https, security and members websites
All full members that have websites as part of their membership, will now enjoy the following features:-
- Secure encrypted website at no extra cost – normally a certified SSL website would cost $100 or more annually
- Full diversion to a mobile version to allow smartphone users to book on smaller screens.
Additionally we are working on a fully responsive design for members websites that will display in any device from desktop PC to small smartphones – this will be available as a free upgrade sometime next month.
These changes are very important as our main site ( https://book-a-bnb.com ) becomes more popular with desktop and mobile users alike – try a search on Google for “Book a B&B” on your PC or phone.

Are We Mobile Friendly?
A number of members have asked ARE WE MOBILE FRIENDLY ?
This means can our members B&Bs be FOUND, SEEN and BOOKINGS made by mobile phone users. The simple answer is YES
Some months ago we introduced http://m.book-a-bnb.com – this site is compatible with all mobile devices tablets and smartphones.
If anyone using these devices lands on any one of our websites or websites of our full members, they are automatically diverted to the mobile site above where every member full or associate has a booking page. This is a mobile friendly site designed for specifically for tablet & mobile phone users
Additionally, we are working on a free upgrade to our full members websites a truly responsive website design for members that will display and work on all devices.
This will be available next month hopefully and you will be given the option to upgrade free of charge – we normally upgrade our members websites every 3 or 4 years to keep pace with changes in technology.
For Associate members that want a mobile friendly web site to replace their existing websites – You will be able to upgrade to full membership and benefit from a mobile friendly website – plus the added bonus of commission free bookings.
