There is a light that never goes out… it continues to lure people long after it was lit. Two things match that description: sites and stars. Unlike stars, which fade away in the end and may well be dead by the time their light reaches us here, some websites are very much alive after thriving for decades.

You know of whom I speak. Giants like Youtube, Yahoo, or Microsoft have been around for ages, but their official websites haven’t always looked half as good as they do now. In fact, they’ve come a long way. It’s almost hilarious to note the crudeness of your average UI only a few years ago, but looking back makes you realize just how much technology has evolved – and design with it.

Regardless of their roots, world-renowned websitses have one thing in common. They all started out as brilliant ideas that caught a beautiful shape thanks to graphic/web designers. Their appealing design is the main reason why millions of users crowded to their services. Which begs the question, how do you make your website as memorable?

Naturally, when setting out to create a website, your very first concern is that it should look stunning. What few people understand is that it’s well within their power to make great things happen – if only they work with an accomplished website builder.

Take IMCreator, for instance. This tool offers loads of ready-made gorgeous templates to use for yourself. Not only does it enable the average Joe to craft dashing sites with ease, but it doesn’t charge a penny for its services. Intrigued ? Visit their page, take the 60-second tour, and you’ll see what it’s all about.
