Simplesite is an easy way to build a website. This makes website building clear and simple to people that are new to building websites. The set up is quick and easy, and it doesn’t require any personal information except an email to set up.
Create a Website in Three Easy Steps
Simplesite takes just three easy steps to building a website. The first thing you do is choose a color theme (each theme is preset with four different colors, which you can’t change). Then you choose a headline for your frontpage, along with a photo from four different choices, or upload one of your own. Lastly, you choose a username, which is also your domain name.
There is not a lot of variety when choosing a design. There are a few options and differences in initial design choices. However, it does let you choose from a lot of different categories for your background.
Designing Your Website
Simplesite allows you to upload your own pictures, but this can be annoying because unlike other website builders, Simplesite will redirect you to a new page every time you choose to add a new image. Simplesite offers a few fun options to choose from when creating a new page on your website, such as games, diaries and recipes. Adding pages is very easy but placement of pictures and links and other sections on a page seem limited to the template you choose.
Subscription and Free Trial Features
Simplesite offers a free one month trial, which comes with a good number of pages and photos for a trial, but unfortunately offers very little video time. A one month trial allows:
- 40 pages total
- 300 images total
- 600 video seconds (10 minutes total).
Purchasing a subscription costs $20.00 for three months, and it gives you 20 extra pages, 200 extra images, and 1200 extra video seconds. After the first three months, a subscription renewal of $4 every three months is required to avoid website closure. A gift certificate system is also available for friends and families.
Support System Available to Help
Simplesite offers a support system in which it has an FAQ section for general pictures. Although a con is that its Headquarters are located in Denmark so it might be difficult to get an immediate answer if you live in the US. There is no phone number to call, only email or fax.
