doomby website homepage
|Stable release||4 / September 2010|
Released in 2009, doomby is a free online website builder, CMS (content management system) and web hosting platform. Its integrated web building tools and interfaces incorporate drag and drop and WYSIWYG editors with HTML code and CSS editing to adapt to users' existing experience with creating websites, thus enabling its use by novices or experienced website builders.
Basic accounts are free and include common website features such as an online store, a blog, forums, polls and photo albums. A number of optional paid services are also available to users, and include doombyPLUS (removing advertising, HTML-free Google AdSense integration and expanding file storage etc.), domain registration and an extended e-commerce feature set.
The name doomby is inspired by the Pulaar word for mice: ndoombi (a mouse being the logo both for doomby and for its French sister site E-monsite). Like those of its French sibling, doomby's members are the principal source of new feature ideas and are actively encouraged to participate in the software's on-going development.
Based in Amiens, France, doomby is published by Awelty SARL and is the global brand name of E-monsite: France's largest online web building platform with over 1,000,000 websites already created  and one of the 200 most popular websites in France. Awelty has specialized in on- and offline website design and publication since its inception in 2004. Awelty's business focus is two-fold: the development of accessible website tools, and turn-key corporate website development, SEO (search engine optimization) strategies and visual marketing materials. Awelty publishes the website AgendaCulturel.fr in addition to doomby and E-monsite.
