Mr Site Takeaway Website Version Two review

£34 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Mr Site

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

Mr Site Takeaway Website Version Two promises to make website creation and hosting a simple and painless affair.

Chances are that at one point or the other everyone has wanted to possess their own website. And hiring a professional to do it may just be too expensive. Mr Site Takeaway Website Version Two promises to make website creation and hosting a simple and painless affair.

Mr Site Takeaway Website is aimed at home users and small businesses who want their own website. The box that you get on purchasing the software merely contains a CD with a few internet tools and the software manual, a manual in booklet form and your activation card with the activation number.

Using this you have to register on the Mr Site website, immediately after which you can get down to creating your website. On purchasing the service, you get 150MB of web space, 20 email addresses and a year's worth of hosting. After the first year, Mr Site Takeaway Website Version 2.0 costs £3 a month. The first step is registering your domain, for which Mr Site offers you various domain names (such as .com, .biz, .in).

On the Mr Site page, you begin choosing a design for your site. There are over 100 templates offered in Mr Site Takeaway Website and you can further change the background colour according to your choice. You also choose what kind of menus you want and where you want them placed. After choosing the number of pages that you want, you can start adding content.

To format text, Mr Site Takeaway Website offers an MS Word-like interface allowing you to make use of advanced features such as tables - or web-centric details like radio buttons and drop-down menus. Alternatively, there's a simpler interface in which you can type and add pictures or files for download.

Mr Site Takeaway Website also allows you to add other features to your site, such as an online shopping page using PayPal's services, an image gallery, a music jukebox, contact forms, guest books, password-protected pages, blogs and even forums.

Creating a website from scratch took us about two hours thanks to Mr Site Takeaway Website's intuitive and very simple design. We liked that everything could be done in a step-by-step manner, leaving nothing to be confused about. And the number of features available to the user is quite noteworthy.

Mr Site Takeaway Website allows you to add widgets, Google Ad Sense and Analytics and even a Mr Site ad-banner to make your website earn you some cash.

    Mr Site Pro

    Mr Site, for all its revamp, really looks like a design tool from a different generation. The page layout is largely fixed and page elements are effectively entered blind. To find out more, read our Mr Site Pro review.
