RSS Subscribe End of life for RV Sitebuilder on our CPanel servers
Posted on 15/08/13 12:42AM

We have decided to phase out RV Site builder on our servers, and we have ceased advertising it as a feature. RV Site builder is a third party sitebuilder on our CPanel web hosting plans. We are phasing it out for a number of reasons, but mainly because it hasn't been as reliable as it should be, and it has high support costs. It has also only had very limited uptake, so there are very few websites that use it. There are also now far better CMS options out there now, such as Concrete 5, CMS Made Simple and Wordpress, which are relatively easy to setup, and can have far more features. These weren’t available or as easy to use when we first introduced RV Sitebuilder.
