All of Treepl's websites are physically hosted on servers of Amazon Web Services - a leading secure cloud services platform. You have a choice of 4 data centers for every website you create in Treepl: USA, Australia, EU (Germany) and Canada.
No, Treepl CMS is a closed system. All sites are supported and maintained by Treepl CMS team on AWS servers.
Treepl CMS is owned and managed by a USA-based company and is charged by AWS in USD. Therefore all prices are fixed in US dollars no matter of the Data Center you use.
We prefer to not show our hosting prices publicly since our business model is designed for resellers - Treepl Partners and Treepl Associates.
Treepl Partners are paid members of our community that actively participate in the development and growth of the platform by interacting with the Treepl CMS team and other Partners.
Besides developing and hosting sites on Treepl CMS, Treepl Partners provide an extensive set of services for their end clients that are not included into CMS (SEO setup, SSL certificates, Google Analytics setup, email campaigns setup and management, maintenance, consulting and much more).
You can check out hosting prices exclusive for Treepl Partners here: Reseller Hosting Pricing.
We offer 24/7 admin support for all four data centers. Partner support is available 9/5 through through Partner Portal. Extra support from Treepl developers and other Treepl Partners is exclusively available for paid Partners only.
Adobe Business Catalyst is using OpenSRS as a vendor to host email accounts. Treepl CMS is using the same vendor and our account is intentionally located on the same cluster's with BC's. This allows us perform seamless migrations of the accounts. It takes 10-15 minutes of your time to migrate email accounts associated to your single site from BC's account onto Treepl's account. Here is a detailed guide from our documentation: Transfer of BC Hosted Email Accounts (OpenSRS)
Absolutely. Simply follow these 3 easy steps:
1. Get access to your Treepl's partner portal. It's available for free on our partner program page
2. Create a trial site in Treepl's partner portal the same way you did with BC
3. Go to BC App Store and download the "BC to Treepl" app to the BC site you're about to migrate
That's it! If you require any development help, you can request it at any time from Code Production
Yes. You can always request migration of your Business Catalyst website to Treepl CMS through Code Production: BC to Treepl CMS. FYI, getting quote from Code Production is free.
Code Production team will simply use the Adobe Muse layouts as initial designs and do the whole HTML/CSS and full stack implementation into Treepl CMS from scratch.
Also, there are no restrictions on using the "BC to Treepl" app.
