September 2, 2010 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – 1&1 Internet Ltd
, the world's largest web host, today announced that its hosting packages are now offered with free professional web design software. Depending on the chosen hosting package, new customers will receive full versions of either NetObjects Fusion 1&1 Edition or Adobe Dreamweaver CS4. Both solutions allow easy creation of a website optimised for mobile viewing.
NetObjects Fusion 1&1 Edition is exclusive to 1&1 customers and especially suitable for beginners. This powerful website design application, included free with 1&1 Beginner Package, (priced from £2.49/month+VAT), 1&1 Home Package, (from £2.49/month+VAT for first 6 months, £4.99/month+VAT thereafter), and 1&1 Business Package, (from £3.99/month+VAT for first 6 months, £8.99/month+VAT thereafter), provides a great variety of templates which are already optimised for handheld viewing and navigation. All templates can be implemented into a homepage with ease. Even users without prior Internet experience can either create a new, modern website in just a few minutes or adapt an existing web presence to be mobile compatible.
Customers selecting the 1&1 Business Pro Package, (priced from £14.99/month+VAT) and 1&1 Professional Package (currently £11.99/month+VAT for first 6 months, £24.99/month+VAT thereafter) can alternatively choose to receive Adobe Dreamweaver CS4. With this premium solution, advanced users can apply their own HTML code. This software includes the Adobe Device Central module that enables testing for the latest mobile devices. In doing so, users can ensure their website is fully optimised for mobile visitors.
The smaller screen and touch functionality of mobile devices can often make it necessary to adapt the design of websites. Furthermore, a significantly higher number of operating systems and browsers have to be supported as compared to local hardware like PCs.
Oliver Mauss, CEO 1&1 Internet Ltd., said "Many websites have not yet reached the Smartphone age. As a result, small firms in particular can miss a massive opportunity. Businesses must ensure that when their website is viewed on a mobile, it loads promptly, functions correctly and comprises an attractive and fitting representation of them".
1&1 currently offers its Home, Business and Professional web hosting packages at a 50 per cent reduction in price for the first 6 months. All new customers who order hosting packages (in either Linux or Microsoft formats) during September and October will receive NetObjects Fusion 1&1 Edition or Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 for free. Existing 1&1 customers are able to download both professional web design solutions for a special price, directly from their 1&1 Control Panel.
