SiteBuilder Lite is a modified version of Homestead's award-winning, SiteBuilder product that offers "do-it-yourself" or full-service web site creation, hosting, marketing and ecommerce capabilities to small businesses and online stores that wish to establish and maintain a unique Internet presence. SiteBuilder Lite and QuickSites, launched jointly in March of 2005, was named PC Magazine Editors' Choice and also won a DEMOGod award at the Demo@15 conference.

SiteBuilder Lite for Mac OS X was specifically designed to offer small businesses a greater level of convenience and flexibility. Homestead subscribers can now exercise choice in using SiteBuilder Lite on their preferred operating system, and also make basic changes to their web site's content and images -- without requiring the download of the original SiteBuilder software. In addition, Homestead has enhanced the web-based user experience by leveraging the latest in AJAX technology. AJAX offers SiteBuilder Lite users a level of richness and responsiveness typically only experienced when using desktop applications. Says, Thai Bui, Homestead's Chief Technology Officer, "Homestead has created SiteBuilder Lite using AJAX, because it offers users a smoother, more immediate editing experience that will feel like they're doing so on an application, rather than a web browser."

"We're pleased to announce that SiteBuilder Lite now supports the Macintosh. SiteBuilder Lite has been a fantastic hit with our customers since its launch last year, and it we're excited to extend this elegant tool to the Macintosh platform," said, Justin Kitch, Homestead CEO & co-founder. "The extension of our service to include the Mac operating system is the natural progression of our service offering and ongoing commitment to enhance our subscriber's overall user experience."
