PayPal Removal, cWatch and SitePad Website Builder

PayPal


To better protect ourselves against fraudulent transactions, we are removing PayPal as a payment method.

This comes as we have discovered through not-so-pleasant experiences that PayPal is more keen on protecting these criminals than the interest of the business they serve.

Customers using it will have to switch to another method that we support.

For active users, this process only requires activating the desired payment method at the Web Hosting Magic customer dashboard via https://dashboard.webhostingmagic.com/account/paymentmethods

We support:

  • Credit and Debit Cards
  • SEPA Direct Debit
  • SOFORT
  • Giropay
  • Apple Pay


and will be adding Alipay and WeChat Pay soon.

If you are unable to effect this change yourself, please let our account team know.



cWatch


While our systems are built for active website protection, we also believe in giving customers the chance to actively participate in the security of their websites, web servers, and web applications.

Customers can either choose to use SiteLock or cWatch which we recently added as an additional option.

Comodo cWatch Web is a 24/7 managed security service (MSS) that runs on Comodo's high capacity cloud.

The Content Delivery Network (CDN) to host the protection/detection software at geographically placed servers around the globe.

There are many security delivery advantages to this architecture including:

  • the ease of deployment
  • agility in its upkeep to an ever-changing threat
  • DDoS mitigation
  • and website traffic acceleration

WARNING: Please do not use SiteLock and cWatch together as doing so may give you more grief than help. Decide on what to go with, and stick with it.



SitePad



SitePad Website Builder is now available on your cPanel.

For regions where we haven't rolled this out, it will be before Friday, the 21st of February, 2020.

SitePad is a drag-and-drop website builder with 354 Professional themes that cover a wide range of categories like blog, business, portfolio, restaurants, travel, etc.

It has 40+ widgets like image/video slider, image galleries, rich text, video, audio, service box, Google maps, contact form, social media and many more that you can add to your website.

SitePad publishes static files (HTML, CSS, JS) to your web hosting account.

And as you may know, static contents (compared to a PHP website) are faster which also means that your website loads super-fast.

SitePad is intended for developers who want to deliver a website super-fast either to their customers or to themselves.

For customers with minimal coding skills or website management experience, it is really easy to create any website of your choice without knowing much about the intricacies of how a website works.



Access SitePad Website Builder from cPanel

SitePad is enabled by default in Softaculous hence you can find a link to SitePad Website Builder in the left panel just below the search box.

Click on that link and it will take you to the overview page which will show the features of SitePad.

Click on the Get Started button which will redirect you to the SitePad editor server.



Choose a Theme

Once you are redirected to the SitePad editor server you will need to choose a theme for your website.

You can choose from 354 professional themes that cover a wide range of categories like blogs, music, business, portfolio, restaurants, travel, etc.

All the themes are fully-responsive so your website will work across all devices.



Start editing your website with drag & drop editor

After choosing a theme the default pages will be populated with demo content.

With the help of 40+ Widgets like image/video slider, image galleries, rich text, video, audio, service box, Google Maps, contact form, social media buttons, etc, you can start editing the contents, add images/videos, text.

You also create new pages as may be needed.



Publish your website

Once your website is ready, just click on the Publish button.

This will transfer static files i.e. HTML, CSS, JS to your web hosting account i.e. cPanel.

The final website will be hosted on your web server and since the files are static your website will load much faster as compared to a PHP website.
