Zoho Sties, a new web app debuting today aims head-to-head against its competitor, Google's GoMo initiative, a mobile website conversion tool powered by DudaMobile. Zoho Sites, in short is a drag-and-drop website builder that allows anyone to build a professional website in minutes, without needing to know HTML or CSS.
Zoho Sites, is an all-in-one product and allows business owners to build desktop-sized websites optimized for mobile devices. Other features offered by the Zoho Sites include built-in-themes, built-in blogs, domain registration, web hosting, and support for multiple authors or site moderators.
Plus, it comes ready with third-party app integrations, including support for Google Analytics, Google AdWords, Google Maps, YouTube, Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Picasa. These elements can be dragged-and-dropped into place on the website.
The site builder is also integrated with other tools in Zoho's productivity suite. For example, Zoho stores all content in the Zoho Creator database, and when that database is modified, the website automatically updates.
Zoho Sites also offers a form builder which lets site owners handle things like support requests, again without writing code. The forms can kick off email notifications and other integrated custom workflows as well.
Zoho Sites will be available both as a free service (two websites with two forms each, one blog, unlimited pages) and paid professional edition, which costs $39/year and includes six websites, each with 10 forms, a blog, unlimited pages, and include support for AdSense and a full rebranding.
