When I first started developing web pages I had to use notepad and enter HMTL (Hyper Text Markup Language) by hand. I had to know the syntax of the language which wasn't easy. All that has changed now and it is easier than ever to build web pages. In fact, it is so easy that I don't even have to know any HTML at all. I can build web pages right in my browser using Drag and Drop objects that allow me to chose graphics and colors using my mouse. There are many sites on the web that allow you to build web pages for free however, they usually want to put their ads on your web pages.
They hope people will click on the advertisements so they can make money. This would actually lead people away from your web pages which, needless to say, is exactly what you don't want to have happen. I have found that Personal Site Server from Renasoft is by far the most advanced web page designer on the Internet. They even have free version of it's Personal Site Server, which includes an advanced Web Server, InstaFlash Web Designer and their own FlameOn technology for creating web pages using Drag and Drop components.
Now I can create professional looking web pages and web sites and I host them on my own computer using DSL or Cable so I pay no hosting costs and the only ads on my pages are my own. Personal Site Server utilizes the latest technologies to enable anyone to create fantastic web pages from beginning to end without having to use templates. Using InstaFlash web designer I can begin to experience real web page design without having to know any HTML. It implements a full drag and drop framework that allows me to place and size objects anywhere on the page. InstaFlash works within the web browser so I can literally be anywhere in the world and still be able to work on my web site.
I can create web based presentations and training using timed events for auto pagenext and built-in fade-in, fade-out effects for objects. I am really impressed with how easy it is to do. I have actually built a few web presentations using the product and discovered that, it really adds to the attraction of my web pages and keeps the visitors attention longer. I can also save my web pages so they be hosted else where on the Internet, if I chose. The free version also allows me to add members to my sites and give them the permission to create their own web pages and even collaborate on building web pages with anyone else on the Internet.
Because the designer is browser based there is nothing for the members to install. The drag and drop framework is easy to understand and permits anyone with very little skill to create new components that they can give away or market themselves, which I have done. The NetJetServer application (part of Personal Site Server) is an advanced web server that gives users the ability to run as many web sites as their computer and Internet connection is capable of. Many homes and businesses have wasted high speed connections that are only being used for browsing that can now be effectively utilized by hosting their own web site(s). It only takes a few minutes to install after downloading it and it has built in help facilities that explain many of the features of the product. InstaFlash Designer can also be used to create flyers, handouts, letters to family and friends, business brochures, advertisements and marketing materials, banners, school papers, presentations and training materials, slide shows, prototypes of applications, scrap booking pages and designs, photograph collections and albums, awards and certificates, calendars and reminders etc.
