Local company launches new website builder

Guyanese Tech Engineer Miguel Gurchuran has introduced a state-of-the-art website builder which he says will challenge the manner in which websites are managed in Guyana.

Sites.gy, Gurchuran says, is a free, state-of-the-art, responsive and user-friendly service that is simple to access and requires no coding. Additionally, Sites.gy provides e-commerce stores and blogging options as well as stock images and animation effects.

“What we are offering allows designers to display products and services to potential customers in just a few clicks,” Gurchuran says, adding that such content as is subsequently added will adjust itself to various compatible devices including laptops, tablets, mobile phones and smart watches.

Gurchuran insists that Sites.gy’s “drag and drop” feature is not only impressive but easy to learn. He says that the focus of the initiative is on the creation of income-generating opportunities for anyone who possesses a computer with an internet service and some measure of design skills. “What we are hoping to do is to create a number of webtrepreneurs who can then successfully seek out financially lucrative projects both locally and internationally,” Gurchuran told Stabroek Business.

Sites.gy offers interested persons the opportunity to build websites at no cost with both unlimited bandwidth and unlimited posting. However, premium accounts can be made available at a cost that allows for domain registration, and live tech support to be added to each website.

A computer technician for 23 years and a network administrator for 17, Gurchuran is also the owner of EMTEC, a print, marketing and automated business solutions provider as well as the popular Java Coffee Bar.

The recent launch of Sites.gy coincided with an information and demonstration forum and a number of free online webinars and tutorials. Gurchuran says that young people from various parts of the country will be selected to receive training as “webtrepreneurs after which they will be marketed as sites-certified designers.”
