With Website Studio a web designer is able to translate design concepts into a web page and deploy sophisticated functionality without worrying about the technical details. Website Studio’s content management capabilities make it easy for users to update website content without knowledge of HTML. Adding new pages, modifying content and making updates is painless, enabled through easy-to-use admin interfaces.
