AJAX-based SynthaSite Launches New Interface

Simplified Site Creation

In today's Internet age, having a presence online is standard, if not critical. SynthaSite, the do-it-yourself free Web site builder, released a newly enhanced user interface that makes it easier for everyday Internet users and small businesses to leverage the reach of the Internet and create a professional quality Web site quickly, easily and
for free.
 
SynthaSite's AJAX-based Web site builder is an intuitive tool that allows anyone, regardless of technical know-how, to create and publish a Web site with ease. Using the What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) system, SynthaSite's offering facilitates the design process by displaying a user's content during the creation and editing process similarly to how it will appear when published. With SynthaSite's drag and drop technology, users can easily incorporate a variety of widgets including Flickr streams, YouTube videos, Google Gadgets, Genbook online appointment booking and many more. Users also get free sub-domains and hosting for their sites. Web sites created on SynthaSite are universally compatible across operating systems, as well as browsers such as Internet Explorer and Mozilla.
 
The new user interface announced is designed to make it even quicker, easier and more intuitive for anyone wanting to build a Web site.
 
Highlights of the new user interface include:
  • One Click to Begin: By streamlining the process for signing up, Web site creators can now start building and editing their Web site with just one click
  • Increased Creation Space: The newly enhanced Site Builder incorporates more horizontal space, offering Web site builders more room for their creations to take shape
  • Simplified Key Functions: Key functions such as the saving and publishing process, as well as the site manager page, have been simplified making the experience of creating a Web site more streamlined
  • Friendly Look and Feel: The new user interface is friendly and intuitive, making Web site creation easy and fun
"The Internet is a powerful tool that, unfortunately, most people are not utilizing to its fullest potential. More than 70 percent of small business alone don't have a presence online," said Vinny Lingham, CEO and founder of SynthaSite. "At SynthaSite, we see ourselves as the onramp to the Internet for the everyday user; now, anyone who can access the Internet can have a professional-looking, personalized Web site."
