    Hey guys I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of using a web service I met this guys the other day who sells MA web centers? Have you ever heard of this? It's a platform that is used to build and maintain websites. The key features of this platform is it allows the website owners complete control over their websites using a WYSIWYG program. So he would charge around 1500 for initial web build and set up then charge 50.00 a month to his customers so they can keep using the WYSIWYG program along with the customer care features. I have a feeling that he wants me to buy into this web service, but not being a web expert (like some of you) I am unsure of the value of using his WYSIWYG program verses using an actual web developer would benefit a company. Any Ideas? or Advice would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you so much for your time!

    Hi DesignerGirl,

    There are a lot of companies pushing proprietary CMSes (content management systems) still.... though they were more common 5 years ago.

    The only difference in using this guy is that you'll be paying him a licensing fee for the rest of your life.

    You can go with a Joomla or Drupal CMS, which is completely FREE, wtih NO licensing fee, and OWN the website, ADD modules to it, and just get a web developer to skin it and configure it for you.

    Then you can pay $5 a month for hosting instead of $50 a month.

    Good luck!
