    Hi, How is it best to set up an account so I can design and build sites for various clients? As I want clients to be able to edit their own sites…

    Currently, the best way for setting up sites for users is to create an account via:

    http://www.basekit.com/developers

    It is best that you use an email and password that is safe for them to use also so they can login and edit their site. It will also mean that when you come to pass over the site to a user, the account can be easily transferred over to them.

    We are looking at plans to extend the product to deal with `central developer accounts` and `site level editor accounts`. If we generate enough traction for this request, we will place it on our road map.

    Hi,

    I had more or less the same question. So I take it that if we need to build websites for multiple clients, we can create a developer account, build a custom site, set CRM controls and then have the customer opt in for a basekit package (I believe there are three) and select our template. Is that how it works?

    How many templates can we build with a single developer account? And also what is the pricing like (I know we can sign up for a free account, but just checking if there are any additional costs involved).

    Thanks!

    Hi @Schezarnie,

    You can have as many developer accounts as you want. The only the only
    cost comes when you add a custom domain to the account; you will then
    upgrade to the package you want.

    Hello, I also would like to create websites for clients. I have a developer account. If I well understood your answer, I have to change my email and password by the email and password of my client ? How can I access the website after if any modification to be done ? Could you explain what is the aim of having a developer account if we cannot manage various clients inside, I am not sure to understand ? Thanks for your feedback. Xav

    Currently this is exactly how it would work. It would be a one site /
    one account holder policy for simplicity. You would have to change the
    username and password to the end user, so they have access.

    We have coming on our road map:

    • site transfers to a different users
    • multi account access to a single site

    Until then, you will have to change the account details to the user's
    email address so they have access.
