    Gang - after testing numerous options I am currently using Snappages. Their support is excellent. It has potential and the developers seem to listen well to users. I still think iWeb is actually the best option out there (for folks like myself- not professional web designers). It's ease of use is not replicated anywhere else.

     

    In my search I was shocked at how much bad software/website builders are out there!

     

    I have high hopes that Apple will one day get back in the game!

     

    Good luck all-

    Thanks for the heads up, Deyano.... another option. But I don't get that site..... I'm missing something! Are they webhosts too, or is it just the design software? I watched the "tour" but it didn't mention anything about getting your site to a host....

     

    If it's just the design software, it's a bit pricey, and I really am not comfortable with "renting" software, especially at $8 per month (or $30 for "developer"). Seems to be a bit of a trend!!

    No.  This includes the publishing of the site too and you need to watch out for things like this as they can make it a little more expensive, but yes, it should include hosting.

  • Deyano Level 1 (35 points)

    Yes Salty- includes hosting. I have been very impressed by their support- over weekends and IM. It takes a little while to get used to but IMO is the easiest of the online website builders to use and has some pretty cool features..

  • salty777 Level 3 (540 points)

    Deyano... it certainly looks better than the free site builders on iPage (the host I'm now using). If those figures include decent hosting then maybe it's not a bad deal.

    Hey Deyano,

     

    For what it's worth, did you ever check out Virb.com? From an aesthetic perspective, their templates look pretty nice. I've known a few people who have used it and liked it, but I don't personally have much experience with it. $10/month I think...

    The only drag and drop software around that is competitive with iWeb pricewise is this one...

    Good hosting with all the facilities you would need is available for about a dollar a week...

    If you are happy with iWeb, there's no reason why you shouldn't keep using it until a suitable replacement appears on the market. See this page for info about using iWeb with the latest version of OS X...
