World-class designs appeal to every vertical
In January 2005 Hostopia will introduce a gigantic online catalog of 1,000 fully developed website templates, meticulously crafted for dozens of industry verticals. Business end users and professional web site designers will have dozens of professional-looking web site designs for every conceivable business type to speed their site design, creation and publishing as well improve the look, feel and quality of websites placed on the Internet today.
"Web site templates have become a mini-category in their own right," says Franc Nemanic, Hostopia’s president. "The problem is that high-quality templates come with significant cost, particularly for site designers who have to acquire dozens if not hundreds of them. Hostopia has bundled its templates into its managed hosting making these tools affordably accessible to any business or site designer. "
Hostopia’s templates were commissioned to a global network of award-winning advertising agencies, creative houses and designers. Thousands of draft designs were eliminated yielding the highest quality finalists. Template sites were further coded to exacting standards so any designer can use them as is or edit them as required.
"We are excited to be first company within the industry to invest in and offer agency caliber web templates bundled into our hosting plans," says Nemanic. "The majority of companies today simply do not have the hundreds of thousands of dollars or resources required to acquire a database of this magnitude and develop the number of templates that we have."
Each template can be downloaded into any HTML-based editor such as FrontPage and can support some of today’s cutting edge technologies such as Macromedia’s Flash and Dreamweaver products.
Brian Singh, Hostopia’s senior product manager elaborates, "Each template offers compelling graphics and intuitive navigational structure. Actual site copy is pre-written for each industry vertical relieving the site designer of extensive copy writing. Every site comes with a choice of colors that users can easily carousel through for instant run of site previewing. There simply isn’t a faster way to get a gorgeous site designed for any business."
The templates will be available to all hosting service providers among Hostopia’s network of over 270 partners. Any web or email hosting service provider can now offer this powerful value-added service that assists any business in creating a professional Internet presence.
