How to Set Up a Website – 4 Helpful Tools
Presently, it is common knowledge that the old way of making websites – designing, then converting to HTML code – doesn’t have to be the only way. As a matter of fact, one can give up coding altogether, and work with a web tool to conjure splendid-looking sites without going through hell to achieve this goal. Seeing as the market is overpopulated with all kinds of site building services, I wanted to make a short list with the ones that I would recommend the most.
IM Creator ranks high in my preferences. If I had to describe this tool in a few words, I’d be sure to stress how surprisingly easy and enjoyable it is to create a website through this medium. Building a site with IM Creator is a three-phased process that goes smoothly:
choose a theme, modify it & add content, and finally publish. The one thing that sets IM Creator apart from most similar tools is its stellar collection of templates. These are already-made designs that comply with an uncommonly high aesthetic standard. In fact, the layouts for mobile sites are drop-dead-gorgeous. Another cool advantage is hosting for free on reliable Amazon servers.
Posthaven is quite unique. This is the blogging service that invented email-to-post, or the ridiculously simple way of posting updates straight from your email box, complete with attachments of all sorts: documents, videos, images, music, or any other file types. But this is not the main reason why I hold this site builder in high regard. As a matter of fact, Posthaven extends a promise of durability that you can count on. It makes your site safe and invincible, asking for just $5-a-month in return, in order to keep its promise.
BlogSpot is the brainchild of Google, and quite possibly the optimum choice if you’re interested in an effective way to set up a blog. From the very beginning, the user interface will strike you as very friendly and easy to grasp. In some ways, it is similar to IM Creator, because a great diversity of lovely-looking templates awaits your personal touch. These are easily customizable, and besides, once you activate your site, it’s possible to get it hosted there for free.
Meet Jux, the most visual platform on the market. If you’re intent on creating a blog, portfolio, or an event website, this service is bound to send your message across – because it’s built for maximum exposure. A special ‘edge-to-edge’ philosophy drives this tool – in other words, it makes no difference if you’re posting articles, videos, or pictures, because they will all take up the whole screen and make quite an impression on your visitors (including when they’re viewed on ipods and ipads).
