Microsoft takes on Wix and Squarespace with a new website builder packed with goodies


Microsoft launched a new low-code website builder and a hosting platform for business users called Power Pages.

Previously, Power Pages existed as a feature of the Power Apps platform, which allowed users to build mobile apps that ran on Android, iOS, and Windows.

However, Microsoft has now relaunched Power Pages as a standalone offering to help developers more easily design, manage, and publish sites for desktop and mobile.

Now in preview, the new Power Pages builder offers a range of new features and utilities.

Some of the features and capabilities of the newly designed platform include a design studio where web developers can preview, design and publish corporate websites and templates for site designers to use.

The solution also comes with built-in developer tools for Visual Studio, GitHub, and Azure DevOps to help web designers and developers implement business requirements on their sites.

Microsoft also offers a Templates Hub that provides websites complete with demo data for users to manage app scheduling, registration, and submission.

Regarding security, Microsoft has added governance tools to Power Pages to allow users to secure their website content and data through access controls and Azure.

Tech Radar Pro contacted Microsoft to find out how much the solution will cost users and whether Power Pages will offer a website building solution for beginners and people with no coding knowledge.
