1&1 Internet Inc., one of the world’s leading Web-hosting and domain-name registration companies, today announced the availability of the .us domain as part of its offering for the first time. The .us domain is now available — just in time for the July 4th holiday. During the months of July and August, customers will be able to register their .us domains for only $2.99 per year as a special introductory offer for the Instant Domain registration of 1&1.
Like all 1&1 products, .us domains come with no hidden costs and no binding contracts. The domain package includes e-mail and website forwarding, complete DNS management, and more. The .us domain can be used with the full range of 1&1’s hosting products, which start at just $4.99 per month. In addition, as part of the current promotion, existing .us domains can be transferred to 1&1 for the $2.99 annual registration fee.
“We continue to see an overwhelming response to our service here in the US,” said Andreas Gauger, CEO of 1&1 Internet. “Our ability to offer the .us domain — at a price far lower than what others charge — provides customers with a new option when considering and creating their Web presence. The low- cost availability of the .us domain is just one example of the value we provide our customers.”
For customers that would like to add a .us domain to an existing account — or who simply want to own a little piece of America — this special offer allows them to do so at the lowest annual rate available. The .us can be added, or an existing .us domain transferred, to any 1&1 hosting package during the promotional period for the $2.99 annual registration fee.
With many traditional domain names unavailable, consumers can find it difficult to register the names they want. 1&1’s special .us offer gives them the opportunity to get the memorable domain names they desire and to establish their own unique American identity online.
1&1 offers six all-inclusive, feature-rich Web hosting packages built on the latest Microsoft or Linux server technology.
1&1’s complete Home Package starts at only $4.99 per month and includes:
1&1’s Business Package offer several enhanced features for only $9.99 per month and includes:

“Between the flexibility and affordability of the packages we offer,” continued Gauger, “and the novelty of the newly available .us domain, we anticipate this special summer offer will bring even more users into the growing 1&1 fold.”
