The website market has changed a lot in recent years
Providers such as WIX, Jimdo and others have recognised the need to make it easier for smaller companies and private individuals in particular to access their own website.
Even an online shop with its own product catalogue and secure payment processing is no longer reserved for professionals.
While the modular systems were slow and sometimes clumsy in the beginning, they are now very mature and offer professional solutions for most typical use cases.
The beauty of these tools is that they are based on modular design templates created by professional designers and programmers.
With just a few clicks, they can be customised to suit your own project – simply by drag & drop and text editing.
A professional website can be put together with just a few clicks
As colours, fonts and layout settings can also be adapted, it is still possible to implement an individual design.
If you reach the limits of the modular systems, you can also use a CMS tool such as WordPress with a little help to get started and realise more ambitious website or blog projects.
Despite all this, you still often meet people who believe that everything to do with websites is extremely complicated and technical. But this is no longer the case!
With the right advice and well-written instructions, any reasonably experienced computer user can now create a beautiful and functional website.
Our idea: a neutral tutorial magazine that provides transparent advice
But which provider suits my requirements? What do I need to consider when choosing?
What tips and tricks can I use to create a really beautiful website?
Where can I get the best value for my money?
We answer these questions in comprehensive, carefully checked and easy-to-understand guides and test reports.
That is our quality standard:
- We explain in simple and easy-to-understand terms
- But we also go into depth and explain details
- We give you provider-neutral and transparent advice
- We want to arouse enthusiasm for website topics
Questions and answers about Homepage-Guide.com
We built Homepage-Guide.com on the basis of the blog CMS WordPress.org. We wanted the portal to cover a wide range of topics, so the flexibility of our own CMS (content management system) was important to us. As we have also been dealing with website topics professionally for many years, we wanted to incorporate our knowledge into our own project and be able to control everything from the ground up.
We also had our own custom theme with some special modules developed to make our articles easy to read and to present the sometimes abstract, technical topics graphically.
And because a fast-loading website was important to us, we opted for premium web hosting from Raidboxes.

In order to be able to pay for our editorial work, the operation of the website and ultimately our livelihood, we sometimes use so-called affiliate links.This means that we may receive a commission if you click on a provider link and book a chargeable tariff there.
This does not disadvantage you in any way, the price does not change for you.It is also important to us that we provide neutral advice and only recommend providers that we have tested extensively ourselves and are convinced of their services.That’s why we usually present different providers and make their strengths, weaknesses and pricing transparent.
However, our editorial standards go far beyond simply comparing providers: in our step-by-step guides, we explain how to set up the website tools and which tips you should know in order to achieve the best results for you!
A lot of research work and editorial diligence goes into our instructions, so we are very happy if one or the other article has helped you! Why don’t you write a nice comment under the article that helped you, the author will be particularly pleased!
Perhaps our instructions are also of interest to one or two of your friends? Then we would be delighted if you would share our website on social media or forward a link to interested friends/colleagues/…!
If we were able to help you choose or set up the right homepage tool, we would of course also be delighted if you book it via one of our commission links. This happens when you click on one of the provider links and then carry out the booking. You will not have any disadvantage or additional costs.
