A new web hosting and eCommerce solutions provider has opened for business, with Ingenyes specifically designed to give SMBs an easy introduction to the online world.
Ingenyes offers a free hosting service for small businesses, and according to freelance graphic and web designer Rowan Attenborough, it was the best provider to start promoting his small business online.
“So far it’s been a really streamlined process,” he said.
The service follows a ‘try before you buy’ approach, which Attenborough believes is a draw card for small businesses just getting started digitally.
“Price was the greatest part and they’re pretty competitive from that point of view,” Attenborough said.
The initially free package allows customers to go in and set everything up and get a feel of their business online without the start up costs. “For people in my position I think it’s a great way of getting in there,” he added.
Ingenyes is tailored to suit the needs of those who are just starting out online and Attenborough said this cuts down the costs usually associated with starting a website.
“I think they’ve actually tailored their product offerings for really entry level businesses and people who don’t have any computer knowledge. You can actually get really professional looking sites without the need to draft in developers and designers.”
Ingenyes allows users to control all content on the site via a single control panel, that’s able to change site instantly.
“Within the control panel you have another piece of software that installs things simply by just clicking a button and then it’s there and it’s ready to be used,” Attenborough said.
“It takes away that level of technical difficulty in having to set those up with developers so it’s all just point and click and you’ve got that functionality at your fingertips.”
Small businesses just starting to venture online can choose the basic free package and then use more paid features available from Ingenyes as they grow.
“It’s going to look good, in terms of not just setting up your initial website but how you think on how to grow it from there,” Attenborough said.
