1&1 Internet, Inc., has introduced an
exclusive, first-of-its kind Web content tool that allows users to
increase the value of their Web pages by easily adding informative and
entertaining content at no charge.
The 1&1 Dynamic Content Catalog gives users the ability to enhance
the professional appearance of their Web sites by adding timely and
relevant content from major news and information sources within a
variety of subject categories, such as: news, finance, sports,
entertainment, health, science, high tech, travel, games and weather. A
travel agency, for example, can offer current weather and other
information about popular destinations, or a sporting goods store can
provide the latest scores.
“Dynamic Content Catalog is a major step toward giving business
customers, and even our private users, the ability to compete with the
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“big playersÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ in their respective categories,” said 1&1 Chairman of
the Board Andreas Gauger. “ItÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s a no-cost, low-maintenance way to drive
people to your site and then greet them with a unique and sophisticated
presentation when they get there. And since the information is
automatically updated and refreshed, chances increase that theyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ll
The weather information available through the Dynamic Content Catalog
is provided by AccuWeather; while news and a majority of the other
material is sourced from the Associated Press.
Incorporating information from the Dynamic Content Catalog involves
little more than adding a link; it requires no programming skills or
special software. Its automatic update feature means the content
refreshes itself and is basically maintenance-free.
For optimal performance, information from each of the available modules
within 1&1ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Dynamic Content Catalog can be customized to best suit
individual Web sites. Font size and color, along with background
appearance, are all easily configurable from the usersÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ control panel.
In addition, customized style sheets can be used to create content
The new Content Catalog is available with each of 1&1ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Home,
Business and Developer packages, in addition to its Managed Server I,
II and III packages for both Microsoft and Linux. Existing subscribers
will automatically receive the Content Catalog option.
Gauger said the 1&1 Dynamic Content Catalog is simply the latest
offering in the companyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s long list of value-added services.
“Fresh, updated content like that which weÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re offering is extremely
valuableÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Âand usually quite expensive” he said. “We are providing it to
our customers free of charge as another of the many tools we offer to
easily and affordably establish a harder working Web site.”
