checklist.

Get started with a new website in five easy steps.

1: Select A Domain Name

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:

GodIsGood.Org
GodIsGoodChurch.Org
GIGC.Org

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.

2: Identify Web Pages

This is a listing of the pages you’d like to have featured on your website. Some typical pages include:

Home
About Us
Pastor’s Page
Prayer Requests
Ministries
Contact Us

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.

3: Compile Your Web Page Content

This is the actual content or verbiage you’d like to share, per page, on your new website. Generally, this would include:

Church Welcome
Pastor’s Bio
Services
Church History
Contact Info

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.

4: Choose Your Web Design

Subscribers can choose their own custom theme or design for their new website.
Here’s how:

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.

No Start-Up or Hosting Costs

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.

SSL Certificate

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.

Website Speed Boost

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.

Mobile Responsiveness

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.

Online Giving

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.

Important: Please see your chosen plan for your update frequency allotment (i.e.; weekly, bi-weekly or monthly). You can also click here to learn more about update turnaround times.

SEO: Search Engine Optimization

Search Engine Optimization (or SEO) is a methodology of strategies, techniques and tactics used to increase the amount of visitors to a website by obtaining a high-ranking placement in the Search Results Page (or SERP) of a search engine.

This includes all of the major search engines, such as: Google, Bing, Yahoo and others.

Our leading security software is updated several times annually and automatedly to remain steps ahead of new cyber threats and vulnerabilities, while keeping subscribers’ websites sage 24hrs a day, 7 days a week!

Email Forwarding

Email forwarding is a great way to have presentational uniformity when sharing contact information with visitors, members and businesses. Example: Your current email address: You@Aol.Com wouldn’t be uniform on your new MyChurch.Org website. But, You@MyChurch.Org” would be.

Email forwarding allows you to create You@MyChurch.Org and any email correspondences sent to that email address will be automatically “forwarded” to your original email address (You@Aol.Com) in real-time.

Audio and Video Sharing

Add audio and video footage to your website (i.e.; sermons, services, concerts and performances, etc.).

Events Calendar

This is a great feature to have if you’d like to share your church or ministry’s monthly event calendar with your website’s visitors. Note: Google Calendar is recommended.

Website Stats

Website statistics are detailed reports of the visitors to your website that contain the details of visits, behavior, pages visits, popular pages, sources of visits, referral, etc.

Picture Perfect

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.

Contact Form

Interact and communicate with your inquiring visitors with an online contact form. Forms can be completed and submitted in real-time – 24hrs a day, 7 days a week – and submissions are emailed to your church’s designated point person(s) for review and follow-up, automatedly.

Advertisement Pop-Ups

Ideal for Announcements, Special Services, Conferences, Events, Concerts and more, Automated Pop-Ups can feature flyers, pictures, custom verbiage and even videos! 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.

QR Code Integration

QR codes are a type of barcode, or scannable pattern, that contain various forms of data, like website links, account information, phone numbers, coupons and more. To maximize potential, contact us.

Event Pay-Per-View Enabled

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. Instead of relying on sponsors and other means of support, you can just allow visitors to pay for the content.
