Hello OurChurch.Com webmasters,

After more than a year of development OurChurch.Com's new NE1 Website Builder was launched last week. We think you're going to love the simplicity of NE1's control panel, the power of its advanced features, and the beauty of its templates. In this special Webmaster Newsletter we'll tell you what you need to know about NE1, including how it differs from Beacon and how to migrate your Beacon site to NE1.

1) NEW NE1 WEBSITE BUILDER NOW AVAILABLE!
Last week we launched our new NE1 Website Builder. We named it NE1 because it's simple enough to be used by ANYONE yet powerful enough for serious Internet users. NE1 has advanced functionality like a photo gallery, PayPal shopping cart, opt-in eNewsletter, blog, and more. The versatile templating system accommodates a variety of layouts, color schemes, and dynamic menus to give your site the look you want. Read more about it on the NE1 web page.

2) MIGRATING FROM BEACON TO NE1
We put a lot of time and effort into making the transition of your website from Beacon to the NE1 Website Builder as smooth and painless as possible. First, we created a migration tool that imports just about everything from your Beacon site to NE1. Second, we made it possible for you to tweak your NE1 site as much as you like while visitors continue to use your Beacon site. Third, we made it possible for you to activate your NE1 site and de-activate your Beacon site whenever you're ready with a single click. Fourth, once you activate your NE1 site, all the web addresses of your Beacon pages will automatically forward people to their corresponding NE1 web pages.

Some of you ran into some problems when migrating your site to NE1 in the past week. We want to assure you that we have now resolved all known problems with the migration tool. You should be able to transition your site without any trouble now. If you do run into any problems or have any questions our helpful support staff will be happy to assist you.

To begin migrating your site to NE1, go to your webmaster page and click the "Beacon to NE1" link at the top of the page.

3) 10 THINGS TO KNOW
There is so much we could tell you about NE1. In fact, our support staff has meticulously written more than 100 help pages to describe all the features and option available. But who wants to read 100 pages before getting started? You want to know the really important stuff and how it affects your website, right? So, we put together a brief article entitled: 10 Things to Know about Moving from Beacon to NE1

The Lord has laid this ministry on the heart of Barry Fowler to share the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to provide information about the United States of America and Patriotism. Barry Fowler was one of the NE1 beta testers, and as an early adopter of NE1 was a tremendous help as we resolved some issues early on. He has already migrated his site to NE1. So, here's a chance to see a real, live NE1 website.
