Blacknight Launches BaseKit’s Website Builder for Small Businesses



Blacknight makes it even easier to get your small online business up and running with BaseKit’s Website Builder for Small Businesses.

Blacknight proudly announce the addition of the BaseKit Website Builder to their suite of business friendly services. The BaseKit builder allows businesses to create a beautiful, responsive website, blog or online store instantly, which is particularly great for those who aren’t necessarily tech savvy enough to code a site from scratch but need a website that looks and behaves professionally.

For a lot of small businesses being able to get an attractive and responsive website up and running is hard work and potentially expensive. If a business is operating on a shoestring budget, there aren’t funds available to hire a website designer or IT person to maintain the code for an online store. BaseKit’s Website Builder takes the burden of these expenses off of small businesses, allowing them to build up their online presence and control all aspects of their website.

Blacknight CEO Michele Neylon explains: “Blacknight began as a small business so we are particularly keen on offering the best solutions for getting small businesses online. While a lot of businesses might opt for WordPress or another CMS, the downside is that maintaining the software can be a chore. By using our new super duper easy to use BaseKit website creator they don’t need to worry about software updates, security concerns etc.”

Neylon also stresses the importance of small businesses operating through their own website rather than relying on services like Facebook to maintain their online identity. “It is so important that businesses have their own website with a great domain name. I cringe when I see a business solely using Facebook for their online presence because if Facebook should suddenly close its doors or change their policies, all of their data will be lost. Creating your own website that you control ensures that all of your data remains secure with you.”

The Blacknight BaseKit Website Builder will be available in a variety of packages from a Basic Monthly that starts at 8 Euro per month to an Enterprise Annual package that includes unlimited storage and bandwidth for 240 Euro annually. Blacknight customers can log into their control panel to manage their account and website building options securely, quickly and easily.

Blacknight have also created a demo site to show off what you can do with the service:
