1&1 Implements Price Reduction Across All Products

May 5, 2009 by  

Web Hosting ToolsLondon – 1&1 Internet Ltd, the world’s largest web host by known servers, is currently holding a significant promotion which provides 50 per cent or more off the cost of the first 6 months on all its web hosting packages, dedicated, managed and virtual servers as well as eShops. Effective until 30 June 2009, 1&1 has applied the reduction across its product lines to reflect the demand for even more cost effective web solutions. For enterprises in particular, the promotion represents an ideal opportunity to review the cost of hosting and ensure that they leverage the most up to date technology for their money.

Whilst price promotions are commonplace in the UK hosting market, they often apply only to specific, usually higher-end packages or restrict users to older hardware. 1&1’s Half Price promotion delivers a 50 per cent or more discount across a very wide range of the latest specification hosted solutions, subject to minimum term and set-up fee where applicable. The offer comprises a great way for all types of user to reduce their hosting costs. The move is the latest example of the 1&1’s ability to use its global scale to drive competition in the UK market and raise standards across all price points.

1&1’s world class web hosting range now sees the 1&1 Home package priced from only £2.49/month+VAT. Available in both Linux and Microsoft configurations, the solution is ideal for a wide range of consumer web projects such as family or hobby websites and boasts an impressive 1.5GB web space, 20GB monthly traffic, 1 inclusive .uk domain name, 2GB email capacity, and a host of communication features for a dynamic and hard-working website. As the flagship shared hosting plan, the award winning 1&1 Professional package, priced at £11.99/month+VAT during the offer, is ideal for businesses and web professionals alike. It comes equipped with Advanced Web Development Tools, 15 MySQL databases, 20GB web space and 200 GB monthly traffic, as well as 10 inclusive .uk domains.

Oliver Mauss, CEO 1&1 Internet Ltd, said, “As enterprises of all sizes look to reduce IT costs, many may find that they are paying over the odds for existing hosted elements. Often enterprises are aware that efficiencies could be improved by overhauling their web solutions but require a call to action. 1&1’s price reductions aim to be that prompt for businesses to review and upgrade to more efficient solutions”.

1&1’s Server ranges offer some of the highest cost savings. 1&1’s Servers benefit from new QuadCore® AMD Opteron Processors, generous storage capacities, RAID protection, unlimited traffic and 100 MBit bandwidth. During the promotion, the 1&1 Dedicated Enterprise Server II (with 2 x Opteron ‘Barcelona’ 2352 QC processors, 16GB RAM and RAID 5) is currently priced less than half price at only £119.99/month+VAT for the first 6 months, meaning a total saving of £760. The Windows format Enterprise Server II shares the saving, now priced at £129.99/month+VAT. 1&1’s 100 MBit data transfer speed, 10 times faster than some providers, means a 1&1 server can provide 100 simultaneous accesses to web projects without delay, with visitors experiencing no constraints or data collisions.

Ideal for demanding users, 1&1’s Virtual Servers combine great specification with affordability, and are perfect for the academic or non-business developer. For example, the 1&1 Virtual Server XL, now reduced in price to £11.99/month+VAT for first 6 months, features 20GB of hard disk space, 1&1’s 100 MBit connection speed and 2000GB of monthly traffic. Available in both Linux and Microsoft formats, all packages come with the latest version of Plesk and inclusive domains pre-installed.

For the Business user, 1&1’s Managed Servers provide an excellent upgrade from shared hosting. Until 30 June, the 1&1 Managed Business Server II is available at less than half price, £49.99/month+VAT, and delivers Opteron 1218 HE DC processor and 4GB RAM. An excellent feature for small businesses, 1&1’s Unlimited Traffic guarantee means users do not need to worry about surprise traffic bills nor must they keep track of a monthly allowance.

1&1’s hosted eShops are used by thousands of UK enterprises as a highly affordable and scalable ecommerce solution. 1&1’s award-winning £4.99/month Home eShop is now half price at only £2.49/month+VAT for first 6 months, and boasts a new Shop Designer, 100 item capacity and eBay integration. A greater than half price saving is applied to the powerful 1&1 Professional eShop, now £21.99/month+VAT, with Advanced Customer & Pricing Administration and a 20000 item capacity, providing a flexible shop platform for demanding online stores.

Mauss added, “1&1 continues to share in the online success of hundreds of thousands of enterprises. The savings offered should encourage others to expand their activities and drive higher business value from the Web”.

As the world’s largest web host, 1&1 is well placed to provide a high quality service, offering industry-leading 130Gbit connectivity via its own pan-European backbone. 1&1 currently holds over 8 million customer contracts worldwide and manages over 10 million domain names.
