Launched in 2005, Steve and Dianne Sivulka came up with the idea for a family website builder while on vacation in Europe with their children. Dianne wanted to keep friends and family up to date with what they were doing in Italy, and kept asking Steve to update their family website nightly. After a few updates, they both realized the process was too complicated and taking far too much time. An idea sprung to life. They needed a faster, easier way to use the web to stay connected with their inner circle. Steve and Dianne realized other families must experience the same problems trying to share updates on vacations, weddings, reunions or other important events - especially if they didn't have technical backgrounds or a lot of time on their hands.
Steve, with his extensive programming and technology background, started developing a turnkey website service that would enable individuals to easily create and update their sites on their own. As far as computers went, Dianne knew Microsoft Word, how to e-mail and how to buy things (thanks Amazon). So she was the perfect person to provide input on what would make a website attractive and easy to use. Additionally, she had the valuable perspective of a busy mom who has to make every minute count, between home schooling the kids, shuttling them to activities, and running a household.
The Sivulkas knew that although moms work hard to keep families connected, they have very little time on their hands. For moms, creating and maintaining a family website had to be a quick and easy process. Steve built a sample website for Dianne to try. She absolutely loved it and immediately started showing her friends how the new site worked. Once they saw it, they all wanted their own sites and Easysite was born. Now with over 100,000 sites built, Easysite is quickly becoming a leading provider of turnkey family websites.
