November 30, 1999 in Announcements (E)
[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - MacMate, the ever-popular cloud service for Mac users, have announced three major updates and releases to their packages. Web Builder Live, Wordpress M3, as well as increasing features across all the packages. Now everyone can create a free website.
Web Builder Live is included free on all MacMate packages. MacMate Lite now features: Web Builder Live, Galleries, Cloud disk, Email and Filesharing.
"Building websites used to be complicated from the design, to the code, to getting it published on the net. Not any more, now building a website is simple, and comes with pre-security-screened, tried and tested themes and plugins." James Brown, one of MacMate' senior developers.
Fully managed Wordpress:
MacMate haven't stopped there, they have also added Wordpress M3 to their premium MacMate Pro. WordPress M3 combines the power of WordPress with ease of maintenance. It is a fully managed Wordpress solution where users don't have to worry about the complicated stuff like finding themes, installing plugins, keeping things up to date - not to mention sleepless nights about security implications. It comes with over 90 plug ins and over 300 premium themes to choose from - at no extra charge and with more being added constantly.
More cloud - bigger MacMate, increased features:
Along with the launch of Web Builder Live and Wordpress M3, MacMate have enhanced all three packages with extra features, and more cloud space. As well as opening up virtually all previously paid-for features into their free Lite package, adding everything together so the user can save, build, and host email, galleries and their site in one place.
"It's the biggest release we have done since launch. We have always dreamed of a web builder integrated within MacMate that was super-easy to use. Wordpress is amazing, and one of the best ways to create a website but we still thought Wordpress hosting needed one thing extra - to simplify the amazing. Our new packages allow anyone, any size, business or home user to be able to design, build and host with one provider, with no need for third party apps or software. " Peter Mellett, MacMate senior developer.
MacMate is designed to be simple to use, like Macs - with familiar drag-and-drop for uploading and downloading files. Because MacMate works like a real disk there is no software to install - it works natively on Mac, Windows and Linux. MacMate packages include support for popular protocols like: AFP, FTP, SFTP and WebDav making it very versatile and easy to use.
