When comparing web hosting products and services, it is important to
compare the site builders (i.e. website generators, HTML generators, WYSIWYG
editors) that are included in the hosting package.
Many web hosting packages include special software to design and
implement websites using predefined templates. Unlike Microsoft's
FrontPage or Macromedia's Dreamweaver, site builders are included in the
price of some web hosting packages. Web Builder software normally runs
on the web server and no additional software is required on the client
machine. The generated websites can range from simple brochure-type websites to
highly sophisticated e-business applications with shopping carts and credit
card processing functionality.

site builder functionality.
