Is there a app in the builder to create forms? Not just contact forms but multiple questions?

Yes, additional to our contact forms, we also have cloud backend forms, With them you can create mutli steps forms with advanced behaviors.

Does it remove BLOAT CODE and doesn't load unneeded code? Does it make clean DIV and not dozens of DIV?

 the generated source is reasonably clean HTML/CSS and very light js by default and is served fast by AWS CDN and so will be web indexed by search engine

How does the 150K Translated characters work? When we will need more

When you translate a page in a different language you can use Google to pre-translate your page, it's this feature only that consumes translation characters

What exactly is exported with this option?

from our Code Editor, you can right click on "/" in the left column and click on Download ZIP archive, this will create a ZIP file containing all the HTML, CSS, JS, fonts, images and everything (also cloud functions and database) in 1 zip file

 I can export the code of this page and use it as a standalone page offline for show-off purposes?

Because some javascript is used for the menu and other things, you cannot see it offline because of browsers security on offline local files ... but if you drop all those files on a FTP or any hosting you will be able to view the site normally

Is this something that we can do on Appdrag or are we limited to plain HTML/CSS/JS?

it seems you are describing our Dynamic Datasource 
https://support.appdrag.com/blog/58-Dynamic-Data-Sources.html?category=13

Is the code clean/ well organized?

it's HTML5 / Bootstrap code, with Sections / Rows / Columns / elements and responsive style thanks to bootstrap css

Will we get future additions/features to our plan

You will have AppDrag update feature

How does the exporting/importing work?

You can export the whole website into a zip and import a whole zip into your project (in the Code Editor)

Can I use / import a plain static HTML Bootstrap 4 template to start from?

You can import it but you will not be able to use the pageBuilder. You will have to modify everyhting from our code editor.
The structure is different, that's why it can't work.

If we can't import a plain static HTML Bootstrap 4 template to start from, can we do some type of small modification to make it work?

Yes it's possible to add some classes to your HTML markup to make it work in the pagebuilder
I recommend you to check the source code of a page made with the PageBuilder in the code editor

Is there a way to alter the looks of your blogs, meaning can you add in category links, and assign blog posts to specific categories

yes of course, you can check our blog documentation here:
https://support.appdrag.com/blog/33-Add-Blog-Categories---Tags.html?category=9
https://support.appdrag.com/blog/34-Customize-Article-List.html?category=9
https://support.appdrag.com/blog/35-Customize-Blog-Details-Article-Page.html?category=9

Is it possible to load individual pages from other templates/ themes and insert them into a website to act as a starting point?

 I add this suggestion to our task list

How many photography / photo gallery site templates are available

Millions of photography are available on AppDrag thanks to our free loyalty librairy.
About our templates, we have +150 free templates available

Can we see some of the templates? maybe get a trial account to test

Yes you can create a free account and browse the template

Can I build a custom web app or marketplace with this drag-and-drop builder?

With the pagebuilder you will be able to do the frontend part and on add on your buttons some cloud actions to call the backend part (cloud functions)
More details & tutorials here: https://academy.appdrag.com

How do AddDrag handle images? Is it resized and compressed on the fly?
If I select a large image from pexels in the pagebuilder will it scale /resize it and compress it??

We optimized all the images to have it good quality and not to heavy

I don't see any information on the checkout page or pages. How flexible is it's design? For example -- can it be a single screen? multiple screens? does the image of the product appear next to the name

You can check the checkout page here: https://imgur.com/a/rM2RYHx
And you have options to inject CSS and JS on the checkout page (to change the layout, implement some custom features, ...)

Does "You can design the product page the way you like, your only limit is your imagination" on https://support.appdrag.com/blog/40-Customize-product-page.html?category=10 mean I can easily add what WordPress themes typically refer to as an extended description -- images and text below the product image

In the product description, you have an HTML field where you can add more text and images for a specific product. You can also include there videos (youtube, vimeo, ...)

Does Appdrag have a simple gated content functionality - i.e. submit an email to receive an emailed PDF or download from the website

To do that you have several options:
1) Put a form on your page, configure the fields of your form (name, phone, email, ...), then you can configure an action on form completed, like redirect to a download page or add a ZAPIER action ... to send a Newsletter template made in AppDrag Email marketing module, or with another system like mailchimp)
2) Another solution is to use our cloudbackend to save the email in a db + send a template of your email to your customer. We do provide ready-to-use sample cloud functions doing exactly this!

Can we use SHORTPIXEL? LAZY LOAD IMAGES? 

First of all, we do have an image optimizer that is already include in AppDrag so when you upload an image, it's optimized automatically.
We also handle lazy loading of images, it's activated by default but you can disable it if needed.

Do you have any direct integration in simple clicks to use, looking for google sheets data display in a table in appdrag websit?

In our API Builder we do have a sample function showing how to read data from a google sheet, but you'll need few lines of javascript to use it on your page ... If you are interested you can take 1H with our team to do it in screensharing with you. (not for free

How to handle customer website?
If I create and sell a webdesign/page to a customer, how do I then handle this fully over to the customer. So that the customer has full access to edit contents, images etc. But no access to change layout.
Is this even possible using your setup?

You can share your project with your customer and give them access either on AppDrag or on your Whitelabel version provided with AppSumo offer.
When you share you can select if they have access to the PageBuilder, if they can Publish, edit blog articles, edit shop products, edit newsletters, database, API..
For your specific question about giving them the ability to only modify content without affecting the layout I would either let them only access to Blog or create dynamic DataSource pages (https://support.appdrag.com/blog/58-Dynamic-Data-Sources.html?category=13) and give them access to the DataBase only.

I am hope for more especially for building membership type eCommerce sites? Maybe having a site template of a login type of site that we could just slide into and go maybe?

We have in our roadmap more of those training videos, some of them will focus more on the PageBuilder and some others will show different use cases, like how to create a subscription based membership. We also have plans to offer soon full-stack templates of apps (including a frontend and a backend), this will be a great starting point to create advanced dynamic websites

Do you have frontend components and accompanying logic to do AJAX operations? (For example filtering a table without coding and reloading the page)

We do have Triggers that you can set on any element, column, row, section, you can set a cloud backend action (AJAX with UI), or javascript actions (code)

Just bought this deal and created a template site and even after using the built optimization features the load time is 3 sec. Which is too slow. I am from Europe and would like to choose server region is that possible?

Your sites are served by AWS Cloudfront CDN, so once they are visited once, a cached copy will stay on the edges nodes (in 187 locations in the world) and will be served super quickly.
Don't hesitate to chat with us on AppDrag Chat support, our team will help you to optimize everything to reach crazy speed

Can we take source code and migrate to different hosting provider if client willing to shift from us?

Yes, you can export as a ZIP file the whole content of your website and host it somewhere else.

How do you handle tech support for our whitelabel customer accounts?

In whitelabel mode, our chat widget is not present (to not break the branding)
You can configure in your whitelabel settings your own chat plugin (intercom, tawk.to, or anything else)

Can you insert html code inside head section? Can we edit CSS?

Yes & Yes, you can do that from our Pagebuilder, in the page options or from the Code Editor, with full source code access

Can i update sites via mobile device?

You will need a computer to edit the pages in the pagebuilder
But on your mobile you can open the dashboard and see your stats, update your blog and shop

 How many templates you provide?

We provide +250 templates

 Is Arabic language supported?

Yes

Is there a way to access/export the analytics in an automated way or just in the dashboard?

For now only though the dashboard but we have plans in our roadmap to add acces to it though our API, CLI and NPM package

Is there in your roadmap a migration tool from WordPress to appdrag? and if one client want to leave appdrag and go with wordpress, how is the format of the data exported from the blog or shop

 Not really, technology is too different, but we do support importing POSTS from CSV. From our side you can export blog/shop products as CSV as well

Do you have integrations with any ESP's like Moosend, Active Campaign, Convertkit?
How do I connect a form submission to my email marketing platform

The Forms in PageBuilder can be sent to ZAPIER, and from there you can connect to most services. 
Another option is to embed a widget form provided by the remote service (Moosend, Active campaign, ...) on your page, you can do that in few click, here is an example for mailchimp but it's more or less the same for any other: https://integrations.appdrag.com/blog/56-MailChimp.html

 Can I add my own fonts? And google fonts?

Yes we have a font manager in the project settings in the page builder where we fetch Google Fonts API to list you their fonts and enable it on your project on a single click. If you're using a custom font you can import it in .ttf, .woff or .woff2 and we will automatically convert it into the other formats to make it works on Safari, IE, Chrome, Firefox…

Do you have some templates for Landing/Squeeze pages, and if not what can be used for it?

Yes we do have several landing pages templates and also full websites templates. Finally, creating your own or copying an existing one from anywhere on the web is pretty quick as well!

 Please contact us on the chat about this so we can discuss it a bit more and understand what would be attractive for you exactly

Backend
Backend

Is it possible to create and manage multi language sites just visually or low code and how would they behave when exported?

Yes you can translate your websites in multiple languages visually (can also be done with code if needed), you can find more details and demo GIF here: https://support.appdrag.com/blog/53-How-do-I-translate-my-website-.html?category=2
When you export it outside APPDRAG, the translations will remain as attributes of each HTML element, by default the website will be visible only in the main language once exported, but with few lines of JS or backend code, you can use the custom attributes to make the website multilanguages again.

 I see 500 rows free in a database does it mean we get maximum 500 enquiries in contact forms, for more are we need to pay? Please explain this feature mentioned in website

 Blog, shop & Contact forms don't count to the 500 lines quota! The 500 rows limit is only for the tables you create by yourself in our cloudbacken

Most of your competitors also support structured content and template language to create structured dynamic content, like FAQ, Reviews, Manuals etc. And product pages, custom menus etc. Is this something that we can do on Appdrag or are we limited to plain HTML/CSS/JS?

It seems you are describing our Dynamic Datasource : https://support.appdrag.com/blog/58-Dynamic-Data-Sources.html?category=13

You only support email forwarding -- you don't run your own mail servers, IMAP mailbox accounts, etc?

Indeed, but you can connect any other system through mx configuration. What is included is only emails forwards you can find more details here: https://support.appdrag.com/blog/68-Email-Service.html?category=6
You have several solutions:
1) Use emails forwards
or
2) Use an external mailbox provider (Gsuite, Zoho, selfhosted, ...)
or
3) keep your domain swith your current registrar and just connect it to your website hosted on appdrag, so you keep your current email provider

What kind of E-Commerce features are being implemented and when?

About the shop, here is our main roadmap points: Improve customization options (cart, checkout page, email templates), Document our javascript API so advanced users can customize it more easily
FYI our vision is not to be the easiest platform, but the most flexible & powerful.
We also plan to add later more features like upsales & subscriptions but we don't have any ETA yet for that

About Export code, it will be Html Static files? or php with SQL and I can Install on my server?

It will be a zip with all the resources of your website, and as your website is a combination of static files there's no PHP/MySql to export.

If I create an e-commerce website and use the backend to inject some future code (user login, esc.) into it, but decide to install it on a different hosting platform - the full code of my website will work the same way on the third party server or it will have to work on their hosting?

For a static website, of course you just have to copy the HTML/CSS/JS files on your remote server
If you use the cloud backend, you can export the DB to MySQL format and also download the API source code in Node.js
So you can host it on another server.

Is the codebackend used if my website consist of some pages and a blog? Just trying to see if 500 rows of db is used up by the blog posts like in WordPress.

If you are using the blog, it doesn't count on your Cloud Backend. it's another service

Why does the "Cloud DB" option is so limited (500 rows!)?
that way the product is only good for static/leanding pages.
is there a method to overcome this limitation?

CloudBackend is not include in our AppSumo offer but you can still buy a package just here: https://cloudbackend.appdrag.com/?anchor=PRICING
You can get up to 50 millions raw

 Cloud Backend with API BUILDER & Cloud Database? 

Unlike other CMS that are limited to frontend task (landing page, showcase websites), appdrag also provide a cloud backend, meaning you can create advanced features, dynamic content from a database or API's. More details about this here: https://cloudbackend.appdrag.com/ and here: https://support.appdrag.com/Help-Center.html?anchor=&category=13

How can i save item for me?

To save item, you have first to go on your settings and click on "I want to use AppDrag as a seller. To be able to publish templates and components into the marketplace"
After you will have to go on your sections and click on your right, on marketplace and save it to your items

Regarding your hosting, do you have verifiable data on your uptime?

You can check our status page about our production infrastructure: https://status.appdrag.com/

Since AppDrag has its own backend, is it exposed as APIs as well? (For example to integrate in a larger workflow)

 We do expose several endpoints to our backend here in this NPM package: https://www.npmjs.com/package/appdrag-cloudbackend

You please explain this in simple English: "500 rows of db"

It mean 500 rows of database. You will need this feature only if you want to build a backend with your website.

Do you have dynamic keyword feature?
Ex: domain.com?name=David&city=Texas in landing page name & city will be changed to David & Texas can we do like this

Not out of the box. You can do it easily with few line of JavaScript on the frontend part or with our Dynamic data source system.
You can check here: https://support.appdrag.com/blog/58-Dynamic-Data-Sources.html?category=13

If we need to use APIs as backend or consume some microservices, how could them be integrated with AppDrag in a nocode way?

You can create some functions without any code thanks to our Visual SQL technology, for more advanced use case (not CRUD) you can use all our supported languages (our favorite is Node.js)
From the frontend you can also call those functions without code by configuring "cloud actions" calling a cloud function, this is described in 6 short video tutorials here: https://academy.appdrag.com/

The most similar plan seems to be the Pro Plan bit I wonder what features arent included (I read transactional emials arent but what about e.g. API features?)

This deal is about Cloud CMS, including access to all CMS tools like the PageBuilder, Code Editor, Blog Editor, Shop Editor, Domains, SSL. It's also giving you acces to the free tier of Cloud Backend. (500 db rows, 10 000 seconds of API time, 30 requests per minute) More details are available here: https://cloudbackend.appdrag.site/?anchor=PRICING

GDPR and Co are an issue these days: Can I choose AWS hosting region to be e.g. in Germany?

Good news is we are fully compliant we GDPR, more details about that here: https://appdrag.com/Privacy-Statement.html
Also our servers are located in Ireland (Europe), In AWS region EU-WEST-1, then we use the worldwide CDN from AWS Cloudfront, to serve & cache your websites everywhere in the world super quickly

 Is the storage related to static assets or is there a DB attached? Custom fields? API with graph support?

The storage is only about the static assets, the DB limitations are in terms of rows only (500 in free mode, 50 000 rows for $10, 250K for $25, 1 million for $50 ...)
Our cloud functions give you full power about how you want to expose your data, you can write your functions if Go, Python, Ruby, Java, .NET, SQL, and ... Node.js, we recommend the later, it's coming with 1 million packages available on NPM and a lot of ready to use pre made API functions samples. I know that some of our customers are also using graphQL with it (with the library Apollo GraphQL)
More details about the CloudBackend pricing is available here: https://cloudbackend.appdrag.site/?anchor=PRICING

Do you have any video showcases, walkthroughs available?
Again, this is to gain clarity. The deal itself already is pretty much appealing - so is the solution and its capabilities.

Yes we do have video tutorials (with transcript) available here: https://academy.appdrag.com/ They are about how to use the Pagebuilder for the frontend part but also how to use our cloud database and API Builder to create advanced websites

 Please contact us on the chat about this so we can discuss it a bit more and understand what would be attractive for you exactly

SSL & Domain & Subdomain
SSL & Domain & Subdomain

Does AppDrag handle SSL, through something like LetsEncrypt, or do we need to do this ourselves via our domain registrar?

For domain purchased with us or transfered to us we provide a free SSL certificate, it's using AWS ACM providing a 12 month autorenewing A+ grade SSL certificate!

How does cache work for external domains connected to appdrag?

Cache will work as well with external domains, we are providing for everywebsite (also external domains) a cloudfront instance that will serv & cache your website all around the world

 Is there a dev/stage mode to preview changes prior prod or at least support to use a subdomain for that? Would the subdomain , cost“ 1/5 site counts?

Yes! We do have 2 environments: Preview and Production
So when you edit your page and save, this is changing only the Preview env,
Then If you press the "Publish" button, this will go to production (your live website)
If you want to create another website on a subdomain it's possible, it will use 1 of your 5 credits indeed (you can stack up to 10 codes

If we have third party SAAS sites on subdomains on our existing sites eg. a helpdesk, Dubb video can these be mapped ok with the main AppDrag sites

If you ask about a regular website hosted on appdrag but domain is an external domain yes, np at all.
If you are talking about the main Whitelabel domain, as long as the main domain is transfered to appdrag it will work, and you will be able to configure CNAMEs for other subdomains to point to third parties SaaS services.
If that's not possible, I recommend you to purchase a cheap domain (we have some cheap extensions in the $3/year range) and dedicate it to your white label, because projects created on your WL will be on your WL domain, eg: customer1.yourwhitelabeldomain.com

What happens to our websites if we don’t re-subscribe after the year?

After expiration the website will be disabled, you can reactivate it up to 60 days after expiration, you can also export the website as a ZIP file and host it somewhere else.

 When I transfer the domain to you, will you be charging renewal for one more year?

 Yes. the date for the renewal will be reset.

 Are you a domain registrar. If not, who is your domain registrar

 We work with a couple of domain registrar partner

Can we have a multilanguage site that maps to different domain names? ie: you have english mapped to .com and german to .de 

Unfortunately, it's not possible but in another way, you don't need it. the website will show you the language of your browser so if your browser is in English, you will have the website in English...
All the extensions can redirect to one domain and everything will work perfectl

 If we transfer the domain, what will be the name server? Will the name server white-labelled?

Name server will be ns1.dnsowl.com, ns2.dnsowl.com and ns3.dnsowl.com

 If I buy the cloud backend pro plan for $10/month what means 3 recurrent tasks, it's 3 per site/domain? or just 3 for all sites?

It's per backend, you can use a backend for just 1 site or multiples sites if you want and the recuring jobs are for the backen

The cloud functions/api have an additional price?

No, the only way to get more is to upgrade

I have an URL with .null when i try to publish an app with a white label, why

the user have not yet attached a White label domain in the white label setting

If I stack 10 codes and after de year I need more sites, can I merge more codes in the same white-label domain?

After the appsumo operation is finished it won't be possible to increase numbers of codes. But yes we can merge different accounts codes

 Can i use this for blog?

 Of course, it's a core feature

 I have my domain, can I pinpoint blog.mydomain.com to your page?

yes, you just have to create CNAME of your actual registrar

Is this by domain or can I have sub domains as different e-commerce stores (counted as one domain)?

In fact it's per website, so sub domains are counted as different apps. Also please note that you can have your website + blog + shop in the same app! so the 3 of them count as 1 website

Could you please provide more details on what you mean by getting a domain extensions to host your white label dashboard?

Your white label domain will be use as a dashboard to access all your projects (or projects shared with a customer). for that we use www.yourdomain.com
But the whitelabel will also be used to create subdomains for your projects, let's say you create 2 projects, they will be created as subdomains like this yourproject1.yourdomain.com and yourproject2.yourdomain.com, of course later you can also attach another domain name to each project (the real domain name to serve the customer website, www.customerdomain.com)
This white label domain will be used both for your WL dashboard and for your own projects created in your whitelabe

 Can i just leave my domains at their current registrar (namecheap)? is there some advantage to moving the domain to a different registrar?

Yes, you can leave your domains with your existing registrar and connect them to your websites on appdrag,
you can also activate SSL on your external domain for free

Is this by domain or can I have sub domains as different e-commerce stores (counted as one domain)?

Each website that you create is considered as a "unit", let's say you have a domain www.test.com and you have a website on that domain, and now you want to create another website for a subdomain like subdomain.test.com, this second website is counted as another unit. Another thing to know, if you have 1 website and you attach different domains to it, this still count as only 1 unit

  Can i buy domain from.your service?

yes, you can check here our domain and pricing: https://appdrag.com/Domains.htmlrar

Can we also just use the builder and self host? In Brizy Cloud one can do just that… and updates in the cloud reflect onto the published site (pull). How does this compare?

you can export the websites, but the CMS is not self-hostable yet. We do have plans in our roadmap for this year to have a self-hosted version based on docker.

 Do you provide any other payment platforms such as authorize.net or customized gateways for example?

Thanks to our CloudBackend, you can integrate with ANY payment provider

I'm interested in knowing more details about ecommerce. Do you charge any extra fees?

We provide e-commerce with standard features. We don't charge any fees of you build a website using AppDrag. Also we don't add any fees per transaction, you will only have to pay the fees from the payment provider (Stripe or Paypal).

You mentioned that we can point our own domain to app drag servers.
So if I’m running my DNS thru cloudflare, would that negate the need for the 25gb bandwidth?

if you use clouflare in front of your website bandwidth will be unlimited

Is there a limit on  of subdomains?

you can create up to 250 subdomains on a domain

What type of hosting is this ? Shared web hosting, cloud based web hosting

The website is served by a pool of servers from the AWS CloudFront and AWS lambda servers

 Can we put an external link to videos (YT, Vimeo, Publitio, ...) to subdomains, and also add tracking code for Link and Click trackers (JotURL, AdsBridge, ....) ?

you can create URL redirections and also use URL Rewriting to do special things like yourdomain.com/myvid to be displaying to a special page of your site, on that page you can either add your trackers code or redirect to a special link (your video or another tracker)
you can create up to 250 subdomains on a domain

 Please contact us on the chat about this so we can discuss it a bit more and understand what would be attractive for you exactly

Bandwidth
Bandwidth

Bandwidth is PER MONTH and renewable ?

Yes it's per month, renewed on the 1st day of each mont

About Bandwith, if I understand 25 GB per site, equals approximately to 5,000 visits for a site of 5 MB it's correct? If I exceed the bandwith in one site, stop working? or nothing happens and you charges at the end of the month for the surplus?

If you are talking about unique visitors this is correct, Also we recommend to have 1 to 2MB max per page (even if you can do a lot more). With 1MB per page we are talking about 25,0000 unique visitors.
When you reach 80% of your monthly bandwidth you will receive a warning, same at 100%, in both case you have an option to add more bandwidth (price is $0.25 per GB

What will happen if I exceeded the 25GB bandwidth allocation per site? For example, I reached 30GB on one site. How will I be charged and how much will it be? 

You will receive an alert when you reach 80% of your bandwidth, and another one when you reach 100%
At any time you can add additional bandwidth for your website, and it's not expiring, it's used when your main bandwidth monthly allowance is depleted.
Pricing for additional bandwidth is $5 for 20GB, $15 > 60GB, $25 > 100GB and so on

If I purchase 1 code, but use ONLY ONE WEBSITE, can the storage and bandwidth be combined?

 No sorry, all the limits are per website and cannot be combined

If, for example, video content is served from Vimeo/etc, would that count towards the monthly bandwidth? 

 No this don't count in your website traffic if the content is hosted somewhere else (youtube, vimeo, ...)

 Please contact us on the chat about this so we can discuss it a bit more and understand what would be attractive for you exactly

Some questions
Some questions

What happens to our websites if we don’t re-subscribe after the year?

After expiration the website will be disabled, you can reactivate it up to 60 days after expiration, you can also export the website as a ZIP file and host it somewhere else.

What’s the difference between this and weblium?

I never heard about them before, I've just checked their website, it seems to be a nice solution as well. Main difference with us will be that we provide full source code access and also we have a Cloud Backend (Database + API Builder), you will need that if you want to create advanced dynamic websites.
As far as I know, we are the only one on the market offering a full-stack combo with Cloud CMS & Cloud Backend

Can e commerce be used to sell digital downloads

Yes, there's an option for digital goods

What indian payment gateways have integration with this builder? Other than stripe and paypal 

Right now, we support only Stripe and PayPal but thanks to our CloudBackend, you can integrate with ANY payment provider

 Is there a dev/stage mode to preview changes prior prod or at least support to use a subdomain for that? Would the subdomain , cost“ 1/5 site counts?

Yes! We do have 2 environments: Preview and Production

Then If you press the "Publish" button, this will go to production (your live website)
If you want to create another website on a subdomain it's possible, it will use 1 of your 5 credits indeed (you can stack up to 10 codes

How do you compare to Bubble.io, Boundlesslabs, Adalo or Webflow as website logic/conditional rules are concerned?

There is No-Code solutions, we are a Low-code solution, difference is we are producing standard source code that can be exported and modified by developers with regular skills (HTML, CSS, JS, MySQL, Node.js). Where some other solutions are locked-in (cannot be exported) and are 100% proprietary and so limited to the options offered by the tool, this is not our case

 Is it full support RTL?

Yes we support entirely RTL, to enable it you just have to go to the translation tool and say the language of your page is Arabic or whatever RTL language.

Can we choose the billing start date? We buy the offer now and activate the codes before 60 days

Billing date start when you will activate the code. So if you buy our offer today, you will have to activate it on the 13th of March maximum.

When you say "your website is served by millions of servers across the world provided by AWS" Amazon Web Service, how come can it be "millions"?

The website is served by a pool of servers from the AWS CloudFront and AWS lambda servers. They provide the million of servers across the world.

If we wanted to build a logged in site with user authentication, would we need to set this up with sites like www.auth0.com, if so, how challenging would this be and do you have any other options that would be easily implemented at a low price point

No need for auth0, you can do this with our integrated cloud backend! check our video tutorials here about how to do exactly this! https://academy.appdrag.com

In the shop/ecommerce it's possible to make a recurrent subscription for a servicr or digital product, for example, a month or a year?

In our standard shop it's not possible to handle subscriptions
you can either use a simple paypal button element and configure it as a subscription or implement something more complex with our cloud backend and any payment provider

It's possible SSO with office365 for login for enterprise sites?

Yes! passeport also support SAML used for enterprise SSO: https://www.npmjs.com/package/passport-saml but there is tons of other packages on NPM handling SSO
Our roadmap is not public for now, this may change in the future

 It's possible login with social logins (facebook, gmail, outlook) ?

Yes, you can also handle social logins (facebook, google, twitter, linkedin, outlook, ...) to do that you can use a NPM package like https://www.npmjs.com/package/passport. We have plans to publish more tutorials describing social logins

Some questions of Appdrag
Some questions of Appdrag

This made me very curious so I went on the AppDrag website to create a free account.
I wanted to test the functionality before making the purchase.
But I get an error message "Sorry but AppDrag is not yet available in your country".
Why would you do that?

indeed there is a list of 12 countries where we need an approval step before activating your account. We have just approved your account, try to login again and you should be in

Does this have NATIVE analytics and A/B split testing capability?

We do have Basics Native Analytics. You can still integrate easily your code for Google Analytics.
We cannot do A/B split testing but you can still duplicate a project to do A/B testing

If we build a site with AppDrag and export to host elsewhere, is there also an import feature

You can upload a file thanks to our code editor but you will not be able to use our Page Builder.

 Infra & Security? 

I've written a whitepaper about our technology, infrastructure & security, you can find it here:
https://appdrag.com/docs/AppDrag_White_Paper_v1.3.pdf

You compared to Wordpress and Wix. So it seems you are targeting the customer of their
platform as well. Do you offer any importer from those platforms?
second: which payment modules support for Turkiye

1) We are very different because the frontend part of your website is static files served super quickly by AWS CloudFront CDN and the backend part is Serverless hosted in AWS Lambda, so instead of being hosted in just 1 server in 1 datacenter, your websites are served by a pool of millions of servers!
Because of those reasons it's not possible to import from wordpress or Wix ... but it's totally possible to export to standard HTML/CSS/JS :)
2) Out of the box, right now we support Stripe & Paypal, I know that Paypal works in Turkiye
But thanks to our cloud backend module it's possible to integrate with any other payment provider (with code)

 Do you have public roadmap?

Our roadmap is not public for now, this may change in the future

About versions of a website, appdrag offers backups? monthly, weekly or daily? both frontend and database

Static files are saved on AWS S3, there is 6 copies of your data, and we keep versioning of all your changes for 30 days (this allows you to restore a previous versions easily). For the database there is a daily backup (to S3), and the cloud functions are save in S3 as well

the UI could use a hefty polish. Any plans for a more modern look?
Also you say I have access to the source code. Would that be the source code of the builder?

We do have a new design in our roadmap, it's planned for this summer.
What is provided is the source code of the websites, not the builder.

Are we able to install php scripts to work on the web hosting server so that I can create a membership site using Appdrag?

You can create a membership site using Appdrag but not with PHP.
Our tech are :
HTML, REACT, Angular or Vue for the frontend
Node.js, GO, Python, .net,... for the backend

This made me very curious so I went on the AppDrag website to create a free account.
I wanted to test the functionality before making the purchase.
But I get an error message "Sorry but AppDrag is not yet available in your country".
Why would you do that?

indeed there is a list of 12 countries where we need an approval step before activating your account. We have just approved your account, try to login again and you should be in

What are the current technical possibilities for affiliate marketers using AppDrag and what are your future plans for this

About afiliate marketing. Normaly, thanks to our code editor and CloudBackend you can manage everything

Are AppDrag sites compatible with WebARX, which has been an AppSumo deal in the past. It is an app that "keeps your sites safe with a web application firewall and vulnerability monitoring"?

main cores of AppDrag are Security & Performance, we do have 13 layers of security (some provided by AWS and some in-house), we exist since 2016 and we got exactly 0 websites hacked!
Also, we do have some BIG companies using our technology and they are doing monthly security penetration tests ... and we always get the maximum grade

Also do you have a booking app?

We don't have a booking app but you can use a third party app or do it yourself with CloudBackend.

Currently, there are ongoing efforts by the lawyers who may sue the website owners if their websites do NOT offer ACCESSIBILITY (WACG compliance).
Does AppDrag address this Accessibility or at least guide the developer what to do?

AppDrag do not address directly accessibility, but you can add a third party script on your page to handle this. Userway have a free plugin that can be embedded anywhere including on AppDrag, check here: https://userway.org/pricing/widget

If I download the source code from the web - will there be appdrag branding in the code?

In the exported source code there is few references to appdrag: appdrag.css, appdrag.js, and few CSS class names
It's not really an issue usually, and you can still do a mass rename & replace on the exported file if it's really an issue for your use case. We do have plans in our roadmap to improve that.

What about ADA compliance with the websites built using AppDrag? Are there any suggestions given to keep the website ADA compliant

We don't have ADA features, but you can embed a third party tool to have

How is security handled? I know you can't get into all of that here in the comments but do you have an deep dive into how you secure the site we developed

Two main cores of appdrag are Security & Performance, we do have 13 layers of security (some provided by AWS and some in-house), we exist since 2016 and we got exactly 0 websites hacked!
Also we do have some BIG companies using our technology and they are doing monthly security penetration tests ... and we always get the maximum grade
