YikeSite History

Jeff Ward and Animikii Inc. launched YikeSite in 2007 as a simple way of creating easily updated websites that could can be maintained by his clients.

A few years later it was expanded to allow web entrepreneurs to brand YikeSite as their own, and make recurring income.

Arni Mikelsons established Northern Village to provide website services to a full range of companies and organizations. In 2008, Northern Village started reselling the YikeSite service as VillageCMS.com and went onto develop a successful web business that serves charities, businesses and universities.

Jeff and Arni came together in 2014 to take YikeSite to a new level and made it so not only is the CMS easy to use for clients, but it's also easy for use as web professionals to create the websites. This was the basis for a good services business, however, hardly a new idea.

YikeSite was taken to a new level by founding YikeSoftware Inc. The goals were to:

  • Make it incredibly easy to create a new site, or duplicate an existing one.
  • Create a Website Dashboard where all the useful website information would be presented and ensure it would be easy to manage all aspects of websites from it.
  • Have robust permissions, so web agency staff can be allocated to different websites.
  • Embrace “content driven websites” as a building block of website creation.
  • Work with clients to build their business and brand.

These goal have been reached, and it is now available to simplify the management of many websites. Try it out, and let us know what you think. If you need some help, please don't hesitate to contact us.
