Virb was founded in June of 2008 with the help of CEO and co-founder Brad Smith. The site was intended to be a budget friendly place for anyone to create a website or online profile. Today, Virb has expanded to include offices in New York City and Culver City, California. It is currently operating under the (mt) Media Temple umbrella.

What are the differences to other apps?

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Virb holds true to its claim of offering elegant web design by presenting a matching design. Soft colors create a pleasantly attractive backdrop for the modernized logo and well organized example images. Large, prominent tabs across the top of the homepage make it very easy to navigate. Virb’s design offers both an appealing visual array of elements as well as a logical set up that encourages even inexperienced internet travelers to learn more.

How does the registration process work?

Signing up for Virb is easy, simple click the blue tab at the top right hand corner of the home page. The tab is positioned on its own alongside the “Log In” tab to make it a quick find for new visitors. Large text fields request a site tile, URL, email address, and password. After clicking the vibrant blue ”Start building your Site” button, the user is redirected to their main control panel and can begin adding items to their site. Pink pop up boxes provide important messages when relevant (these are specifically for the site and not advertisements).

What does it cost to use the application?

Virb strikes a perfect balance between free and a paid website service. Hiring a web designer and other necessary professionals can be very costly, however free websites do not always offer the same professional quality as some individuals want or need.
