Webs is a website creation service that lets users make fully functioning sites complete with several apps including blogs, photo albums, video galleries, calendars, and discussion forums. Users start by choosing from over 300 templates and can then add rich content and applications to their website via their WYSIWYG Sitebuilder.
Small business owners can obtain custom domain names and email addresses to project a professional image. Entrepreneurs also benefit from user-friendly SEO, site statistics, and business apps like a mobile website builder.
In 2009, Webs launched an application platform and App Store enabling third-party applications distribution in the Webs platform. Participants in the App Store include Cafe Press, DudaMobile, BookFresh, Meebo, and Etsy.
Webs has also partnered with and integrated several third party applications including Picnik for online photo editing and GetClicky for webstats. Other partners include YouTube, Photobucket, and iPromote.
In 2010, Webs launched Facebook connect integration.
More recently, Webs developed a family of products to give small businesses super easy and cost-effective ways to develop an online presence across web, mobile, and social platforms.
The first addition to the Webs family of products came in October 2010 with the launch of ContactMe, a lightweight customer relationship management (CRM) tool that helps small businesses get organized and grow.
In February 2011, Webs added Pagemodo, creator of a do-it-yourself Facebook page builder, to the Webs suite of solutions. Pagemodoâ€™s Pagebuilder enables entrepreneurs to design their own custom Facebook pages for free and with ease.
Webs was formerly known as Freewebs.
