Building a Website
Now we’re getting to the really exciting part: Actually using your eHost plan to build and launch a new website. When you get to this stage, you’ll probably be glad to know that you have multiple options at your disposal.
First up, there’s the cPanel dashboard with one-click installation of many leading website platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. cPanel is one of the most widely used web hosting management tools on the web, gaining popularity and expert acclaim thanks to its simplicity and efficiency.
Using this, you can launch any of the aforementioned Content Management Systems, along with a host of smaller web building platforms, add-ons, and site builders, just by clicking on the appropriate icon and adding a few basic details about your site.
On the whole, this is one of the easiest and most effective ways to launch websites which look good, perform well, and include all kinds of user-interaction.
Drag-and-Drop Website Builder
Content Management Systems aren’t the only tools at your disposal, and are perhaps not the ideal ones to use if this is your first time building a website. For newcomers, I’m much more inclined to recommend the brand’s drag-and-drop website builder.
Based on the popular Weebly.com platform, this is the quickest and simplest way to launch professional looking websites, and involves nothing more complicated than choosing from a vast library of pre-designed templates and using your mouse to customise things like menus, images, text and colour schemes.
The quality level of these templates is a cut above those offered by some other leading hosting companies, and most are fully responsive, so you never have to worry about how your site will look when it’s viewed on a mobile phone or tablet rather than the traditional desktop computer.
I’ve got nothing but praise for eHost’s website building tools, especially since there’s a variety of options to suit webmasters of all levels of skill and technical know-how.
