A.) Web templates are readymade web-pages. They make the job of putting web pages on the internet really quick.
Q.) How do the templates manage to do it so easily?
A.) Web templates perform as html coded dummy web pages that carry model content. These templates can be edited with ease and can be customized. You can add content, graphics, logo, pictures etc. to create master web pages in no time.
Q.) How do I edit web templates?
A.) That’s very simple! Almost all web templates can be edited. You can use common html editors like FrontPage, DreamWeaver and GoLive along with image editors like Photoshop. These editors are user-friendly and have an easy to use interface. One doesn’t need to be an expert in html editing to use them. But if you want to add minute details and perfect them, opt for template customization services that are offered by most web template providers.
Q.) But why will I use web templates - does it do me any other good?
A.) Web templates can in fact lend a fair bit of hand to save lots of money and time. The blend of these two with expertise makes web templates – the best option. A web designer can ask for anything in the range of $50 to $200 for designing a single web-page and he will take 15 days minimum.
With a web template to create a website, it would come around $40 max and save 12-13 days. Isn’t that a deal? Websites designed with web templates can go live within a day after editing and pasting graphics. Now, you don’t need to be an Einstein to figure out which one is the cost-effective and time-saving option. Do you?
Q.) What about Flash websites?
A.) Have you ever been to one of those famed jewelers websites – if you have been you will know how much time they take to open up? With an average time span of 14 secs as attention, not even 5 out of 10 people will wait for them to open up. Designing a flash website costs you money and consumes a lot of your time. This extra time is saved using web templates. But if you are really rigid on getting one, look for the template websites that offer flash website templates of good quality @ low-cost. Insert content and put ‘em up.
Q.) I need to create a copyrighted website. Help!
A.) Almost all website template providers offer an option of copyrighted or non-copyrighted templates. The difference is that the copyrighted templates are sold only once. If you buy one, as the owner of the copyrighted template you will get all user rights over it.
In the case of a non-copyrighted website, the rights of usage are reserved with the template ownership company – which they use over and over again. So in a sense, a copyrighted website is unique as it uses unique copyrighted website templates.
Q.) All this is very theoretical…just tell me how do I find a quality template?
A.) There are little things to keep your eyes on.
Good quality web templates have the following:
- These web-templates are editable
- The web templates are 100% compatible with popular html and image editors
- The coding is uniform and friendly. This means that there is no change in the structure of the template on content or graphic inserts when you customize.
- The web template should be easy to upload on the web
- A webpage created by a web template should download in any browser minus hassles
NOTE: If you buy templates that don’t meet the terms above, sorry but your deal was a bad one. The said web templates are of poor quality.
Website templates are easy and fun. They give you flexibility and help you host your website.
There are many good web template providers on the web. Some of the ones I have had memorable experiences are buytemplate.net, templatemonster.com, templaterover.com and trendytemplates.com. They provide high-quality web templates that are easy on purse and work beautifully.
