SlideShowPro.com is a slideshow publishing service powered by SlideShowPro Director. It's completely browser-based, with nothing for you to install. We setup, backup and maintain your subscription automatically, and you can create however many slideshows you want. Subscriptions are offered in increments of 6, 12 or 24 months. You may try the service out with a free 14-day trial.
They're basically the same. That said, SlideShowPro.com does offer a few extra features, including a cross domain file generator (to control which domains are allowed to access content) and a domain mapping utility so you may use your own domain instead of a slideshowpro.com subdomain. More on the latter below.
No. SlideShowPro.com subscriptions include SlideShowPro Director, so you don't need to purchase the product separately.
No. All management of your installation is handled through your web browser.
As part of the sign-up process you choose your own subdomain, username and password. E.g, "yourname.slideshowpro.com".
No. It is not technically possible to export / import content from a hosting subscription to the self-install version.
Your account, and all content associated with it, will be deleted. This also means that any slideshows you have that are loading content from your hosted installation will fail to operate. The administrative contact will receive plenty of notices/warnings when the subscription is coming up for renewal. See Subscriptions for more information.
Absolutely. All uploaded content is backed up daily, so nothing is ever lost.
No. Each account has unlimited content upload capacity.
10mb is the max for each image, 100mb the max for each video.
No. We'll provide as much as you need.
No. Create as many as you want.
Whenever a new version of Director is released we will update your installation so you're always be up to date with the latest build.
We can cancel your account, but cannot refund any unused subscription time. All sales final.
In the event where we need to take the service offline for maintenance, or if there's a major issue affecting hosting in general, we will update our status page at http://status.slideshowpro.com. This page is hosted off-site, away from our servers, so it will always be accessible.
Yes. We offer a "Domain Mapping" account upgrade you may purchase after creating your hosting account that allows you to use a domain or sub-domain of your own.
