Do you ever wish the process of getting online was simpler? Are you in year three of “launch website” being on your to-do list? Are you a solo-prenuer, small business, community group, or passion project enthusiast that needs a simple, great looking, mobile-friendly web presence?
If you responded “yes” to any or all of the above questions, you’ll want to check out our new one-page website builder called LiteSite.
What is LiteSite?
Everything You Need for an Easy, Fast and Professional One-Page Web Presence
New from Webnames.ca, LiteSite is a complete one-page web presence. If you’re thinking, “web presence, what do they mean by that?”, allow us to explain. For as little as $2.95/month, or free* with select domain extensions, LiteSite gives users everything they need to get online, including:
Powerful, 1-Page Website Builder - LiteSite features 5 elegant, responsive templates designed for entrepreneurs, businesses, and projects of all kinds. After selecting your template, you can further customize your page layout with an intuitive drag and drop editor, and when you’re ready, add content in a WYSIWIG fashion just like your favourite word processor. Other features include an HTML editor, SEO tools, image gallery, and support for social media, videos, maps, images and more!
Domain Name - Choose from 500+ domain options, or use LiteSite with an existing domain in your Webnames account. Our favourite LiteSite pairing for Canadians is a .CA domain, as it signals to search engines the relevancy of your website to a local, regional and national audiences. Plus, all .CA domain registered by individual users include domain privacy for free.
Professional Domain-Based Email - Say goodbye to generic email that promotes somebody else’s business and brand. Every LiteSite includes a custom email account (eg., firstname.lastname@example.org, or whatever your heart desires) for professional, branded communications. The 500 MB free account is protected by powerful anti-virus and anti-spam filters and is seamlessly upgradeable should you need more room.
HTTPS Security - A secure website shows visitors that you’re trustworthy and increases confidence in your legitimacy. That’s why all LiteSite websites are automatically protected with HTTPS through a pre-installed LetsEncrypt SSL Certificate. Not only will traffic to and from your website be encrypted, plus a number of other advantages, you’ll never have to worry about your visitors seeing those scary “Not Secure” warnings in their browser next to your domain.
Secure 100% Canadian Hosting - Like all of Webnames products, LiteSite is hosted on 100% Canadian servers, which means all of your data stays in Canada, where it's protected by Canada’s more stringent privacy requirements.
Friendly Customer Support - Did we mention that there is a great team, fluent in both English and French, standing by to support you through your LiteSite build and beyond? Call us to get your custom email set-up, or for assistance using any of LiteSite’s features.
Create a LiteSite Website in Under an Hour
One of the best things about LiteSite is how fast and easy to build. Really, you could do it from your smartphone on your commute if you wanted to, all without your coffee getting cold. Just choose your responsive template, drop in the relevant information you want to share, upload some images of your own or our built-in gallery, add a logo, publish!
Voila, you have a website. Of course, it always helps to have a gameplan, so to get the most out of your LiteSite, we’ve created helpful how-to’s explaining how to achieve the best results.
But Really, it’s Just One Page?
Yup, the website is just one page … but with a whole lot packed in behind the scenes as you’ve just read above.
Why? We have learned over the years that a one-page website is all that many individuals and small businesses want. Thousands of customers who have told us that getting a DIY website online is a major stumbling block for them. They either don’t know what platform to use, don’t feel like they are sufficiently skilled, or are generally unsure of how to make it all go. Also, plenty of folks don’t need or want anything elaborate. They simply want to share essential information about their business or services, be it in text, image or video format, and have people be able to find them in a search engine, learn what they have to offer, and contact them online.
And really, who can argue with that logic given that the average web user sticks around a webpage for about 15-seconds these days before moving on.
Costs Less Than a Coffee / Free with Select Domains
LiteSite is included free with select, regular priced domains at Webnames.ca, including.CA, .COM, and more, on Classic accounts. On promotionally-purchased domains, and Gold or Platinum tier accounts, LiteSite can be added for $2.95/month or, in many cases, less.
Webnames Classic Accounts with domains that have free LiteSite can start building by choosing the LiteSite option on their domain name in the Manage Domains page in their Webnames Account.
