Services And Features
With Site Creator, there are 2 plans to choose from. Both include the industry standards such as a free email address, free SSL, unlimited traffic and 99.9% uptime guarantee. An impressive feature which makes them stand out from the crowd and is also included in both plans is a free domain for life, which translates as free for the lifetime of your subscription with them.
Their Standard plan is ideal for newcomers to site building and web hosting, providing all the essential features without overcomplicating things. Their top plan is called eCommerce and is best suited for people looking to sell products online. It includes a wide range of payment options for online payments and shopping cart styles as well as a second free email address and VIP Support.
Once you’ve decided on the right feature set for you, Site Creator directs you to choose your domain name. You can register a new domain for free from a wide list of TLDs or choose to use a domain you already own. It’s worth highlighting at this stage that they provide an impressive money-back guarantee and all your information is protected by 256-bit secure SSL encryption.
