out of a passion for technology shared by two brothers, Federico and Stefano Ranfagni, and their belief that technology should always exist to serve people. The next phase started in 2000, when a friend asked, “I’m not a programmer but I want to launch a website. Can you help me?”. It may have seemed crazy, but during a trip one hot summer day, the core idea for what would become WebSite X5 was born. This software, as intuitive as it is comprehensive, would allow anyone, even the inexperienced friend, to create their own website in just 5 steps. Today, WebSite X5 is sold all around the world, and we are still excited to keep developing it and to seek new software and solutions. 1998: google-q8 is founded 1999: The google-q8 Professional software is born 2000: The Website 1.0 software is born 2002: The Click Album software is launched 2003: The SWiSH Max software is launched 2005: The first version of the WebSite X5 software is born 2006: WebSite X5 is sold in over 40 countries around the world 2010: WebSite X5 is named “Best software of the Year” at the Retail Vision fair in London 2011: The WebSite X5 Community is born: fans and customers from every corner of the world with a passion for WebSite X5 2013: WebSite X5 Professional is launched 2015: google-q8 wins the Confindustria “Parola d’Impresa” Prize 2018: The google-q8 brand gets a new design for its 20th anniversary!
