Is Hosting Included in My Plan?
YES! Brilliant Directories premium managed hosting is always included with your website. Because of this, you’ll save on the expensive cost of world-class hosting, website security, and the headaches that come with managing your own servers. We’ll do all of the heavy lifting – at no additional cost.
Connect Any Domain
If you already own a registered domain, all you need to do is point your domain’s nameservers to Brilliant Directories to connect your domain with your Brilliant Directories website. All domain extensions are compatible with Brilliant Directories: .com, .com.au, .co.uk, .org, .gov, .me & more!
Secure SaaS Platform
We understand that security is paramount for software-as-a-service solutions; especially when we host your website data. To do our part, each Brilliant Directories website is monitored 24/7 to ensure compliance with the toughest security standards and protocols.
As a website administrator, you will always have access to the FRONTEND SOURCE CODE that powers your website, allowing you to take full control! We maintain state of the art security through the closed-source network in the BACKEND ADMIN PANEL of the Brilliant Directories software, making it harder for hackers to find and exploit vulnerabilities in the source code.
Essential SSL Security
SSL Certificates are key components of a safe, secure website. It protects your website’s sensitive data during online transactions – boosting customer confidence and resulting in more sales. Best of all, every website powered by Brilliant Directories already has one! Brilliant Directories provides you with SSL secured sign up and payment processing pages at no additional cost.
Daily Backups & Exports
Your Brilliant Directories website management software automatically performs daily backups of your entire website and stores 24 hours worth of backups. If needed, you can opt for our extended website backups which will store 14 days worth of backups.
Controlled Email Address Management
When you connect your domain name to Brilliant Directories, you’ll get an unlimited number of forwarding email addresses for free. If your domain name is “yourdirectory.com,” you can now create new addresses like “firstname.lastname@example.org”. Emails sent to your new email addresses will be forwarded to an email account you already own (e.g. email@example.com), saving you time and help your business look professional.
Login Attempt Protection
Some of the many included security features are IP address tracking and unsuccessful login protection. Visitors’ IP addresses are recorded to keep track of who’s doing what on your website. The system can then lock users out of your website after several unsuccessful login attempts, preventing unwarranted access and password guessing.
Managing multiple sites is easy from the admin panel. When you have more than 1 website connected to your admin account, an additional menu link will appear in the navigation menu – this allows you to toggle between all your different websites with just one click. If you ever want to clone an existing site you’ve already designed – you can do that too!
