From inception, plexus2 has been designed to facilitate efficient construction and maintenance of feature-rich, database-driven Internet and intranet sites. You need to have only a basic understanding of the structure of your information in order to utilise even its most powerful features. plexus2 is built around relational databases, and even constructs them implicitly for you, but it does not require you to know anything about indexes, joins, SQL, forms or writing complex queries for the myriad ways that you need to extract your information. plexus2 allows you to concentrate your efforts on entering, maintaining, publishing and reporting your information.

Begin by giving consideration to the following:

  • What are the objectives of my site?
  • Who is its target audience?
  • What information must be available on the site?
  • In what form(s) should the information be presented?
  • From which locations does my target audience need to access the information?

The answers to these questions will assist you to identify whether your site should be based on the Internet, an intranet delivered on your local area network (LAN), or an intranet delivered over a wide area network (WAN). If your site is to be based on the Internet, one of our plexus2 Hosting Packs may be suitable. If your site is to be based on your intranet, you may wish to consider purchasing one or more plexus2 Server Packs. If you need assistance in arriving at this decision, please do not hesitate to contact one of our helpful sales advisors.

plexus2 Hosting Packs provide cost-effective bundles to satisfy a wide range of common web site and small-to-medium database requirements. You can choose the pack that best suits your site and budget. All hosting packs allow you to update your site from any Internet-connected location ... and you don't have to worry about setting up or maintaining your own server. Further information can be found under Purchase Options.
