London, United Kingdom – MacMate, the UK-based tech company who stepped in to provide a replacement hosting service to hundreds of thousands of iWeb users when Apple withdrew its iWeb offering in 2012, today launches its brand new online Web Builder (v3.1). Re-engineered to give small businesses the opportunity to build a full-featured and professional online site within their web browser using point-and-click designs and layout blocks.
Once activated, users can choose from a selection of over 3000 theme and palette combinations and add useful features like maps, contact forms and even a fully-featured shop module with just a few clicks and no extra charges.
As well as providing an affordable way for customers to build their own site rather than use a web designer, it’s a marked shift from popular application-based web building with software like iWeb and Rapidweaver – removing the need for any software or web skills. Online Web Building is the new way to quickly and easily build a website. One of the key benefits of MacMate’s Web Builder is the price point: at only GBP4.99 / $5.99 per month, it’s at least half the price of comparable packages from Wix or Weebly. As well as an easy way to build a website, MacMate have experienced internet and Mac-specific support available around the clock.
“Web Builder is designed for and targeted at small businesses and individuals who need to create a great looking website on a budget – but without compromising the look and functionality of the site. Now at version three, we think we’ve achieved that objective in buckets – the feedback so far has been amazing and we’re already working on enhancements” Gary Hall, founder and CEO.
MacMate Web Builder comes with 10GB of cloud storage and one business-class 10GB email address – more of both can be added easily, as well as the ability to easily add additional websites as either Web Builder sites, HTML or WordPress. Setup of the free 30-day trial is instant so users can build their website before committing or adding any payment details.
All sites themes are fully responsive so they look great on mobile or desktop right out of the box and are fully customisable from moving elements, adding pictures, adding galleries, newsletters, knowledge-base sections, voting polls and e-commerce options to name but a few. The shop module allows users to instantly fire up an online shop, integrated with Paypal so cards can be accepted with the order admin process all handled effortlessly. In fact, all that’s needed is a PayPal username or email address to start taking payments immediately.
“Small businesses and startups love the fact they can build their site and have it hosted professionally – all at one easy monthly fee – and safe in the knowledge that a company with a solid reputation here to help and assist.”
