I started my first website in 1998 using Geocities’ free platform that allowed me to easily build pages by filling out some basic information.
Quickly I started to see the limitations and realized if I wanted to have anything “unique” I was going to have to learn how to code HTML as well as some other scripting libraries.
This took countless hours but the pay off was great.
For many years I was dead against page builders because my own experience. I thought it would be impossible to have a professional looking website without knowing how to code or at least basic knowledge of HTML.
This started to change for me as WordPress began to evolve from a simple blogging platform to a complete content management system (CMS). Rather than spending weeks building a website, WordPress could do everything with some simple steps.
Time Is Valuable
Unlike 1998, I’m now married and have three (soon-to-be) four kids. I completely understand how valuable time is as there simply isn’t enough hours in the day to do things like I could when I was 13.
Relating back to our customers here at NameHero, I understand many of them have hectic schedules such as mine; it’s impossible to dedicated a couple extra hours a day learning how to code, especially when tools exist to automate the entire process.
Since starting NameHero in late 2014 we’ve placed a huge emphasis on WordPress. It’s free, open-source, and undoubtedly the most used content management system out there. It’s no longer just used for individuals blogging, but powers some of the world’s largest websites!
We plan to continue on this path, making optimizations daily to better serve the masses that depend on WordPress to power their websites.
But is that the only option?
A Simple WordPress Alternative
WordPress is great; I’ll always recommend it as my first choice! However, it’s by far not the only option out there.
Over the last couple of years we’ve seen some companies such as Wix and Squarespace experience enormous growth!
This tells us that there is in-fact a demand for other tools besides WordPress.
After spending many months researching and consulting with active NameHero customers we have all agreed it’s time to bring something else to the table.
I also got a taste of this first hand during a recent tutorial on how to register a domain name for your children.
During this tutorial, I showed how to put up a one page “placeholder” using cPanel’s default publisher.
For this project, installing a copy of WordPress and maintaining it would be complete overkill. I wanted a quick and easy one page website that requires absolutely zero maintenance (no updates, security measures, etc.).
Unfortunately the cPanel Publisher wasn’t necessarily easy. If you watch the video in the link above, you’ll see I kinda had to fight it to make updates, even having to flush my browser cache for them to show up.
This just solidified my evidence that another option was needed here at NameHero.
Start Quickly With WebsiteTitan
We’re proud to announce the launch of our WebsiteTitan Free Web Page Builder on all new Web Hosting accounts.
In partnership with the fine folks over at SitePad, users can now quickly build and deploy their websites right inside of cPanel -> WebsiteTitan:
There is no software to install, no database to create. Simply open up the editor, select your theme, and start building! There are over 350+ professional themes to choose from and no up-sells!
Drag, Drop, Select, & Create
Once you have your professional template selected, you can easily begin customizing every aspect of your website.
Simply select areas to edit and drag and drop elements onto your page:
If you notice on the left of the screenshot above, you can many different types of rich media to your page. Images, videos, audio, pricing tables, icons, countdown timers, etc.
There is no complex configuration needed and no plugins to add/maintain. Drag what you want directly onto your page, customize the look/feel, and you’re ready to go!
I’ve never seen a contact form added so quickly without having to worry about endless configurations and styling!
There Are No Limits To What You Build
I hate up-selling.
If you follow us on YouTube you know I frequently mention we designed our hosting packages to have all the features you need to immediately begin building your website.
There is nothing worse than having to “purchase” an extra feature to get something as simple as a SSL certificate.
Therefore we’ve followed this same concept with WebsiteTitan. You can create an unlimited number of pages as well as websites (as long as you’re within the website limit on the package you purchased).
WebsiteTitan uses your hosting package! This mean you have ALL the same features as you would any other website (SSD Raid 10, LiteSpeed Web Server, Free and Auto SSL, Complimentary Nightly Backups, Cloudflare w/Railgun, etc.).
Once you click ‘Publish’ inside the editor it automatically takes all the pages you’ve build and uploads them directly inside of your web hosting package.
Easily go back to edit pages and re-upload only where you’ve made changes!
You Still Can Use WordPress
Unlike Wix, Squarespace, etc. where they limit you only to their editor, you still have the freedom to use whatever software you’d like!
This means if you still want to use WordPress in another directory or on a subdomain, you can! It’s your hosting package; you’re in FULL control!
If you so choose, you can also login to cPanel -> File Manager and view/download your files. It’s your website!
Despite optimizing heavily for software such as WordPress we never want to limit our customers on what they can do with their website.
I know first-hand how important it is to have flexibility as no business is alike. You don’t have to worry about being at the mercy of NameHero!
Blazing Fast + Blog Built In
As mentioned, WebsiteTitan publishes your website right inside of your hosting package with us.
Therefore you’re getting the exact same features you would if using software such as WordPress, but without a database, your website will load even faster.
WebsiteTitan also has a built-in blog section, so if you have a dynamic website that needs constant updates, you can quickly and easily create those posts:
The Media Library gives you the ability to upload and store all the images you need for your website and quickly import them into your pages.
I’ve filmed a video tutorial where I walk you through the features of WebsiteTitan and display how quick and easy it is to get started:
You’ll want to make sure you’re subscribed to our YouTube Channel as I plan on releasing an entire series of videos to get very specific behind the many features of WebsiteTitan.
