Hey there! I have some bad news, and I have some good news...
I have developed Holiday Site Central back in 2006, and I have given it mostly free of charge for everyone in the past 14 years.
A few of you have paid a minimal subscription to help me keep the service hosted, and I am very thankful for this.
A few weeks ago, my hosting provider has started to be extremely unreliable with lots of down service.
As a consequence the good 99.99% always-on service I have offered for over a decade has suffered big time.
I can only apologise for this, although there was not much I was able to do.
As part of the inconvenience, if you have embedded a HolidaySiteCentral booking calendar into your website, it will stop showing up.
In addition, the website was developed with technologies of year 2004...
Although I always tried to maintain the service and offer good value, it was starting to get dated and more difficult to maintain.
For all the reasons listed above, I have decided to redevelop a modern website with a better hosting, better service, better features
My service is now hosted on a mainstream 100% always ON provider (Amazon) and with a little bit of time, I will make available all features needed by a holiday rental landlord, or a small hotel
, starting with the booking calendar
It is still early days, but I have released an operational solution
that you can use right now.
At the moment, the website only accepts login via Facebook, although I will add more login possibilities in the future (if you need a particular one soon, just tell me).
I have also implemented an automated synchronization of the calendar
, initially with AirBnB, but although I have not tested with all providers, it shall work well with mainstream rental websites.
Also, although I have not implemented an import of past calendar information from HolidaySiteCentral into your new calendar, I believe that the import from alternative third party will satisfy most of you.
Like with HolidaySiteCentral, the booking calendar from Calenda'Sync can be embedded into your website
I also plan to let the owners update their calendars directly from their web page
, which will give you back a bit of time while doing your admin tasks.
Finally, this new service will be kept free of charge for a few months
, until I get all features delivered, and then it is possible that I will ask for a modest contribution for those who use the service more intensively.
Thank you for the more than 15,000 home owners who have subscribed to Holiday Site Central in the many years since I started offering the service.
I hope you will appreciate, use, and support the new offer that I am now delivering.
If you have any question about either your past content with Holiday Site Central, or request about new features, or how to get your new calendar uploaded onto your website, just send an email to : info [at] holidaysitecentral [dot] com
With my warmest regards and whishing you all the best!
