Now you can create your own holiday home website design using the QuickontheNet.com easy site builder.
If you're in the accommodation industry, or if you rent out your holiday home as an additional source of income, this is a 'must-have' business tool. It's ideal if you own a holiday home, bed and breakfast, guest house or hotel.
Our holiday home website templates have a number of important features to help you run your holiday home business:
Online Booking Form

Domain Name (Web Address: www.myholidayhomename.com)
1. Online Booking Form
Now you can receive customer bookings online using our booking form. Make no mistake, this is about increasing the business opportunity from your property investment!
How to make a Holiday Home Booking Form
It's very simple. The customer fills out the form on your website, clicks the [Submit] button and you get a holiday home booking request email message immediately. The email booking contains the requested booking dates and the number of guests attending, along with the customer contact details (email, phone, name etc).
If your property is based at a popular holiday destination, customers can use the booking form to submit advance bookings directly to your email inbox. It's quick and simple! We believe this makes our holiday home website templates ideal for:
Holiday Cottage Retreats

Beach Resort Apartments
British Beach Chalets
Self-catering Holiday Accommodation
Vacation Condo Rental
Real Estate Developments
Winter Skiing Apartments

2. Photo Gallery
As you know, advertising your business in the local media is very expensive. Regardless of the costs, the classified ads along with your entry in the yellow pages will never capture the spirit of your hotel or holiday home.
We show you how to create your own photo gallery and give your website visitors a guided tour of your holiday home and its guest rooms.
At QuickontheNet.com, it's so easy to add pictures of your property. You can make a listing of thumbnail images (mini-pictures) and brief descriptions of the photos, which link or click-through to large pictures and full descriptions of the images. Example: Self-catering Holiday.
3. Search Engine Optimisation
All of our holiday home websites are indexed by all major search engines, including:
We have designed our property site builder in such a way that each web page on your holiday home website can have its own page listing on a search engine index. This can give your property a significant amount of exposure on the search engines and pull in more traffic from the travel industry and holiday makers alike.

5. Domain Name (Web Address)
What is a domain name? This is your unique web address for you accommodation business e.g. www.myholidayhomename.com. It is estimated that there are more than 60 million registered domain names. If you want an international flavour, go for a .COM, otherwise country codes such as .CA for Canada and .CO.UK for the United Kingdom are widely used top level domains.
For domain registration, check out our preferred suppliers. Register yours today!
If you are purchasing your 'own domain' to use with your holiday home website design at www.QuickontheNet.com, we recommend 123-reg, where you can buy the following types of web address extensions:
.CO.UK United Kingdom
.ORG.UK United Kingdom
You do not need to buy a hosting solution from your domain name provider, as your website will be hosted by QuickontheNet.com as part of our service. However, you may wish to buy a business email package with your domain, so that you can create business email accounts e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to Register a Domain Name
Enter your domain name precisely (after 'www.) and click ‘GO’.
Select your preferred domain name(s) and then click 'add to basket'.
Click 'continue' (top right).
To use our website service, please select 'Domain only' - you do not need to buy web hosting (because we are hosting your website).
Then, sign-up with 123-reg (for a new customer account) and register your domain name(s).
It's fast, simple and easy!
Domain and Email Hosting
Once again, enter your domain name precisely (after 'www.) and click ‘GO’.
Click 'add to basket'.
Click 'continue' (top right).
Please select ‘Add email accounts’ – if you wish to add email accounts on the back of your domain name e.g. email@example.com.
Remember to add a separate email account address for each name that you require. For example, sales@ and contact@ are 2 different email address accounts.
Please note that the email service is supported by 123-reg and not QuickontheNet.com (we provide free help and support with your website hosting).
Finally, sign-up with 123-reg (for a new customer account) and register your domain name(s) and email account(s).
It is important that you keep your 123-reg username and password handy, because you/we need to set up your domain when the registration is completed.
6. Holiday Information Links
Since you already know a lot of information about your holiday home destination and its surrounding area, we recommend that you share your knowledge and expertise with your prospective customers. At Quick on the Net, we provide the tools so that you can create your own website links to local attractions and information services:
Local Weather Forecasts
