Great tool for creating websites. You can even add in your own custom HTML. If you opt to build a free site is is not too bad either, they place ads on your site but they are very minimal and the result is quite a professional looking website.
I unfortunately stayed with them for 18 months and I just had to leave as soon as possible! I left for another website builder and they are much better.
USELESS CUSTOMER SERVICE: Customer agents are just incompetent. They are clueless, they just read their stupid already written answers and if your question does not match one of their answers, they just don't reply! The "technicians" are as good in IT as a monkey would be in flying a plane. They will not hesitate to lie to you, making you think that it's your PC that has a fault, not them.
USELESS WEBSITE: Their website builder thing is just awful. Nothing works fine basically! I found errors with almost every single of their widgets or apps. SOME OF THE KNOWN ISSUES, HAVE BEEN ISSUES FOR OVER 2 YEARS!!!! Can you believe this??? Some of the major issues, have been issues for over 2 years, most of them, for over 1 year! That means they don't give a damn if something does not work, they don't even try to fix it, because they know they are not able to in the first place!
I have a commercial website, I give lessons online over skype. So my customers can visit my website to get their daily lesson. I can't count the number of times I received complaints that the WEBSITE WAS DOWN! And of course, there are no refunds of discounts when this happens. It has happened so often, that I had to leave them before the end of the 12 months I already paid for.
To sum it up, DON'T BOTHER opening an account with them. Flee while you can, it's too late for me, but you can still save your life....and your website.
Hi i have been happy for webs.com's products in 1 year, after that i would like to upgrade my website. but after i have upgradet they gave the most bad service ever. i have lost $6000 USD, after there slow web service. when you contact the support, they are like you are a thief with a gun. they just turn off the chat, and then dont answer your emails. i worn you! - DO NOT USE WEBS.COM IF YOU WANT A WEBSITE HOST. they got to high prises for almost nothing. webs should be named: pay and get fucked and then get, and then die when we murder you for the money you have paid us.
- there do not life bad peppol on earth, there only life webs.com, the new name of hell
* before you think about this is a bad comment, think about how much you self have got for $6000 USD.
(this where written was i were much more angry then i am now... but what i try to tell is: webs are allmost down... they say it is ddos attacks, but i have tested their servers and found they just really bad... i will not say good for webs...)
I have seen wonderful websites made by webs.com users and i loved to see their designs.. I used my website quit often even as a free user.. however i am unable to log into my website i keep getting "Sorry, it seems like we have encountered a temporary glitch. Please refresh the page to try again." More like a permanent glitch.. It has been going on for the longest while maybe about 2 months with no good results and i have been busy so i just gave up and move onto something else.. and i am tired of seeing it that way when i log in.. not only that but before it was "glitched" i was unable to place in my own designs.. I am more limited than wix.com.. I have to stick with the same font, same design.. and i cant upload my own background picture.. that sucks.. :/
I honestly can not say enough good things about Webs.com. Setting up my website was super easy and user friendly, However, I had many problems trying make improvement changes. The editor doesn't work half the time, when you go to save something it frequently freezes and you lose all your changes. Now when I go to make simple changes that should take less than 5 minutes, I have to spend hours and days because of all the problems.
After spending about a month with super frustration, I finally had something I could live with. It wasn’t what I would normally accept, but it got my message across. I’ll stick with it until I need to make changes. Then I will go to a different site. I will never repeat that experience again.
I started out with the FREE WEBS and was very PLEASED with how everything went together. Lots of choice's to pick. easy uploads ect. Lots of widgets to pick. I loved it and used it until I ran out of SPACE. I understand it was FREE and you have to pay to get more... So I thought This would be worth it since I NEVER had problems with the free site. I paid for the site and BAM!!!! I got DISSAPOINTED the first 5 mins. on setting up my site. The choices were far from acceptable . You have no control over anything. It was hard just to change the color of the fonts. Pictures can not be sized to how big you want them.You get to a certain amount of file uploads and then you can't seem to find the file you spent 5 hours uploading, you have to delete a file that you have prevously uploaded just to get the file you just uploaded, GO FIGURE???? The sad thing is , there is just so manythings that went wrong with the web builder??? If they gave me the chance to use the old web builder on my paid site I would be happy as a clown and direct MANY MANY OTHER to this site. Stick with the free site until they get their problem fixed... THIS MIGHT TAKE A WHILE
I used to write for a web site sometime ago, where my content used to appear under a title. But, when I have added some content in Political round-up page in my telugufilm.webs, it leads to a page-titled testimonials. I think this is not the way I expect to present my content in the web site. I really disappointed with the way it is presented in my site and lost interest in operating the website. If, WEBS take initiative and rectify the problem, many may attract to it. CH.V.RAO
Unfortunately, your service does not support Arabic language fully .... I am an Arab and user I found obstacles in front of me in the supplement or termination of the location where the service you have does not support Arabic fully ..
To illustrate more .... When I want to write, for example, news or an article or publication or headline appear incomprehensible Example of the word Mohammed looks like ........????? .... Do not show Muhammad I hope development of the Arab user understand very many and opens the door for expansion at your service
Thank you very much http://2m-net.webs.com/apps/blog/ http://kanaria.webs.com/
Awesome site for the basics buy id like to be able to make some pictures larger...they can only get so big and its really small....also maybe a poll option to make a poll would be useful but overall very good and easy
Until a year ago, Webs was a great place to host a website. IT was easy to use, and very accurate. There were lots of great features and the price was right! (free ;-) Then they deployed their new updated system. What a DISASTER!! I didn't know they were changing everything and one day I went in to make one change to a site that should have taken no more than 5 minutes. A window popped up to ask if I wanted to upgrade to the new system, I agreed. And that's when everything went off the rails! Five hours later I finally had my site back but I was forced to change my theme and that required a complete rebuild of a 7 page website. The editor doesn't work half the time, when you go to save something it frequently freezes and you lose all your changes. Now when I go to make simple changes that should take less than 5 minutes, I have to budget a minimum of 30 minutes because of all the problems. Coincidentally at the same time the new system arrived, they dropped all free chat support and now only include it with a paid subscription. Also, they started to bombard me with spam asking me to upgrade to a paid subscription. I was actually thinking about it before this all happened. With all the issues and no way of finding out what's going on, there is NO WAY I'm giving webs any money. I now have my own domain name and DNS provider and simply forward all requests from domain to my free webs site. Works great! I will am rebuilding the site with HTML5 directly on another web hosting server and very soon will dump Webs altogether. IT's not worth all the aggravation. Webs is obviously not familiar with the rule, "If it isn't broken, don't fix it!"
i really got interest in your site builder coz.. it seems that i was hook in your program set-up... i was so amazed when i do a book sample in your site, since i was one of the victims of T/S due to some illegal loggers in our place.. many people where distracted and even other people are mourn for the lost of there family and that the're still missing until now when the tragedy typhoon sendong hit in our place.. i know in the future people will still adopt how to do books from any site builder coz ur the expert in high-tech programs. and we are just the one who are exploring what set up would be fit in making site from ur company. hope people in the future will realize that planet earth is now being abuse from natural resources and need to be heal.. so i just say.. i love making site from the sample that i have make.. i'm not in a hurry but i have to make things clear to all website developer that all we do is the same ..coz if the are in my part i dont think so if they can also get what i innovated.. the truth is they are the one who benefited in my sample.. even in my e-songhits.. but i still happy that they did for what i shown but in different style.. my asset now is draining so i need to make a site to get it back from my expenses that i've invest. hope its still fine for your company.. the truth is only last day that i've got my own internet connection. before i'm just using in net-cafe shop per hour.. i think i have the time download some installer that are needed in designing my site.. tnx..and god bless mhil go
I felt pressured to buy into the Premium package thinking that our free website look would greatly improve. Sadly, I found that wasn't at all what happened. The number of new choices of themes to pick from isn't much nor very good. I actually stayed with the same theme that I selected when creating the free site. I was just ok with the quality of the look of the theme, but I figured "well, this is what you get for free - you get what you pay for!" In comparison, the old free site versus the premium site, is like watching standard, old-time television, when everyone else is watching HD television! I thought the look would be clean, crisp and clear and instead it is dull as dishwater.
Another thing I am very, very disappointed in is that I thought I would be able to choose different fonts for my pages, and the actual fact is that I am stuck with a basic default font which leaves a lot to be desired. And furthermore, when I tried editing the font colors, forget about it, it was useless - what I now seem to be stuck with is that every paragraph is in a different shade of the selected color! In a word, the look is Sloppy!
Well, at least we own our domain name for the next two years.
