One of the nicest things about What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get website builders is that they offer brilliant ‘turnkey’ solutions that liberate users from annoying issues, technical intricacies and other problems distracting them from what really matters – site improvement, updating and promotion. By all accounts, one of the most well-thought-out solutions in the niche of DIY site creation is offered by MotoCMS website builder: you make a one-time payment and get an almost ready, 100% customizable website. This article details the process of website creation with MotoCMS site constructor.
Step 1: Pick a Template
MotoCMS provides users with a unique web templates category – Flash and HTML CMS templates. To put it simply, each template comes with an inbuilt Content Management System which integrates editors of different levels: design editor, content editor, point-and-click widget integration, mobile view editor etc. – everything is done via your MotoCMS control panel.
MotoCMS template collection has over 1,500 HTML and Flash designs engineered by professionals with years of experience. They’re grouped by industry for easier browsing and can be tested in demo mode without registration. Each template offers different style in content layout options, navigation, headers and other design elements. MotoCMS website templates are updated on a regular basis.
Step 2: Upload It to Server
Each template has a detailed description including Hosting Requirements. Once you have purchased a template, you need to purchase a domain name and hosting or use your existing hosting account. Though MotoCMS partners with Bluehost, their service doesn’t cover hosting and domain name purchase. This means you’re free to use any web hosting provider. This is one of the major advantages of MotoCMS over its competitors which don’t allow users transport their websites. If you choose Bluehost for your MotoCMS-based website, you get a discount ($3.95/month instead of $6.95).
Step 3: Customize and Publish
Along with the great-looking template you will get a flexible content management system enabling you to customize the design and extend site’s functionality in the WYSIWYG editing environment. Each template already contains preset widgets that can be configured as per your needs, so there’s no need to upload third-party apps, unless you so choose. Each template is equipped with Rss Reader, Google Maps, Media and Music players, Search and News, HTML and Rich Content widgets just to name a few. In addition to the default widgets you can upload a custom widget. You may also upload custom fonts (MotoCMS support multiple languages).
MotoCMS devs create templates that are web standards compliant, guaranteeing that your website will look and run properly across different devices, operating systems, browsers and their various combinations. You may customize your website’s mobile look using MotoCMS Mobile Editor. It also employs the drag-and-drop editing principle: just select, drag, drop, resize, rotate and edit any element of the design. Remember to save changes and activate the mobile view of your website before leaving the Mobile Editor.
Because everyone has different website building experience and different needs, MotoCMS provides users with numerous video tutorials and step-by-step guides. They’re also available over email and live chat.
