Just in time for Veterans Day, Web hosting provider 1&1 is showing its support for the United States troops with the launch of its new Veteran Appreciation Program.
The Appreciation Program provides veteran small business owners with a free 1&1 MyWebsite Plus package for six months. The package helps entrepreneurs quickly create a professional website without the need of software.
"While in service, military men and women risk their lives for their country every day," said Oliver Mauss, CEO of 1&1 Internet. "Therefore, we would like to show our appreciation by offering assistance to them to achieve their new career goals. By providing US veterans a foundation for creating and growing their own business using the Internet, they will be better positioned to conquer the business world."
The 1&1 MyWebsite package comes with a variety of features, including sector specific images and text, optimization for mobile devices and social media functionality. It is important to note that the Veteran Appreciation Program is only available to new customers, and customers will be charged $19.99 a month after the promotion expires. Veterans can sign up for the program by visiting veteran.mywebsite.com and providing an accepted form of military identification upon ordering.
