The Benefits

There are many reasons that web designers love to use Pulse. Above all, it fits their workflow and makes their job easier. Here are a few more.

Made for Blocs 2.2+

Quick to install and setup and no database to configure, Pulse is perfect for Blocs users. Quickly create sites using any project, with local previews, and hand off to clients.

Perfect for client work

Clients have an intuitive content editor, with drag and drop image support, or markdown to use. You can pre-add their content or leave it to them. Pulse is fully rebrandable too.

Security first

Built with security features in mind, rest assured from attacks and constant updating requests and sleep well knowing your site is safe. Fully SSL compatible too for extra peace of mind.

Lower starting cost

Start small, rapidly and inexpensively on Pulse. Test your ideas, create a landing page more quickly & publish faster. Kaizen baby. And all for a small cost per domain.

Be more profitable

Proven platform

Growing from strength to strength over the past 7 years and lots more to come, Pulse is no spring chicken. More Blocs + Pulse plugins on the way.

Intro to Pulse CMS

Making Pulse templates in Blocs





How does the license work? What can I do?

The Pulse license is a lifetime license which means it is a one time purchase that entitles you to free lifetime upgrades on one domain for any v4.x updates. Any subsequent major updates such as v5 will require a new license. You can transfer your license between domains, but it can only be used on one live public domain simultaneously.

How does the ✈️ UNLIMITED Edition work?

By choosing this yearly payment plan, you can use Pulse for any and every project you work on without any further costs, whilst also helping our cash flow so we can keep supporting your design and development business. If you ever cancel the plan, you can keep your sites running. This works out the best for freelancers making more than 5 sites per year.

What support is included?

Technical support is included with each purchase of Pulse. This includes support for installation, basic troubleshooting and questions. You can get in touch via email or ask on the forums. Customizations and modifications are not within the scope of support. For help with that, hire a Pulse Professional or try our official Pulse Crafted Service.

Is there a demo version?

Yes, you should be happy with Pulse first before you buy a license. Try Pulse with the online demo. See the frontend and try the backend admin. The demo will reset in 10 minutes. This is ample time to try it and fall in love with Pulse before buying it.
