1&1 Internet, the world’s largest
Web-hosting provider by known servers, is putting more Web power in the hands
of its users by adding state-of-the-art Interactive Tools to its shared
hosting and managed server packages, and significantly upgrading its e-mail
features at no additional cost.
Featuring DynamicSiteCreator and PDF2Web Converter, 1&1 Interactive Tools
allow users with little or no programming experience to easily and affordably
create high-end web sites that include the latest technologies. With
DynamicSiteCreator, for example, 1&1 customers can generate entire Flash-animated sites. PDF2Web Converter gives businesses an opportunity to leverage
previous investments in brochures and other printed materials by allowing them
to easily convert such documents into Web pages.
"Our new features provide 1&1 customers with the competitive advantage of
a more powerful web site," said Andreas Gauger, 1&1 Chairman of the Board. "No
other US web host offers such functionality for the same price, which gives us
a unique edge as well."
Additionally, 1&1 has made several improvements to the e-mail accounts
included with its 1&1 Instant Mail, 1&1 Instant Website, Linux/Microsoft
Shared Hosting, Managed Servers, eShops, and SharePoint Hosting packages.
Effective immediately, these products will feature a mailbox increase to 1GB,
the addition of IMAP advanced mail protocol — allowing users to access email
from anywhere — along with Symantec virus protection and Spam filtering
technology for all accounts.
"These enhancements allow our users to strengthen their Web presence with
the latest technologies and a new level of e-mail communication, quickly and
in a cost-effective manner," Gauger said. "It’s another way we’re giving
people more tools to create harder working Web sites."
New customers will enjoy the new features upon signing up while existing
users will see them automatically added to their accounts at no additional
