OnlineStorage

Online storage has revolutionized how information is backed up and accessed, such as critical documents, photos and other files. 1&1’s Online Storage package accomplishes this by automatically backing up your computer’s important data.

One of the most critical uses for cloud storage, however, is being able to access your files from anywhere, saving you the hassle of remembering to transfer them to your mobile or tablet before you leave home or the office. Install the 1&1 Mobile Online Storage app on your Android or iOS device, and you’ll never have to worry about bringing key files with you again.

One Week Until .NYC! New York City Businesses Can Register Their Exclusive New TLD on October 8

NYC-TLD

One week from today, on October 8th, the brand new .NYC top-level domain (TLD) enters the general availability phase. At that point, anyone with a physical address in one of New York City’s five boroughs can register a brand new Web address for their website.

As one of the first city-specific top-level domains (TLD) to be launched, .NYC is poised to become one of the most popular domain extensions available, so businesses are encouraged to grab their desired domain name as soon as possible. Currently, 1&1 offers pre-registration for .NYC in anticipation of its official launch. Pre-registrations with 1&1 are on an exclusive first-come, first-served basis, which means no other 1&1 customers are able to pre-register a domain option that has been previously chosen by another party.
