Global web hosting company, UK2 Group, has updated its Website Builder to offer fully mobile responsive websites to all small and medium-sized businesses. Available across all web hosting plans with version 7 of the software, the update enables SMEs to build sites which automatically change the content and layout to fit the device.
Designed with first-time website creators in mind, UK2 Group’s Website Builder version 7 would offer a more intuitive user interface coupled with sophisticated features and functionality for more experienced users. It requires no HTML coding knowledge and has a simple drag and drop interface for text, video and images. The all-new preview tool also means that it is now possible to check exactly how the site will appear on a desktop, tablet or smartphone screen.
Web hosting customers can opt for one of 200 website templates, with more designs set to be released every few weeks. The swappable templates offer customized fonts, backgrounds, colors and images to help businesses stand out. Website Builder templates have social media connectivity built in to help businesses to promote sharing across Facebook, twitter, Google+ or LinkedIn.
“There’s no doubt we’re living and working in an increasingly digital world and the importance of having an online presence has become vital for business success,” said John Morris, COO of UK2 Group. “Hiring a web developer is not a financially viable option for everyone but with our new Website Builder, our customers can quickly and easily create professional looking and functioning websites that cater to changing web access habits, whether it is someone using a tablet on a train, or reading content from a smartphone on a sofa at home.”
Website Builder version 7 packages are available now on UK2.net. Version 6 customers will be offered the option to upgrade to the new platform. Since this is a cloud-based web creation tool, users can access work from anywhere they have Internet access.
