Hello OurChurch.Com webmasters,

It's hard to believe that in less than 4 weeks we celebrate our Savior's birth. Despite some delays, we committed to getting our new website builder out to you before Christmas. So, in this month's newsletter we have some important news about that. Plus, you have only 3 days left to get our best price ever on the Domain Hosting Package.

1) LOWEST PRICE EVER ON DOMAIN PACKAGE
This monthly only, get the Domain Hosting Package for only $49. This is the best price we've ever offered this hosting package in our 11 year history. The Domain Hosting Package includes your own domain name, unlimited pages, and 30 MB of space for pictures and graphics.

Giving your website its own .com, .org, or .net domain name gives it credibility. It tells visitors you are serious about your website. Plus it gives your site an address people can remember and return to regularly. As with all our premium hosting packages we’ll register your .com, .org, or .net domain name for you at no cost, saving you time and hassle. And we’ll pay the annual registration fee for you.

This special offer ends in three days. To upgrade, login to your Webmaster Page and click the "Order & Renew Premium Options" link.

2) IS NE1 OUT THERE?
Yes, but we're not talking about life on other planets. NE1 is the name of OurChurch.Com's soon-to-be-launch website builder. The name was selected to emphasize the fact that it can be used by anyone, anytime, anywhere to create a great website. The NE1 Website Builder is simple enough for an Internet novice, yet powerful enough for a professional website. It will be made available in our free and premium web hosting packages. Plus it's accessible from anywhere in the world.

The NE1 Website Builder - A Website for Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere.

3) NE1 WEBSITE BUILDER COMING DECEMBER 12
On Monday (11/26) OCC members who volunteered to test the NE1 Website Builder completed their testing and submitted their comments. Special thanks to these wonderful members! Based on their comments we are making some last-minute improvements. Wednesday December 12 has been selected as the day the NE1 Website Builder will be launched.

We will provide a lot more details about launch and the transition to the new web builder in coming weeks, but here are some things we thought you might want to know now.

- We have developed a "migration tool" which will import all web pages to the new web builder including pictures, music, guestbook entries, etc.
- The transition to the new web builder will not be instant or automatic. You will click a button to import your Beacon website into the new web builder and will be able to tweak the new site while the current site remains active. Then when you're ready to take your new site live, you will click another button.
- The URL (web address) of all websites will stay the same.

We've started a new topic for this in our forums. Please post comments and questions about this there.

4) INSIDE LOOK AT CHURCH WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT
OurChurch.Com's CEO, Paul Steinbrueck is wrapping up his series of 13+ blog articles giving you an inside look at his experience leading his church's effort to have their website redesigned by OurChurch.Com. Join us as Paul shares accounts of his interactions with our staff, design decisions, working with the church staff and boards, and getting the congregation to embrace the new site.

BEACON TIP O' THE MONTH
-----------------------
OCC's new NE1 Website Builder is schedule to launch December 12. Keep a close eye out for news and announcements.

WEBSITE SPOTLIGHT: Cypress Meadows Community Church – http://www.cypressmeadows.org
-----------------
Cypress Meadows Community Church is a mid-sized church near Tampa, FL with a heart for reaching unchurched people in the surrounding community with the Gospel. Cypress Meadows asked OCC to create a new site with a stunning appearance, advanced functionality, and the ability to distribute the management of the site to several staff members. A Custom CMS Express site was developed that includes Flash slideshows, sermon podcasting, and event registration. Staff and volunteers have been given differing levels of access so each can update the parts of the site they're responsible for. Check out the Christmas video and the way free tickets can be reserved online for the 5 Christmas services.
