Create websites with a website builder
Are you thinking about designing a homepage with a typical website builder?
This may seem like a good idea considering the number of low-priced systems that are available. If you do decide to go this route, you'll be offered a range of templates for your design. The template is then filled with content directly in the browser. These building blocks can also be edited and administered easily in the browser regardless of the device being used. You don't need to install any software and can get started right away. This is a great way to go for anyone who wants to quickly and easily get their content online.
But those with higher expectations and want a more personalized design will quickly become aware of the limitations with these kinds of systems. When creating the layout, you have to settle for only the included building blocks and can't add your own design elements which can make things generic and lose the focus of your site's visitors. It's also often the case that the number of webpages you can have on your site is limited too. With this type of website builder your homepage design is extremely limited.
If you're interested in taking things to the next level, Xara Web Designer is the web design software that is perfect for you and offers even more options. This program has to be installed on your PC, but offers much more than typical browser-based website builders. It automatically creates backup copies of your files and can upload your finished website with just a few clicks. You don't need to learn any programming languages and can move the elements around on your web pages with simple drag & drop. This type of functionality is referred to as WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get).
Thanks to the vector graphic engine you can create infinitely scalable graphics with this program. It also includes all the basic photo editing functions. You can even make use of the MX functionality and edit your images in Xara Photo & Graphic Designer which can then be imported directly to your website. If you want to create flyers and posters to match your website, you can also use Xara Page & Layout Designer to create a consistent look and build your brand.
For anyone who doesn't have their own design ideas, there is also a great selection of website templates to get things started. Unlike the templates in most website builder systems these web design templates can be customized down to the finest detail.
