(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – BaseKit, the leading website building platform which partners with some of the world’s largest web hosting providers, today announced the launch of its Fast Track programme, tailored to offer smaller hosting companies a fast and simple way to integrate with the BaseKit editor.
For hosting companies with limited time or resource, the Fast Track programme allows them to easily deploy BaseKit’s website editor through a cPanel plugin or by adding an embed widget to their website.
According to a recent survey into the hosting industry commissioned by BaseKit, 75% of businesses polled integrated with a website building service in order to add value to their customers and to increase their revenue. Of these, 70% reported that their customers find WordPress difficult to use and prefer to use a purpose built website builder.
BaseKit’s CEO, Juan Lobato, says: “BaseKit is signing up over 40,000 new customers a month through our partners, which represents a significant opportunity for businesses alike as there is a huge appetite for beautiful, easy-to-create websites for SMBs.
“Our Fast Track programme addresses a gap in the market for hosting companies who might not have the time or resource to supply a tailored offering to their customers. BaseKit exists to help small businesses online and our new Fast Track programme is an obvious step forward for our partner solution, providing smaller hosting companies with a service to retain customers, increase revenue, and become the go-to place for customers to visit online as they seek to grow their business.”
BaseKit was founded in 2008 and has become the world’s fastest growing website editor, distributed by global partners in the hosting and telecoms space. The platform enables small businesses and designers to build and manage beautiful websites entirely in the browser. BaseKit’s website editor is available in 16 languages and multiple integrations are supported, including: On-premise, SaaS, cPanel plugin and Parallels APS.
BaseKit now has over 80 employees, with offices in London, Bristol, Toronto, and Sao Paulo, with over 100 strategic partnerships worldwide. BaseKit won Seedcamp in 2008 and has subsequently received investment from Eden Ventures, NESTA and Nauta Capital.
