HelloBox Features
Everything you need for your community & nothing you don't.

Features are important to you, and to us.
Before we get to the list of features, we want you to know that this list is not the complete list. We are adding new features each day, so the best way to catch up on the latest development is via our own HelloBox.
If you are looking for something that we don't have yet, then let us know and we'll add it to our list.
Last but not least, the best way to get a taste of HelloBox is to actually sign up and try one yourself.

When you create a community on HelloBox, we automatically give you an accessible address based on HelloBox's sub-domain - e.g. http://awesome.hellobox.co. But you can make your community even more personal if you have your own domain name. You can set it up any way you want. It could be a top-level, second-level and your own sub-domain. We will guide you through the steps.

There is nothing like being in the driver's seat when managing your community. HelloBox gives you absolutely everything you need to manage every aspect of your community. Members, access, contents, tags, comments, themes, the list goes on and one. And we're building new features every day, so if you ever need something specific, let us know and we'll surely put it on our list.
Get the insights into what is happening
In addition to managing everything, HelloBox provides a detailed report on how your communities are doing via dashboard, charts and reports. If that's not enough, integrate with Google Analytics and Google Webmaster to get even more information on how your community is performing. Knowledge is power and with it, you can adapt and continue to grow your community.
Design your community the way you want
At HelloBox, we know how important is to make your community site as attractive as possible, at the same time functional. That's why we provide themes, design options to change fonts, colors, images, upload logos and favicons. That's not all! We also give you option to change the styles directly, so you can make sure your community reflects what it represents.
