WEBSITE BUILDER NEWS AND FEATURE UPDATES
Monday, June 28 2010
System Update: 4.17
Website builder interface
The new website builder interface will now be the default for newly created trials. Existing customers can continue to use the old website builder to create a website and all customers will still be able to choose between both versions of the wesite builder interface.
Website builder plans
We are making adjustments to the default website builder plans. These adjustments will include increased disk space and email accounts at all plan levels. We will be sending more information with the new plan details shortly.
More and more internet users are using mobile devices such as the iPhone or Android. This release will include support for adding mobile optimised pages. Customers can create new pages that are designed to work on advanced mobile devices.
When browsing to a website on a mobile device, the visitor will be presented wtih a message asking if they would like to view the mobile version of the website. For customers where we host their DNS settings, we are automatically setting up entries such as http://mobile.domainname.com to allow visitors a way to go directly to the mobile website home page.
The mobile support is not for all mobile devices. It is designed to work with advanced mobile smartphones such as the iPhone and Android based devices that have full HTML support (we are not supporting WAP based phones).
Secure forms (may require a plan upgrade)
With the secure forms upgrade, you can use the form builder to collect form information over a secure https:// page. The data that is submitted is saved in the site admin. and can be viewed when logged into the site over a secure (https) URL.
AppDB (may require plan upgrade)
Use the AppDb feature to setup a searchable/sortable data table. You can define your own custom fields when setting up the data table. To create a new AppDb go to the page list and click the AppDb page type.
System features and updates
We hope you like the new and improved features to help you create a website!
