4Templates offer a fantastic selection of templates all at a very affordable price. True, their range, although by no means small, is not the biggest on the market. With 1848 available, you should find one to suit your needs without too much fuss, especially as they have an excellent search engine that allows you to sift through the Template library, narrowing down your search according to Type, sub-type, tags, price and colors. All templates come with corresponding HTML, GPEG/GIF and PSD files as well as the font package and a quick start guide so that you can easily customize your template with web design software such as Dreamweaver and WYSIWYG editors.
Templates are not a complete solution to getting your web site ideas from your head onto the web but they do make the whole process a lot easier. Once you have downloaded the template you will still need to customize it and convert it using web design software and then find a hosting company with which to register a domain name. In this way, beginners will have to start at the bottom of a long learning curve. However, 4Templates offer a fantastic range of tutorials as well as top notch help and support. Those with existing computing knowledge will be able to learn a lot about web design very quickly with these resources. However, the slightly less computer literate amongst us will probably find the whole process frustrating and should look for a more comprehensive (yet more expensive) service.
Overall, 4Templates offer a straight forward website and a useful search engine with which it is easy to find a well designed, reliable web site template. However, the quantity of templates on offer is lower than that of other websites in this category and this is worsened by the fact that many of 4Template’s templates are simply different color versions of existing templates. In this case, those with something quite specific in mind may not find what they are looking for. However, with such low prices and high quality, 4Templates are definitely worth checking out as you may find exactly what you are looking for.
