You can design your web site from scratch or, to get up and running really quickly, use one of the professionally designed templates. There are templates to suit everyone and customizing them is easy because you don't need to know HTML or any other complicated programming language.

Simply drag and drop what you want, such as buttons, photos, text, and more, onto your page. And it's just as easy to add music, videos, Flash banners, or anything else you might want on your web site. You can even change the entire color scheme in just a couple of clicks. When we say easy, we mean it!

Free hosting included

Get online straight away! When you buy WebPlus X5, you'll get six months web hosting absolutely free!

It's not just any hosting, it's six months of our Silver hosting package. That means you'll get 250 MB of web space--enough for all but the largest sites, 2 GB of bandwidth every month, a personalized email address, and a sub-domain that is unique to your web site.

WebPlus Hosting

WebPlus X5 includes six months of Silver hosting with every WebPlus X5 purchase. Free hosting is applicable to new accounts only.

Your own unique web address

Get an address for free in the format You can upgrade to a different hosting package if you would like your own .com or similar web address. If you have an existing domain name you can transfer it to a Serif hosting package.

2 GB monthly bandwidth

This is enough bandwidth volume for a popular website with low demands on traffic (e.g. text and images), or for light traffic if hosting your own video or other large files. Content streamed from other servers e.g. YouTube does not affect your bandwidth.

250 MB storage

A web site comprised of text and images will not likely ever fill this space, leaving enough room for some of your own video and audio if you wish.

1 email address

First understand the following is my opinion based on my failed attempt to use Serif WebPlus X5. I wanted a product to replace my old FrontPage. When testing Serif "free advance software" it did everything I wanted a package to do.

Before purchasing the product I asked if the product is one hundred percent stand-alone for development on my PC (does not require any interface to Serif). I was assured that it was. I develop off-line in a remote area of Thailand and only go on-line when I am ready to upload a site. I also told them BEFORE I purchased I wanted a product that had no requirement for me to be "married" to the product developer!

When reading about the features and functions Serif advertises the ability add code for log-in and counters (etc) - they call this "Smart Objects", code that results in data needing to be retained. I asked the same person in customer service, that assured me the product did not require any interface to Serif to develop and use, if the product had these capabilities which I was assured that it did.

If you use a "Smart Object" you have to go on-line with Serif to register it - that is register the html page you develop! Why, because they keep the data on their server!! You cannot keep you own data on your own selected host! You cannot control your own data, you cannot maintain your own data - the data you collect is at Serif! You need to go to Serif for YOUR data! They also say if your usage is too high you need to purchase additional storage from them! You CANNOT develop code or host your internet site without being attached to Serif if you use a "Smart Object". Let me repeat; No counters, No commerce, No "anything" that results in data being stored without a "marriage" to Serif!

I have quite a bit of HTML and site building experience using site creation utilities. Because of this experience, I am not satisfied with the contratints of verizon or network solutions standard web site solutions and authoring tools. Serif offers more control for those of us in the gap between novices and professionals.

After you purchase any Serif product, if you chose to register, you will receive sales calls to cross sell you on the rest of the Serif suite of products. If you plan to go the Serif route, get Page Plus and Photo Plus. The funny thing is, Web Plus provides a better graphics editor than either Page Plus or Draw Plus. So, when I want to create an object, I make it in Web Plus then transfer to Photo Plus to make a .jpg. Basic functionality available in one, such as the ability to fill in a background using similar clicks and commands, should be available and work the same in all three.

I could live with the quirks, especially for the price.

What I cannot live with is support that tells me to read the manual or go on line to find the answer after I have already checked the manual and searched the knowledgebase and found no answers. Especially for a function that worked previousely. Pay close attention to the Serif suport policy.

I purchased four products out of the suite and paid for the upgrades to the next version of each. For this, I expect a vendor to toss me a bone and help with some support. I am now looking for another software package to fill my needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Serif WebPlus X5 stands out in a 'ho-hum' pack February 8, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download
Let me preface this with a caveat. I'm not a professional web designer. I wouldn't want that job for the world. But, I was designing my own website, DailyRhymeTime, for release in March, and I knew exactly what I wanted my site to do and interact with my potential customers. Here are the things I felt were of prime importance:
1. Quick loading Multimedia (Music) while my customer looked around.
2. Ability to enforce my site's structure through MENU's
a. make the button's the way I wanted them to look
b. keep buttons out of sight until needed
c. provide this while giving me clear directions on designing instructions.
d. give me the ability to jump around in my design process without loosing what I have completed.
e. Let me preview where I am in the design process in several web browsers.
3. I'm a poet and my poetry can be any length, so, I needed text boxes with automatic SCROLL BARS. Something so simple to add in WebPlus X5 but missing in so many other products.
4. I need a recognized storefront partner, PayPal, to handle all my transactions, yet work seamlessly with the design software.
5. Ability to make pictures hot spots for navigation as a shortcut for customers.
6. Embed everything in the site while keeping my site's footprint under 100 Mb!!!
7. Do all this for under $100.00!!!

This was copied from a piece of notebook paper I wrote on before buying anything. I wasn't able to meet my requirements after reading and doing my research from searching Google, Amazon, and ASK. I had to get out there and try products. I tried 5 of the best recommended ones and lucky for me, Serif was one. I won't name the others but if you do your due diligence you'll know who.
