BlueVoda Website Builder is a web editor from VodaHost. Although BlueVoda mentions that a VodaHost account is required to publish BlueVoda files, you can publish a Web page without an account. Planning is the key. Before you publish the files, keep related files, such as images and sound files, together in a location where the Web page can easily access them. BlueVoda pages are saved with a BVD file extension, but they are saved as preview.html when viewed locally on a Web browser. You will need the FTP address, username and password from your preferred host.
