Website Designers : Dreamweaver vs. Web Objects?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
i'm completely new to the mac forums and wanted to get a general opinion on what application do mac users use? dreamweaver or web objects? i hear dreamweaver is a better application and easy to use... is this true?

also...for creating websites, what domain register and hosting company do most mac users prefer? in the past i've used godaddy and 1&1.

opinions welcome...


new macuser.

    I'm a recent switcher and have found JEdit to be perfect for my needs for building websites, the syntax highlighting is superb

    Personally I use for domains aswell as hosting, their pricing is reasonable and the reliablilty is excellent. The only downside I've found is theres no phone support, just email tickets, but the staff respond to them very quickly when you rarely need to use them.

    Oh, and as for opinons .... dont use dreamweaver, can't stand the program!

    WebObjects is not in the same category as DreamWeaver. WebObjects is an enterprise level web application framework that happens to have a small web page builder. It is a much bigger brother to Dreamweaver Ultradev, not DreamWeaver.

    For domain and hosting I use Very competative prices with full flexability, fantastico, more than ample space and bandwidth, great customer support, and free domain with purchases of hosting for a certain period of time (I think one or two years). For packages of less time, domains are about $10/year. With a two year comitment you will be paying around $7.95 a month with no domain cost.
