HTMLz can make you a custom skin or install a custom theme for most CMS's.


WordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. We like to say that WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.

The core software is built by hundreds of community volunteers, and when you’re ready for more there are thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine. Over 25 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home” — we’d love you to join the family.

WordPress is a One-Click Installation using Fantastico available from the Control Panel of HTMLz hosting accounts.

Text Pattern

What Is It?

A flexible, elegant and easy-to-use content management system. Textpattern is both free and open source.

When it comes to publishing on the internet, beginners and experts alike are met with a bothersome paradox: word processors and graphics applications allow anyone to do a pretty good job of managing text and images on a personal computer, but to make these available to the worldwide web – a seemingly similar environment of documents and destinations – ease of use vanishes behind sudden requirements for multilingual programming skills, proficiency in computer-based graphic design, and, ultimately, the patience of a saint.

Those who soldier on anyway may find themselves further held back by the web’s purported inflexibility with written language, with its reluctance to cope with all but the plainest of text, or by the unpredictable results brought about by using “WYSIWYG“ web editors.

Textpattern is a web application designed to help overcome these and other hurdles to publishing online, and to simplify the production of well-structured, standards-compliant web pages.

Pligg Features

Multiple Authors

While most content management systems are designed for just a few authors to control the content, Pligg is designed from the ground up to have thousands of authors on each site.

Article Rating

Pligg started as a simple CMS that let users submit and vote on news articles, and that’s still what we do best. Vote on articles that interest you and articles with enough votes will appear on the homepage of a Pligg site. Pligg offers a 5 star method for voting or the more traditional numbered voting as seen on sites like Digg, Mixx or Reddit.

Private Messaging

A social network site isn’t very social without the ability to communicate with each other. That’s why we include a private messaging module with Pligg, so you can leave messages in your friends inboxes.

Advanced Comment System

Not only can you comment on articles, but you can rate comments posted by other users. This effects the way that the comments are displayed, putting higher quality comments on top where they belong.

Module System

Add additional functionality to your Pligg site without having to alter the Pligg code. There is already a large library of modules to choose from that will greatly enhance your Pligg site.

Smarty Templates

We use the Smarty template system to keep our code seperate from the design. This makes updating your site to the latest version of Pligg easier, and designing new templates a breeze.

Spell Check

Our built in Spell Check system lets users check their spelling before submitting an article or comment.

Support for Multiple Languages

A single file handles all of the words used in Pligg, making it extremely simple to change the language by translating just one file. Pligg has also been designed so that users choose a language during the first installation step.

User Profiles

Each user that signs up on a Pligg site gets their own profile page, where they can add contact information, personal messages, an avatar and other information.

RSS Feeds

We’re big fans of using RSS feeds to follow the latest news from our favorite sites and that’s why we have added RSS functionality all over Pligg. You can subscribe to a user’s voting trends, the front page, upcoming page and categories.

Import RSS Feeds as News Articles

Import an existing site into Pligg by using Pligg’s RSS Import module. The Pligg RSS Import module checks subscribed RSS feeds automatically and adds them to your site. This technology gives you one more tool that will make your Pligg site less dependent on original content.

Sort Articles

News items are categorized, tagged, timestamped and attributed to authors, making articles easier for users to find relevant and fresh news items that appeal to them.

Live Ajax Newsfeed

Watch as news items appear instantly as updates become available on the “Live” page. Comments and Articles being added to your Pligg site are constantly appearing on active sites, letting your users keep an eye on the latest news available without having to even refresh their browser.

SEO Enhanced

We’ve done our best to help drive more traffic to your site by being as search engine friendly as possible. Our SEO methods will help get your site indexed faster and more often.

URL Blocklist

Don’t want to have your competitors submitting links to their sites? Blacklist them with Pligg’s built in URL Blocklist capability.

HTMLz hosting is compatible with the latest version of Pligg.

Pligg is free software, but they welcome donations.
