Self Hosted Sites

I would like to be able to self host the sites I create with Webydo... is that possible? I don't mind paying for a premium account, but I would like the security of knowing that I have all the files (and control of them) should your company ever close or if I decide to use different tools to create future websites after creating some with Webydo. From the videos and tutorials, I don't forsee that happening (it's seems like an awesome tool) but you never know and I want control of what I create.

    We are happy to announce that you may now export a site created with Webydo.
    By doing so, you will download a file containing all the site’s pages and media.

    How To Do It:
    In the Dashboard, click the “Settings” icon next to the desired site, and click “Download Website As A Zip Backup File.”

    Have fun!

        Peter,

        Yes. You will lose CMS features if you choose to host your site yourself and not with Webydo.

        How do root the domain if I use my own hosting? Since there is no Index file in the downloaded zip the domain always displays error 403.

        I also would like to know if it will be possible to download the site's files and self hosted. I would also pay for a premium.

        I agree and would have no problem paying the premium, but do want to host my own site with my current hosting company. I have other sites I manage already at the other hosting company.
        When do you expect we can do this, if ot already?
        Thanks! Love the site, btw.

        Absolutely, we would vote for it too. Thought this should have been possible given this is a beautiful platform

        I think Nonny means that they want to be able to host their Webydo sites on the server of their choice. I agree, I already have a large server with all of my sites, and I'd like to keep all of my stuff there, if possible.

        Hey - I think you basically mean that we should have an option to backup all files to our own servers or personal computer and not just on Webydo's cloud in preparation for a "rainy day". Right?

        I like the idea and I vote YES :)

        Long live the Webydo cloud!
