Web Hosting company offers bundled software to easily build, post and view Websites
TORONTO, ON. - August 11, 2003 - Netfirms, Inc., one of the fastest growing Web Hosting companies in the world, today introduced a free, multi-software, site builder CD that will make it easy for a person of any skill level to build, maintain and host their own Website.
The Netfirms Website Starter CD™ contains full versions of NetObjects Fusion 7 (a $149.95 value), FileZilla, Netscape Navigator as well as a number of Website plug-ins including Macromedia™ Flash and Adobe™ Acrobat Reader.
The new product will be made available, free of charge, to all Netfirms customers as part of the company's initiative to help everyone get their personal or professional Website up and running effortlessly.
"One of the questions many of our customers ask is, 'How do you build a Website?' The Netfirms Website Starter CD is the answer to that question," said Thomas Savundra, President and CEO of Netfirms. "Once our customers receive the CD, they can literally build and upload a site in 10 minutes, regardless of their web design experience. This new product allows anyone to get free or low-cost Web Hosting and all the software required to manage a simple or complex Website in one place."
"We decided to offer a standalone product on CD rather than an online site builder because it provides a much more feature rich solution with no limitations," stated Jason Matheson, Web Director at Netfirms. "In one convenient bundle we have provided all the tools needed to build, post and view your site."
The Netfirms Website Starter CD includes:
- The latest in a long line of award-winning site builders, NetObjects Fusion 7 - which has been optimized for Netfirms - was built to let individuals and small businesses create customized Websites without the need for HTML programming.
- FileZilla is a simple and secure FTP client designed to upload your Website to Netfirms in minutes.
