Use your favorite design tools to create stunning sites that your clients will love. Surreal gets out the way of your creative process so you can focus on what you enjoy the most.
Many of our customers use popular web design apps such as DreamWeaver and Expression Studio, but you can use just about anything you want. You can even hand-code your site from scratch if that’s your style.
You don’t even need to switch hosting companies to use Surreal. The CMS works with virtually any site that can be reached through FTP or SFTP. Your entire design process remains the same.
Surreal uses FTP or SFTP to connect to your site and make changes. Once your site is online, just add it to the CMS and enable the pages you want to edit. It’s as easy as pointing and clicking, and the entire process takes less than a minute.
Afterwards, you can add your clients and specify which pages they’re allowed to edit. You can even set privileges for each person so they only have access to the features you want them to.

to be able to edit. Only the content inside these regions will be accessible,
so you can ensure your designs won’t break when changes are made.
You can make anything from an entire
div to a single
editable. Surreal will provide an interface specifically designed for the
types of elements you select.
That’s it. Now your clients can safely edit their own sites and you can sit back and enjoy some extra free time. We handle all updates and bug fixes so you never have to worry about staying up-to-date.
