DOMAIN NAME & WEB HOSTING
All bpSites accounts come with a free domain name plus web hosting. If you already have your domain name, I'll help you get it set up to work with your bpsites account. If you don't have your name registered yet, I can take care of that for you. Your account comes with three domain email addresses (email@example.com), and includes forwarding to your existing email address at no charge. Additional email addresses are available for purchase.
Disc space allowances for Standard Accounts is 500MB and 1GB for Plus Accounts. This easily allows for hundreds and hundreds of images for your galleries or portfolio. The actual number will depend upon the size of images you wish to display, but that too is in your control!
IMAGE GALLERIES (See examples here!)
All bpSites accounts include image gallery options and the ability to have sub-categories within your gallery. Your website's gallery images can be viewed in three sizes - thumbnail, main and large pop-up. You control the image dimensions using your site's Admin area, a password protected section where you're able to easily manage your site.
You'll appreciate the ability to make image adjustments. Images can easily be rotated and cropped as needed. Resizing is done automatically to your specifications. Choose from automated thumbnails or get creative with bpSite's square thumbnail feature.
bpSites have several formatted, commonly used pages to assist you in having your site completed ASAP. Gallery, Links, Events and Contact pages are all available in multiple layouts. Need a Price List or Order Form? They're automatically generated and a part of your site in just a few clicks! Ten formatted pages in all. You can add four additional pages with a Standard Account and unlimited pages with a Plus Account.
EDITING DESIGNS & CONTENT
Your bpSites account has a password protected Admin Area where you manage your website. It features a Rich Text Editor similar to using Microsft Word, allowing you to give your text "style," plus add links, insert images, even create pop-ups! You can make unlimited changes to your design and content, any time of the day or night. Your changes are immediately shown on your website. Design changes are made using an easy editing form with visual guide. [To Top]
COLOR SCHEMES (Try it!)
Generate custom color schemes from your logo, or image. Fast, simple & fun! An easy way to create a beautiful & cohesive look for your website. Another unique (& cool!) feature.
TEMPORARY HOME PAGE
While most other services "launch" your website as soon as your account is activated, bpSites lets you decide when you're ready. Your account has a temporary home page to post with your message while you fine-tune your website design and upload your gallery images.
Type in your name, business name, or any text at all - "click" to save it as a custom banner. [To Top]
Presentation is everything - I offer site designs different from the rest! Your bpSites account gives you access to a library of background graphics for use anywhere throughout your website. And if they're not the right color, you can change that yourself with a few clicks! New designs and graphics will be added on a regular basis. Custom graphics for your exclusive use, such as a header image with your logo or artwork, can be purchased.
Customization of existing bpSites designs is available. New designs can also be created through one of two options. Option A: A new Custom Design is created at your request. The design layout remains part of bpSites and is available for all to modify and use. The graphics however, are for your use only. Option B: A new Exclusive Design is created at your request. The design layout and all graphics are for your exclusive use. (Due to the nature of templates, some restrictions may apply) [To Top]
mp3 MUSIC GALLERY/PLAYER
bpSites accounts include the option of an mp3 music player (XSPF) page complete with lyrics text. Customize the player to match your site with color tinting and font colors. Includes play/pause, previous, stop, next, repeat, shuffle, mute, time display and lyrics link option. See a working example here. [To Top]

Easily add your own personal blog, already styled to match your site! [To Top]
Other businesses may connect you with a customer service rep, but at bpSites you'll always be communicating with me - the designer, creator, and programmer. I will either have the answer for you or provide an alternative solution as soon as possible. Customer service is a high priority. [To Top]
Forums are a great online networking resource, allowing users to trade ideas and solutions, get answers to questions and show off what they've done. [To Top]
