Creating a web site is not an easy task. Especially if one is not completely savvy on HTML, CSS and dozens of other types of scripting and programming involved in the process of creating a good web site. This is where finding and using a good web site builder program comes into play. While there are literally thousands of both free and commercial programs available on the Internet, the following three are top notch and are easy to use.
Ewisoft Website Builder
The Ewisoft web site building program is designed for both novice and experienced web site designers. It is built on a template and drag-and-drop premise which makes creating pages a breeze. The advantage of using a template based web design it to separate it from the actual content of the web page. This way content can be edited on the fly without affecting the overall design of the web site.
Ewisoft is compatible with all web hosting providers and resides on the desktop. Once a web site design is complete, users simply export the result to their respective online web sites.
Not only does Ewisoft offer a standard web site builder program but the company also has an e-commerce builder available for those needing to create a shopping cart and a template maker for those experienced web designers. Both the web site builder and the e-commerce builder programs are available as a free trial and cost $39.99 and $79.99 respectively to purchase outright.
EZGenerator Website Builder
The EZGenerator web site builder uses WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) and has been created for the non-technical user. There is no HTML knowledge required and the program makes it simple to create and maintain a web site. The interesting aspect of this web site building program is allows users to edit existing digital images and incorporate them into the web site being built. The program automatically scales images and ensures they are in a proper web format.
Creating new web site is a four step process, according to the product’s web site. Users pick their desired template, choose the style of site (business, personal, musicians, etc.), customize the pages as desired, and finally name and describe the web site. After these four simple steps, users can then upload their newly created site online.
The EZGenerator program is available to try out initially and then, if satisfied, users pay a one-time charge of $129.
Intuit Website Builder
Going a slightly different route, the Intuit web site builder allows users to create new web sites online rather than from their desktops. This service is exceedingly simple to use and has the advantage of not having to worry about creating a web site and then uploading it to a web hosting provider. Intuit places the web site online automatically and even allows users to register a domain name for the web site.
Intuit users choose from over 2,000 professionally designed templates and then customize them to their particular tastes. Adding a logo, graphics and text are a simple process and, within minutes, users can have a fully functional web site that can be tried out for free for 30 days.
After the initial free 30 day trial, the cost of an Intuit built web site runs at $4.99 a month. While this is an ongoing fee, keep in mind that not only are design services being offered but hosting as well.
All three reviewed web site builders are fantastic products. The best part about each one is the simplicity of use. The best web site building programs are those that cater to both the seasoned professional and the inexperienced novice. Something that all three of these products do with flying colors.
