What is a "Kitset"  Website?

This page attempts to explain how a "kitset" website building system works.

A "kitset" house is similar to a "kitset" website.

Kitset Houses

Imagine that you are having a "kitset house" built.  Each room of the house comes in its own box and the builder just has to open them and fit them together.

All houses have one kitchen, one laundry, and one garage.

You'll also want one or more bathrooms, one or more living rooms, and one or more bedrooms.  You must decide how many of each you want.

There are also optional rooms.  You might want a study room, or a rumpus room, or a sleep out.

Some rooms come in various styles.  Is that a garage for one car or for two?  Bedrooms come in single- or double-bed size.  Should the bathroom have a bath or a shower?

Then the builder gets on with it and builds what you ordered.

When finished, the house must be decorated and furnished.  The decorators paint it with the colours that you want.  Finally the removal men put your furniture and pictures in the rooms and you can use it.

Kitset Websites

Kitset websites are like that.  Each part of the website, each "webpage", comes in its own file and the website builder just has to open them and fit them together.

Every website has one Home page, one About Us page, and one Contact Us page.

You'll also want one or more products or services or activities pages, and one or more galleries to show pictures of what you do.

There are also optional webpages.  You might want a News page, or an Activities page, or an Events page, or an FAQ page.

Some webpages come in various styles.  Is that a Home page with one column or two columns of text?  Is a map required on the Contact Us page?  Is that a header on each page with one image in it or two, or three.

Then the website builder gets on with it and builds what you ordered using, in the case of Kennis, their KitSites computer software.

When finished, the website must be decorated and furnished.  The website builder gives it the colours that you want.  Finally the website builder puts your text and pictures in the webpages and you can use it.

The website you are looking at is a KitSites website from Kennis and was built just the same way.
