Some questions and answers about YikeSite.
You will provide first level support to your clients. You are welcome to contact us to help with any clarifications you might need.
Absolutely. When you first signup as a reseller you get a YOURCMS.yikesite.com domain name. However, you also get an unbranded domain name like YOURCMS.customerhost.com which you can use temporarily until you point your domain name.
If you don't have a wildcard domain name pointed, your customers will get a URL like CUSTOMER.clientwebsite.net. When you point your domain name, they will signup to CUSTOMER.<your-domain-name>.
Most domain name registrars will allow you to point a wildcard domain name at our server. What you need to do is make a CNAME for your * wildcard to app.yikesite.com or an A record to 126.96.36.199. Some registrars will charge you additional to do this but registrars like GoDaddy will do this for free.
Any website created with YikeSite can output designs that work well in any browser. The extent of which browsers/platforms you support depends on how well you set up the CSS/HTML. The default template we provide is tested in the major browsers.
The admin and edit features of YikeSite have restrictions on which browsers you can use. We recommend Firefox, Chrome or Safari (Mac or PC). They're free and work great.
Not at this time. There are a good handful of domain name registrars that will not only let you point your domain name at us and will also host your e-mail.
YikeSite is a service aimed at web developers and designers and as such requires basic knowledge of HTML/CSS to edit templates. If you would rather, you can hire us as your technical resource. All you need to do is send us your layered graphic file and we will take your design and make it into a website.
We offer the YikeSite Website Dashboard free of charge, and the ability to host websites for free while you are building them, so you have the opportunity to try out the software before you commit.
