Set your content free...
Freedom Engines are mobile first, 'social media' experience platforms that give you full ownership of your content.
Born out of the simple concept that your content belongs to you, and you alone, Freedom Engines have been designed to answer the simple question –
"Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, etc. Who owns your content and if you leave these platforms, what next?"
Powered by standalone WordPress installations and hosted on fast, dedicated, Litespeed enabled servers, your followers can view your Freedom Engine on any device that has a web browser.
No special app.
No account signup.
What's more, there is no 'theirplatform.com/myaccount' – your Freedom Engine has its own custom URL.
Register your unique URL - thisismywebsite.com, or use one you already own and point it to your Freedom Engine. It's easy and we'll show you how.
And just like your content, your URL belongs to you.
Your content IS King!
Posts are that easy to read. Images that look great. Freedom Engines are optimised for mobile display, presenting both images and text equally, so they are easy to digest on any platform.
If you are a writer, long text driven posts are not an issue. And if you deal only with imagery? No problem - your images are auto sized, optimised and posted so they always look great.
But if you do both? Easy! Mix any amount of words and text, in any combination you like, and your Freedom Engine will do the rest.
...and content security?
Having worked in content creation for many years, we understand the frustration of knowing how easy it is on some platforms for people to steal your work.
That's way we have built in security measures that make it extremely difficult for all but the most determined thief (and most content thieves are lazy hacks) to pinch your content... And we are always working to make those measures even better.
Post from anywhere:
Our unique engine allows you to post from anywhere you have access to email - desktop, tablet or phone; at your desk or on the beach!
All you have to do is send an email from a nominated account to your Freedom Engine and it will do the rest for you.
Prefer to go in to the admin and post manually?
Based on year's of experience teaching clients how to use WordPress, have stripped back the interface, leaving just the elements you need and no more.
Better still, the simple in-site help dashboard provides you with all the tips you need... as well as a direct link to our support - no need to look things up, no fumbling around if you need to get in contact.
Completely hands free!
Freedom Engines have been specifically designed for people that want to concentrate on their content, not worry about keeping a website running.
And hands free means exactly that. You do not have to worry about settings, themes, designs, updates, or anything else to do with running the site. Everything is done for you, seamlessly... just like an Instagram account!
Every base covered
Turbo charged features built in...
Your visitors can like your posts, make comments (and like comments), add your site to their phone's home screen (just like an app), and receive browser notifications when you add new content.
Freedom Engines may be website driven, but they look and behave more like your very own social media account.
Want to automatically share to social media accounts?
Freedom Engine was conceived not to replace 'traditional' social media channels, but to be your content masthead. So we have you covered when it comes to integration.
Automatically push and share posts to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, through the built-in Buffer interface, which allows you to post right away, or to a specified schedule.
Power in data
On a serious push and want a complete overview of your site's traffic?
Every Freedom Engine has access to a full suite of analytical data, via our privacy based Matomo analytics.
And finally... Speed
So how fast is a Freedom Engine?
From site structure, the elements that make it, right through to the servers it sits on, we have optimised it to be fast.
Freedom Engines are fast and we are always working on ways to make them faster.

Have Questions? We Have Answers.
Anything and everything you place of your Freedom Engine website belongs to you.
This is a prickly one! What you can't post may be simpler to explain...
You can not use your Freedom Engine account to post:
- Pornographic material, overt or passive. This does not include artwork (illustrated or photography) that contains nudity, or is artistically sexual in nature.
- Hate speech
- Extremist political views.
- Information of any type that may lead to the construction of harmful, or destructive, materials/mechanisms.
Freedom Engine is hosted with an ISO 27001 data farm that happens to be Australia's only tier 4 accredited data centre. This ensures the highest level of data security and protection. Also, being hosted in Australia, your account is protected by some of the strongest privacy laws in the world.
If you decide to cancel your Freedom Engine account, if required (in the instances where you do not have copies), all your images will be provided for you to download. All your posts will also be provided as a WordPress xml file, which you can then use to import into any WordPress based site. Once your account data is handed back to you, your account is 'destroyed'.
Not as such. While you own ALL the content you place on it, the website framework remains the property of Freedom Engine, meaning you can not copy, or host it on another server.
No, we do not offer Freedom Engine sites as stand alone packages you can buy.
Absolutely not! We maintain all Freedom Engine accounts so you never have to worry about a single thing.
We have carefully hand picked and cross tested every element used to build the Freedom Engine platform, both for performance and compatibility. For the sake of ongoing performance, maintenance and security, we do not allow the installation of any additional plugins outside of those we install.
None. Our monthly cost is all you pay. We are looking at providing an optional e-commerce extension for Freedom Engine websites, for those that may want to sell artwork etc., but this will come at an additional cost for those that want it.
Not at all. If you prefer, you can add new posts directly within your Freedom Engine site. Full details are provided.
Freedom Engine websites are designed to be minimal, and in many ways intentionally mimic the typical social media account experience for a visitor. As such, the only editable page available to you is the 'About' page, though the content and length of which is totally up to you.
You can post as much, or as little, content in a post as you like. The only condition is that every post starts with an image but from there, you can go wild!
Yes... and no. Via email posting, you can add a link (such as the link YouTudbe provides) to a video, but not send an email post that will show the video directly. If you want to embed a video directly into a post, then you will need to create the post from within your Freedom Engine account. Here are some instructions...it's really simple!
Apart from picking the (current) 'Light' or 'Dark' themes, no. As The Freedom Engine has been designed to provide the best and most 'neutral' experience possible for all users, customising individual sites is not a possibility.
Some power users may want to automatically share what they are posting on their Freedom Engine to their social media account/s, meaning when they make a new post it is shared to one or all of their SM accounts automatically.
We have looked at the various options for this sort of integration, both as a function within Freedom Engine and externally. After going through all the available options, we saw that Buffer (https://buffer.com) as the best gateway for publishing directly to social media channels from your Freedom Engine account. Note: Posting to Instagram from outside Instagram has been notoriously temperamental due to Instagram's changing policies. Currently Buffer is the best way to do this, though you will require an Instagram 'Business' account).
Your Freedom Engine accounts comes preinstalled with an official Buffer approved plugin allowing you to integrate your Engine with Buffer. You will need to setup a Buffer account in order to use this feature, and for full control, we advise that if you intend to push out to Buffer, you post from within your Freedom Engine site, which will give you complete control over what you post on your SM channels.
