With the Hostaway software, you will also have access to your own direct booking website.
With this great tool, you can generate a website in minutes to promote your listings and have clients book directly with you. On this page, you can find an example rental booking website generated by Hostaway.
Creating your own booking website
The booking website will be created on the domain holidayfuture.com as a subdomain. The first step in creating a website for your account is to choose your subdomain name.
When you have selected the domain name, you can select the listings that you'd like to show on your new website.
Click on the listings so they turn green to make them active.
Then you can select if you would like to show your base price for the listing. This is the rate you have set in listing details. The rate is shown as standard and the adjusted day rate is shown in the calendar.
In addition, you can also choose your website title and subtitle. These show up on the front page of your website.
When you're done, you can now start to add content to the website.
You can upload a nice background image for the search box.
You can also add some content about who you are as a hosting/management company.
Also, you can add a disclaimer, address and social media contact information.
When you're done editing and filling in the information, you can save and publish the website. It will be immediately available on the domain name you have chosen.
Website advanced settings
Like with most websites, you might wish to add some advanced functions to the page.
When you have a Stripe account connected, you can collect credit card details with your website. Also, you can decide if your guests need to add the credit card details as a mandatory field or not. You can add different scripts to the page so you can load chat windows, page trackers and more.
When you are looking to use your own domain name, you might be able to mask your own domain "example.com" to the subdomain. Read more on the Godaddy website about this.

If this is option is selected, it will show your company logo at the left side of the header (instead of the title, when set), and at the footer.
