Summary

Summary

Sitey has shown itself to be a real surprise in the world of website design and hosting, challenging (as you can see by our top 5 ratings) the likes of Wix and Weebly, both being well established online companies. The user is spoilt for choice with templates from the get-go, which can be personalized on one of the best editors we’ve seen to date! Sitey.com is extremely competitively priced which leads us to believe that Sitey is one of the best ways to start or expand your online footprint by creating a website to rival the best in the business.

Value For Money

Value For Money

From a features vs. price viewpoint, Sitey.com appears to be one of the best value for money website builders available. Starting at $6.95 a month for the starter package, which is rammed with very much impressive features has appeared to us to be the best on the market in terms of ‘bang for your buck’. A free account option is available to users at first but this comes with a Sitey domain and advertising in the footer. The pro account is available for a couple extra dollars a month which in our opinion is worth it if you wish to take your website to the next level, offering more space and bandwidth.

Editor

Editor

You can count on Sitey's website editor for a very simple experience, but also one which offers many different helpful features. Surrounding the editing space is a tool bar and side bar both offering navigation, tools and helpful information, giving you ideas on how to make the site as aesthetically pleasing as possible. However, this still manages to not intrude the clean workspace. It is clear to the user that a lot of work has been put into the editor by those at Sitey, it is very impressive and also a nice change to see the emphasis taken from endless features and instead put towards ease of use for the customer.

Templates

Templates

Each and every specialist template is designed with a business, person or movement in mind, feel free to have a look though the 10,000 editable templates here, it’s almost guaranteed that you will find one which you could use! All of the templates make it very easy to create a professional looking website for whatever cause you desire.

Additional Features

Additional Features

The Sitey website editor is filled with useful features, whilst also maintaining it’s extreme usability for a novice. The ability to save and publish the site straight from the editor is very refreshing and takes care of all of the extra work which publishing can cause when using other services online. Also, the ability to view from a mobile platform is extremely helpful as many mobile users will not revisit a site if it is not easy to navigate or is accessible. It is clear to me that even a beginner could produce fantastic results easily with this site, which is what pushed it higher in our rankings.

Guides & Customer Service

Guides & Customer Service

If you were to encounter any troubles whilst using the service I can safely say that you would be in good hands, built into the editor is an intelligent feature that recognizes when a user gets stuck, which then offers custom tips on how to overcome problems and move forward with the site.
