London, 7th December 2011: BaseKit, the website builder platform, launched a strategic partnership with one of the biggest hosting companies in Germany, Host Europe. BaseKit’s leading website builder will be made available to all Host Europe customers.
Host Europe, who are part of the Host Europe Group, have been doing site builder analyses for quite a while now. Patrick Pulvermüller, Managing Director Host Europe GmbH, explains why they’ve chosen BaseKit to partner up with:
“We were looking for a premium website builder and BaseKit does the job perfectly. Our clients want to build their own website but none of the site builders can offer the design quality which BaseKit can; the templates powered by BaseKit look as if they were designed by a professional web design company. To top it all, someone with no knowledge of hosting or html can have a good looking website live within a matter of a few hours.”
BaseKit’s drag & drop editor allows small businesses to create a website from scratch, customise the lay-out and make it dynamic by all the different features available like social media, ecommerce and built-in databases.
The website builder has been awarded 5 stars as a ‘Best Buy’ by The Sunday Times earlier this year because of it’s professional look and great usability, something that Patrick Pulvermüller agrees with:
“The ease of use of the website builder is unmatchable. I am sure our customers will love the features provided by Basekit.”
Juan Lobato, CEO of BaseKit, concluded:
“Our own customers choose BaseKit, because of the quality of the website builder, this is exactly what Host Europe stand for, they’re after quality of their products and services. That’s what makes this partner a perfect fit for us.”
BaseKit started rolling out partnerships all over the world with the aim of becoming the number one website builder to everyone that wants to make their own sites online. BaseKit allows external systems to integrate with the product so that the platform runs on other companies’ infrastructures.
