Host Color Adds Site Builder to All Hosting Plans
Host Color (hostcolor.com) has launched its new WebSite Builder software. The software is developed by Host Color programmers using open sourse components such as the TinyMCE html editor. Customers with Host Color hosting accounts will be able to use the online tool to create a functional website in minutes.
The idea of the WebSite Builder is to enable people with little or no technical expertice to publish their website without the need of any additional software. The Builder lets users choose colors, fonts and basic layout for their site. Users can enter content for different sections of their site through an online WYSIWYG editor.
Once the site content is ready the website is uploaded automatically. The published version of the website is saved automatically so later customers can return to the Builder and edit and re-arrange their content.
"When creating our software we have been aiming at maximum ease-of-use, functionality and flexibility. We aim to provide tools for customers of all backgrounds and experience. This new offer is mainly for novice users and we are sure they will find it useful. Host Color however also offers many advanced tools such as pre-installed Mambo Content Management System, WorldPress Blog software and phpBB Forum. We are now in a stage of very rapid development and customers can expect much more quality tools for their online presence before the end of the year." says Host Color's Executive Director Vesselin Drangajov.
The hosting company has also announced that it extents its .CA and .US domain registration promotion until December 31 2005.
