Welcome to website builder world, where we solve all your online business needs.
We have decreased the cost of a small brochure website with low traffic to only $10 per month. If you are currently on the $15 a month plan, and have less than 10 pages and low web traffic, please go to the accounts tab in website builder, check you are within the new hosting plan rule limits and change your plan to the brochure plan. It's even cheaper if you pay annually.
The hosting cost of all annual plans have also been discounted slightly. Annual plans will save you about 16%.
We have increased our referral discounts. If you recommend to 4 friends to use website builder to build their website, then your web hosting will be free. (Based on equivalent hosting plans).

We have shortened the URLS on products and blog pages, and all unpublished pages. The new shorter URL format looks tidier in web browsers. It is unlikely to produce any greater SEO benefit, but it has been long requested by users that we reduce the size of those dynamic URLs.
We have also implimented 301 redirects from the old URLs to the new URLs so that google will be happy.
We are automatically publishing all websites that have not been published for some time to make note of these changes. But if you are in a hurry, and have not published in the last 2 weeks, you might like to publish your wesite now.
We have changed the default zoom of our mobile templates. Some users were getting very different results on different mobile devices, or different browser types within. We have therefore defaulted to the default zoom of 1, so that there is more consistency between devices.
Your website may need to be published so that the stylesheet and zoom levels are in sync. We will do this for you in any case over the next week or 2.
If you had a custom mobile template, you may need to make changes if you had not previously defined your own mobile view port zoom level. You might like to select one of our default mobile templates again, then reapply any customisations.
If you require personalised training, please contact one of our consultants, who are based all over NZ. Many of our Auckland team can also provide over the phone training at a scheduled time.
We would encourage all customers to get at least one hour of training at the early stages of building their website, and one more review prior to going live, just to give your website that professional critique, and quick tidy up of the rough bits.
Training topics include:
How to use website builder and shopping cart
How to design websites
How to crop and tidy up photos
How to optimise to get your website higher on google and other search engines
How to setup a facebook page, or other social media account
How to send newsletters
How to use any other feature we offer.
Caching speeds up your computer, but it also causes confusion when viewing changes to your website. Every web master needs to become familiar with this concept. Almost a third of all our support tickets relate to mis understandings about caching. We can't change the nature of the internet, we only educate.

If you require training or professional help getting started with your website, please review their portfolios, specials etc and contact a local consultant. We have authorised all our resellers and design consultants to engage with you directly, and bill you directly for their time.
You can see all the available consultants at the following link from all across NZ.
We have teamed up with the awesome 2talk team to offer you some great broadband options. If you have become disgruntled with your current isp, now is the time to get a great bundled broadband offering.
Do you need an 0800 number for your business? We think 2talk provide a really awesome service, and it's who we use. For example, you have an 0800 number call your landline first, then your mobile, then your 2IC's mobile to ensure that somone will take the call. Their rates are cheap, and all the value added services can be managed via a web page control panel, so you don't need to wait on hold for any call centers. You can manage your lines fully yourself.
Did you know that if you refer a friend to use our awesome website builder service, you get a 25% discount off your hosting? If you refer 4 friends, then you will essentially get your web hosting for free! Not only that, but your friends will also get their 2nd month web hosting absolutely free. That's a nice little encouragement for them to check our service out and gives us the opportunity to setup your discount. Both discounts apply for your 2nd and subsequent websites also. It doesn't matter if it is yours, a friend, family or a stranger. Discounts begin once both websites are live. Please make sure you or your friend communicates the referral at the earliest opportunity.
We have an awesome new offer for web designers and awesome business networkers. We can setup any web designer who is interested with all they need to get started as a web designer at no cost:
There are several places you can find answers to questions about how to build your website and add features (which, there are a lot of) and its free for you to look:
If you can't find the answer you need - then get professional help
In 99% of cases the answer to a problem is covered in one (or more) of these places. We always fix bugs fast, with all the users we have we get notified very fast of any real bug - they are not common, so if you are having an issue operating the CMS consider some online training with us - you'll always take something away worth value. In all other cases we are happy to do anything you are having trouble doing yourself for a small fee starting from $20 for 10 minutes.
