No matter which web hosting plan you choose, STINS includes SiteStudio, the industry's leading browser-based solution for web site design and construction. With SiteStudio, you don't need to know anything about FTP, HTML, Telnet, HTTP, or imaging software—if you can surf the Internet, you can build your own professional-looking web site.
You will appreciate the ease and speed with which you can build your web site, and the ease with which you can change just about any aspect of it. With dozens of different layouts and color schemes, SiteStudio will let you create just the site you want. And because it's so flexible, more sites can be added later.
- Simple to use : SiteStudio guides the you step by step, presenting you with simple choices regarding color, style and images. There is no software to buy, and no code to learn. In addition, there's no need to mess around with programs such as FTP or Telnet.
- Content and design separation : The content of the website is stored separately from its layout. That means you can completely change the look and feel of your website in six clicks of the mouse, without having to retype any information.
- Complete control over color schemes : SiteStudio includes a number of built-in color combinations that look great with any layout. But if you want to add a little originality to your site, all the colors can be changed, either by using a point-and-click color picker or, for even more control, typing in the color as a hex number.
- Layout templates : The layout of the site is controlled by layout templates. These are created in HTML enhanced by a few additional tags for generating images. A number of layout templates come pre-designed in SiteStudio, and more can be added later.
- On-the-fly image generation : SiteStudio dynamically generates the images it needs for each web site design, so each time you decide to change the color combination for a page, the layout, or just a button caption, the necessary image is automatically created. You'll never need to bother with complex and expensive programs such as Photoshop to create web sites with clean and professional-looking graphics: our designers have already done it for you!
- User-uploaded images : Thanks to the Image Uploader, you'll be able to transfer images to your online account without ever having to leave your browser. These images can be incorporated into page content or even page design. You can create an online photo album, or insert a personal picture to make it a seamless part of the page logo.
- Variety of pages : SiteStudio can be used to make many different pages. You can create an online resume, or build a personal photo album. Everything is done in a simple step-by-step process that is easy to learn and to follow. And because pages are template driven, you can add your own custom page types, or request pages with specific functionality from us.
- One-click publishing : Your website is published with one easy click. But even after publishing, you can go back and change it as often as you wish. Clicking the publish button again will instantly make all the changes made be reflected on the "live" version of the site.
- Persistence : All your information is saved the moment it is entered. If you decide to log out, you can come back and continue building your web site from the exact point where you left off.
- Complete control over the website : With SiteStudio's default settings, you can quickly create unique and attractive web sites. For the advanced user, SiteStudio gives increased control, right down to the buttons on the site.
- Advanced full screen text/HTML Rich Editor : For Windows/IE users, SiteStudio provides browser-based text editor that lets you work directly with formatting, styles, tables, bullets and more. Rich Editor lets you copy and paste the most complex tables from a web browser or from any Microsoft Office application.
- Integration with online shops : SiteStudio lets you create your own fully integrated, user-friendly online business. Larger e-commerce sites can use the online shopping Add-A-Cart system, with everything you need to operate a successful online business: a shopping cart, a secure payment gateway, and a merchant account issued by One-Stop Merchant Services. Smaller sites or personal sites can create an Amazon.Com Web Store.
