Good web design isn’t just a nice-looking design, but a nice-working design. Today, with almost each and every one of us using smartphones and tablets to browse the Internet, not having a touch-friendly website can result in losing customers and lower sales. So, if you’re in search of a reliable, feature-rich Do-It-Yourself platform to build a website, consider using online website developers offering included mobile optimization. They’re all very easy-to-use and let you see and adjust your website’s mobile look using a special Mobile editor. They have worked hard to provide non tech-savvy users with the latest technologies in an intuitive, ready-to-use product, and I gladly share my favorites in this brief blog post.
MotoCMS has proven itself as one of the best DIY solutions for building Flash and HTML websites. It was one of the first website builders to introduce Mobile Editing capabilities. You can configure the mobile look of your website simply by clicking ‘Switch to Mobile Editor’ button in your control panel. All the edits will be performed in the What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get mode. No coding required.
Pricing: You can try MotoCMS free of charge during a 30-day trial. To get a license, you have to pick and purchase one of their templates (they come with an inbuilt admin panel and a set of default widgets). This will cost you $139. Afterwards, you’ll be able to upload it to any server and publish your website in a single click. With MotoCMS you don’t have to buy monthly packages: you pay once to get a feature-laden template, 24/7 customer support and lifetime system updates. You’ll have to pay for the chosen hosting only.
#2 Zoho Sites
Zoho Sites is a well established, all-in-one website builder developed to meet the needs of small and medium-sized business owners, as I see it. Zoho Sites is literally packed with different business-specific apps: customizable CRM forms, Social Media solutions, easy integration with Google apps, Branding tools and even custom 404 Error pages. Each website built on this platform automatically gets a touch-friendly version.
Pricing: Zoho Sites offers a completely free plan (it never expires) and a paid, full-featured PRO package ($39/year; domain at extra $10).
IMCreator is the best choice for the novice, in my opinion. It’s very easy-to-use and has tons of polished, state-of-the-art templates. To build the mobile website of your dreams just pick one of the ready templates (there’s a separate section for Mobile themes) and start editing it right in your browser. No registration required. Everything works backwards there :). You build your website first, and only after some editing you may create an account – no obligations, no commitments and credit card data.
Pricing: IMCreator lets you use a free version of the platform as long as you need (your website will be published on their subdomain). To unlock more features and be able to add a custom domain you need to purchase a Premium plan ($5.95-$9.95).
