AWSP – or Advanced Web Site Publishing – offers users a collection of 72 templates they can use to build their own website. Though the selection includes templates for niches like restaurants, education, medical, marketing, and portfolios, among others, the templates are simply unattractive. They are tired and dated and do not offer users a pleasing looking website at all.
The ugly templates are a shame, considering that AWSP has plenty of excellent features to make sites highly functional. All sites are mobile responsive and, depending on the plan you select, you get 20 or 50 email addresses. There is an extensive collection of online documentation to help guide you through the process of building your site, and if you need further help, you can email AWSP and get a response in an average of just an hour. AWSP also offers phone-based support. Extensive e-commerce tools are available, as is blogging. You cannot download the site, however, should you desire to work on it elsewhere.
Other than the ugly templates, a big drawback of AWSP is the price. At $29.95/month, their introductory package is extremely expensive, and at $49.95/month, the e-commerce plan is even more pricey. Granted, you get tons of features for the price, but you also get a website that is not attractive and looks like something that is in need of an update, even though it was just created.
