For web designers looking for a great option to combine a clean web interface with multiple features and the creative freedom of html coding, Webs.com may be a good solution. Packed with features for the beginning to advanced web designer, the professional-looking interface is one of the best features of this online web design solution.
In addition to the easy interface, which creates template-based pages for businesses which look like an expert designed them, it also offers high-quality high-definition audio and video which you can upload through their file uploader. The server automatically converts the video to optimal format to use in the page. All video is created in high-definition, provided it was recorded in that format, and then rendered to a “Flash media” file. Flash is known for its low space requirements, while maintaining quality. This allows you to upload a high-definition file, while allowing for faster download speeds.
The price is reasonable too, starting at only $3.75 per month for the basic account. The pro version costs $24.95 per month but includes unlimited shopping cart items, and a higher space capacity for storage.
I use the pro version, since I have a fully-functional media sales and technology business, and we need to have no limits on the amount of items and services we sell. It also allows us to use the highest quality video and audio codecs in creating content, and then allows the Webs.com server to compress it to their standards, once uploaded. This allows customers to see it in the highest quality, while not having to wait forever for downloads.
There are many other tools on the internet, including other web hosting solutions which are great, but I prefer Webs.com due to the versatility in design, the ease of use, and ability to add html code and other applications to the page with ease.
There are 3 levels of web hosting packages: standard, enhanced, and pro versions and they vary in price from $3.75 to $24.95 per month. The package chosen should be determined by the amount of space that will be needed, considering what the purpose of the site is, the amount of bandwidth and data that is critical to the site, and the level of ecommerce solution that is required by the client. Whichever you choose, you will find something that will work nicely for any business or individual website.
This is definitely a tool you will want to check out if you are a web designer, or for businesses who wish to find a moderate cost solution for their web design needs.
