CafeId.com went live September 16 with version 3.8 of the SiteBuildingSystem Linux-based server-side hosting application. The SiteBuildingSystem is a collection of Internet tools that provides a standards-based framework for managing interaction with domain-name registrars, administering user and partner accounts, doing credit card billing, reporting, website statistics and providing live support.
Version 3.8 includes enhancements in website theme selection, versatility of the e-mail administration system including the addition of aliases used for forwarding as well as to the overall stability and smoothness of operation of the SiteBuildingSystem. Customers may now upgrade their level of service at will from Domain Parking only to Domain+E-mail accounts to full-blown Domain/E-mail/Website packages as their needs change.
A significant feature is the availability of Web Designer accounts. By signing up for or moving to a Web Designer account, customers with an entrepreneurial flair are enabled to create a website for a prospective customer. They can then publish it so that the prospective customer can view it from anywhere on the Web and then transfer the website to the customer once she has signed up with an account of her own.
CafeId.com is the home of the SiteBuildingSystem, offering businesses and individuals an all-in-one solution for building and hosting their Online Identity. We leave it up to the customer to determine the way they want to be presented on the Net and how their website should look, while we take care of all the red tape. We do domain-name registration, billing, IMAP e-mail hosting with a 128-bit secure web mail interface, website hosting, server-side anti-spam and anti-virus filtering, secure certificates and, most notably, live online support.
We also make it as easy for other businesses to resell our technology to customers of their own. Our system is ideal for:
Â Home-based businesses or small businesses that simply need an attractive, flexible presence on the web.
Â Medium-sized businesses that can partner with us to offer a customized solution to clients or other business partners. Portal partners need only place on their existing websites four links into the SiteBuildingSystem to offer all the functionality weÂre describing to their customers.
They can customize outgoing e-mail messages and have an administration section for tracking their profits.
Â Value-added resellers (VARs) who want to provide website design, hosting, domain registration, e-mail hosting and e-commerce services. This is a hot sector to be in now and going forward, as websites and e-mail becomes as essential to businesses as FAX machines and coffee makers.
Â Affiliates whoÂd like to offer the SiteBuildingSystem to their websiteÂs audience through a well-placed banner ad in exchange for a healthy percentage of the initial payment (our Affiliate Program is up and running as of the release of 3.8).
Â Franchises and non-profit organizations who'd like to maintain a consistent appearance across a number of far-flung websites, each of which would have the ability to be fine-tuned for their local audiences while retaining the overall character of the parent organization. To that end, we will custom-build website themes for your organization that your franchisees or local offices will use in the construction of their local websites. The themes will come complete with consistent, built-in links to your main websiteÂs pages, but will also be customizable on the fly by a local administrator without needing to pay for changes.
At the heart of the SiteBuilidingSystem framework is the Flash-based Site Editor, a revolutionary tool that allows the construction of a complete, attractive website right online using familiar, easy-to-use word-processing-like methods. Customers can access the Site Editor from any Internet-connected computer with Flash 6 or greater installed and make updates to their website on-the-fly! An HTML site is also produced automatically to facilitate viewing by visitors without Flash installed as well as indexing by search engines spiders. E-mail is hosted using the IMAP protocol, which integrates easily with Outlook and other e-mail and groupware packages while offering the ability to store e-mail on a central, secure server with server-side protection against spam and viruses.
It really is easy and affordable to establish a first-class Online Identity using the SiteBuildingSystem through CafeId.com, and for
partners to make this capability available to their customers as well. We work constantly to improve this experience, to incorporate feedback from customers and partners and to improve the SiteBuildingSystem itself. Watch this space! Version 3.9 is already in the works.
We'd like for you to check us out at http://www.cafeid.com and take a
