Get started with a new website in five easy steps.
To start, you’ll need to identify up to three (3) domain names (in order of preference) for your new website. We ask for more than one because one or more could be taken. So, let’s say your church’s name is: God Is Good Church. Ideal domains should include:
Your domain will be your new website’s permanent identifying “web address,” so be sure the name you select best describes your church or ministry — whether full or abbreviated. Important: If you would like for us to purchase a domain name for you, please click here to cover the domain purchase for one year. Note: Be sure to include your desired domain name when prompted.
This is a listing of the pages you’d like to have featured on your website. Some typical pages include:
Additional pages (ex. Gallery, Church Calendar) are welcome.
Note: Some pages/features are not available for all plans. Click here to view + compare plans and availability.
This is the actual content or verbiage you’d like to share, per page, on your new website. Generally, this would include:
Important: Accompanying pictures to display throughout are strongly encouraged but not required. If you do not have accompanying pictures to provide, please visit our store to learn more about Picture Perfect.
Subscribers can choose their own custom theme or design for their new website.
I. Send us up to three (3) different links to example websites that you like currently. No site is too big or small.
II. Be sure to include what you like about each website. This can include: functionality, design, navigation, fluidity, etc.
III. Our design team will then review the submissions and communicate which option would best fit/display your ministry and content.
IV. We will then design and build/develop your new custom website with those noted references in mind and utilized them as loosely-based inspiration.
Some websites, pages and features are not applicable for all subscribers.

Detailed breakdown of what’s included our monthly plans.
The indicates the web page count per plan.
Example: This is an example of a five (5) page website:
Pewple subscribers do not have to pay hundreds or even thousands in start-up costs for a custom website and professional online experience! Pewple subscribers do not have to pay any of the monthly hosting fees that generally accompany a professional website, either. Your general online presence, site maintenance, backups, content updates (concierge), storage and more are all included with your subscription.
An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates the identity of a website and encrypts information sent to the server using SSL technology. Encryption is the process of scrambling data into an undecipherable format that can only be returned to a readable format with the proper decryption key.
A certificate serves as an electronic “passport” that establishes an online entity’s credentials when doing business on the Web. When an Internet user attempts to send confidential information to a Web server, the user’s browser accesses the server’s digital certificate and establishes a secure connection.
It’s all in the name: “Website Speed Boost.” Our developers boost load times- by a lot. So much so, that we had to include this speed notice below.
Speed Notice: We’ve noticed that some of our clients’ websites load a bit too fast. A problem all website owners would like to have, we suppose, but we still wanted to address what to do, if you ever noticed that the menu or top of the page displays immediately but the remainder of the page seems to be loading still. It’s not; the full site is there. Simply, tap your screen and the rest of the page will appear immediately. We can only surmise that the speedy delivery somehow confuses browsers or something.
Responsive web design is a distinct approach to web development with the succinct aim to ensure an optimal viewing experience (i.e.; easy readability and navigational access with little to no viewer resizing, panning and scrolling needed) across a wide range of devices from desktop computers and tablets to mobile phones.
Google implemented a search algorithm which favors mobile responsive websites. And, you’re covered.
Receive tithes, offerings, and other financial support and donations safely and securely via your website. The number following Online Giving (i.e.; Online Giving: 3) represents the number of online giving options you can have integrated into your website.

Pewple subscribers can request that relative, high-quality images (i.e.; A person praying, etc.) are used on select pages or throughout the entire site- if, when and where the church does not have high-quality images of their own to publish.
Being that per picture pricing for larger, high-quality images are quite costly, we are excited to save our subscribers a considerable amount of money with the Picture Perfect addition.

And, each pop-up can appear anywhere and on as many pages as you choose. Your pop-ups can also be systematically-timed to appear when and how often you want them to. Example: Pop-ups can appear once per site visit (per day) or as often as someone visits a particular page. Either way, you’re always in control of the content and how it’s displayed.
Do you want to create a pay-per-view conference, concert or event, and have it air on your website? Now you can! Pay-per-view allows churches the ability to directly sell content to visitors.
