    "This product is genius -- it is not WYSIWYG however"

    June 18, 2013   |   By dbaaley

    Version: WebSite X5 Evolution 10.0.6.31

    Pros

    Easy to use in a step by step procedure -- lots and lots of quality templates to use. Can make as many websites as you want, not extra fees.

    Cons

    Not a true WYSIWYG program. It is a PREVIEW style. You edit then preview, edit them preview, edit them preview. This can be tedious

    Summary

    I gave it 4 stars for the concept. I have the lower model, Compact 9 and it works flawlessly but does not upload to Secure Websites, which is becoming more popular. SFTP is for Evolution 9 and 10, and a bunch more money. I had problems with Preview, never did get it to work, refund in the works. But, from what I have been able to determine this is only true of very few users, so if that works like it is supposed to this software is, like I said, genius. Not for the purist, however, but for the guy that is not looking to teach Computer science, and with a full working model -- well, like I said, genius.

    "Nothing like the other two reveiws"

    March 15, 2013   |   By danbax

    Version: WebSite X5 9.0

    Pros

    easy to use
    full of choices
    edit tools are really good
    And I am reviewing the Compact version not a trial version

    Cons

    There is a Home Version and a Compact version and the Evolution version.
    The Home and Compact verstions do not support Secure WebHosting uploads, so you have to use a third party FTP software to upload. It does have a built in FTP uploader but is of little use for Secure WebHosting services. You can upgrade to the higher version, Website 5x Evolution version, which is a bummer because myself and others do not need all of the extras with Evolution, Compact is fine but to get Secure uploading you have to upgrade. So save your money, if you need Secure Uploading and jump to Evolution, otherwise you will be like me, $40 poorer and having to spend another $80 to get the SFTP or FTPS (secure uploading).

    Summary

    The first two reviewers seem to have their problems with their own systems. I downloaded Website 5x Compact and a few dollars later and I was up and running. A great design system, almost too easy. I never experienced any of the problems the other two reviewer experienced. I contact support, via forum, and received a response in a timely manner. The lack of Secure FTP uploading really bothers me and it should bother them too as more and more Web Hosting services are moving to SFTP or FTPS for sucure uploading. Bummer, or did I already say that? Bummer anyway.

    "DO YOURSELF A FAVOR: AVOID THIS COMPANY LIKE AN STD"

    February 27, 2012   |   By S_Bohne

    Version: WebSite X5 9.0

    Pros

    If you could get it to install and get any support from the company, this might be a good piece of software. As is, it is a piece all right...a POS.

    Cons

    This software...and the company...is FUBAR.

    Summary

    Took me dozens of attempts to install on an XP machine. After a new release, it installed. I got an unlock code...this was supposed to make it work. It did not...it then asked for a product code. This must be some f*****g Classified State Secret, because I could never get one. Very minimal support from company--all web based. Now a new release, I cannot retreive any information. I give up. I'll use something else. Probably won't be as good, but it will install. I'll muddle through. I hope this company tanks. They got my money. Don't let them get yours.

    "Failure To Launch..."

    January 03, 2012   |   By JPKirkpatrick

    Version: WebSite X5 9.0

    Pros

    Absolutely None!

    Cons

    Trial Version Would Not Run Past "Activation" Screen
    Absolutely NO SUPPORT

    Summary

    Actually? I probably should not be reviewing this product, as after I downloaded it, installed it, it would not let me get past the "Activation" screen. How am I supposed to 'evaluate' whether or not this 'trialware' software program is going to work for me if I cannot get it to work?
    Repeated attempts at contacting the developers of the program also failed to elicit a response; therefore they fail!

    "excellent but not outstanding.."

    November 18, 2011   |   By sankar1991

    Version: WebSite X5 Evolution 8.0.8

    Pros

    its very easy to use and simplest for usage.
    custom templates
    fast operation
    strength of well established tutorials

    Cons

    very buggy this program..if you create more than 40 pages there will be a lot instance where your pictures will be lost..and biggest problem is transferring website .iwp file from old 8 version to version 9..(i tested evolution 8 and 9) also it is very pricy

    Summary

    if you are creating a simple website with less pages this is the program to buy.evolution 9 is far better than evolution 8.if you do not have that much money no doubt go for free bluevoda website builder.(i must say that i am just a user of bluevoda and have no relation with the company in any other way)

    "total rip off failed to send licensing key"

    June 01, 2011   |   By myberney

    Version: WebSite X5 Evolution 8.0.8

    Pros

    got screwed from the start nothing to say good

    Cons

    They have no contact email or phone for support.
    Purchased the full version but they never sent licensing key code.
    ordered a boxed version but they send German not English
    Totally screwed on this one from the start

    Summary

    Complete rip off
    no email or phone support
    no way to contact company
    paid for software but company failed to send a licensing key
    total rip off

    Updated on Jun 29, 2011

    Full of Bugs, Doesn't display web content correct on web, lacks common web features, email contact forms don't work, drops content FTPed to host. Problems with help and support. Printed manual only in German. Customer Service is a loop that say to contact support that sends you to customer service. If you want to get angry and frustrated get this program. Total waste of time and time is money.

    "Easy WYSIWYG website builder"

    March 12, 2011   |   By nalanodrog

    Version: WebSite X5 Evolution 8.0.8

    Pros

    Very simple to get a good looking website up

    Cons

    The user will quickly hit the limits with this freeware product

    Summary

    Anyone building a site will want to use the features available in the purchased product, the freeware is just a "taster". If you like how it works, then purchase the full product. I've been using it for 2 years and I have not yet found anything I couldn't do, but I generally create my own templates.

    "Ease of design is excellent but ecommerce is rubbish"

    April 13, 2010   |   By wotifink

    Version: WebSite X5 Evolution 8.0.8

    Pros

    Designing the website is very easy and ideal for most applications

    Cons

    Can not link card payments to SAGEPAY

    Summary

    The techinical back up is non existent if you go to a partener company in the UK they are worse than useless and can not help you nor can they tell you who can. Send a fax to Italy (no email address given) they ignore it. If you are going to create an ecommerce site then check with your card handler if they can link to X5 prior to purchase. Also help@websitex5.com is no longer a valid address. My advice do not purchase X5 as customer support is non existent.

    "By Far The Best"

    March 30, 2010   |   By Scottn87

    Version: WebSite X5 Evolution 8.0.8

    Pros

    Easy, Fast, Nice looking pages. Everything is great.

    Cons

    It is difficult to navigate their site to find out how to buy it in US currency... but it's there, just keep looking.

    Summary

    I have tried soo many different programs.... Some with five star reviews that I thought were complete trash. This one is really what I was looking for. Allows me to do everything that I wanted to and the templates that come with it are pretty nice, they don't make your page look like a teenager put it together. Seriously, try it. As far as novice website design, this is great.
