The next wave of website evolution is taking place right now. People are realizing that their websites need to be smarter.
SMBs want their websites to be an integral part of how they connect with and serve their customers. These websites update themselves automatically, present different content to different user types, are changed and updated far more often, and provide seamless eCommerce.
The HyperSites™ Builder platform has been designed from the ground up to help you create incredibly powerful, dynamic, and freakishly smart next-generation websites. We'll make you look good.
Fire up your favorite browser and get to work! There are no seat license fees. There's no software to update. Create an unlimited number of user types with different types of access and put everybody to work. A million Shakespeare-typing monkeys should be so lucky.
When faced with a complex site, a lot of web companies cobble together previously used and third party code.
They build the site in their GUI of choice (DreamWeaver, GoLive, etc.) and then add on task-specific code from other sites they've done and/or from 3rd party developers... plugging in an e-commerce engine, forums, photo module, submission forms... you get the idea.
The result? A cobbled together "Frankensite" they don't really understand.
Are you building Frankensites? Ask yourself...
- Were the modules all designed to work together?
- Can people tell by looking at the site that it was stitched together?
- Do you know what to do when tab A stops working with socket B and something breaks? (be honest...)
Say goodbye to Frankensites... and tell those torch-wielding villagers to go home.
If different types of users will be coming to the site, doesn't it make sense that the site should give each type what they want?
With HyperSites™ Builder, you can create as many unique user-types as you want and push different content and pages to each type of user (or even to each user!). Some examples:
- Provide visitors and search engines with general information.
- Have customers log in to see their order history, get special offers, or download files.
- Have employees log in to make changes to the site (globally or to just a single page or type of content), access the Intranet, see traffic stats, view orders, or prepare content for specific customers.
- You can even make entirely different navigation for each user type. Seriously. How cool is that?
Sure. Fresh content gives site visitors a reason to come back... but who has time to update their sites every day?
(Actually, with HyperSites™ Builder, you could give the each department access to modify their own content. While that's unassailably cool, people can still forget to change things as often as they should...)
Far better and more reliable is to come up with a display schedule for site content and set it to run automatically. You might opt to display articles, for example, on a calendar schedule, randomly - or even by things like user rating or the number of clicks something has gotten over a given date range.
Get where we're going with this? Welcome to the next killer app.
What's the biggest difference between the HyperSites™ Builder platform and our template-based CMS competitors?
With HyperSites™ Builder, your site will look how you want it to look!
You don't have to mess with CSS to make your site look good. As a matter of fact, you don't even have to know CSS to build fantastic comp-matching sites.
Bracken - one of the original founders - is a seasoned and very particular designer. His input and force-of-will has ensured that the entire platform is designer-friendly and everything has been built from the ground up to be extremely flexible. If you've ever tried matching a tight design comp with a template-based Content Management System, you know how great this is.
HyperSites™ Builder gives you amazing design flexibility and control, along with all the bonuses you get from using HyperCode to plug in dynamic variables and from having the ability to make pages "subscribe" to user-defined page areas.
HyperSites™ Builder is designed to work with any html 4.0 compliant browser on the planet.
Because sites are generated on-the-fly, we do the work of making sure our rendering engine works with everything.
For those of you who have had to go through sites looking at every single unique page in three or four different web browsers, we have two things to say to you:
- Nice work on getting your clients to pay for that!
- If you're the poor serf who actually had to do that thankless job, take comfort that you'll never have to do it again.
If we ever do encounter an issue with a specific browser, our fix automatically applies to every single site ever built with the HyperSites™ platform.
When you want to modify a piece of code on a complex site, how many people need to be involved?Who has the keys to the websites you build?
HyperSites™ Builder empowers you to do what you do best... design websites. HyperSites™ Builder makes your designs more dynamic.
To pull off complex web sites, many web design companies hire (or rent) additional staff to do the necessary programming, cgi scripting and database work. It's an expensive proposition.
The end result? Assuming everything works correctly at launch, you could still end up with a site which you may not truly understand and it adds another barrier to making changes post-launch.
"The client wants to make a change. Uh... where's that PHP guy's email address?"
Ask yourself a couple of honest questions:
- The programmers you hired for the project?
- Your clients?Now... who do you want to be holding the keys?
HyperSites™ Builder shifts the costs from expensive IT programmers to lower cost content developers and creative designers.
This cost savings allows you to focus on creating a high-quality finished product, without need to pay for high-priced IT manpower. As a designer, it means you don't have to manage outsourcing the gritty stuff - which puts more cash in your pocket.
HyperSites™ is built on a scalable platform, relieving you from the pains of managing servers, software, and storage. We utilize Amazon's S3 platform for delivering your images, which gives them CDN level performance. It's all automatic, and included in the price.
HyperSites™ Builder does the heavy lifting for you. Add features in a fraction of the time it used to take you.
This means you can take longer naps, or fit more into each project. With more time, you can deliver more for each project or even handle more clients.
We include so much in the price of our service that the competition just can't keep up.
All HyperSites™ customers are billed exactly the same way: per page-view. Whether you're a small company with a few hundred page view per month, or a larger corporation with millions, you're billed for what you use.
Sites with less than 1,000 page views per month are free. Completely free. Tools and all.
