About Cubender

Cubender is an online web tool and hosting provider that will help you build Flash websites quickly. It is not a tool that you can use to learn HTML or CSS or even Flash. But if you need a fancy Flash website that supports iPhone and other non-Flash devices, this could be a useful service. This editor is primarily for small businesses that want a Flash presence but don't want to hire a web design team. It is not well suited to creating and maintaining large-scale websites or for freelancers who work with a lot of clients on various different hosting services.

From the Cubender Team

“[Cubender is] a Flash website builder which is entirely different approach to making a website. Our software replaces the coding writing process entirely. [Cubender has] a ton of innovative features that are not given any weight [in this profile] (from social media integration, a complete drag-and-drop environment, member login systems and visitor commenting).”

—Andrew at Cubender

Target Market(s): Newcomers to Web Design or Small Business Owners
