Only 7 templates? Most of them look the same. Doesn't seem all that great.

Hi Rich. You are correct. There is no limit to the bandwidth and storage available on SynthaSite! We give all our users premium support, not just the ones who buy something from us.

Monique.... I would like to add that something to consider about Synthasite is how well our pages are indexed on search engines...That happens because in properties Synthasite puts our info right where it needs to be for us....I am indexed on 1600 pages on Google alone....This was not happening to that extent at my old host and I was paying for that.

I was having a look at some of the posts on the webnode forum
and this here seems to be the general trend...

A problem is reported, or a question gets asked by an individual.
A number of people, (12 in one case), report the same problem.
TWO MONTHS go by and still no reply from support.

This was my favorite reply from one of the webnode users.

Hello Webnode,

Is there someone from Webnode on here reading some of these comments and thoughts?

We've been unable to add any comments to our website for three weeks now and have not heard back from customer support.

Is there a known issue or an email address that we can use to contact someone that will respond?

Thanks, we love the sites functionality but would love to see more interaction from the team itself at webnode.


Check it out for yourself:

Hi guys,
Thank you all for your comments.
I am not saying that synthasite is bad ? But u can't say it as the best.
I don't think so. Just a good customer support is not a strong point for a site.
There are many other drawbacks of Synthasite. I too have created three sites with Syntahsite. Many times I have faced a lot of problem while editing my sites.
Today I went through WEBNODE. I found it more convenient because:
1) It is faster. You can edit your sites more fastly.
2) Automatic publishing and updating of sites.
3) Good and attractive templates. More professional look.
4) Searching tool in the site.
5) Important Pages created automatically. ex: About us, contact,feedback,Our team,guestbook etc.
But in synthasite u have to create these pages one by one.
6) Inbuilt forms in some pages.
7) Apply customised templates.
Seeing these advantages I was impressed with Webnode. I think webspace is not a big matter.If you want to create a small and beautiful site then,its the best.
I think that Synthasite still needs a lot of improvement.

Hello Nitish,

I'm reluctant to defend Synthasite here as it just adds fuel to the fire and I think that there would be better places to debate this issue. but having said that the can is open.

Every self creation "online" site I have looked at has variations. Each of these has a wow factor that they have implemented and is a bit different to another.

The challenge is for the developers to keep up the pace of changing and add new additions. A big call. I also see that each facility has some draw-back which maybe a legacy of what I have become used to and a reaction on my part to a new way of doing something.

The reality is that many of these sites will fall in a reasonably short time and be no more. Lack of support I would think would be a fairly good indicator of problems with commitment by the developer. Others will remain and each will be somewhat different. At the end of the day we will have a number of choices and the choice we make will be our best solution. A great thing.

Synthasite is doing it somewhat differently I think. They are calling for our feedback and use the fact that we are the stakeholders in this product. To me it's very clear that if we want Synthasite is to grow and remain successful then a lot of that is up to us as users. We should give feedback, we should keep up the pressure for changes and new implementations and we do have the opportunity to criticise. At the end of the day if we don't feel that the product lives up to our expectations then we can say "Goodbye". Some have.

I also think that you put yourself into an invidious position by saying that an alternative product is better than Synthasite because of subjective aspects. That's manipulative, childish and mischievous.

I have been watching this thread but have deliberately kept my distance for a while to let it run its course. I think this thread is now drawing to a healthy and satisfying conclusion.

I just want to say from a company perspective, that we are really not interested in entering into any sort of a "battle of the site builders" or saying anything negative about our competitors.

All we care about is being the best we can be at what we do. We respectfully receive any sincere feedback, good or bad. We value our customers and their right to choose and are full well aware that if our service does not meet their needs then they can go elsewhere.

Thanks Nitish for pointing out that we still have a long way to go. That is what keeps us getting up and coming to work each day. If we thought we had "arrived" we might be more complacent.

I really appreciate Peter's balanced post and have very little to add to it. It is so satisfying for us to see that you, our customers feel that you are stakeholders in our development and take ownership in making this product better. Features can and will be developed, but a community like that is worth more to all of us than any money can buy. We hope the conversation will only grow from here, drawing in more voices as we approach this challenge together.

HI every one this is honey A totally new in web creating category.

You know what Nitish and Peter

Before 7 or 8 months when i start to know how to make a website and then my one friend say me about www.blogger.com that time I was so happy because I
consider I can make website there haha how stupid I was.
well after to much search I find synthasite,freewebs,wetpaint,bluevoda website
builder,and I forget one more name.When I read about synthasite I do not understand what It is and I keep it in side and I start two website in freewebs one in wetpaint.

This is a URL of my three websites

http://jumpinjunk.webs.com/

http://yourgamesworld.webs.com/

http://jumpinjunk.wetpaint.com/

These websites is incomplete it was may testing website when I was new.

Well shortly after that I start again to know about synthasite and THANKS OF
GOD I am successful now in what I want.

I want to answer some of your comments.

1 You say :

I am not saying that synthasite is bad ? But u can't say it as the best.

Why we can not say?

IF you can say :If you want to create a small and beautiful site then,its the best. You are taking about WEBNODE.OK

So than I can say if you want to make a data website you can make in synthasite only which allow you to put unlimited data in your website maximum 15MB per file and
no limit of files.

So we also have this Right like you to say that our SYNTHASITE is the BEST.

2 You say : Just a good customer support is not a strong point for a site.

Do you know what is the meaning of CUSTOMER SUPPORT?

CUSTOMER SUPPORT means SOME ONE IS SITING THERE FOR YOU.
How could not it be a strong point for a site.

YOU know what guys I am muslim some friday whan I want to ask question
before pray I ask after finish pray I already have Answer.wow how fast it is.

3 You say : Many times I have faced a lot of problem while editing my sites.
Today I went through WEBNODE. I found it more convenient because:

And than you explain 7 convenient topics I will answer one by one.

first :WE have 39 SynthaSite employees which is ready to listen and respond to you.
How can not it is convenient .

You say;1) It is faster. You can edit your sites more fastly.

Ans) Because you can not do more than typing or little bit more.
If you have 10 pages and you want to put different banners each of them
and we know if we make a good quality banner it will be 9to10MB so the
memory of banners well be 90to100MB or 80MB even 70MB so remaining is 30MB is 30MB enough to make website or you are thinking to make two website.no no no no no no no no no no no .

You say; 2) Automatic publishing and updating of sites.

Ans) When I find these facilities

100% FREE - No Hidden Fees

No Ads, No Banners - It's Your Website!

Unlimited files

SUPPORT of 39 employees.

Then I have no problem to click the update button only to update may website.

You say;3) Good and attractive templates. More professional look.

I think if you have a good choice you will like some thing unique to attract
your customer,friends,family,any one because if all users make his website
in quickly by use of any template so it all be the same no one find something
different graphic which is very important.

You say; 4) Searching tool in the site.

Que)When you have only 100MB what you will search there?
Ans)Only Articles.

You say; 5) Important Pages created automatically. ex: About us, contact,feedback,Our team,guestbook etc.
But in synthasite u have to create these pages one by one.

Ans)Yes your right these pages are very important.

I think its not a big matter if you can type about your own self in about us page so you also can create these pages easy lay .suppose if you
do not need these pages what you will do delete it. And creating them is same as deleting.

You say; 6) Inbuilt forms in some pages.

Ans) Not a big deal synthasite has Wufoo forms,and form Assembly.

You say; 7) Apply customised templates.

Ans) And I say Customize Your Website Template - Make Your Site Unique.

I like synthasite so much it gives me what i want exactly and dont think
small... think unlimited and big with synthasite because this is one and
only best way and right place to show your talent .

With Synthasite you can make mobile software website, computer software website like brothersoft.com and you can sell your product in
online store and much much more.

Synthasite is the best .

I love You love We love SYNTHASITE

Every single person has a different taste to test a different kind of taste

I would allways stick with synthasite though coz it doesnt have any banners ads etc. Pluss its growing fast if you look at the other things there are weard crummy ads on your site, it is not growing and if you compare it to synthasite it`ll be somthing like this 70% synthaite 30%other online web builder! so only the real competetor with synthasite is www.homestead.com and that costs mony!! so synthasite !!!! Ill give you a thumbs up! But theres just somthing about synthasite that nothing els has ! the only bad thing about it is that you get that writing at the bottom of the web page saying made by synthasite and css templates, but i know that you cant change that! ohh and i would like to make a suggestion to synthasite and that would be:
I would like to be able to download synthasite and do it without using the web because ie allways seams to go wrong i use safari but thats no better for some reason so i have to go and use some1elses comp it woild just be usefull if you could download it!
ohh and just another tiny question that is could you get more than one user on a password protected page on your website made by synthasite????????

I agree with Guido, I think that synthasite is great for building a free website, and if anyone else wants to use a different site builder they can go ahead, i mean lets be honest, after making ur website on synthasite, the ease of making it and all the great support you get, y would anyone in their right mind want to jump ship to a different site builder, and have to rebuild there whole website. I personally think doing that would be a big pain in the A. I actually don't mind every page of my website saying synthasite in small letters at the bottom left hand corner, I think that since synthasite lets me host my site for free with them, a link to there website doesnt hurt anything. infact I hope more people discover synthasite so it can grow, and if it grows, they can offer even more great features for freeloaders. I can truthfully say I like things free, and especially right now since the economy is disgusting, I recently got laid off from my job and I hope that once I get my website finished and running, it will help me generate money so i can pay my bills, and seeing how hosting with synthasite is free, it's great!

well actually to be honest that link that says website built using synthasite, a free website creator, in my situation, i've built my website entirely in macromedia flash 8 and just upload the files on blank white pages so that would be cool if it could say something like site hosted on synthasite, a free website creator or something, and if anyone knows a way of getting that done that would be cool. if not then its ok.

Hi Guys !
I am sorry if I hurt anyone.But I think that everyone in this world is free to give his opinions.I was not in a mood to insult anyone.I didn't think that this thread will go so long. I was just sharing an idea.I discussed about webnode so that people know about it.I am not forcing anyone to quit Synthasite and jump to webnode. I just pointed out some good features in Webnode.I think that Synthasite should work on these features.
Synthasite is good but it should improve a bit.

Thank you for everyone who contributed to this discussion, but please don't let it become unpleasant! Let's get on with making great websites and supporting each other as we do so. This has been a welcoming forum despite the occasional disagreement and I am sure we would all like to keep it that way.

I tried webnode even before joining synthasite 6 months ago but didn't like the atmosphere . Now once again I joined webnode because though I love synthasite I needed more features for my new site like site search and attractive templates, I stayed there for two days but then again I came back to synthasite because of the wonderful people who are always eager to help you out here at synthasite unlike webnode which looks like an empty house.

webnode hasnt got the meta tags in the right order so you will be punished by the search engines if you use it to create your website!
