Building your website on the internet can be a fun and exhilarating process, especially when you finally get to see your website online and customers flowing in. The process though, to get things set up can sometimes be confusing – especially if you don’t know what you need. We’ve recently had a large influx of requests regarding a new service called Kajabi.

Kajabi is an all-in-one business management platform that includes the ability to manage Products, Websites, Payments, Email, Landing Pages, Pipelines, Analytics, Customers (People), and Mobile Communications. Primarily, this is used for marketing Online Courses, Membership sites, or other resources similar to this.

In contrast, the FTG Hosting platform – cPanel is primarily dedicated to Web Hosting and Design services, specifically tailoring to integrate with providers instead of providing an all-in-one stop. We allow you to choose your framework (WordPress, OpenCart, Etc.) and we can even build your website for you.

So what does this actually mean for you as a consumer?

To compare the two, there are a few key differences to note between these products:

  • We are not a marketing provider – Which means we do not provide email marketing services, or pipeline management services
  • Kajabi is meant for full business management – FTG Hosting is designed specifically for website and email-based services only.
  • Support is equally matched – We provide the same levels of support, just different services.
  • We provide unlimited landing pages – However, this is something you pay for per-page, instead of having unlimited pages at a higher monthly cost.
  • We Allow Flexibility – This means that you can pick your plan, pick your platform, pick your payment provider, all based on what you need and when you need it

As you can see, Kajabi and FTG Host are two very different platforms, designed for different things. One focuses more on whole-business development, while we specialize more in online presence and hosting services. While you can still get an invoicing system and a CRM through our platform at no extra charge, there is more setup work involved if you wish to custom-build a solution. Kajabi has focused on keeping this simple, while we have focused on giving you the flexibility to choose.
