According to the press release, SiteDesigner has been created for customers with a wide range of technical knowledge. Beginners with no technical knowledge can use drag and drop tools to create a website, and experienced web designers can use the advanced tools to build a more complex website.
This announcement comes two months after Heart Internet started offering StopTheHacker’s website security services.
Web hosts that want to offer website builders without building one from scratch are opting to use white label platforms like BaseKit. On Monday, Hostway partnered with website builder WebsPlanet.
Recently, BaseKit partnered with web hosting provider HostGator to offer its customers more than 100 professionally designed templates, which are customizable through HTML and CSS. BaseKit websites can be used for ecommerce storefronts, and users can add Facebook, Twitter, Google Maps and more through a drap and drop function.
“We believe SiteDesigner is a major step forward for online web builder products,” Heart Internet director Jonathan Brealey said in a statement. “Every pixel can be customised to the customer’s needs, and the easy to use drag and drop system makes building a beautiful website a reality for non-designers. Additionally, SiteDesigner can be used by professional website designers to speed up how long it takes to launch a great looking website.”
Heart Internet is offering the SiteDesigner builder starting from $9.50 per month, including web hosting.
Resellers can offer SiteDesigner to clients with a 25 percent discount off the monthly price.
