(Toronto) – MAR 19, 2014 — WebsiteBox, a leader in the development and support of low-cost, fully customizable websites for REALTORS®, signed up more than 5,000 new customers for its feature-rich, $99 real estate websites during its first year in business. Since demand for the affordable websites surged during the company’s first 12 months post-launch, CEO Peyman Aleagha announced the company’s decision to enlist’s powerful cloud hosting platform to ensure expandable, on-demand hosting 24/7.

Since launching on Jan. 16 2013, WebsiteBox has exceeded all expectations in its mission to provide REALTORS® with the technology they need to grow their businesses, at a price they can afford. By spring of last year, word of WebsiteBox.coms quality products and services had spread exponentially. Once real estate professionals saw that others were buying and confirming the quality of the website packages, customers began streaming in.

Before launched, REALTORS® were paying high prices and high monthly fees for development and on-going hosting of their websites. When WebsiteBox first introduced its sophisticated websites with integrated IDX and CRM, it did not take long for REALTORS® to learn that there were no hidden fees or catches.

Once they discover all that we give them for a one-time fee of only $99, they figure making the switch is a no-brainer, Aleagha says. We stand by every WebsiteBox product with a 30-day money back guarantee, so there’s no reason for our customers to hesitate.

REALTOR® and WebsiteBox customer Alan Randal confirms that what he thought sounded too good to be true when it was first released turned out to be not only true but a great investment in his business.

I’ve never been more enthusiastic about endorsing a company as I am about WebsiteBox, Randal says. My website is attractive, feature-rich and well designed for the real estate industry.

WebsiteBox websites come loaded with valuable productivity tools at an unbelievably low price, and since I purchased our offices WebsiteBox site I have had the pleasure of working with the most competent customer support staff I’ve encountered.

Randal says that his experiences with WebsiteBox’s customer service team, has been so efficient and prompt, he can’t help but encourage all of the agents at his firm to sign up.

This is a rare case where something that seems too good to be true really is!

According to Aleagha, part of keeping that customer experience positive was realizing that the initial hosting infrastructure would quickly be outgrown by the volume of new customers. Before a problem occurred, the decision was made to move to Amazon.coms powerful AWS infrastructure, with an expandable cloud platform that takes the worry about limited hardware infrastructure.

Our mission is clear, Aleagha says. We want to provide real estate agents with great technology at an affordable price, and it has paid off with a great reception from the real estate industry after being in business for such a short time; now that we have been able to upgrade our hosting platform to Amazons powerful cloud servers, we can offer our clients websites that load faster with almost zero downtime.

One of our core commitments is to continuously give back to our clients who have shown us so much support. We will continue to innovate and improve our product over time just one of the many ways we plan to give our clients even more than they expect.
