1&1 Internet Ltd. Key Developments

1&1 Internet Signs Deal to Register New TLDs

1&1 Internet announced that it has signed an agreement wit ICANN to act as a registrar for new top-level-domains (TLDs). As a result, 1&1 will be able to offer customers over 700 new TLDs. These will provisionally be available to both private and business customers from October.

1&1 Internet Ltd. Launches Social Media Hub for Management of Popular Social Media Platforms

1&1 Internet Ltd. launched Social Media Hub designed to enhance social media activities for 1&1 MyWebsite customers. The two elements of the hub, 1&1 Social Page Creator and 1&1 Social Media Manager, enable SMBs to grow awareness and engage with end customers via the popular online platforms Facebook and Twitter. The solution allows users to create a Facebook page effortlessly by replicating MyWebsite content into a Facebook page automatically. Business owners can now increase customer interactions by updating and scheduling their posts simultaneously across multiple social media platforms directly within 1&1s Social Media Manager tool. At a special offer price of 4.99/month, Social Media Hub comprises an affordable and convenient way to conduct consistent social media communications. Most business owners recognise that social media channels are a useful way to raise awareness for a business. Furthermore, search engines are now relying more heavily on social media likes, shares and tweets within their SEO algorithm, making it even more challenging for SMBs to attract traffic and sales leads. A lack of time and skill can often lead many companies to fail to fully leverage valuable social channels. As part of its constant enhancements to its MyWebsite, 1&1 has developed a solution for simplifying and achieving greater efficiency in the way small businesses can communicate on social media. The 1&1 Social Page Creator designs a professional Facebook page based upon website content. Business name, website headers, logos, contact details and additional site content are quickly synchronised with Facebook to create a business page similar to that of a businesss website. Within the tool, SMBs can also create customised Facebook tabs specific to individual pages of the website. A simple on/off slider enables any subpage to sync with Facebook and create unique, custom tabs. All elements of Social Page Creator can be edited directly within the 1&1 MyWebsite editor tool to eliminate the need for multiple logins. Once a Facebook page is created, all updates made to a MyWebsite are also automatically revised on the social media page as well. For example, if a restaurant wishes to include a new Special on their website each day, the changes are instantly made to their Facebook page. Such consistency across multiple online outlets helps to ensure accuracy and build online branding. 1&1s Social Media Hub is a further example of how 1&1 actively advises small businesses on how to achieve a successful eBusiness strategy. Starting today, 1&1 MyWebsite customers can add the 1&1 Social Media Hub to their MyWebsite package with 1 month free and currently a special offer price of 4.99/month thereafter.
