Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – (The Hosting News) – June 22, 2006 – Webhosting company, and subsidiary of United Internet, 1 and 1 Internet, is offering a tool that creates Real Simple Syndication (RSS) feed and displays it on web sites. According to the company, 1 and 1 Internet is the first web hosting company to offer this tool. Some of the benefits of RSS as a content delivery vehicle are that it is spam and virus free; and customers do not have to deal with mailing list maintenance issues.
1 and 1’s EasyRSS is designed to make it possible to display information updates instantly. The main feature is the ability to create content such as news for a web site, use the 1 and 1 Dynamic Content Catalog to show third-party news, and create a simple podcast or photocast in combination with 1 and 1 Photo Gallery to disseminate.
John Cook, General Manager of 1 and 1 commented, ”We are offering this feature now because we truly believe our customers will find this to be an incredibly useful tool. Right now, most major news sites use this tool. However, we see RSS trickling down to the consumer and small businesses. For instance, a little league coach disseminating the teamâ€™s current batting averages and other statistics. In addition, it’s an ideal tool for podcasting and photocasting, which is very popular right now.”
A 2005 report by research firm Ipsos Insight stated that ”A common thread throughout the study is the appeal of RSS to the average mainstream Internet user -â€¦27 percent of Internet users enjoy the benefits of RSS without knowing itâ€¦suggesting that RSS is not just for the tech-savvy few.”
The EasyRSS feature is free on 1 and 1’s Beginner, Home, Business and Developer packages.
