  • What do you like best?

    It is one of the easiest to use blogging tools, but it is deceptively powerful. You can make TypePad into a website building platform as well as a blogging platform with ease. The design editor is still to this day one of the best ways to quickly change layout, formatting and the UI of a website without one line of code.

    What do you dislike?

    The same design editor I like is also the biggest limitation of TypePad. The themes are not as flexible as you'd like and not nearly as functional as WordPress themes. There are also no easy ways to create menu bars that are hierarchical. There is only 1 level of categories as well.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    TypePad has not seen a major update in several years. They have withstood a major DDoS attack in 2014 and are now setup to withstand future DDoS attacks. The product is excellent and stable, but is only good for the simplest websites as there is no plugin functionality.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    Creating simple websites for small businesses is easily done with TypePad. We can get a site up and running in minutes and have a fully functional site with navigation and an easy to use posting interface in a few hours.

  • TypePad.com is a great tool for anyone who is serious about blogging, but needs an economical solution. The application offers many customization options so the user can build an eye-catching blog that meets their specifications.

  • TypePad is a premium blogging service that is very well suited to the needs of serious—and tech-savvy—bloggers. Like Movable Type and WordPress, TypePad seems to be aimed at grown-ups with jobs. On the other hand, although I’ve seen dozens of very cool and very creative blogs hosted by TypePad, I suspect that, if I were 20 years old and blogging for my Irish folk band—or if I simply wanted to wet my toes in the blogging ocean—I’d pick something like Tumblr or Facebook, which are simpler and less expensive.

  • TypePad is a great choice for novice bloggers who want more flexibility than a blogging software such as Blogger.com offers but want to avoid the technical side of blogging. However, it's important to remember that there is a cost associated with TypePad, and unlike a blogging software such as Wordpress.org, TypePad is limited in the number of features, add-ins and plug-ins that are available for it. Therefore, TypePad may not be the best choice for power bloggers.

  • With search engine optimization features built-in and a professional, proactive approach, TypePad is for people who want their blogs to work for them. TypePad offers full web hosting for your blog so you can concentrate on blogging (and maybe making money).

  • The blog hosting of TypePad is comparable to the highest-ranking services, but it offers few customization features unless you sign on to the unlimited package. If you are ready to take blogging seriously and are willing to fork over some money for expanded features, then TypePad is one of the best blog sites available. It has nearly every promotion feature and design tool you could ask for.
