At ECO13.me you can craft amazing websites with ease:
- We take care of hosting, installation, backup, optimisation, security and updates.
- We provide an amazing content management system with awesome tools and features.
- You can focus fully on your content and on the look, feel and functionality of your website.
WordPresshandled with care
ECO13.me is fully powered by open source: from the server software to the content management system (CMS). The last, but not least, is WordPress: amazing website software anyone can use to craft stunning websites. WordPress is powerful, it fits the needs of almost any website project and it comes with more features than one can imagine.
Still, WordPress is famous for its user friendliness and thanks to its success and the fact that it is open source, many thousands of developers continue to make it better, directly or indirectly through plugin and theme development.
We like to say that WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.
Despite the user friendly interface and the smooth 5 minute install, it is not easy to keep going with WordPress. Optimisation and security are not luxury. That is where managed WordPress solutions come into play. Some are great, yet expensive. Others are free, but heavily restricted.
ECO13.me aims to be the perfect website solution for small and middle sized nonprofits. That is nothing less than easy, awesome, fair and cheap. So, we’ve got to give you the best of both worlds: a managed WordPress solution with close to all the freedoms of a self hosted WordPress installation.
easy as pie
to get started
ECO13.me is a great help to get started with WordPress. Creating a new site is as easy as finding the way in and choosing a name and subdomain for your site. New sites are not only created and activated instantly, they are also pretty optimised right off the bat:
- All settings are good to go for public websites.
- SEO gets optimised easily.
- Images get optimised automatically for web publishing.
- Website speed gets optimised.
- Security runs behind the screens.
- Automatic backup runs daily.
- Your site wears a nice looking, modern theme.
- And you can use a great editor to add content to it.
You do not need to worry about anything, to start publishing.
to the maxfreedom rules
ECO13.me is no magic though. The more time you invest in your site, the better it will become. How you do it, where you put the focus, is totally up to you. There is a lot you can do.
- You can choose one of the more than 150 available WordPress themes, or request that we add a different one.
- You can add any functionality to your site with WordPress plugins. Over 130 plugins are already available. Anything missing can be added upon request.
- You can import content from WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr and other sources to move in. To back up and to move out, you can export and save your content as an xls file.
- You can use CSS to make changes to themes on a per site basis.
- And you can use the question corner to request additional features and to find help.
still betafree until launch
Beware though: ECO13.me is still a construction site. The platform is entirely functional, yet mostly untested and hardly documented. Nonetheless, while we finish the home stretch, you can already try it out for free for at least 130 days.
If you start your website now, you become a beta tester:
- You understand that there is still a lot that can go wrong.
- We count on you to report bugs.
- Your feedback will be appreciated.
Prior knowledge, or a manual are not required to get started. It is easy.
