EmmaG71 's review of SiteBuilder DIY,


“This online Website Builder is particularly aimed at...”

Written on: 02/01/2009 by EmmaG71 (1 review written)

Good Points
Really powerful site designer and page layout tools
Very easy to use - even for technophobes!
Good telephone support (standard rate number)
No software to download
E-shop facility
Free 28 day trial

Bad Points
It's a bit more expensive than some of the other website builders ( £29.95 per month) so if you're just looking to create a personal website it would be a pricey option, but for a business though its great value.

General Comments
This online Website Builder is particularly aimed at the needs of business. Its quick and easy to create a site - an initial 8 step process creates your basic site in about 10 minutes and then you can add and edit content or change the look of the site as much as you like.

There's tools provided are very comprehensive but are really simple to use (even for someone of limited technical ability like me!) and include a Site Designer which allows you to changes the colours of your site, add images / logo's / titles etc, create promo areas etc., a Page Editor for laying out the content of each page, and a Site Organiser for creating and amending the structure of your site.

The Page Editor is particularly impressive supporting a range of different content types including text (via an integrated 'Word' style editor), Images (including integrated image editing with effects, borders, etc.), New, Events, Discussion Forums, Downloadable documents, links etc. A drag & drop interface allows you to place these wherever you like on the page.

There's also an e-shop facility which allows you to sell products online. This looks very comprehensive but I haven't used it in any detail so can't comment fully.

I've tried some of the other website builders and overall I would say that this one is by far the best for my needs (creating a website to promote my business). It's a joy to use, very comprehensive and produces really professional looking results.
