Your hosting package comes with the option to install Trendy Site Builder Lite. This would normally cost $79 per year, but is inclusive with your hosting package. Trendy builds crazy visual Flash based websites. With the Lite version, you are limited to a five page website. You can upgrade directly with the software developer to a Premium version if you find you need more pages.
Use gallery to build and display interactive photo albums. Your creativity can make gallery not just a way to display professional photography or family photos, but a gorgeous interactive way to display products, medical photos with descriptions of procedures, exercise photos with write-ups on how and why, a tourism website, etc. If photos are a part of your story, Gallery can tell it better.

Site Builders & Add-On Functions
Brazzell's premium hosting account gives you easy access to site builder software as well as a number of add-on applications that can add a wide range of functions to your website. Even though many of these applications would cost you $240 per year or greater if you were to buy them individually, they are inclusive at no extra charge with your premium hosting account. Would any of these functions be of value to your website?

Ownership: As always, when you host with Brazzell Marketing Agency, you have the maximum possible ownership of your code. If you ever need to move your website and functions to a different host, this is possible with the applications we present. (Note: some applications that are "free" through us will cost you a membership fee if you host elsewhere.)
How to Install: In the control panel of your hosting account, look at the Software / Services section near the bottom. Choose Fantastico De Lux or Quick Install. Choose an application to install on your website from the list on the left. Follow the on-screen instructions. The application will automatically install. Launch Video Tutorial
How to Remove: Open the service you used to install the software (Fantastico or Quick Install). Select the software you want to remove from the list on the left. In the message on the center, choose "remove" or "uninstall." We told you it was easy.
Site Builders: The general term for site builders is "content management systems" or CMS. CMS are interfaces that allow users to build fully functional websites without knowing hypertext markup language. Some CMS are so powerful and multi-functional that professional designers specialize in using them exclusively. However, as with anything in life, the more options you have, the greater the learning curve. "Site Builders" are a type of CMS that usually walk you through the process of getting a website online with a bare minimum of learning curve, but also with limited options later on. If you're looking for a website that displays your logo, talks about your services, and encourages people to call, site builders are the way to go. For site builders, we recommend that you first look at Soholaunch Pro in Fantastico. For a 'flashier' website, look at Trendy Site Builder in Quick Install.
Content Management Systems & Add-On Functions: The choice between site builders and content management systems is not always an either or. You can build the main pages of your website using a professional designer or site builder and then add features to folders or subdomains in your hosting account. From the customer's perspective, it's all one website, but with different sections. For instance, you can add a blog section to the website using WordPress, add a photo gallery to your existing website using Gallery, or add a poll / survey to your website using LimeSurvey.
Industry Specialized Solutions: Site builders specialized for particular types of businesses and organizations.
Support: Brazzell Marketing Agency will provide support related to the installation of any of these products. When it comes to getting the most out of these products after they are installed, consider this. Because all of these features have hundreds, thousands, and even millions of users, you will often find robust peer to peer support networks through online forums. At your discretion, BMA can provide paid support for design, customization, and integration for many of these products. For paid support on non-installation technical issues, we will sometimes refer you to product manufacturers where paid support is also available.
