Houston, Texas – (The Hosting News) – December 21, 2007 – Shared, dedicated and reseller web hosting firm, Host Gator, is offering 4,500 free website templates to customers and resellers, covering nearly 120 different types of businesses, designed to enable non-technical building of effective websites.
Brent Oxley, Founder and President of HostGator remarked, ”These templates are free to any Website hosted by HostGator, whether on a shared or dedicated hosting plan, or through a hosting reseller. We want to make hosting domains or building websites as painless as possible, that’s why we offer the free templates. We also offer free Site Builder, one of the easiest tools available for anybody wanting to custom build a website, rather than use a template.”
The free templates cover a broad range of page designs suitable for nearly 120 different types of small and medium-sized businesses – from accountants and auto dealers, to cleaning services, consultants, martial arts studios, toy stores, women’s health clinics, and everything in between. The wide variety of templates makes it easier for resellers to attract people and businesses who want websites, but don’t have the knowledge or design abilities needed to create good looking websites.
Although it’s common for Web hosting companies to offer a variety of perks, including free or low cost Web tools, and even a limited number of templates, Mr. Oxley says the number of free templates HostGator has is far beyond the average, adding, ”I really don’t know of any other large hosting company offering this many templates. We may be setting the trend here.”
To apply the free templates, a reseller or webmaster may browse through the templates, select one or more to use, and they automatically begin downloading to the omputer. Hosting resellers and webmasters are also welcome to modify and HostGator’s templates, so long as the websites remain hosted by HostGator.
As an added feature, resellers can actually mirror HostGator’s templates pages to show to their customers. That makes accessing the templates easy, while maintaining control over who can accesss them.
Mr. Oxley concludes, ”The only restriction is that the templates can’t be sold or distributed for use on websites not hosted by us.”
