Content Management AG (CM-AG), a leading provider of web-based applications and value-added services, is proud to announce that Hostnet has successfully launched a Dutch-language version of CM4all Sites under the product name Website Maker. Founded in 1999, Hostnet is one of the leading hosting providers in the Netherlands, serving more than 190,000 customers and managing 700,000 registered domains.
"We have fully leveraged the OEM customization options available in CM4all Sites and can now offer a state-of-the-art website builder that meets the specific requirements of all our target groups. At the same time, we benefit from highly automated account provisioning thanks to the successful Parallels APS integration CM-AG realized in close cooperation with us. With the APS application, new users simply activate Website Maker in our control panel and can start to create their website right away," explains Merijn de Brabander, Business Manager at Hostnet.
Thanks to CM-AG's powerful content management core, mobile websites can be created for iOS and Android smart phones directly within CM4all Sites. A well-structured menu allows users to precisely define which parts of the existing content they want to adopt and whether they want to add a mobile start page. When activated, CM4all Sites automatically publishes the mobile website and the desktop version simultaneously.
CM4all Sites delivers numerous additional innovations, including an instant setup page, an enhanced WYSIWYG editor, and a comprehensive file browser with an interactive drop zone. Thanks to CM4all's new widget technology, users at all levels can integrate sophisticated features into their websites ranging from contact forms through photo galleries to social media connectivity with Facebook®, Twitter® and Google+™. Additionally, CM4all Sites is designed with an open widget API. Combined with the new Widget Developer Network, this enables the integration of third-party services and allows for continuous development of widgets by CM-AG, OEM partners, and external software engineers.
"The hosting market in the Netherlands is very competitive, so we are excited that a successful OEM partner like Hostnet is bringing our latest site building innovations to the market. Our newly developed Parallels APS module helped shorten integration times for Hostnet once the project started. It also presents another option for existing and new OEM partners in addition to the custom integration work usually performed in our implementation projects," says Robert Schovenberg, CEO of Content Management AG.
As is standard with all CM4all products, the user interface of CM4all Sites was adapted to Hostnet's corporate design. CM-AG safeguards the software's availability with 24/7 support and continuously updates both the operating system and the software application.
