    I see xsitepro have closed :(

    Was my first ever software I used for my websites, I know a few members here use it as well.

    Still able to use, but no more updates or new versions.

    Owner of the software couldn't find a buyer to take it forward.

    I really liked this software, shame, looks like wordpress for me now.

    Was not a huge fan of xsitepro when I tested it years ago. Yet it did seem easier to use compared to others in the market. I think Wordpress would be an easy move considering it's adoption rate.

    Seems like the owner had some health issues hope he is ok - http://paulsmithson.com/blog/2013/11/27/the-future-of-xsitepro

    Yes James I know a few people did not like the software, but for the older generation like me it was great.

    The other thing I liked about it was all the website files are held on your computer which is a great backup.

    I've had so many wordpress sites hacked over the years and now do backups all the time, just have to remember.
