Features Go top

  • Simple to use: SiteStudio guides the user step-by-step, providing simple choices regarding color, style and images. There is no software to buy, and no code to learn. In addition, there is no need to mess around with programs such as FTP or Telnet.
  • Content and Design Separation: The content of the website is stored separately from the layout. This way, your customer can completely change the look and feel of their website in six clicks of the mouse, without ever having to retype any information.
  • Complete control over color schemes: SiteStudio includes a number of built-in color combinations that look great with any layout. But if a user wants to add a little originality to their site, all the colors can be changed, either by using a point-and-click color picker, or, for even more control, typing in the color as a hex number.
  • Layout templates: the layout of the site is controlled by layout templates. These are created in HTML enhanced by a few additional tags for generating images. SiteStudio comes with 80 layout templates in total, where Personal category shares 21 layouts and Small Business category - 69 layouts. More layouts are added with every new version of SiteStudio. You may want to create additional layouts on your own or request them from us.
  • On-the-fly image generation: SiteStudio dynamically generates the images it needs for each web site design, so each time a user decides to change the color combination for a page, the layout, or just a button caption, the necessary image is automatically created. Your customers need not ever bother with complex and expensive programs such as Photoshop to create web sites with clean and professional-looking graphics: our designers have already done it for them!
  • User-uploaded images: Thanks to the Image Uploader, your customers will be able to transfer images to their online account without ever having to leave their browsers. These images can be incorporated into page content or even page design. Let your customers create an online photo album, or insert a personal picture to make it a seamless part of the page logo.
  • Variety of pages: SiteStudio can be used to make many different pages. Let your users create an online resume, or build a personal photo album. Everything is done in a simple step-by-step process that is easy to learn and to follow. And because pages are template driven, you can add your own custom page types, or request pages with specific functionality from us.
  • One-click publishing: The user's website is published with one easy click. But even after publishing, they can go back and change it as much as they wish. Clicking the publish button again will instantly make all the changes made be reflected on the "live" version of the site.
  • Persistence: All the user's information is saved the moment it is entered. If user decides to log out, they can come back and continue building their web site from the very point where they left off.
  • Flexible setup: SiteStudio is easy to configure for operation with your existing software. It can easily be set up to utilize user information from your current user base. Site studio is easily integrated with web hosting applications such as H-Sphere (see H-Sphere on our Products Page for more info). We will install SiteStudio and integrate it with your existing user systems, at the installation fee of $75.
  • Complete control over the website: With the use of Site Studio's provided settings, your customers can make unique and attractive web sites. For the advanced user, SiteStudio provides a way to change buttons on the site.
  • Advanced full screen text/HTML Rich Editor: browser-based text editor for Internet Exlorer for Windows users only. It empowers SiteStudio users to work with formatting, styles, tables, bullets and more. Rich Editor allows to copy and paste the most complex tables from a web browser or from any Office applications.
  • Integration with on-line shops: Users can create their own fully integrated usable on-line shopping Add-A-Cart system that has everything you need to operate a successful on-line business: a shopping cart, secure payment gateway and a merchant account issued by One Stop Merchant Services. For personal websites users can create Amazon.Com Web Store.
  • SiteStudio Admin Panel: Stand-alone SiteStudio comes with its own admin control panel that allows creating, deleting and managing your customers.
