Reserve site content for membersOne of the best features of doombyPLUS is the ability to create a website with a dedicated content area for your site members. Filtering access to certain site pages, reserving them for your registered site members, adds value to your site. It also ensures you keep a tight control over who sees what, by applying it to page comments or blog posting, and is a great way to share the workload of your daily site management.

Overwhelmed by the spirit of giving, we've decided to make it cheaper to make a website with all the (Christmas) bells and whistles, and to register a domain name.

Aren't you lucky?

100 billion (or so) reasons you should think about e-commerce

Did you ever wonder just what the big deal with e-commerce is? Let me help you. Try to imagine a business selling stuff that's been around for a long time (i.e. established products in an established market). Picked one? Good. Now picture that business experiencing double-digit sales growth - year in, year out – just because the owners of that business chose to make a website to sell their stuff online. By now, you should start to get an idea of why, even today, some people still tend to get a little excited at the mere mention of the word.

So I'll mention it, just for you: “e-commerce”. There, excited?
