iOS-ready with its latest product, Gandi Basekit.
This new website creation tool was built for compatibility with Apple iOS devices, meaning
iPhones and iPads. Customers create sites that will be easily, automatically viewable
on these mobile devices; and, of course, they will be hosted by Gandi.
Oh, and it’s totally free.
Websites can be created using HTML5 and CSS style sheets, an

does away with the need to set up Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) or Infrastructure-as-a-Service
(IaaS) systems for similar functionality.
The tool comes with a variety of features and benefits for
users. For instance, it was designed for ease-of-use, and offers preconfigured
and customizable theme templates, so users can start building their websites
in no time. That being said, it also comes with a powerful infrastructure for
more advanced developers, providing tools that allow experts to directly edit
their sites’ HTML and CSS codes using preset or user-supplied graphics and
And, one cannot forget the integrated social media tools (including
link installation for the most widely used social media sites), e-commerce
integration with a Google Checkout widget for payment functionality and intuitive
content management that allows users to edit block text, add more blocks,
reposition images and add a submit button or navigation menu using a simple drag-and-drop
Basekit is the latest in Gandi’s portfolio of free tools. It
is currently available for all of Gandi’s customers.
