In the past few blog posts we've been talking about using a CMS (Content Management Systems) platform for setting up and maintaining a website for your MSP.
Although these systems make it easy to run a website once they are setup, there is still a bit of a learning curve to getting one properly integrated into your web server platform.
An alternative to running a CMS based website is to use a static HTML website. These types of websites are good choices if you don't plan to devote a lot of time to maintaining your web presence. If you're looking to just setup a basic web page with information such as your address, phone numbers and other basic info, using an HTML template based system for your MSP website may be the best choice for you.
One of the most popular website template software packages for making static HTML websites is Adobe Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver makes it easy for groups of creators to work on the same website and offers features such as file check in and check out, revision tracking and numerous other multi-user applications.
Dreamweaver has also branched out from its HTML roots and allows authors to integrate JQuery operations, mobile platform previews, and multimedia into Dreamweaver authored websites.
One of the ways that Dreamweaver provides powerful flexibility for MSP website authors and creators is by making it easy to use and apply different templates for your website. This allows website editors to quickly create new webpages or edit old ones without having to reinvent the wheel.
This is by no means a complete list, but here are a few ideas to get your started with some Dreamweaver templates for your MSP website. Many of these templates can be further adapted, giving you the flexibility to create a template that meets the exact needs of both you and your website users.
That's just a short list of free Dreamweaver templates that we pulled up you might want to use for your MSP website. If you can afford to shell out a few bucks (usually between US $25-$50), you can purchase much more elaborate and eye catching designs.
Here's a great video that shows you some of the ins and outs of setting up a template in Dreamweaver.
