Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – (The Hosting News) – November 1, 2005 – International web hosting giant, 1&1 Internet, Inc., is now offering private domain registration in each of its domain registration packages and all shared hosting plans at no additional cost.
According to company Chairman Andreas Gauger, the initiative is part of an aggressive new campaign that 1&1 has undertaken which is intended to ”change the domain registration industry” by offering feature-rich domain registration packages available at the lowest prices on the market. Currently, most web hosting and domain registration companies charge an additional fee for private domain registration.
Mr. Gauger commented on the new service, ”We don’t feel we should charge our customers money to ensure that their domain information stays secure with us, and thanks to our size and strength in the industry, we don’t have to. 1&1 has always offered web hosting and domain registration packages with the absolute most features for the lowest prices. Private registration is just one of the latest tools people will get as a standard offering when they choose us.”
After 10 years of growth in Europe, where it is one of the largest and most widely recognized IT companies, 1&1 brought its products to the United States in late 2003. Since then the company has quickly established itself as one of the country’s 10 largest web hosts and continues to grow rapidly.
For the current domain registration campaign, 1&1 significantly increased the features available with each of its various domain registration plans and added a host of others while maintaining current pricing structures. In addition to private registration, 1&1’s various domain registration plans now include such other security and technical advantages such as: a waived ICANN fee, advanced Spam filtering, free DNS management, domain forwarding, domain locking and 200 email aliases. The packages also feature a 1GB email account, three free starter pages, 1&1’s WebsiteBuilder software and advanced marketing features .
”We want to change the domain registration market the way we changed the web hosting market – with competitive pricing and inclusive packages,” Gauger said. ”The additional tools and resources we are now including as standard in our domain registration plans are things that most other companies charge extra for. We firmly believe in providing the most value for the money. This business model is the reason we have grown so steadily over the years, and it will be the foundation for our future growth as well.”
