This is the first official blog page, with some updates and revisions, that is meant to serve as an introduction to PageSection; explaining why, what and how our products and services aim at providing value. Also kindly visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page for more commonly asked questions that you might be interested in.

First off, thank you for choosing to visit (and hopefully use) this website and any of its products or services. PageSection has been in our control and operation since February 2020, and was originally a website for storing user-created-collections until the year 2021 when we started providing a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings targeting specific needs of web developers and other web users. We plan to create more applications that can provide specific functions and value for our users. Our plan of action; develop a single web-application which if successful will provide capital, users and momentum to develop other web-applications. The initial SaaS application (post 2021, can refer to as PageSection::Host or the upload service) is a simple way to host and link web projects (for example html, css, js, and many more) and receive a web link without the need of setting up or configuring a web server or domains.


Because web developers commonly deal with multiple projects, sometimes simultaneously, and there is a need to show or share the project’s progress with others. Be it clients, superiors or fellow programmers, there is a constant need to see what has been created in action. The use of localhost is limited to a single local machine which may need extra networking setups to share it with other clients. So how can projects be shared or presented in more convenient ways to clients? The internet is how most people expect to view web projects and content and is therefore a better option than localhost.


By web project, we refer to any form of work presented on the internet, for example a website, app, design, image, multimedia, computer program, et cetera. Websites and webpages are commonly composed of HTML documents referencing (or combined with) other file types including css (cascading style sheet), js (javascript), images, font files, and much more.
So let us consider that you are working on a web project, and you would like to show it off to someone else;

  1. Most programmers will either send screenshots or some other type of “mock-up” data to represent the project and or progress to other involved parties. This works and is very common, but it is not ideal as something’s are better viewed in action, for example interactivity. It may also make it difficult to identify certain errors when using mock-ups, for example mobile responsiveness.
  2. Others may record video, or even live stream it to the client, so as to show the project in action. This may solve a few issues like represent interactivity.
  3. Another (much better) solution is to simply host the web project on an already available server that can be accessed by both the programmer and the other viewer(s). This involves setting up a sub-domain for the project(s) or creating a special folder within an existing domain. As you may imagine, this easily gets complicated sometimes as it may even damage other existing projects on the server for instance when .htaccess rewriting has to also be updated so as to allow access to a new URL. It is also tiresome and repetitive to manually change files and settings on a server.

So this is clearly a problematic task, how do we allow people create, host and link to multiple web projects (or files) without dealing with multiple web-hosting packages, server reconfiguring and other complexities.


A few important problems, and common questions, that we aim at solving include;

  • How to deliver sites and project files to clients
  • How to show (preview) live website to clients
  • How to present a website to a client without domain names
  • How to present a website to a client without hosting
  • How to send an HTML page to a client
  • How to host websites for students
  • How to host websites for a class project
  • How to host temporary web projects


PageSection aims at providing a variety of web apps and services for web creators. Our solutions will target specific use-cases and help solve some of the common problems faced by many web developers and content creators.
As a platform for (HTML) website/webpage content: Zip the project, upload the (project) zip file and get a working web (URL) link. Share the link and let others view it naturally, by accessing the internet and clicking the link viewed within a web browser.
As a platform for other (supported) web files: Upload the file and get a link to it. For example css, js, png, jpg, svg, and other file types that you need to link for your web project.
We may charge a subscription fee so as to account for various costs of quality maintenance, improvement and compensation. Later on, we might create more web-applications to solve other problems which we believe can have simplified solutions. Hopefully, you find our solutions valuable to your workflow. Also for any custom requests or questions, do not hesitate to contant us via our support email.
