Priced from only $59.99/month, and offering an optimal balance of performance, scalability and price, 1&1’s new entry-level Dedicated Server A8i ideally fits the needs of small- and medium-sized business users. Dedicated Servers are the premier solution for IT professionals and businesses that require robust server operations for applications and data storage without the capital expenditure or the physical space required for running hardware. The 1&1 A8i Dedicated Server delivers all the power and consistency of dedicated hardware at low cost. The new server has been developed in close cooperation between the 1&1 R&D center and Intel in order to meet the high quality requirements 1&1 has for every Dedicated Server with regards to reliability, data security and performance. 1&1’s close global collaboration with Intel has resulted in a hybrid server package that offers a fast and highly scalable solution, ideal for a range of user cases. The Intel Atom C2750 processor is unique in that all three main controllers (memory, storage and network) are directly attached to the CPU which creates faster communication between them and means faster CPU performance in general. For the user, the use of 8 CPU cores means the server offers ground-breaking speeds, consistently responsive performance and lower latency for this price range. Those requiring processing power for a number of simultaneous intensive computing workloads and Web requests - for example, an online business with significant databases, will thrive on this platform. Priced from only $59.99/month, (with a one-time $49 setup fee), and available in Linux, Windows or Managed configurations, the 1&1 Dedicated Server A8i delivers 8 CPU cores, 8 GB of RAM, 2 x 1000 GB SATA hard disk storage, 300Gbit/s external network connectivity, full 64-bit support, and is accompanied by 24/7 expert support.

The result is a great 1&1 server package – compared to earlier versions, the new A8i server delivers 30 percent more performance for the price-point”. A key element of Intel Atom technology is the low power consumption of the CPU core. While 1&1’s new dedicated server operates at high density, it does so with very low-power consumption. This is a perfect fit for 1&1 as a server provider focused on reducing heat loss and off-setting 100% of its energy usage of 1&1’s five international, green powered data centers.

As well as adding support for the latest version PHP5.5, 1&1 now offers trial installations of Click & Build Apps. Additionally, 1&1 SiteLock is now included within selected packages enabling website owners to monitor online security levels. 1&1 Web hosting is continually optimized for those who rely heavily on website applications for website design and development. 1&1 packages already include the most popular Click & Build applications with two installation methods: Safe Mode and Free Mode, which allows for more coding freedom. From today, all 1&1 Click & Build applications will have an evaluation option for users to explore the App in either mode before deciding which one to implement. Offering the same functionality and pre-installed plug-ins as the full install, the evaluation period will last for 30 days, during which the transfer from trial to full installation can be completed at any time. All content generated during the evaluation period will be moved to the regular installation once activated by the user. 1&1 advises businesses that a website that loads slowly or has images displayed incorrectly can damage their online reputation. To further safeguard against this, 1&1 has enriched its CDN, powered by CloudFlare, to provide targeted help. Firstly, a new Mirage™ feature analyses a Web user’s connection and screen size, (such as smartphone, desktop, tablet or laptop), to ensure that all images are being displayed effectively. In addition, 1&1 now offers CloudFlare’s Railgun™ functionality, to greatly improve the connection and delivery speed for dynamic content that was previously unable to be cached. 1&1 users can benefit from a new technique to identify and deliver the incremental changes quickly, thus allowing the delivery of dynamic websites to be more responsive no matter where in the world the visitor is located. Furthermore, technically advanced users who develop their websites with PHP can now apply the most up-to-date version of PHP5.5. In addition, Linux users now have full compatibility for versions, PHP Dev, PHP5.4, and Windows users can use PHP5.3. 1&1 today introduces a number of measures to boost website security. For those using Web applications installed in Free mode, 1&1 will notify them about necessary updates via email notifications. Emails advise customers about new versions of applications or plug-ins, security fixes and safety issues, and recommended actions to ensure websites remain safe and secure. 1&1’s SiteLock feature allows customers to scan their website for design vulnerabilities and stay informed about their online security levels – an important issue for both website owners and visitors. From today, 1&1 has added this feature at no extra charge to more Web hosting packages in the range. 1&1 CDN powered by Cloudflare, and 1&1 SiteLock Basic are now included within 1&1 Unlimited packages, from $4.99/month, and 1&1 Performance packages, from $7.99/month, and all 1&1 Managed Server packages from $59.99/month for one domain per package. Mirage™ is included in all 1&1 CDN or 1&1 CDN Plus packages, and additional packages can be added ($4.99 and $9.99 respectively) for those customers who wish to leverage the feature for more than one domain. Additionally, 1&1 Performance hosting packages and all 1&1 Managed Servers now include Railgun™ within their CDN. 1&1 Starter and 1&1 Basic hosting customers can add SiteLock Basic for $0.99 per account or $4.99 for each 1&1 SiteLock Premium account. The same price points are applied for those wishing to add a SiteLock feature to additional domains.

As a leading Content Delivery Network (CDN), CloudFlare’s technology proves to reduce the latency between data centers and end users. This effective partnership will deliver optimal performance and greater availability for websites. Website owners, for example, especially those who acquire visitors from the other side of the world, are able to deliver a flawless user experience. Robert Hoffmann, CEO Hosting, 1&1 Internet, comments, “1&1 has been eager to collaborate with an innovative CDN such as CloudFlare in order to further strengthen our Web hosting platform for both businesses and developers world-wide. Impressive website experience, improved traffic and reduced bounce rates are all tangible results that customers gain from such a strong partnership. CloudFlare will deliver new advanced CDN features to us in the coming months.” 1&1 now advances its CloudFlare offerings within 1&1 Web hosting packages to encompass CloudFlare’s impressive Mirage™ and Railgun™ optimizations. The Mirage feature automatically checks the type of connection and screen size that a website will be viewed upon in order to properly evaluate that the images are being displayed effectively. Images will be optimized for display regardless of whether the website is viewed through mobile, desktop, tablet or laptop devices. While Mirage™ functionality enhances image display and quality, the Railgun™ feature, a key USP of CloudFlare, boosts the connection and delivery speed for Web content which was formerly unable to be cached. Previously, dynamic content was categorized as ‘uncachable’ and required more time and resources to load new each time. However, CloudFlare has now developed a new technique to identify and deliver the incremental changes quickly, thus allowing the delivery of dynamic websites to be more responsive no matter where in the world the visitor is located. “We’re thrilled to partner with 1&1 Internet to bring CloudFlare to millions of their customers”, said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of CloudFlare. “Through our partnership, any 1&1 customer now has access to global performance and additional security. The 1&1 team has integrated CloudFlare with ease of use in mind, so any customer can get a faster and safer website with just a few clicks." 1&1’s Web hosting range starts from $0.99/month. The Unlimited and Performance packages currently include 1&1 CDN powered by CloudFlare and customers with SSL are also offered the option of an add-on version via their control panel.

"The new Top Level Domains will play a decisive role for future success on the Web" says Robert Hoffmann, CEO Hosting, 1&1 Internet. "A good domain must stand out and be easy for customers to remember. Search engines like Google are also optimized to display the most relevant results prominently. Special domains will have a strong influence on the listing of results and so ultimately on the commercial success of the business", continues Hoffmann. Customers who have not managed to obtain sufficient domain names with the appropriate .com, now have a chance to catch up. "But also those who already have a good address should protect their name in all possible variations before a competitor makes the move“, Hoffmann recommends. With the integrated forwarding function, all domains newly registered with 1&1 can simply be forwarded to already existing Web pages, regardless of the provider hosting them at the moment. Which new domain suffixes may suit your own business can be checked today at http://www.1and1.com/new-top-level-domains. The 1&1 domain portal suggests Internet addresses relevant for the particular business area or the individual field of interest. Furthermore, new Top Level Domains can be reserved directly and without cost. As soon as the chosen domain suffixes become available, 1&1 will inform customers automatically. In the pricing, customers benefit from the economies of scale from one of the world’s leading hosting providers.

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 change. 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 resources. 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.

The data from over 1,300 Americans shows that in recent years many have weighed their options for increasing their household income. The minimum income expectation from efforts to start a side-line business is on average $50,000 gross per year. The study would suggest that US entrepreneurial spirit remains strong. 1&1 advises anyone considering starting a new business project to think about the online tools available today that can greatly increase chances of business success and more flexible working. New research of 1,301 Americans( ) finds that both aspiration and confidence towards starting a new business is in mind for many. A total of 53 percent of those surveyed have ‘seriously considered’ starting their own business. There appears to be a slight variation by gender - 59 percent of men versus 43 percent of women. On a regional basis, the Southwestern United States has the most ambitions, with 57percent considering their own business, followed by the Southeastern region (54 percent) and Midwest (52 percent). The people of the New England region are the most reluctant, with only 50 percent being interested. Some 20 percent of those surveyed have considered starting a side project in tandem to their existing job, in order to boost family income. Other primary motivations included the opportunity to be their own boss (24 percent), a better work/life balance or family life (19 percent), and passion for a hobby (21 percent). Perhaps unsurprisingly, the desire to start an enterprise does decrease with age. Those aged 35-44 years are most driven towards launching a business (67 percent). An interesting aspect of the study is the average US expectation for the amount of secondary income that would make creating a start-up business worthwhile. The average US requirement was $50,384 gross per year from such a project. This figure is much lower yet comes in second to the highest expectation, that of Germany with its average being $67,039. The US is followed by Spain, $43,750, and then UK, requiring $38,148. Both French and Polish citizens would be happy with far less additional income, at $33,148 for France, and only $16,098 for Poland. Robert Hoffmann, CEO Hosting, 1&1 Internet, comments, “The Internet makes it much easier today to start a business. A powerful website and the right tools to attract customers can often be the key needed to transform a business dream into a real life success. Modern website packages deliver the necessary eBusiness elements for attracting, interacting and transacting with online consumers – ready to place your website on top of Search Engines and connect you with Internet communities like Facebook, Twitter and eBay. Since you can use these powerful tools over the Web with no software or programming skills needed, starting a website is easier than many realize – the result being that a sideline or hobby business can become economically feasible and conducive to work/life balance”. Internet Psychologist Graham Jones believes that Internet-based tools can certainly help entrepreneurs to succeed. Jones comments, "Research over the past few years has shown that when people use the Internet as the focus of their business their productivity goes up. If only more people would tap into the online tools available, they too could run productive businesses which are using the extensive knowledge available online to give them a competitive edge". 1&1 MyWebsite offers easy website creation in minutes with industry-specific templates and content for over 200 business types, and is ideal for start-up companies.

The two elements of the center, 1&1 Social Page Manager and 1&1 Social Share, enable SMBs to grow awareness and engage with end customers via the popular online platforms Facebook and Twitter. The solution allows users to create a Facebook page effortlessly by replicating MyWebsite content into a Facebook page automatically. Business owners can now increase customer interactions by updating and scheduling their posts simultaneously across different social media platforms directly within 1&1’s Social Share management tool. At a special offer price of $4.99/month, Social Media Center comprises an affordable and convenient way to conduct consistent social media communications. Most business owners today recognize that social media channels are a useful way to raise awareness for a business. Furthermore, search engines are now relying more heavily on social media ‘likes’, ‘shares’ and ‘tweets’ within their SEO algorithm, making it even more challenging for SMBs to attract traffic and sales leads. A lack of time and skill can often lead many companies to fail to fully leverage valuable social channels. As part of its constant enhancements to its MyWebsite, 1&1 has developed a solution for simplifying and achieving greater efficiency in the way small businesses can communicate on social media. The 1&1 Social Page Manager designs a professional Facebook page based upon website content. Business name, website headers, logos, contact details and additional site content are quickly synchronized with Facebook to create a business page similar to that of a business’s website. Within the tool, SMBs can also create customized Facebook tabs specific to individual pages of the website. A simple on/off slider enables any subpage to sync with Facebook and create unique, custom tabs. All elements of Social Page Manager can be edited directly within the 1&1 MyWebsite editor tool to eliminate the need for multiple logins. Once a Facebook page is created, all updates made to a MyWebsite are also automatically revised on the social media page as well. For example, if a restaurant wishes to include a new special on their website each day, the changes are instantly made to their Facebook page. Such consistency across multiple online outlets helps to ensure accuracy and build online branding. “Social media has comprised a paradigm shift in the way businesses communicate. It represents a new level of transparency as consumers now expect real engagement with their issues”, said Robert Hoffmann, CEO Hosting, 1&1 Internet. “In fact, a recent study by 1&1 finds that nearly half of consumers feel that even the smallest businesses should be active on social media in order to remain relevant to them”. While many companies do create Facebook pages, a common mistake is failing to update them with fresh, compelling content. It can be a challenge to ensure consistency across social outlets and outreach is often unbalanced across channels. 1&1’s new Social Share tool enables companies to build and maintain relationships by engaging in two-way communication with followers and fans. All previous posts and messages are organized and tracked within the manager tool. Posts, comments and tweets can all be made via one, centralized dashboard and login. Small businesses can transform their efforts with the Post Scheduler, allowing them to plan an unlimited amount of posts at times when they are not able to do so manually. “Our new Social Media Center can be a powerful eBusiness tool, in not only allowing the rapid creation of social media material, but also the centralized and timely management of multiple channels,” continues Hoffmann. “All business owners today would be wise to explore solutions to enable them to satisfy social media expectations in the long term. There is real business value to social media when it can be done in an automated and time efficient manner.” 1&1’s Social Media Center is a further example of how 1&1 actively advises small businesses on how to achieve a successful eBusiness strategy. Starting today, 1&1 MyWebsite customers can add the 1&1 Social Media Center to their MyWebsite package with 1 month free and currently a special offer price of $4.99/month thereafter – with no minimum contract term. 1&1 MyWebsite offers industry-specific templates for over 200 business types and is ideal for small companies with either an outdated website or no website at all. With individual text, picture and design modules, any level of computer user can create a professional looking website in only a few minutes. 1&1 MyWebsite now offers more than 75 Web applications that can be integrated simply by ‘drag and drop‘ into a website design to add functionality across eCommerce, communication, social media, or business management. All 1&1 MyWebsite packages include 1 domain, 200 email addresses and unlimited Web space and data traffic.

The new wave of domains will see many attractive new endings to be launched such as .tech, .shop, .blog, .music and .web. 1&1’s portal offers the chance to express interest in registering such domains and provides a range of informative advice and news on the subject. The new domains will play an important role in determining future online identity and so will become increasingly important for businesses to consider. 1&1 urges US businesses to begin planning which new domains could make the most impact upon their online audience. Over the next three years, the creation of more than 1,000 new gTLD domains will mean a revolution in the way we identify websites. As well as using a .com, websites will also leverage addresses relevant by theme - such as subject area, geographical location, website type, business industry, etc. The launch will mean a less crowded Internet, as there will be a greater range of options for an Internet address. For business owners, the result will be great new potential for capturing traffic and developing their digital branding. For many new gTLDs, there will be significant interest from all around the world. Therefore, to ensure best chances of success, 1&1 recommends business owners and individuals should pre-reserve domains early. 1&1’s new pre-reservation portal, www.1and1.com/ntld-check, is a useful way for website owners to browse the new domain endings and make a risk-free pre-reservation for their relevant domain name choice. With its portal, 1&1 offers the ability to express an interest in purchasing the domains early in the process. While a pre-reservation does not guarantee that a domain will be purchased, it is a highly useful step in considering options, and laying foundations within the imminent new landscape of Web addresses. The website is also a valuable source of domain news, expert advice articles and practical tips for those planning their domain portfolio. Robert Hoffmann, CEO Hosting of 1&1 Internet, comments, “A new era in Internet addresses promises great opportunities for every business online. However, research released in March shows that the majority of SMBs are still unaware of the launch of new gTLDs. 1&1’s new pre-reservation portal comprises an excellent resource for website owners to learn about their options, pre-reserve their new domains now and benefit from 1&1’s global scale and competence with domain registration”. An important topic for business owners to consider is their success on popular search engines such as Google. In recent months, search engines have begun to detail how their algorithms will be adapted so that new gTLDs will index as highly as regular domain endings. The largest have indicated that if a new domain is reflective of a website’s content, it will become a key ingredient in their delivering of the most relevant search results for consumers. This development means that new gTLDs are already becoming attractive to brand and trademark owners online. As a global leader in the Web hosting industry, 1&1 is well placed to deliver a high quality service to its domain registration customers.

As a result, 1&1’s new Video Maker tool enables a business to create audio-visual material they can publish on their website for a more persuasive sales approach. Within a few easy clicks, any level of user can create an online video from up to 20 images, and accompanied by a wide choice of royalty-free music. The feature is ideal for venues such as restaurants and hotels, or craftsmen who can showcase a portfolio of past work. Brochures are another important tool for many companies in assisting consumers with their search for products or services. If these brochures can be downloaded directly from the company website and printed, business owners save the time of fulfilling requests for information and save on the postage costs of sending these out. 1&1‘s new Online Brochure tool makes light work of creating such brochures. Within seconds, the user can combine images and text in a PDF to create a 32 page flip-brochure that their customers can view, save, print or share using buttons for Twitter, Facebook and Google+. While the majority of business owners today do recognize the value of attracting and conducting business with customers online, few are using their own website to collect feedback or research their customers‘ needs. Online surveys are an effective way to gain information in a number of areas such as customer satisfaction, effectiveness of their website, market research, demand for new offers, etc. 1&1 MyWebsite can help with its new Online Survey tool. The App delivers professional looking online surveys to be embedded directly within a company homepage. Users can select from different survey templates that can be easily edited and customized. A comprehensive report of results is provided online or emailed to the business owner in either PDF, Word, PowerPoint and Excel formats. These new Apps are further examples of how 1&1 actively advises small businesses on how to achieve a successful e-business strategy. 1&1 MyWebsite now offers more than 75 Web applications that can be integrated simply by ‘drag-and-drop‘ into a website design to add functionality across eCommerce, communication, social media, or business management. 1&1 MyWebsite has already the widest selection of Web applications for rapid integration than any other website creation package and will continually add to the number of Web applications available.

From a study of more than 400 US adults, 29 percent have walked away from using or buying from a website due to fears of the level of security. The degree of consumer understanding of online dangers is high – 70 percent of Americans recognize that threats such as malware and viruses change by the hour. Smaller businesses with a website that uses hand-coding or open-source applications will benefit from being able to reassure online consumers that their website is well protected. Today, more transactions than ever are being conducted over the Internet, requiring consumers to input sensitive information, such as credit card numbers and identifiable data. 1&1’s “Website Attitudes Study” of 403 US consumers finds that consumers’ concern and expectations for website security are also increasing. In fact, 1 in 3 (33 percent) of those surveyed have either had their own, or know someone who has, had details lost or taken as a result of using a business website. Thus, it is perhaps unsurprising that there is an impressive level of consumer awareness nowadays for protecting their data while online. Some 80 percent of Americans understand that many websites that capture data (such as contact details or billing data) can be a target for cyber criminals, and 70 percent recognize that threats can change by the hour. Significantly, almost half of consumers (47 percent) believe small businesses are more of a target for malicious online activity when compared to larger stores. The concern, while perhaps off the radar of many small companies, is clearly inhibiting many consumers from fully supporting American small businesses. In fact, only 14 percent believe SMBs are fully protected online. Such an understanding clearly impacts consumer behaviour, with 29 percent having abandoned an online transaction or enquiry because they were worried about the security of their data. Additionally, 70 percent admit they are likely to spend more with a business that shows that it takes steps to enhance website security. The study also took a measure on what actions consumers would take should their personal data ever be compromised from a business website. Unsurprisingly, most expect to feel distressed and highly negative about a company as a result. More than two thirds (76 percent) of consumers anticipate sharing their experience with others, with 39 percent foreseeing social media posts, 30 percent willing to report it to the press, and 31 percent being likely to explore legal action against the business involved. There is clearly much potential for costly and long lasting damage to a business’s hard-earned revenue and brand reputation. As the majority of business websites now capture users’ data, every business on the Internet needs protection. The use of open-source applications and hand-coding can allow much customization for designs; however, security can be an issue. While websites built with vendor-managed templates, such as 1&1 MyWebsite, involve very little risk of being compromised by malicious activity, as they leverage a professional system to create, update and protect the design, hand-coded websites carry more risk. Mistakes as simple as forgetting to close parentheses when entering code, or not applying updates to open-source applications can help facilitate malicious activity from hackers. Thanks to a new service provided by 1&1 together with SiteLock, better protection is now easily available for such hand-coded websites. With the new feature from SiteLock (www.sitelock.com), 1&1 customers can scan their website for design vulnerabilities and stay informed about their online security levels. Through the end of the 2012, 1&1 will provide this security service free for one domain for the life of any new Web hosting or eShop contract. 1&1 SiteLock also comes with a shield icon that is displayed on the business’s website, showing hackers and customers alike that this site is protected. As a global leader among Web hosts, 1&1 is well placed to deliver a high quality service to its customers. The company currently holds over 11 million customer contracts worldwide and manages 11 million domain names.

[1] 403 US adults surveyed by WIRED Magazine via electronic feedback formFaster Website Analytics with New 1&1 Mobile Apphttp://press.1and1.com/xml/article?article_id=1188Mobile analytics tool offers insights into the behavior of website visitors for small and medium businessesnospam@example.com (1&1 Internet Inc.)Mon 17 Dec 2012 00:00:00 +0100Small and medium businesses should regularly check the most important statistics behind their website. The success of marketing and advertising efforts can be measured by the number of site visitors and their perceived behavior. As a result, the experts at 1&1 Internet, who continue to provide their customers with tools necessary for successful Internet strategies, now advise website owners to regularly analyze their professional site. 1&1 customers can now access these Web statistics around the clock and from wherever they are. Available for free download from the iTunes store and Google Play, the 1&1 Insights App was developed for all Apple iOS and Android phones. Most small and medium businesses realize the necessity of having their own Web presence. However, how many visitors does the website attract? Which pages are most popular among visitors and which ones are hardly visited? On which days do additional advertising efforts work especially well and generate more traffic for the website? Self-employed professionals and entrepreneurs should make a point to regularly check the online success of their business and marketing. For Web developer and game entrepreneur Andrew Slattery (https://ironfistdesign.com), understanding his international clientele and where they were coming from was essential. “Through our analytics we noticed a large spike in traffic and in-game purchases from the Netherlands. In order to appeal to these customers who we would ordinarily lose due to a low bounce back rate in that region, we knew we had to translate images and core game elements into Dutch. The feedback was immediate and traffic continued to grow.” Additionally, Slattery realizes the value of analytics tools to help serve the growing demand of his business. “With the introduction of real-time tracking, you can stay informed of surges in traffic. Long term analysis and data can allow you to see if you need to upgrade to a higher package altogether to meet the projected future growth.” 1&1 MyWebsite offers more than 350 industry-specific designs. For many companies, such as physical therapists, hair stylists, bakers, pharmacists, gardeners or caterers, a computer is not in the center of their work. They rarely have the time to thoroughly analyze their website. The 1&1 Insights mobile app offers an ideal solution to these groups. Their websites’ statistics can easily be checked via smartphone or tablet, regardless of time or location. The 1&1 Insights app provides information about the number of website visitors, shows which pages are viewed most often and where those visitors came from. Animated graphics make it possible to view the figures for the past weeks, months or years. Just a quick glance at the phone is enough to see if running an advertisement or posting on Facebook directly influences the behavior of website visitors. The new tool is a further step in offering SMBs easy to use Internet solutions to support their business goals. Aside from MyWebsite, 1&1 offers support to improve your search engine ranking as well as personalized advice with experts on hand to help a business gain new customers through the Internet. The new 1&1 Insights mobile app is available for all 1&1 Internet MyWebsite and Web hosting packages and can be used at no additional charge.

With this solution, 1&1 Dynamic Cloud Server virtual machines can be restored by creating an image, or snapshot, of the current server configuration and database at any time. For example, if complications arise after installing new software, previously saved snapshots of configurations and databases can be restored. No modern business can afford extended downtimes of their IT-infrastructure. Manual server reconfiguration, among other inconveniences, can result in several hours of downtime when systems could be inaccessible. Such disturbances can have a lasting effect on a business with unhappy customers or loss of earnings as possible consequences. 1&1 Snapshot offers the necessary security precaution for such situations. The tool allows users to create an image of the current configuration and database from the 1&1 Control Panel within a few clicks. The snapshot of original configuration and database remains available until it is overwritten by a new snapshot no matter how many changes are made to the server. This is especially useful for customers who need to regularly test new software. The server snapshot is permanently saved by 1&1 for an unlimited period of time, and only if the operator creates a new image, will the old one will be replaced. Snapshot is available for all new 1&1 Dynamic Cloud Server customers at no additional cost.

So far, smaller companies especially could only minimally benefit from this trend because they have not optimized their website for Google and other search engines - that is why they can remain almost invisible to potential customers on the Web. Very often, the main reason for this obstacle is the cost, as 1&1 Internet found out in a recent study. The provider has now responded to this and with 1&1 SEO Spotlight, has developed an affordable professional solution that can even help companies with a tight marketing budget to capture attention. The new 1&1 SEO Spotlight is not a pure analysis tool, but rather more of an interactive advisor. There is, for instance, an innovative keyword generator that automatically compiles the best search terms. In order to adapt the keywords in the source code of a website (“meta elements”) for the search engine, all that is required is to simply enter some business data such as a company’s name, industry and desired advertising region. Optimizing the website’s content is equally easy with step-by-step instructions to assist users. Aside from content, the number of relevant links - meaning websites matched by theme as ranked valuable by Google, is the most important criteria for a good search engine ranking. The new 1&1 SEO tool focuses on several points at once. First, it gives handy tips for a useful back-link strategy. Second, it offers support for creating a Google Places entry. Business owners can also keep an eye on their two main competitors. To help keep ahead on the Internet, the user can submit the competitor Internet address into the system and watch the development of their competitors’ rankings in relation to their own. An interactive user interface makes it possible to have a website’s optimized success displayed as graphs for different time periods. In addition, 1&1 delivers statistics listed in tabular form. All data (including SEO level, keyword ranking and weekly comparisons) are updated regularly and, if desired, will be available via email. “Prior to the development of 1&1 SEO Spotlight, there has been extensive market research,” says 1&1 CEO Oliver Mauss. “We found out that most solutions miss the mark on the needs of many small and medium businesses. With our new SEO tool, for the first time there is an offer that fully considers the requirements of beginners and can be used without programming knowledge”. The latest development is a further step in the marketing initiative 1&1 started last November. The aim is to create equal opportunities on the Internet with the help of search engines. The new solution is included in the 1&1 MyWebsite Plus package (available for $19.99/month) or can be purchased for as little as $9.99 per month with all 1&1 shared Web hosting, eShop, Dedicated Server, Dynamic Cloud Server, or other MyWebsite packages. There is a free 30-day trial period.

In an era when consumers rely on around-the-clock e-commerce and online banking, more Americans than ever are being frustrated by websites that are faulty or taken off-line during the night for maintenance to be performed. A key finding is that 58 percent of consumers have decided to avoid a company in the future as a result of finding a faulty website. Some 68 percent of US users are more critical towards website errors today than they were five years ago. As a result, 1&1 advises US firms that choosing a robust hosting provider has never been so important. 1&1’s ‘US Reliability Survey’ of 1,340 consumers finds that 65 percent of US Web users are still regularly inconvenienced by faulty websites. Over half (58 percent) see large variations in the reliability of the websites which they use. America’s Top 5 ‘Common Website Faults’ as found by Web users are: 1. Slow running websites (65 percent) 2. Significant differences in Web page loading times (58 percent) 3. Broken website pages (42 percent) 4. Web addresses that lead nowhere (34 percent) 5. Online orders not processed (32 percent) Website faults such as these have led more than 1 in 3 (58 percent) to decide not to use a company again as a result of its faulty website. Frustrations with a business website have led 72 percent of Web users to abandon a company website for a competitor’s. While most website owners aim to schedule maintenance and upgrades at traditional down times to minimize disruption, it appears this has done little to appease almost a third of consumers (28 percent), who feel regularly inconvenienced by the issue. Interestingly, most respondents (49 percent) believe that websites for small and large companies are equivalent in terms of frequency of errors. 68 percent of Americans are more critical towards website errors today than they were five years ago. During that time, 56 percent believe that they have become better able to judge whether a website contains faults. Nearly half of Americans (42 percent) report that they regularly feel anger, worry or stress as a result of using a faulty website. The most worrisome aspect is doubts over whether an online transaction has been completed properly, with 58 percent having been affected. Oliver Mauss, CEO 1&1 Internet, inc., said, “Unreliable websites continue to reflect badly upon businesses of all types and sizes. It is clear that when faced with a faulty or off-line website, consumers will turn elsewhere. Perhaps more surprising is the proportion that will be unwilling to return. With this in mind, businesses must ensure their websites are well designed, have robust functionality, and benefit from the most reliable Web hosting infrastructure available to them.” 1&1 Web hosting uses geo-redundancy to help enhance the reliability of its customers’ websites. All data and processes are mirrored and operated synchronously in different data centers. If there should be any unexpected problems at one of the locations, such as an electricity or failure, all upcoming processes are automatically taken over by the other data center – meaning maximum protection from downtime. 1&1 carries out updates and planned maintenance work without any disturbance to servers by switching between the two identical platforms. Thus, 1&1 websites will not become unavailable as a result of hosting maintenance. Graham Jones, Internet Psychologist, advises, "Users of your website are less likely to return if your site breaks or doesn’t work properly. People get frustrated by slow loading and by the addition of technologies that work only in certain circumstances. If you have shopping carts or other ‘add-on’ services, test them and test them again to be sure they cannot break or cause problems. Similarly, if you have forms – make sure they work.” 1&1 Web hosting packages, currently available from $3.99/month for the first 12 months (regularly $4.99/month), also benefit from high connectivity via the company's own global backbone. Recent research commissioned by 1&1 concluded that consumers appreciate faster business websites. As a global leader among Web hosts, 1&1 is well placed to deliver a high quality service to its customers. The company currently holds over 11 million customer contracts worldwide and manages 11 million domain names. Websites, Web hosting, and Web marketing. Easy as 1&1. Find more at www.1and1.com.

From now on, configurations for all essential performance features such as CPU or RAM can be scaled hourly as needed. For small and medium businesses, the innovation of such flexibility with server resources allows them to manage their IT needs just as efficiently as major corporations who leverage such tools for long-time success. This lowers the costs of small business IT and enhances the competitive nature of the market. 1&1 Dynamic Cloud Server (DCS) offers users a virtual server environment with full root access. The innovative aspect of this model is found in the adaptability of each machine’s basic settings that can be changed to suit users’ own needs over time. It is also possible to switch between either a Linux or Windows operating system. 1&1 Dynamic Cloud Server can be a sophisticated alternative for companies whose resource requirements change frequently or for start-ups that cannot accurately estimate how much computing power they will need for their online project. If a company using a traditional dedicated server requires an increase in computing power, significant time and resources are needed to change configurations over to a new machine. 1&1 Dynamic Cloud Server eliminates such a time consuming process by enhancing usability and accessibility. If, for example, a promotional campaign or one-time project attracts more website visitors than usual, this cloud server would allow the performance parameters to be increased with the help of an intuitive slider for expanding computing power up to 6 cores, 24 GB RAM and 800 GB of hard disk space. An upgrade or downgrade to a server would be complete in less than five minutes. For users whose online projects require the capacity of a more than a single cloud server, 1&1 offers a multi-function virtual infrastructure. That means that up to 99 virtual machines can be added to an existing contract and ordered conveniently via the user’s 1&1 Control Panel. After setup, users can configure each Dynamic Cloud Server as usual, with individual capabilities to start, stop, reset or delete them. Managing and monitoring the server on-the-go is also not a problem. 1&1 provides you with mobile apps for the DCS that can be downloaded for free via the following links: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/1-1-mobile-monitoring/id409369112 http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cloud-server-management/id392277406?mt=8# https://market.android.com/details?id=com.oneandone.mobile.monitoring.server https://market.android.com/details?id=com.unitedinternet.cloudserver 1&1 mobile server apps can be used with all current iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices as well as mobile phones running the Android operating system. Technically, 1&1 Dynamic Cloud Server is based on the Xen virtualization platform. The modern high-performance data centers of 1&1 provide excellent high network connectivity, the optimal infrastructure for product innovation. Multiple redundant systems are in place along with comprehensive measures to protect against power outages, loss of data, cyber-attacks and external hazards such as water or fire. Such measures were developed to guarantee 1&1 users maximum availability, 365 days per year. 1&1 Dynamic Cloud Server is currently available from only $49 per month. The base price includes a processor core, 1 GB of RAM and 100 GB of hard disk space. Each additional processor core, GB of RAM and 100 MB of hard disk space costs only 2 cents per hour.
