Google Page Creator was a website creation and hosting service by Google. It was a tool for basic website design, requiring no HTML knowledge. During development, it was codenamed Trogdor, a reference to the popular Homestar Runner website. As of August 2008, Googlepages had over 3 million users according to Google's own index.
In September 2008, Google announced that it would not accept new sign-ups to Page Creator, instead encouraging users to use Google Sites. The service had been shut down in 2009, while existing published pages migrated to Google Sites.
The features of Google Page Creator included:
Google Page Creator offered 100 megabytes of storage, more than sufficient space for a well-designed website. The bandwidth limit was unspecified.
Files that were hosted could be linked to from any other site. Storage in Page Creator could also be utilized to upload pages to any account, without using the Web interface to create the page.
Google had added many "experimental features" to Page Creator since its release, including the ability to add widgets, crop images, and resize images to any size (other than the original four preset sizes). Originally these features had to be activated by users, but they came automatically with every site until its shutdown.
