Sandvox 2.10: A newcomer-friendly tool for publishing simple sites

Nathan Alderman | July 15, 2015
For everyday folks who want to build a website but don't know how, Sandvox (Mac App Store link) offers a friendly all-in-one solution. Web design pros who need powerful, versatile tools won't find them, however.

Sandvox Hosting offers four plan tiers, starting at $8 a month for the basics. Higher tiers include one or more free domain names, multi-site management, and the ability to forward email from your site to your own private address. While Sandvox's rates weren't the cheapest I found, they seemed reasonably in line with most of the competitors I looked up. Karelia lets you try the service free for 14 days without even asking for your credit card info.

Bottom line

I had fun using Sandvox, despite its limited abilities and occasional clunkiness. I think it'd make a particularly great classroom tool to help students build online school projects. Sandvox aims to offer users the simplest way to make a website, and I think it succeeds handily.
