Hiway Introduces Server-Based Web Authoring

Web hosting firm Hiway Technologies announced ExpresSite, a template-driven, server-based Web authoring tool that lets customers create a small Web site in a few minutes.

By selecting various options and filling in text fields, anyone--even "the most unsophisticated users," says the vendor - can design and upload a new Web site.

"The goal of this product is to provide the quickest and easiest way for non-HTML users to generate a professional-looking Web site in less than an hour," said Alison Ishimaru, director of marketing for Hiway Technologies. "In addition, once the site is designed, Hiway offers customers very low-cost Web hosting plans to keep the site up and accessible to the world."

Among the 13 different page templates are those with titles such as "About Us," "Contact Us," "Products," etc., each offering a choice of different layouts so that users can achieve a distinctive Web presence. After completing and installing a site, users can maintain it by the ExpresSite editing feature, accessed via an easy-to-use control panel.

Hiway Technologies is currently offering a discount on all ExpresSite accounts. The ExpresSite Web authoring tool comes free with the purchase of a $15.95 per month Web hosting account.
