Multisite setup

With a single TYPO3 core, you can build multiple sites - usually all extensions will be the same for these sites. Such a setup can be useful to create several landing pages.

Free staging environment while building the website

SaaS Web sets up a staging environment for one month for free so you can build the website without hassle. Once ready, SaaS Web will move it to production. If you desire, you can keep the staging website as test environment in order to check changes before applying them to the live site.

Use self developed themes

You can upload your own themes for your website.

Core, extensions and theme updates

SaaS Web uses monitoring software but also keeps informed via mailing lists, community memberships and personal contacts in order to update the systems and applications on time. Some updates are automatic, others are manual, all manipulation is monitored and safe, so that a broken update can be reverted directly without further consequences.

Free VPN secured admin area

For obvious security reasons, SaaS Web proposes to use a VPN access to manage your website. SaaS Web sets up a single access for free, if you need other accounts, they will be charged. After activation, it will not possible to access the admin backend without the VPN. This is a “natural” way for preventing brute force attacks as the backend is not accessible anymore from the Internet.
