Website Guide

Welcome to your new Deluxe Website

This comprehensive guide explains how your new website connects to the CiiRUS software.

About the Website:

Your CiiRUS Website is built using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language and is the standard markup language for web pages.

HTML is used together with CSS and JavaScript for building websites. It provides the sites’ basic structure, which is later enhanced by CSS and JavaScript.

CSS helps visually style the basic structure classified by HTML and it controls how the content’s layout is formatted and presented to the users.

JavaScript is used to make the website interactive and it controls the behavior of different content elements in response to user action.

Since the site is built using HTML, it makes it easier to control all the functionality on the site since it is easy to access the code to make modifications and updates.

So how does the website communicate with CiiRUS?

Well… everything is seamlessly connected! CiiRUS is your central platform where you can add and update properties with all the booking settings, images, descriptions, etc... Once it is saved in CiiRUS, it will automatically populate on your website.

Likewise, if a booking is made through your CiiRUS website or any connected channels (VRBO, Airbnb,, ect), it will automatically update and block the calendar in real-time for all connected platforms.

We hope you enjoy reading through the Website Guide, to fully optimize your site and understand how it works with CiiRUS.
