Weebly Offers New Revenue Stream for Hosts
DIY website builder Weebly has announced a solution for Web hosts and domain registrars that will allow them to provide their own website creation service and e-commerce platform to their customer base.
With Weebly for Hosts, hosting companies are able to publish their customer sites on their own servers and give their customers the ability to easily create a website, blog or online store with Weebly’s editor. They also have the option of providing their customers with Weebly’s core packages, including free, starter, pro and business accounts, so that customers can easily purchase a domain from the hosting company and build out a website that fits their criteria within minutes.
This is cost saving for the customer and creates a new revenue stream for the hosts. Weebly for Hosts is a turnkey solution that requires minimal IT implementation and management on the part of hosting customers, and features a centralized dashboard that allows hosts to add staff and manage permissions, as well as comprehensive customer support provided by Weebly.
“We’re really excited about opening up the Weebly platform to hosting companies and making easy website creation accessible to a broader audience of millions,” said David Rusenko, CEO and co-founder of Weebly. “Last month we announced Weebly for Enterprise, which lets organizations customize Weebly and leverage our CMS to empower their employees and customers at scale. Today, we’re following up with Weebly for Hosts, giving Web hosts and domain registrars a complete solution to offer Weebly to their customers on their terms.”
