    "BlueVoda website builder is a Great Value"

    April 1, 2011  |   By Krishnadasa

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 10.2

    Pros

    The web builder itself is very easy to use, with tools we are all familiar with in Word and other publishing programs. The tutorials are short and enable you to build a functioning site with absoutely no prior knowledge html or web architecture.

    Cons

    Some issues of loading the site may appear, due to the drag and drop interface necessary to build the html. Minor issue.

    Summary

    I created my website 4 or 5 years ago with BlueVoda. I integrated it with a calendar service to run my piano tuning business. With absolutely no prior knowledge of web design, I created a website that my customers raved about. No kidding. What did I do right? I just followed the instructions on the simple video tutorials. If there are any problems, you can go on the forum and you'll get answers right away. If you are a DIY person, you can do this. It's only limited to your imagination and design skills. The background html is generated automatically for you. If you had to learn html or Dreamweaver, you would have to study for months, and still be a newbie at it. Get a leg up and make your own site now. Later you can learn the other stuff like html, xhtml, css, etc. Save yourself a ton, invest a very little amount of time, and make your own. You can update it for free. Change it at will, redesign it, whatever, and not have to wait for somebody else to do it for you AND STILL NOT LIKE WHAT THEY DID. Don't ask me how I know because I had a designer make another site for me in WordPress. I don't like it, but I don't want to pay him any more money to fix it. Yeah, you have to opt for their hosting, but so what? It's not like they're hosing you. Heck, they gave you everything to get started for nothing! How about a little reciprocation for the immense amount of work needed to help you get your site up? Even if you decide not to publish it online, you'll learn a lot doing it. Use your brain- if you can do it easily for free, why not? Now if you're a big company and you want to build a world-class website, hire a famous web designer. But, if you want to, you can design a site that looks just as good. You will have to spend more time getting it there, but it is quite capable of doing almost anything you want it to. And it's fun.

    "Indifferent support"

    October 11, 2010  |   By richard0200

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 10.2

    Pros

    Yes, if is free, yes it is easy to build your website with, and yes they then charge you a moderate fair amount to host your site. But...

    Cons

    BEWARE! Tutor videos but NO INDEX anywhere to help subjects. Lack of index wastes your time. Easy web building software is very complex inside, problem-prone Tech support indifferent to angry.

    Summary

    BEWARE! Tutor videos but NO INDEX anywhere to help subjects. Lack of index wastes your time. Easy web building software is very complex inside, problem-prone Tech support indifferent. sometimes sarcastic & snarling and refers you to user forums which are not too bad but not too good. I've been on 3 years and overall it works but I WISH I HAD MY SITE WITH SOME OTHER COMPANY. I hate the snarky, sometimes dismissive support techs.

    Updated on Oct 11, 2010

    Another problem with the Blue Voda service, is that each part of their web-building and hosting requires a different username and password, so you have one set for support, one set for their billing, one set to access your control panel,etc. And sometimes they periodically change the password on you without notifying you. You can then get it thru support, but this takes 24 hours until they respond to you. Altogether I would avoid them if I were doing my website all over.

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 10.2

    Pros

    Extremely, EXTREMELY easy to learn and to use.

    Cons

    Web hosting account required to publish to the internet.

    Summary

    It's the easiest website builder I've ever known, and it is made for all people, so if you feel you're an internet dummy, you don`t need to worry; there are tutorial videos to follow, and it has support system that'll answer your questions about how to build a website. It provides ALL features that you need to create website pretty much, so you can be creative as possible as you can; you just gotta download it.

    "It helped me a lot! Bluevoda is best."

    January 23, 2010  |   By samantha36

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 10.2

    Pros

    Very fast and easy to handle.

    Cons

    All is good except the hosting cost, that you have to bear.

    Summary

    There are plenty of people out there who still only just about know how to work their computer and that?s why BlueVoda exists; it makes it possible for almost everybody out there to make and host a website, steering you away from having to learn any complicated HTML code. Its super user-friendly and a gas to work with.
    I think that the 30 minute website creation time boasted by the site is a bit liberal it is certainly true that it makes the process of building your site very fast, especially with the pre-designed templates and backgrounds that come with the software.
    That website you always intended to build to make money by selling or promote stuff can get sorted in a matter of a couple of hours (I reckon), quite literally, if you get your head down. It has tones of tools, scripts and plug-ins; there are text and video tutorials galore to follow and it?ll save you a lot of money; a hell of a lot of money in fact when compared to the situation where you?d have to hire someone to make your site for you.
    Click and drag an image to wherever you want it and it gets embedded; same with videos and other such content it?s that easy. GUI looks a little like Microsoft Word as well so it?s easy to find your way around. Recommend to anybody who hasn?t a clue (or has, even) about website design and wants to get a website up on the web speedily.

    "An extremely feature-rich website building package."

    January 12, 2010  |   By skillburn

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 10.2

    Pros

    It's free to use, gives all the features that a website builder could ever want.

    Cons

    You gotta pay for hosting -- but you gotta pay for hosting anyway, right?

    Summary

    BlueVoda lets me create websites very, very quickly. It's all drag and drop, and all done graphically. You don't need to put any html in there anywhere, even though you can if you want. I've had massive problems figuring out how to put flash content in my pages before, but here you just click to add flash and put it where you want. Kinda like drawing a website. Ad to this the image editing, page linking and one-click-publishing this is so the perfect website building package which is very, very feature rich. Highly recommend.

    "A powerful and dynamic website builder!"

    January 12, 2010  |   By Robert_2010

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 10.2

    Pros

    Fastest and easiest website builder ever used by me. Very user friendly interface and great customer support to trouble shoot you.

    Cons

    Requires purchase of web hosting

    Summary

    This new-age life is highly dependent on the Internet. It seems whenever we are in need, in doubt, have a problem or question, we always look up to the big ?ol world wide web for the answers. Having one?s own website also seems to be the measure of success today and it?s this truth that has been bothering me for quite some time as website designers are very expensive and I had no idea how to make a website myself. One thing I was sure about, though, was that I did indeed want my own website. I never thought that there could be a software website builder which could create a website so easily and for free, so when I came across BlueVoda, my enthusiasm knew no limits.
    It was just what I?d wanted. BlueVoda can create a whole website in just about 30 minutes and gets them up, live on the internet, by the next morning. It is quite tough to believe that it is so easy but the key is that with BlueVoda you do not need to know how to make a website in the traditional sense. There are seemingly infinite free logos, templates, webpage backgrounds and website headers to help you create a website that is par excellence. I was confused when I saw the numerous logos, templates and web pages but in that instance must have forgotten that I had BlueVoda with me. They gave me the kind assistance of their video tutorials and customer support people.
    BlueVoda has helped me a great deal; I made a beautiful website of my own with several pages. Yes! My own Website! This is really like a dream come true and has happened because of this website builder. I just needed to buy a web hosting account and the rest was very simple.
    My experience of building my own website with BlueVoda has been a very good one. It seems that now anyone of us can be a proud owner of his/her own website and it?s all thanks to the BlueVoda website builder. Really, hats off!!!

    "BlueVoda is really an Internet architect."

    January 12, 2010  |   By kochii02

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 10.2

    Pros

    this software is really easy to use.

    Cons

    i find nothing that appears as a negetive side about this website builder.

    Summary

    I found that using the BlueVoda website builder makes my work really, really easy. You can start using it within a few minutes; the GUI is customizable and really very user friendly and ultimately building a website very easy. I finished the designing part quickly using the image editing software and just dragged them to where I wanted them placed.
    I was done with building my first website within just a few hours! I think I?m a little bit in love with this software and have since used it repeatedly to make websites, including a few for my friends. The way it lets you see the code is really cool too because it kinda shows you the inner mechanics. BlueVoda?s a real time saver and is well supported. Tons of tutorials and information. It?s free to use too and the webhosting isn?t costly and is efficient.

    Builds decent pages

    "BlueVoda great tool to create your own website"

    December 14, 2009  |   By bandbal

    Version: BlueVoda Website Builder 10.2

    Pros

    Free to use and great way to design website

    Cons

    No such features that I don't like

    Summary

    I was told by my brother about BlueVoda, the software for website design, a while back. It was when I was doing extensive research to find a web designer who could work on payment basis (which was always going to be slightly expensive) but in the end I visited the BlueVoda website and did a bunch more reading. While going through the website I found that BlueVoda is free web design editor. I didn?t spare much time in downloading it and having a go at designing my website on my own with the help of the online tutorials (which I did after playing with the software for a while and they really do work)

    The beauty of the BlueVoda website editor is that you don?t have to face the problem of putting your website in someone else?s hands. I still can?t believe that I, without the knowledge of website design, was able to design my own website pretty fast and without too much hassle. Thanks to BlueVoda and its technical team for developing such a magnificent web design tool! BlueVoda is a tool that can be used by anyone who knows English and is able to click a mouse.

    I am not quite ready to accept the truth that, even though I was so apprehensive of building my own website in the beginning but within no time at all I was a changed person; reborn a web designer. Today I have my own website and I am extremely proud of it.
