Writing about web page http://www.hotchpotchfun.co.uk
As part of of my work on the WMCCM (West Midlands Collaborative Marketplace) Start-up Project, I had a need to help a new start-up company called Hotch Potch get a new website up and running to a very tight deadline, but with the ability to allow the client to easily evolve over the site over time without html or web design skills.
A colleague suggested using Google Page Creator which I did after conducting a quick evaluation. In just a couple of hours I was able to easily structure and populate a professional looking website which the client is very pleased with. Although there are some limitations in the styles of site available, I believe there is sufficient scope for producing customised sites for start-ups that can quickly provide them with a valuable and effective hosted web presence for free, with the only cost being for domain name registration if they want a more professional web address than the Google provided one.
I would recommend the use of this online package for anyone wanting a quick, easy to use, essentially free web presence.
