What is a Website Builder?

A website builder is a special kind of content management system (CMS). While traditional CMS were built to administer large websites, online website builders are designed with smaller website projects in mind. This means that the is not required to have any special coding or programming skills, or any other technical knowledge like installing a CMS, designing a template, or creating a database.

Modern website builders maintain strict separation between content and design, which is a key CMS principle. Here are some of the advantages of using such website builders:

  • Websites designed this way can easily be indexed by search engines like Google
  • It’s easy to change the website’s design and templates
  • Content does not have to be changed/modified in the process

Website builders are ideal for individuals, freelancers, creative professionals, small businesses, and startups that require a website or online store.

iPage OS Compatibility

iPage is compatible with all operating systems (OS), including Windows and Mac OSX. However, website builders are a web application, and not an OS. A website builder, like all other applications, must be compatible with your OS in order for it to work. Some specifications and requirements are the following:

Windows

  • A Windows OS 2000 or newer version
  • A minimum 800×600 screen resolution
  • Your preferred web browser in its latest version

Mac OSX

  • An OSX that is 10.4 or higher
  • Your preferred web browser in its latest version

Blogging and CMS options like WordPress and Joomla can easily be installed via the Mojo Marketplace; while the Weebly drag-and-drop site builder makes it easy for you to create and customize a professional-looking website in just minutes.

    I’ve been using WordPress for years but I like the idea of a simple, clean and code efficient system like Weebly. I’m trying to find out if there is a desktop version of the software so I can build sites off-line – can you help?
