How many users can access IgniteCRM at the same time?
The Internet is your website that is available for other people to view by typing in your domain name (like http://www.faithhighway.com), and it displays your information and graphics to the masses.
An Intranet is your web-based environment where it is only accessible by people who you give access. Think of it as a website just for your staff and leadership. Unless you give someone access to that site, they cannot see it or its content. We provide you with the secure member login to ensure that your information that is only for those you allow is safe and secure.
