Elixir Graphic's Adam Shiver releases "Atom" theme for RapidWeaver

Professional, versatile, and beautiful. Atom is a theme that is perfect for just about any sort of site — blog, portfolio, business, personal, anything you can think up. This is probably his best theme ever, and we have already purchased our copy. It costs $14.95, but you can get a 15% discount with the coupon code SPLITTHEATOM until February 8, 2011.


Mac App Store results in 100% more sales

Is the Mac App Store good?
It seems like customers are voting with their feet, and the launch of the Mac App Store has not just helped Realmac Software sell more copies of RapidWeaver, but also indirectly increased our sales. Asking some of my colleagues at DV Host, I found out that we are all buying more apps. Why? Because it’s incredibly convenient, there’s no need to deal with the hassle of license keys, and software companies have lowered their prices. LifeHacker recently published an article about some of the benefits of the App Store.

Over the past few days, we have noticed this effect filter through to us. As more new people are using RapidWeaver to build websites, they are beginning to look for quality RapidWeaver hosting. As a result, we have seen a 100% upsurge in sales. Here’s a BIG WELCOME to all our new customers, we love you and we are dedicated to providing you the best and most reliable RapidWeaver web hosting anywhere!

RapidWeaver 5 has landed

Originally billed to be released during the summer, RapidWeaver 5 is finally here, and it looks like it has been worth the wait! The new version features an overhauled user interface, 6 all-new themes bringing the total number of built-in themes up to 45, a new HTML and XML site map generator with automatic search engine submission, bookmark manager and more. Perhaps our favourite new feature is the new Resources manager, which allows you to manage all your files in a single place. This is very handy when you want to offer PDF documents and other downloads from your website.
