What are the features or tools of the platform that have most impressed you?
I’m not sure if any other builders give so much freedom for customization to their programmers. Jimdo presents the default, but they have a secret door for the developers who can do whatever they want. That is the most impressive aspect. We can code completely custom templates without input or oversight from Jimdo.
Are there any areas of the software that could be added or improved upon?
There’s definitely room for improvement, but I believe the guys do a really good job. However, I believe that they could make their software a bit more flexible to an unfamiliar user to code. Someone who doesn’t know coding perhaps needs something more basic. I also know they are still improving it. I believe that till the end of the year they will test a lot of new features. I have spoken with a high ranking employee at Jimdo in Hamburg, Germany and she was saying that they will create new templates with new features and new designs soon. It will be really something special I believe.
What should customers be thinking about when it comes to more advanced features? And how does Jimdo compare to its competitors in this area?
To be honest, I’m not very familiar with other website builders. I believe, compared to other website builders, the most important thing is that Jimdo allows you to create things if you know coding. It gives you a window to create things, to make features, and to make unique designs.
What tools are available to integrate with Jimdo?
How would you compare Jimdo’s hosting performance and uptime, SEO, etc?
I’ve been working as a Jimdo expert for the last three years. I’ve never had a problem with that. They have really, really strong uptime. I don’t know if they have different servers for the States and for Europe, but they do a great job. The site has never been down for my paid clients. I’ve never had a problem with time loading or pages down or something like that. I think they use a different server for paying clients.
