Webpop makes it easy to create custom designed websites that your clients can keep up to date. No creative limitations and no hosting hassles.
Everybody can make a website today. There are hundreds of site builders making it a trivial job to grab a template, change a few colors, add a custom logo and have a website running. Professional web designers need to adapt to this reality and make sure they offer a value above that of a template-based website with a few custom colors. Webpop lets you make this difference.
Often a CMS will require you to build a site as if working with Lego, putting together small blocks of ready-made html. Just like a professional craftsman would hardly choose Lego as his material of choice, professional web designers prefer to hand craft their own HTML and CSS.
Webpop makes this easy. No pre-defined blocks of HTML, no drag and drop interface requiring you to go through lots of clicks to get the result you require. Just plain and simple HTML and a few custom tags to make the content dynamic.
Webpop is a fully hosted CMS. Webpop runs on the Rackspace Cloud and every part of its infrastructure has been designed to be fast, scalable and redundant.
