What is Awesome Andre?

Awesome Andre is the all-in-one product that makes life easier and business more profitable. We're replacing 5+ tools that are essential for internet businesses with one - that's why life is easier. No more moving data between a handful of separate solutions. No more remembering 5 log ins for different products. No more wrestling with code and techie stuff. At a basic level Awesome Andre is web hosting for your business website. But to go with that you get website management tools, email marketing, eCommerce and an integrated customer database.

How is Awesome Andre like web hosting?

It's very similar actually - some people call Awesome Andre a "next generation" hosting solution because of all the built in goodies that it comes with. You'll have an FTP account to upload web pages, CSS, flash, JavaScript and images. It's also true to say that any non-programming related thing that you can do with a regular web hosting company, you can do with us.

Do I need to know programming or HTML to add content to my web pages?

Awesome Andre enables web designers to build powerful Online Businesses for their clients. While we provide fool-proof editing options for your clients, these are intended for on-the-fly content editing (eg. editing a web page). In order to customize the overall design, layout and "look" of sites, you will require a basic understanding of HTML and CSS.

Is my creative freedom limited when designing on Awesome Andre?

Absolutely not! Awesome Andre does not limit your creative freedom whatsoever. You have complete control over the HTML / CSS that you put into the system.

Is your system standards compliant?

Yes indeed it is. Is your website? Because Awesome Andre will respect your HTML code and won't change it, your website's XHTML standards compliance will depend on the HTML code that you or your designer has created. However if you do insert any system modules onto your web pages, the code generated by the system will be compliant.

Can I use my own web address? Or do I need to use wxyz.businesscatalyst.com?

You can use your own web address, also called a URL or domain name. You can either redelegate your domain and use our DNS servers or you can create an A-Record in your existing DNS service to point your domain to your new site at Awesome Andre - it's up to you. For instructions on this, see our knowledge base article. Please note that f you are a Premium Partner and wish to use our rebranding features you will need to redelegate the domain to us.

Can I run Javascript, CSS Stylesheets and Flash on Awesome Andre?

Of course! Anything you can run on another HTML page or on your blog will work just fine. Remember that at a base-level Awesome Andre is like any other web hosting platform.

Can I use FTP to manage my website?

Yes you get access to FTP to speed up managing your Awesome Andre website. You can even access system templates and layouts via FTP.

I've got some PHP code on my website that my nephew programmed for me. Can I use that?

Our goal was to create a platform that fulfilled the needs of 90% of all business people, so they didn't need to get their nephews and granddaughters to program for them. So the answer is no, you can't run PHP, ASP, .NET or other server-side code. But you can probably replicate the functionality, and then maintain it yourself without a problem.

I've heard solutions like this aren't SEO Friendly. Is this solution search engine friendly?

Of course! We use friendly and customizable URLs throughout and utilize search engine friendly techniques such as 301 Permanent Redirects. We even integrate with Google, Yahoo!, and Bing sitemaps feature, so the system regularly and automatically generates a "sitemap" which the search engines use to ensure your website gets maximum visibility in the search results.

Can I use Google Analytics on my Awesome Andre site?

Yes. You can easily add Google Analytics to any Awesome Andre site and get the rich reporting features that it provdies. Awesome Andre also provides an advanced reporting system builtin that comes with every site which you can use without any extra configuration.
