PageCloud overview

What is PageCloud?

PageCloud is a drag and drop website builder which provides tools and pre-built templates which allow businesses to create a custom website without the need for code. The web-based design solution allows users to develop and edit a branded, completely customized website using tools such as a drag and drop editor, layering, third party integration of videos, images and fonts, pre-built templates, custom forms, image galleries, and more.

The drag and drop interface within PageCloud facilitates the addition and movement of content from anywhere on the web or the user's desktop, including images, videos, sound files, and more. Content can be manipulated and customized using tools such as layering, resizing, rotating, and stretching, without any detriment on quality. The solution contains an in-built catalog of website themes, which can be customized using the editor, however, in order to provide businesses with complete creative freedom, PageCloud also allows users to create their own website, designed from scratch.

Integration with over 70 third party applications including Pinterest and Getty Images for images, Vimeo and YouTube for videos, iTunes and SoundCloud for music, Happy Fox and Intercom for chat, and Twitter, Instagram, and Linkedin for social plugin, allows users to integrate and customize any type of content within their website. Users can lift and copy layers from desktop design apps such as Photoshop, and replicate them directly within the PageCloud website builder.

Pros
You can actually create anything you desire with no restrictions by simply including things and moving it around. If you change your mind about an image you included to your page you can simply change it with a click, without having to resize and rearrange it to match the initial.

Cons
The client assistance got a live chat service which is offline the majority of the time. rates is low-cost however you can discover comparable services for even less online.

Response from PageCloud


Hey Martin, thanks for your feedback!

Regarding live chat, we are always looking at options to increase the number of support hours while maintaining high quality service.

On the other hand, you'll be happy to know that we are going to be launching additional plans in the coming months to accommodate different website needs. (Which include more affordable plans)

I am able to create and easily maintain my own website, without having to hire someone or contact someone every time I need updates done.

Pros
I love the layout and features. The menu is simple and easy on the eyes. I like that all the main things you need are in the little menu that comes up with each box, like when I ad a picture, all the editing choices I might want are right there and then when I click on another area, it edits just that.... Its really a great software :)

Cons
Sometimes it can be hard to un-group something and it ends up editing the wrong stop, but its super easy to fix with a simple ctrl+z ....Overall I really don't have anything I don't like about the software . Although it would be nice if it was a bit easier to add a new font, but that's about it.

I was able to build two websites from scratch in the matter of days! This was previously unheard of in my circle. I used to use different web apps to build web pages but after coming across an Ad on Facebook I was instantly thrilled to hear the option to design via Photoshop and then send it to Pagecloud. That was absolutely brilliant.

Pros
I love the idea of being able to design my website via Photoshop then transfer those assets into a functioning website. It allows me the flexibility to create in a program that I am familiar with and reduce the amount of coding / back end knowledge that you would otherwise need to create a website.

Cons
The design mode is a bit convoluted in terms of keeping track of layers. If there were a panel that allows to you track layers similar to Photoshop that would make designing a whole lot easier. I wish there were more templates to choose from. A huge roadblock I have encountered is transferring your desktop version to the mobile version when it comes the sizing of some objects. That has been a frustrating process for me. As well as the lack of being able to have a background video automatically play for phone browsers.

Hey there! Thank you for the kind words!

When it comes to autoplaying videos on mobile devices, this was something that was restricted by mobile operating systems until recently.

We've added in support to autoplay .MP4 videos on mobile devices! We have an answer page on how to set this up here: https://answers.pagecloud.com/help/autoplay-video-on-mobile-devices

If you have any questions reach out to support via live chat of through support@pagecloud.com and we can provide more help!

All the best

I first heard about the site from a friend because our website was getting hacked quite often and Rogers, where we hosted before, could not really do anything for us to stop the hacking, just saying, hire a web designer. As I have always liked doing my own website for ease of uploading changes and customization to our business (training workshops for mental health professionals), I needed to find another service that would provide that ease of use with top notch security. Pagecloud, with their security partner Cloudfare, has done this. We have had zero security issues since switching. And the site looks a lot better too. I also like how easy it is to integrate other apps, like Jotforms and Paypal buttons.

Pros
I liked the fact that I did not need to know coding or html, just basic desktop design skills, so very easy to get started. Also liked that it came with secure server pages, didn't need to find that elsewhere.

Cons
I started using it 2 years ago and there were issues with setting up a nav bar easily on every page, it was a laborious process and not seamless. But this has now been corrected with a simple button for nav bars on every page. They have continuously improved the interface and things keep getting better.

I have created a strong, functional, lead capturing web site for real estate. I was also able to create a back end for my team and created an online training academy for my employees.

Pros
ease of use. create a blank page, drag virtually anything you want (picture, file to download, text) onto the page and it instantly becomes part of your website. Page cloud integrates with tons of free programs (and guides you to them through their training pages), so you can learn , grow, and improve your site at your own pace

Cons
the integration from the desktop site to the mobile site is tricky. if you want a dedicated mobile page to go with your desktop page, as you change one the other one changes and becomes arduous to manage. I realized eventually that with todays smartphones and tablets I could eliminate the mobile pages , but i've still found that what shows up on the back end is frequently not fully compatible with I-phones
