You want to build a website but don’t know how to go about doing it? If you find yourself in that situation where you just can’t handle the codes when building a website in Dreamweaver or Frontpage, this could be a solution for you. Wix.com is a free website builder that offers free flash template. The way Wix.com works is close to what you can see on iWeb. But for those who do not have access to iWeb, this could be a great tool.

Websites are built via drag and drop and builders do not need to see a single line of code at all. This is a great feature and one that iWeb users know so well. Wix also provides tons of templates ranging from personal websites to business though you have the option to start from scratch too. Not only that, you are also able to upload your own files such as your photos and videos to personalize your website. Another feature worth mentioning is the fact that websites created on Wix.com are search engine friendly.

Go on give Wix.com a try.

Website designing can take a lot longer to do than graphic designing. That’s because you spend the first part of it designing your graphics and then bringing them onto your website. While there, you begin to place the images according to the layout you’ve planned before hand. While the whole process of placing your images can take time, it’s nothing compared to the amount of coding you need to have a look whenever the website doesn’t look like what you imagined it to be during preview. It’s even more annoying if you are unsure of the problem so you’d end up spending countless minutes if not hours trying to find out the solution. Not to mention if the graphics you created doesn’t fit into the space you allocated.

In short, website designing can be a pain but I enjoy it – especially when the product satisfies your customer.
