This week, DreamHost announced the public launch of its new website builder, Remixer. The click-to-edit tool is free to use with any DreamHost hosting plan, and will be included with all domain registration purchases for a limited time.
DreamHost says that it began work on Remixer – a custom-website builder created entirely in-house – after hearing from customers that existing solutions to building a website were not as easy and straightforward as they ought to be.
Ralph Castro, Remixer Product Manager said:
Our web hosting customers kept saying it: creating an engaging, customizable website is still too much of a challenge to get up and running — existing platforms are still too complex.
It became clear that there was a need for a website builder that was not only fast and a piece of cake to use, but that also gave users control over the information they share and how they share it.
The company claims that product beta testers have confirmed it is helping them create websites much more easily. Amy LaLicata, Founder of RainbowLight Creations, a multi-media production company said:
What appealed to me about Remixer was the ability to choose an attractive theme, and easily add photos and content. My website was instantly on the internet without any complications or having to hire an IT person.
