PROS / SpaceCraft offers a solid hosting package with unlimited storage, sites and web pages.
CONS / You cannot create an eCommerce site with this web builder.
VERDICT / Between its easy navigation and numerous design and multimedia tools, SpaceCraft works well for both novice and experienced users.
With SpaceCraft, you can create websites quickly and easily. In addition to a strong web-hosting package with plenty of resources to support your users, this website creation software features drag-and-drop functionality coupled with step-by-step product instructions to help even the most novice users create an eye-catching website.
While SpaceCraft lacks a dedicated setup wizard, the software offers instruction on how to perform certain tasks. It provides you with a link to the knowledgebase you can access at all times if you need additional help locating a tool or learning how to make a website. Like all of the software on our lineup, SpaceCraft is a WYSIWYG website builder with drag-and-drop capabilities. More experienced users can edit their site using HTML code.
We awarded this website building software an 81% Ease of Use score for its drag-and-drop capabilities as well as the ease with which you can customize its templates. With SpaceCraft, you can easily add SEO to your content using metatags and keywords. Once your website is up and running, you can submit it to search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo. Both of these features help your website perform better.
One of SpaceCraft's limitations is its selection of templates. While they are responsive, the software only has 33 templates you can choose from. However, the program has a gallery of stock images you can use to customize your template. There's an image editor if you want to adjust the photos on your website or add some of your own. The web builder also features a blogging system.
SpaceCraft uses Google Analytics to help monitor and optimize how well your site is doing. While Google Analytics offers sufficient information, including page views, unique visitors, top pages and search terms, many of our top-rated website creators offer even more in-depth data by supplementing Google's information with the software's own proprietary analytics. We awarded SpaceCraft an Analytics score of 71%. In addition to limited analytics, SpaceCraft does not host a shopping cart.
Despite this website builder's limited marketing features, it offers a strong web-hosting package with each of its plans. The hosting package includes unlimited storage, websites and pages with the Premium plan, giving you more freedom to create whatever kind of site you need. While you have to pay extra for email addresses, the software includes a free custom domain with the purchase of a plan.
If you need assistance or tutorials, you can access the knowledgebase from the control panel at any given time. You can contact technical support by phone, email and live chat. We found that the company was prompt in responding to our inquiries, regardless of the avenue (email, live chat, phone) we used.
SpaceCraft's website creation program includes a good selection of design tools as well as a web-hosting package that competes with our top contenders. While it lacks a few useful tools, specifically a shopping cart feature, it serves as a good option for businesses looking to build a website to promote their company.
