Excuse us for our lapse in bringing you an example site last week. Everybody here at Webs was caught up in our redesign, and we hope you have been playing around with some of our new features as well! Our snazzy new blog page is now the perfect place to showcase your websites!

Without further ado, here is today’s example site:
This week, we take a look at Roborovski Hamsters, a website dedicated to providing information and tips for taking care of Roborovski Hamsters, the smallest and fastest hamsters around.

Roborovski Hamsters

Roborovski Hamsters does a great job of making a simple website with TONS of useful information. One of the greatest aspects of this site is their wildly popular forums. They have a bunch of different categories and very active members where people can discuss their hamsters. Roborovski Hamsters also uses these great features:

The entire Webs team wishes you and your families a very happy holiday and a successful 2011.  We wish you tons of traffic for your site and a crisp/colorful new year!

Here are some additional wishes for you and your sites:

Thank you for being part of the Webs family!

Happy Holidays,

The Webs Team

Thank you for all your feedback regarding the new Webs makeover. We love hearing from our users and respect your opinions.

After the new look went live, a lot of you expressed difficulties finding the sidebar manager. Based on your feedback, we have added a new, permanent link to make it easier to access the sidebar manager.  To locate the new button go to your site settings page (located under the Manage Pages section) and scroll midway:

Happy Sidebar Editing!

We have been working on Webs’ new look for months and are excited about finally being able to reveal it to you. We hope that once you have browsed around, you will agree that the
updated site is easier to navigate and allows you to quickly access your site building tools.

Unfortunately, just like with any major change, a few bugs slipped by us. While we are working around the clock to resolve them, we wanted to give you a quick overview of what we have been noticing.

Why was my site so slow for the past couple of days?

As you can imagine, a redesign of this magnitude requires a lot of changes that had to be pushed live at once. This meant that during the launch the connection to Webs was impacted. Some users were not even able to access Webs. This is only a temporary issue and should clear up shortly.

Today we are happy to announce the launch of our brand new look. We’re excited about the newly designed Webs.com so you can enjoy simpler organization, easier navigation, and quick access to your site building tools.

What does this mean for you?

  • No worries, you don’t need to do anything. Your existing login will continue to work.
  • You may notice some elements have moved to a different part of the page to give emphasis to the ones that are most important.
  • A new Control Panel was created that consolidates site-building resources on one page so you can easily and quickly access what you need.

Check out the key changes to the site on the Dashboard and the Site Builder pages:

Not to toot our own horns, but here at Webs, we like to fancy ourselves as pretty smart people,  how else could we get such intelligent and savvy users like you?

Today’s example site, however, made us second guess ourselves. Cube Depot is a website that sells every kind of Rubik’s cube you can think of, not just cubes either. Seriously, there are Rubik’s cube versions of any shape you can think of and even shapes that we have never thought existed. Needless to say, our first time going through the site was filled with a lot of “How the heck’s” and “I don’t even know’s”. These make perfect gifts for anybody because just playing around with one is mesmerizing. Check it out for yourselves.

Lucky for us, Cube Depot’s website isn’t nearly as difficult to maneuver. In fact, it’s one of the simplest layouts and designs we have seen. Solving the puzzles from the site may be hard, but getting one is really simple because of their use of our Web Store App which easily organizes and displays your products. Here are some other useful Webs features they use:

It’s that time of year: the time to enjoy hot cocoa by the fire, build a snowman with the kids…and square away the loose ends of your business. Doesn’t that sound fun? Well, if you define “fun” as being prepared for 2011 then, yes, it will be fun.

Here are four end-of-year tasks that will help you start 2011 off right:

1. Revisit that classic holiday tale: your 2010 financial documents.

Let the ghost of business past guide you through a review of your 2010 cash flow statement, income statement, and balance sheet. If you don’t have the time to prepare these documents, consider hiring someone to prepare them for you. Here are the lessons you’ll learn…
A) …from your cash flow statement: whether your business’s net cash flow went up or down, and where the money went
B).…from  your income statement: get a snapshot of the year with this simple formula: Revenue minus Expenses = Profit (or Loss)
C)…from your balance sheet: a summary of your business’s assets, liabilities, and equity.


We know that finding the perfect gift for a kid can be hard. Who knows what they are into these days and who’s to say that they will like the latest toy a month from now? The solution isn’t to run to the mall and grab a pack of socks that look like they may fit…don’t be that family member.

Instead, check out our example site this week: TINK INK Publishing, a site that promotes the work of Emerson M. Colwell, Jr., a children’s book author. TINK INK has only one book out so far, but it is wonderfully illustrated and written by Colwell himself and would make an excellent and unique (not to mention educational!) gift for a child. A plushy of the main character can also be ordered. Check out the site!


Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over and you still haven’t found the perfect gift? Well that’s okay, because we have your back this holiday season with our Example Site Wednesdays!

This week we have a site that can help you find a gift for that classy, sophisticated friend of yours. The Final Touch Store is chock full of cute and elegant gifts that you should check out!

We love the simplicity of the site design and site navigation. Everything about this site is refreshingly simple which makes browsing the site so much simpler. This site has all of the essentials of a great web store.
