If you don't already have a website or would like to design a new one, we recommend creating a site through one of the options listed below.
Mybookings, the Cloudbeds booking engine, is compatible with most standard design templates. This means that you can take reservations directly through your website and the reservations will go into myallocator and myfrontdesk seamlessly.

- URL: http://www.wix.com/

- Note: If you are a myfrontdesk customer, you will want to make sure to not use Wix's booking engine since it also functions as a PMS, which will cause availability and rates issues. For further information, click here.
- URL: https://www.tumblr.com/
- How they describe themselves: "Post anything (from anywhere!), customize everything, and find and follow what you love. Create your own Tumblr blog today."
- Note: Tumblr is primarily a microblogging and social networking platform, but they do offer the ability to use a custom domain and configure your blog so that it functions as an actual website. Good fit for smaller hostels already engaged in social media.
