We also run scheduled penetration testing against our software to maintain the highest level of security possible.
In theory yes, but this is not the best tool for creating a website.
We would advise you to create a website first.
Call us on 0705 080 4092 and we’ll help you set-up a website. We’ll arrange your domain name, hosting and develop a site with you.
Then our product is great for further development, enhancements, and maintenance.
No. Our editor works by looking up your web pages on your existing website, passing them to our editing software for you to edit and preview, then uploading the changes back to your own site.
We do this via a process called FTP and your host will almost certainly provide you with FTP access.
Because we work by reading and writing to your own website, if you change host, just tell us and carry on using CMS made easy.
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a standard connection protocol used to connect to a website and transfer files to and from it. Your hosting company will almost certainly provide FTP access to your site.
You will need to know the FTP address, login name and password before you can use CMS made easy. You will be able to get this from your website designer or your hosting company. To find out who your hosting company is (and other public information about your site) go to https://secure.domaintools.com/
Oh yes... We believe that one of the main reasons people look for an editor like CMS made easy is to try and do a bit of self help in promoting their site. We help in the following 5 ways:-

Flash - CMS made easy allows you to upload Flash files (and a variety of other video formats) but is not a flash editor.
MySpace, Wordpress, Google Sites and some others - No. These vendors do not provide FTP access.
Ecommerce sites are linked closely to a database, which inputs dynamically to your pages. We do not provide a database editor - so our editor is meaningless on a site which dynamically generates pages.
No - absolutely not. You own it all - we help you edit it and write it back, but we have no rights whatsoever to any of your content. The latest content remains on your site with your host.
We do retain up to 90 days page history so that you can go back to a previous version of a page (that has saved more than one site from disaster!), but it’s your content and if you cancel your subscription we delete all copies within 30 days.
You can try CMS made easy for free by clicking on the link to the free trial.
If you like it - to use CMS made easy we charge just £10* per month or £99 annually ($16 per month or $160 annually).
