1 &1 Web hosting range starts at $1.99/month. For more information about
