1-Click Website Setup
You need tools to create your website since web hosting providers will not do it for you. If you are an expert web programmer, you may choose to install a comprehensive web development application on your computer and then upload your work on your server. But what about beginners or those who have completely no knowledge of web designing? iPage has an answer for that.
iPage Site Builder
iPage is a leader in web hosting because of its affordable services. They offer web hosting services at inconceivably low rates, perfect for new users. Aside from this, iPage’s service is also unmatched.

On top of these, iPage has its own web development tool called Weebly Drag & Drop Site Builder.
Weebly Drag & Drop Site Builder
iPage’s site builder is called Weebly Drag & Drop. Yes, its site builder is “Weebly” – the same Weebly that provides free hosting services online. Weebly is in fact an independent web host that offers an excellent site builder to their users. Its tools allow users with little to zero knowledge in HTML and web programming, to create beautiful web pages. This is because of Weebly’s “Drag & Drop” feature which lets users add, edit and remove elements on their website using only their mouse. To add an element, you just drag it from the design panel and then drop it where you want it to appear on your site. You can do this with text boxes, headers, menus, buttons, images and a lot more. No need to edit your site’s HTML codes because Weebly will do it for you. You can also change templates in one click so you can easily spot the best design and theme for your site. A lot of users fell in love with the Weebly Drag & Drop site builder that Weebly decided to lease them to commercial web hosts like iPage. This lets iPage account owners to use the exact same tool offered by Weebly on their own websites.
Benefits of Using Weebly
- No need to install site builders – Weebly is integrated in iPage, meaning, there is no need to install it or any other application on your website. This way, you can immediately start building your website when your account is created. Before, website owners only rent web servers and they themselves have the responsibility of building and publishing their site. This entails the use of an independent web development tool which comes at a cost. Having an integrated site builder also lets you save on the cost of web development tools.
- Publish sites in minutes – Again, since the site builder is integrated with iPage, you can quickly start designing your web pages. More importantly, publishing your site online only takes a few seconds. Conventional web development tools must be installed on your local computer and you can only use it there. Therefore, you need to upload first your site’s files on the web server before you can even see it in action. This is not true in the case of a site builder. Just one click and you’ll immediately see your masterpiece in action.
- Web designing made fun and easy – Because Weebly is so easy to use, even your kids can help you in designing your site. Web development is like solving a jigsaw puzzle. You simply drag and drop the puzzle pieces to complete your web page. No need to memorize HTML tags and spend hours on video tutorials. All you need is your imagination.
You can immediately access Weebly Drag & Drop Site builder from your iPage admin control panel.
