Frequently Asked Questions
Is any technical experience needed?
No. No technical knowledge of any kind is needed. A novice can build a fully-functioning website which includes ecommerce, calendars, membership management, and customized feedback forms using a simple, but powerful menu system. However, ASAPSites.com also accommodates more advanced users. If you know HTML programming or have your favorite programs that generate HTML (Dreamweaver, FrontPage, etc), then you can design your site in that tool and then import the generated HTML into ASAPSites.com
What are the system requirements to use ASAPSites.com
To design an ASAPsite, you will only need a PC with Internet Explorer Version 5 or higher.
What makes ASAPSites different?
ASAPsites.com allows a non-technical person to create and update a full functioning interactive website quickly and easily. Features such as calendars with event registration, membership management, feedback forms and e-commerce are easy to set-up and manage in your site. Another distinct feature of ASAPSites.com is that any content that is collected through your site (feedback to questionnaires, membership lists, or order details for ecommerce products) can be easily exported with just one click. This allows for analysis in Excel or any other tool you prefer.
I design websites using Dreamweaver, why would I still need ASAPSites ?
The bonus of ASAPsites.com is that you may use the code generated in Dreamweaver in your site. Then, more advanced features, which are not easily created in Dreamweaver, including Calendars, Membership Management and Feedback Forms can be added and manipulated by you.
Can I match an existing site's look and feel with ASAPSites?
Most sites can be made to look similar or in most cases exactly like a currently existing site. The benefit of changing your site to an ASAPsite is that the text may be easily modified on a daily basis by users who know nothing about programming. Features such as calendars and feedback forms may also be easily modified by people with little or no technical knowledge.
How long does it take to develop a working site?
After filling out an application and paying the small setup fee, your site is instantly created! You can begin development immediately and will have a working site up within a few hours.
Who owns the content created within an ASAPSites?
You do. Unlike other content management tools, you own all of the content added to your website.
