eteamz switched to servers so we would be able to offer you more storage for less money. So, what are you waiting for?


In My Account/PLUS folder, click on Full Details. If it says Storage Upgrade 20MB, click the Discontinue link next to it. The 20MB of extra storage will remain until the next renewal date, but you will not be charged again for it.


Then, go to back to My Account/PLUS folder and purchase 5GB of extra storage for only $19.95 a year! This is a lot of extra storage for a lot less money!

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and inspired by the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, eteamz is proud to introduce a new site template.


For the month of October, let your eteamz PLUS site serve as a reminder that annual screening and early detection are important in the fight against breast cancer - especially for women who are 40 and older.


Breast cancer touches the lives of so many; you can contribute by helping to raise awareness through your team’s website.

Changing your eteamz template will not result in any lost data and you can change your template back at any time. Any customizations added prior to changing the template would need to be manually reset.


To change your site template, go to the My Site Design Folder and click Customize. Choose your template and colors then click Save Changes.
