Content Management

Just want to make a few changes to your website? Keep your current design but take your website to the next level...

Content Management

Content Management is pretty much what it says... an ability to manage the content on your website... YOURSELF. Holistic Hosting's superior webhosting platform gives every client* the ability to update the content of their web pages. This includes adding, removing and changing text, photographs and other media using our easy, online editor.

Our CMS system allows you to make quick and easy updates. Just point, click and edit your pages!

Update your site quickly and easily using a live editor. View your website just like your customer will - and actively edit the content as you go.  Yes, there is full access to the HTML code if you need it. Make bold things bold, align your text according to your design style, change and realign photos and graphics.  You can manage your text and images yourself, easily.

Keep your website's design consistent and up-to-date

Where possible your website designer can set up site-wide templates for your website within our system.  This allows you to keep the professional website design you paid for on every page you create or edit, keeping your professional look and feel on every page!

Social Networking... time to start?

We KNOW how effective Social Networking is!  With our superior management system it is possible to easily create and control any number of blogs and broadcast your message using RSS feeds.  (This means you can 'feed' the information to other third-party services which re-broadcast your message. To do this you'll probably need either our help or the help of your web specialist, and fees are likely to apply). 

Available CMS Plans & Features (below)

Depending on what level of CMS you require, we can support you in growing your business online! These are our current hosting plans:

WebBronze + CMS Plan
Price: 25.50 per month
WebSilver - eMarketing + CMS
Price: $42.50 per month
WebGold - eCommerce + CMS
Price: $75.50 per month

Our Content Management system can update more than text and photos...

Manage announcements (holistic-eMarketing), use or sell advertising on an Ad Rotator module, easily create great looking Photo Galleries (holistic-eMarketing), easy to manage FAQs (holistic-eCommerce), or create a Web App (holstic-eCommerce) to display any type of content you like.

The only limit is your imagination!  See below for specifics. ((You may require our support to configure some of these options, though all of them are built in to the hosting plans and can be configured by anyone with access.  We do not offer support for self-configured enhancements. 

Control who sees what.  Want to offer paid-for access?
[eMarketing Plan and above]

It is possible to make any part of your online business website into a Secure Zone, assigning any number of customers unique usernames and passwords.   You can use this to keep private information secure, or even sell access to a Secure Zone to customers, on a one-off or subscription basis.  (You can create secure zones yourself, but you may need the support of a web specialist to set up secure-zone payment access.  Subscription fees can be automated but require a payment gateway and internet merchant account with your bank. We can support you in getting the right gateway. Give us a call to discuss this.)

Event Management

Take bookings for events online, automatically.  Limit the number of registrations, send out pre and post-event eMails pre-set, ready to go at the time you've set them to be delivered.  Imagine, a few days before your event having a reminder email sent to all of the participants of your upcoming event... "We look forward to seeing you in a few days..."  ... and then another brief eMail the day before the event saying "See you tomorrow!".   And perhaps another eMail 1week later... "How have you been since the event?"  etc... 

((Though this feature is built in to our eCommerce Packages and above, you will almost certainly require our support to set this system up. We charge by the hour at $165p/h for custom configuration.  This system can take up to 6 hours to configure to your unique requirements - and to give you a tutorial of how it works.  Custom Configuration is not included in your setup or hosting fees and is an additional fee if you require this service.))
