Website Builder v7 versus v8

Here are the facts!

New users coming into Website Builder v8 have a 35% higher publish rate than in v7, publish 20% faster, and have a higher average Net Promoter Score (NPS).

Given all the changes to SEO, v8 sites also perform much better than v7 due to mobile-first focus, better performance and being optimized for conversion. Some design restrictions have been put in place to optimize website performance.

New SwissTronix Portal Launched

The new  www.swisstronix.com portal is live!

On May 1st, 2019 we launched a new portal with a design based on the wildly popular Bootstrap 4 open source toolkit for developing with HTML5, CSS3 code, Bootsnipp HTML snippets, and powerful plugins built on jQuery, a feature-rich JavaScript library.

Bootstrap is a sleek, intuitive, and powerful mobile-first front-end framework for faster and easier web development, extended to swisstronix needs. This architecture also provides a highly refined structure of validated, search engine optimized code. 

Of course, it’s cross-browser,  cross-platform, conforming

Even our swisstronix logo was redesigned……with an orange smiley added to give it character!

Web design, as with all other things in life, has evolved “dramatically”. Today, Bootstrap 4 architecture is, for some, the gold standard for web development.

Design of the new portal encompasses fluidity, luminosity, lucidity; and lots of passion!

And for webmasters, we evolved our eCommerce to open the door to others who may be interested The 2 plans offered include all the massive infrastructure that goes behind such eCommerce, with 3 multi-million professionally managed data centers (North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific) where the servers are stacked. We have it all fully automated, it’s all click and go!

Domain Renewal Notice

All .CO.ZA domain renewals must be renewed at least 2 days prior to the expiration date to avoid a $149.99 domain redemption fee. Please refer to this help article for more details.

The .co.za country-code top-level domain name (ccTLD) is an extension that represents the Republic of South Africa.
 
Domain names can be up to 63 characters, with a minimum of one character, and can contain letters (a to z), numbers (0 to 9), and hyphens (except at the beginning or end of the domain name). You cannot register domain names with special characters such as & and #.
Note: You cannot register .co.za domain names explicitly for resale. However, they can be sold and transferred.
 
PLEASE NOTE: If you do not renew your domain(s) during the 12-day Renewal Grace Period, you will incur a fee of $80.00 in addition to the domain renewal fee. During this time, the domain name(s) will be moved to parked nameservers and any website or email services associated with the domain name(s) will stop working. Be aware that most domains, including .com, .biz and .net, can only be recovered within a maximum of 30 days after your cancel date. For further information about Domain Renewals or Canceled Domains, review the Domain Registration Agreement.

NOTE: Our free product credit policy has been updated – see Section 8 of our Universal Terms of Service for more details. Active free products created in association with free credits from this domain registration will expire 1 year from the renewal of the domain name if they have been activated. Credits that have not been activated will expire and be removed at the time the domain renews. In the event that the Credit is redeemed, after the initial free one year period, the free product will automatically renew at the then-current renewal price until canceled. If you wish to cancel the automatic renewal of the product, you may do so by visiting your SwissTronix Cyber Services Account and turning off the auto-renewal feature, or by contacting SwissTronix Cyber Services customer service.
