If this is your first time building a website, then BlueVoda Website Builder is one of the best options, and you will be shocked at how easy it is to use! Everything is "drag and drop". No need to know HTML or any other techie language, its as easy as painting by numbers! They have numerous online video tutorials and the folks in the forum are always ready to help.
The layout is very similar to professional programs such as Dreamweaver and Front Page. Many professionals who use these programs have given very high regards to Blue Voda which you will see in their testimonials when you go to their site.
BlueVoda Website Builder has extra tools that allows you to add banners, image rollovers, ad banner rotators, photo galleries and more. Talking about each of the toolbars will take away your pleasure of discovering the program, so our advice can be only one: after installing it, hit the Video Tutorials button that you will find in the lower left corner of the interface (it took us a while to see it...) and you'll have the world at your feet soon!
Templates is a magical word today, and BlueVoda couldn't miss such an opportunity. There are a lot of templates that you can get and install from the producer's website, BlueVoda Website Builder also comes with a free FTP client, called Blue FTP.
