Viper Sitebuilder specializes in the creation of easy to use flash websites. The pages created by the tools you’re given are ideal for personal use or if you need an eye-catching website. The company claims that it’s an innovative design tool and utilizes the now-common point and click method of creating a website. Like the rest of the new breed of website builders, you don’t need to have programming skill to get the best out of Viper. It’s a relatively new site and is targeting users in America, the United Kingdom, the European Union and Australia.
Viper has four different packages available.
– Lite: This is the cheapest package at $9.95 a month (or $99.95 a year) and allows you to use one site with a monthly bandwidth of 10GB and a maximum storage space allowance of 500MB. One thing that is noticeable with Viper is the fact that all offers provide you with virtually the same options such as membership tools, widget library, customer support, free of ads and Google Adsense amongst other things. The main difference lies in storage space, number of sites, ecommerce tools and bandwidth because all packages offer unlimited pages.
– Standard: This costs $14.95 a month (or $139.99 a year) and gives you five sites, 20GB of monthly bandwidth and 1GB of storage space.
– Plus: If you’re willing to pay $19.95 a month (or $204.95 a year), you get to create a maximum of 10 sites and have 60GB of monthly bandwidth and 5GB of storage space.
– Max: The most expensive package is $25.95 a month (or $269.95 a year) and you receive 10GB storage space, 60GB monthly bandwidth and are allowed create an unlimited amount of sites.
What Viper Does
No one can say that Viper doesn’t help you create your website. The site itself is extremely helpful and offers video and written instructions designed to help you create and edit your site. The site is remarkably easy to use in any case so you don’t really need the assistance but it is more than welcome. Viper has all the energy and attitude of a new company and they are aiming to get noticed amid the hundreds of website builders out there.
There is no doubt that once you purchase the standard package, you have enough tools to create a fabulous website. The only thing missing from the Lite package is the e-Commerce tools which are necessary if you wish to sell your company’s products and services. Presumably, the Lite package is only for personal use. Viper seems to have pretty much everything that its rivals has including media tools such as videos and flash, image tools to create slideshows and a message forum to interact with your customers. It also provides you with a number of SEO tools such as Google Analytics and tags.
The site itself doesn’t betray much in the way of information so prospective customers may be confused when they arrive on the site. The fact that there is no money back guarantee or free trial could hurt it as visitors could elect to utilize the free trial offered by a competitor. Also, you get little for your extra money besides more storage space, bandwidth and sites. Really, Viper need to offer extra features with their expensive packages. Otherwise, this seems to be a lively website builder which may help Viper become better known internationally.
