A few weeks ago when we announced the launch of our new WP-EZ Website Builder, one person who uses our old NE1 Website Builder commented:
I am completely happy with the NE1 site builder, and quite honestly, don’t have the time to learn something new, again. Why not leave well enough alone?
In the announcement, I explained 4 reasons I you’re going to love our new WP-EZ Website Builder, but I realize I have not adequately explained…
4 Reasons Continuing NE1 is Impossible
1) NE1 Requires Obsolete Software
To keep NE1 running as long as we have, we have to run other software on our server which went end of life in 2014.
2) NE1 is Not Secure
Because NE1 runs on obsolete software for which updates are no longer provided, that makes it a security vulnerability.
3) We Cannot Update NE1
We do not own the source code for NE1. The people who developed the source code have abandoned it and are not providing any updates.
4) NE1 is Not Mobile Friendly
Websites built with NE1 are not mobile-friendly. Not only is this incontinent for visitors to NE1 sites, but it also means NE1 sites don’t rank as well in Google’s mobile search results.
We are glad to hear there NE1 has some loyal fans, but for these reasons, we will not be able to offer NE1 or much longer. Fortunately, WP-EZ resolves all of these issues. It runs on the latest server software, it’s secure, it’s mobile-friendly and we can update and improve it any time.
Get WP-EZ Now!
As we mentioned in the announcement, WP-EZ is available now now with all new hosting accounts. You can order a web hosting package here.
NE1 to WP-EZ Coming Soon
For those of you with NE1 sites, we are finishing up the development and testing of a migration tool which will make it possible to copy your NE1 website into WP-EZ. It should be available in April.
Last Call for Beta Testers
If you currently use NE1 and would like to beta test WP-EZ and provide us with feedback, post a comment and let us know immediately. I will be contacting beta testers tomorrow.
